    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

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

    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
    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.

    Hi. Many thanks for replies. I thought they were doubting what I had scanned. I guess not.

    I've been asked to give extra details/photos twice recently, first was a candle bought in Poundland, second was a Christmas card from Poundstretcher. The points don't come through straight away but they did appear a couple of weeks later, you get the usual email notification when they're added.

    As I understand it they have lists of barcodes for items per shop ect so if a new barcode from a shop is supplied from us that they do not have by us supplying it they can then add it to their lists.
    One I had a request for some years back was for a product I bought from one of the big supermarkets but when zapping I zapped against another one by mistake.I sent the requested details {including photos of the packet and the code} was given the extra points and had an email letting me know that what I had transmitted was a mistake.
