Consumer Panel

I've been a member of a consumer panel for over a year now. It's a little different from the usual household surveys that I've encountered over the years. With this company, we are given a barcode scanner and are asked to scan all our purchases - groceries, clothes, home improvement stuff or anything that we buy that has a barcode. Every week, we are supposed to upload our data then we are awarded points that we can redeem for cash.

My younger brother who works in the Philippines was quite impressed that we had our own personal scanners. As far as he knew, our counterparts in the Philippines would have to list their purchases one by one. Now that would be tedious!!

Anyway, if you're interested in joining and are living in the US, let me know, ok?
