How would you love to win a FREE $500 American Express Gift Card?! Well, you may able to do just that if you join the Nielsen National Consumer Panel. Yep, the Nielsen National Consumer Panel is offering up 25 FREE $500 American Express Gift Cards to its members every month and 40 FREE $500 American Express Gift Cards to its members every quarter! So a total of 115 winners every quarter (when also adding in the 25 winners per month)! Wowza!

If you would like to be entered to win one of these awesome gift cards, head over here to try to sign up for the Nielsen National Consumer Panel. As a panel member, the Nielsen National Consumer Panel will provide you with a hand-held scanner and every time you or members of your household shop, you’ll use the scanner to scan the bar codes on all of your purchases (you can even have your kids join in on the fun and scan all your items while shopping!). Then, once a week, you’ll send in your purchase information.

In addition to earning points (which are redeemable for electronics, household items, jewelry, toy, gift cards, and more), you’ll also earn one entry into the monthly sweepstakes (up to 4 entries every month!); and as I said above, every month, 25 panel members win a $500 American Express Gift Card! Plus, every quarter an additional 40 panel members win a $500 American Express Rewards card just by sending purchase information in every week of a month. Awesome! 😀

But wait…. it gets even better! For each week in a qualifying quarter that National Consumer Panel receives your purchase information, you will earn one entry into their Grand Prix Sweepstakes where you can win $20,000 (there is one winner every quarter!).

Interested? Head on over here and fill out the application and you’ll be on your way to becoming an NCP panelist! Keep in mind that not all areas may be needing panelists at this time, so you’ll need to first register to find out if they’re currently needing panelists in your area.

Side note, I know the National Consumer panel is not for everyone as I have heard good and bad reviews. However, lots of readers have signed up and been really happy with the program.

  • HIP List
  • Print

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, first head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing in classic view.

If you prefer to view in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you! If there are deals (or portions of deals) that you are not interested in printing, just click on the red x button to remove them. To restore a section, click on the green arrow icon in the upper right hand corner.
