    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.

    Food On The Go is an app you download, when you buy something (e.g. a sandwich from a supermarket) you scan the barcode and answer the questions e.g. where did you buy it from, who was it bought for, cost. Then you submit the info and you get your points weekly. If you don't buy anything that week you still need to submit "nothing bought" (it's a clear option when you open the app) to get your points.

    I think I get 250 points per week as a baseline, then you get extra for your submissions, I think it's 100 but I can't remember exactly. The app is easy to use so he shouldn't have any issues.
    Anchor yourself to the foundations of everything you love.

    Thank you to all those who post competitions!

    Amazon e-codes haven!!!8217;t been available for some weeks - or if they have been available between times when I!!!8217;ve looked, then I!!!8217;ve been unlucky. I emailed shopandscan about this last week and got a very unsatisfactory reply that didn!!!8217;t even address the issue. This makes me suspect that amazon vouchers aren!!!8217;t going to reappear any time soon. I!!!8217;ve built up quite a stock of points now, and as there!!!8217;s no other reward that appeals, I!!!8217;m at the point of considering giving up.

    Thank you Snowglo - amazon e codes are the only thing I use my points for too. It will be disappointing if they are no longer going to be available

    Has anyone received extra points for a "special award"?
    I have had a random 7500 points added. And I have no idea what it's for.
    One award of 5500. And two awards of 1000.

    Mind you, the way they've been recently - had an email from them saying that I had not been scanning properly (sending me into a bit of a panic), then a day later another one saying, sorry, the first one had been sent in error, and everything was fine !

    I do both. Easy, and has option of selecting not to be monitored if you wish not to for some things, such as a child is viewing being monitored

    PS, should add my viewing and surfing must be very boring for them to monitor, especially as I assume they want to see what adverts you watch / click. I skip all adverts using PVR, have adblock installed and never click links. Points still accrue so I guess even nil advert watching counts

    Food diary problem
    I am half way through my 2nd week of food diary. Got an email today saying the link i use is no longer valid amd they will send me a new one later innthe week. I thought the idea was that you complete it as you go. Its a pain having to write it all down and then rush to complete it before the deadline.
    I phoned them and the assistant said she would look into it and come back to me.
    Not heard back from them. Anyone elsee with same problem

    Yep, bit frustrating as I was literally about to input my final meal of the final day and suddenly I couldn't access the site.

    Last time I did a food diary they extended it to a second week, which I was pleased about as it's money for old rope (I write down what I eat anyway at the moment because I'm dieting), but I suppose there's no chance of that this time around if they haven't got a working website.

    I remember what i eat but when you have to complete the family its more tricky. I will probably have to make it up as i am not writing down everything my son or hubby has eaten or admits to eating. Its annoying. They must have known, would have been better if they give you the option to start the 2nd week once you have new link

    Hi. I have just been sent an invitation to join shop and scan which I have done and am now awaiting my clicker and book. I do my shopping via click and collect and get a A4 receipt when I collect it from Asda. Is this OK to scan and upload as my till receipt? Will be gutted after waiting about 8 years to join if I can't do it this way. Thanks for any help.

    I joined Shop and Scan ages ago but I found it to much of a pain to do when it turned out to be for no reward as the only one of the rewards I had any opportunity to use would be the advertsised Amazon vouchers. However when I was there these only exsisted on Shop and Scans avertising material, not to actually be claimed. I wrote them an email aboout this and they got grumpy and started not believing my shopping scans, so I abandoned it. Wasn't worth the aggro.
