I used to make New Year’s resolutions, but I usually ended up never following through. So, I decided to give them up altogether. But that doesn’t mean I don’t set personal goals for myself or make lists of things I want to do, and places I want to go, throughout the year (just not at the start of each new year!).

You can set goals at any time, or not at all.

NCP Panel Membership Tips/Goals For The New Year

Here are some tips/goals to help you make the most of your panel membership in the new year. As a NCP panel member, you have the unique opportunity to make your consumer voice heard and influence what you see on store shelves. And, your household represents other households just like yours across the U.S.

Consistent and accurate reporting of your shopping trips each week is the key to getting the most out of your panel membership and accumulating reward points.

Scan purchases from all types of stores. And, scan purchases made by other household members, too.

Scan every shopping trip, large or small.

Carefully chose the correct store name from your store list. If you can’t find the name of the store you shopped at, then choose the generic store type (such as food store, department store, drugstore, etc.).

If you use coupons or get special deals such as store sales or other discounts, be sure to include that information when scanning.

Scan UPC-barcoded items, and report non-barcoded items as well, using the Non-Barcoded Items list in the NCPMobile app or the Barcode Reference Booklet if you use NCP’s handheld scanner (if you switched from using the scanner to using the app, please don’t use the booklet anymore).

Participate in NCP’s special games/promotions.

Answer all the NCP surveys you receive.

If you can’t scan for a period of time for any reason, please be sure to contact our Panel Support Center to let them know so your membership will remain in good standing.

I hope you found these tips/goals to be helpful!
