Shop and Scan – A Little Extra Income

Hubby and I found out about Shop and Scan in 2010 and haven’t looked back. Shop and Scan is a market research survey that measures people’s household grocery spending across the UK.

What is Shop and Scan?

Each week we scan our food shopping with a USB zapper and upload the barcodes to the Shop and Scan website. Along with this we scan in and upload a copy of our receipt. We are then ‘paid’ each week into a reward account that we can then withdraw from at any time in shopping vouchers.

How much do you earn with Shop and Scan?

Shop and Scan has given us approximately £150 in gift vouchers each year since 2010. These are for a multitude of shops – anything from Debenhams to Homebase, Amazon online or Cineworld cinemas – there’s something for everyone.

How do I register with Shop and Scan?

Shop and Scan is an invite only service but you can register your interest online at Volunteer4Panels and when you are eligible you will get emailed an invite. Through Shop and Scan we also get sent a lot of surveys to complete which add £1+ to our reward account each time. Shop and Scan takes a little bit of effort each week and in reality pays about £3 a week but it’s £3 a week that we didn’t have before and if you just forget about it and let it mount up it’s extra money in your Christmas fund!

    That sounds interesting. I am with Valued Opinions and Ipsos and they pay me every 2-3 months with an Amazon voucher so I can keep my Kindle topped up ! It’s really helpful.
