Scan Barcodes and Get Rewarded with National Consumer Panel

Disclosure: We’re letting you know that this post contains sponsored links which The Smart Wallet receives compensation for, which may impact their order of appearance because talking about money should always be an honest discussion.

The exclusive National Consumer Panel program is opening up again for more participants! Check to see if your location is eligible on your iOS and Android.

When you become a panelist, you receive a handheld scanner or access to a mobile app. When you scan the barcodes of items you purchase, you earn points that you can redeem for:

  • Visa Gift Cards
  • Tablets
  • Keurig Coffee Machines
  • Flat Screen TVs
  • and much more from their gift catalog!

The more you share your shopping habits (scan barcodes on your iOS and Android), the more rewards you can get. You can also input items that do not have a barcode too. When you share your opinions, they’ll be passed to the manufacturers/retailers that make the same products you buy to improve their products.

“It’s really easy. I think of it like a game, and I look forward to scanning my items each time. I’ve already gotten a $25 gift card after 2 months!” – Gabby F.

There are also monthly drawings where 20 members each win $250!

Sign up to see if you’re eligible to be a National Consumer Panelist (iOS and Android). If you don’t get accepted this time, don’t worry! They’re always expanding locations, so check back again.
