I've been a member of this group for two years and really enjoy it. All I do is scan the items I purchase (with the scanner they provide), put it on the dock and it sends automatically on Saturday via our router.
You DO NOT need a phone line to participate in this (I don't have one).
How it works:
Once you receive your scanner fromNational Consumer Panel just start scanning the purchases you make (I do it as I put my groceries away), after your scans transmit each week you will receive points. The longer you're with them the more points you'll get, you will also receive bonus points, points for completing short surveys and entries into sweepstakes, you then redeem those points for great rewards! I'm currently at 40,000 pts, which is enough to some very decent items from their reward catalog, but I'm going to save them up for something that I really want or need :)
I truely enjoy participating in this group and recommend it to anyone who doesn't mind taking a little extra time scanning their purchases while putting them away.
Once you become a NCP panel member all you have to do is scan and send
them your household purchase information every week with a handheld
scanner that they provide. For each week of the month NCP receives your
purchase information, you will earn one entry into the Monthly

That’s up to FOUR entries every month! Every month, 25 panel members
That’s not all… Every quarter an additional 40 panel members win a $500
American Express Rewards card just by sending purchase information in
every week of a month. For each week in a qualifying quarter NCP
receives your purchase information you will earn one entry into their
Grand Prix Sweepstakes where you can win $20,000! Every quarter one
lucky panel member wins!
