Imagine being rewarded for something most of us do at least once a week, I am of course, referring to shopping. Well this is what happens when you become a panel member of A C Nielson – Fact Finders. I received an email invitation from Toluna at the beginning of November 2008, and after answering...

Almost something for nothing

Adds about ten minutes to a shopping trip

Well, there I was, with time on my hands and thinking I’ll write an op on something that’s not well documented. And what do I find, Moose has beaten me to it! Her excellent op gives a good idea of what Fact Finders is about, but there have been some changes of late and I think it’s worthwhile to...

Bit of a hassle scanning your shopping!

Are you one of the masses that, every Friday night, trawl around the nearest supermarket. Do you dread that “bumper car” experience with your trolley, do you get annoyed when your partner/children stops to sniff/read/play with whatever it is that Asda/Tescos/Sainsburys/Safeway et al.. have...

Can be a chore

Admittedly I've always been a sucker for reward schemes and this is certainly one in it's true form, so when I heard about the idea I thought I'd give it a go. Fact Finders is a company who specialise in researching people's shopping habits for the benefit of market research. Presumably they then...

Quick and easy to do. Good rewards.

Small problem with redeeming reward points on-line...

I have been scanning my shopping with Fact Finders for over a year now and have had no problems. The setting up of the wand at each scanning session is a bit of a bore as you have to go through the when,who and where bit for each shop but apart from that I enjoy scanning. It does not take long...

time spent scanning shopping

I have been scanning with Fact Finders for approximately three years now and unfortunately I do have the problem with the phone ringing in the middle of the night. However, it only rings once, maybe twice and as I do not sleep too well anyway it does not really bother me, I have turned the...

I came across Factfinders in the same sort of way as Moose and Netsation, by recieving a survey in the post. As I enjoy filling in surveys I sent it back and low and behold a large box arrived with the scanner, video and handbook in. Oh - Factfinders is a consumer club which has you scan all your...

Non that I have found yet

Looking at the last review it was a few years ago, I have being 'scanning' for about 6 months now. It is really the easiest thing going. the scanner and base station are really smallm scanner just being about 10 cm tall and fits well in the hand and the base station about 5 cm across. You just...

I can't really add anything new to the excellent reviews thus far, but what I would say is that the company does seem professional and the monthly newsletter and regular reward points invoice that you recieve at least give the impression that your input has been recoginsed, Unlike many other survey websites. The tantalising competitions featured in the Fact Finders magazine are ever more appealing due to the knowledge that members are entered automatically, without trivial quizes to answer. (I might add though that neither I or my friends and family have won anything, but we live in hope!) After entering various test and vote like survey websites with little or no joy, Fact Finders at least gives you more opportunity to be part of the "collective" so to speak. It doesn't matter how much or little you shop in one week. Just scan it! If you've time, Fact Finders is worth a go!

I have recently signed up with fact finders and am very impressed with them. You are sent a hand held scanner and you scan any shopping you purchase. The scanner is placed in the base which is connected to the phone line and the informtion is sent automatically on a Saturday night. I have broadband and was told that so long as you have a micro filter is should not be affected. I found that, although I still had connection, the connection speed was slowing down. I informed fact finders and they suggested sending the info manually so that I don't have to leave the base connect all the time. I am doing this now and it works great!

More ways to earn points for gifts

Large keyring to carry around

I recieved a call from one of factfinders friendly staff asking if i would be willing to enter a new survey. The new survey would be a small portable scanner to take with you when you are out to scan the small things like crisps, sweets and take aways, mostly all the things you wouldnt bring home...
