When I received an offer to join this site, I was very skeptical. All I had to do was scan my purchases and earn points and then cash in the points for money? It sounded too good to be true. But after a year of being a member, I think it is totally worth it! You receive the equipment from the company free of charge and then you simply just scan your purchases - anything you purchase (and that you want to scan). I personally don't scan EVERY purchase, but the majority of them. You are not required to scan EVERY purchase as part of the program, but they encourage it for research and survey purposes. Then you can earn more points by participating in surveys. I also joined their partner program RX Pulse. This program is no way to get rich quick, but it has put an extra $10 or $25 bucks in my pocket at times! And for me, that is worth it. My kids even have fun scanning the groceries when I go food shopping! You don't get rewarded in cash or check, but by refillable debit card (that you use as a credit card). This is where you have to be careful because you CAN NOT go over the amount on your card or you will be charged a fee. And you have 3 months to use the balance on the card or you are charged a fee for keeping a balance. This is really the only "catch" that I have encountered but as long as you don't mind keeping up on your balance, it isn't a problem. I don't mind doing this. Anytime I have needed "spare cash" for a small purchase here or there, I have had it. And I usually only refill in $10 increments so that in one or two purchases, the balance is gone. I recommend this program. As a stay at home mom who adds to the family income by reducing what I spend instead of "earning" a paycheck, it has been very helpful to me and I like the fact that perhaps my purchases are making a difference in the marketplace.
