I have found a way to earn gift cards by scanning my weekly food shopping. The service offering this is Shop and Scan Ireland.
What is Shop and Scan Ireland?
Shop and Scan is Ireland’s leading market research survey panel which measures the purchasing of households across Ireland. The information provided by panellists is used by retailers and manufacturers to understand how popular, or not, the products they make and sell are.
I stumbled across Shop and Scan Ireland on a promoted Facebook post earlier this year. Intrigued I checked it out and to be honest, I felt it was a scam. However, after some investigation, I found it was/is a legit way to earn “income” on your weekly shopping.
As a Shop and Scan panel member you’ll receive rewards – usually in the form of points. These points can be exchanged for selected high street gift vouchers. You can also donate your points to one of the chosen charities.
I applied to Shop and Scan Ireland and was approved for an account (panel number: 839177). A couple of weeks later my scanner and information book arrived. The booklet gives great detail on how to use and submit your scans.
Once your home from the store or your groceries have been delivered, scan all the food items you’ve bought.
Once a week you upload your barcode scans and submit the till receipts. That’s all it takes. You will need to have a computer/laptop running Windows to download the application needed for your till receipts.
I’ve been using it since April 2018 and have earned 4,400 points. I’ve cashed out 3,240 of these to get 2 x €15 One4all vouchers. €30 in free money for just scanning my weekly shopping…BOOM.
This is not a paid post, I genuinely love this service and wanted to share it with you all. As far as I’m aware Kantar Worldpanel have this service available worldwide, it’s worth checking out whatever corner of the world you’re from.
