    Shop & Scan 7th Mar 14 at 2:58 PM
    As the Shop and Scan thread is getting long now and people are asking for referrals I thought it was about time for a new thread. Old thread here http://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/showthread.php?t=321950

    Please note that registration is by invite only but you can register your interest in joining the panel here www.volunteer4panels.com

    How it works

    What we ask you to do
    Scanning in your shopping

    Every time you or anyone else in your household buys something which is brought back home, please scan.

    We also ask you to provide us with an image of your till receipt whenever you make a shopping trip. The best way to do so is by scanning the receipt with a flatbed/copy scanner. If you do not have one then you can take a photo using a digital camera instead.

    At the end of EACH week please remember to transmit your barcodes and upload your till receipts...

    Connect the Clicker to your PC
    Visit www.shopandscan.com
    Click on Transmit your Barcodes
    Clicker and Lead Arrow Address Bar Arrow Transmit Button
    After transmitting your barcodes please also Submit your Till Receipts.

    Your weekly reward points will then be added to your Reward Account on the following Monday.

    What we offer in return

    Reward Points

    As thanks for your participation, we will enrol you in our Reward Points Programme as soon as you register with us.
    We will regularly credit your account with points in exchange for your continued participation in the ShopandScan survey.
    You can review you balance at any time by logging into your Reward Account.

    As soon as you have enough points, you may redeem them for any vouchers from the wide selection available.

    Or you can accumulate your points for even greater rewards... the choice is yours.

    Membership is free for you... there are no hidden costs associated with redemption of your Reward Points.

    Your allowed up to midnight Monday if unable to submit your scanner for the week; however, receipts are to be received by midnight Sunday.

    Don't want to get kicked off. Nearly did when I was a new mum and wasn't doing much shopping myself. They threatened to close my account as I wasn't scanning and uploading enough.

    The new scanner doesn't use a battery, it could be that it might need resetting, try pressing and holding down the smaller button towards the rear of the scanner see if that helps as it appears to be a reset button.

    Has anyone on the shop and scan panel ever been asked to send a photo of a product?

    I have recently received this

    "We need your help! You have recently scanned a product and we require more information on this item. We appreciate you taking the time to help, so in turn we will award you 200 points.
    What We Would Like You To Do
    We would like you to take two or three pictures of the product and upload them to us via the link below. The images should include:
    • The front of the product including the product name
    • The size of the pack
    • Nutritional information, if available
    • The barcode

    There are full instructions and example images on the website. Please do not send the images as a reply to this email."


    I received 200 points as per the email stated

    Just wondered if anyone else has encountered this request!!

    The Points appear as "Project radar" on the statment

    I have just received an invite to do a week long survey similar to the food diary but this time recording what food you throw away. Looks easy & interesting and pays 10000 points if you do it all week.

    200 points not to be sniffed at though

    Amazon e-codes
    Has anyone on here known shop and scan rewards to run out of Amazon e-codes? I'm just wondering if they've actually stopped them rather than run out. Any info much appreciated.
    TIA

    Amazon E codes are back in stock. I'd grab them quick if I were you. They were out of stock quite a while this time. So may go quick.

    At least they seem aware of it by putting up the error message, so no points lost I assume
