Seasons greetings from NCP! James here, and as you can see, I’m decked out in my, uh, well, holiday best is probably debatable, but this is that wonderful time of the year where holiday plans, parties, gifts, decorations, and even questionable fashion statements are all in our minds.

And of course it’s the perfect time to tell NCP about your holiday purchases, whether you’re buying the essentials for the holiday meal, picking up snacks for a party, buying gifts for family and friends, or even stopping for a cup of hot chocolate on the go, we want to know and so do product makers and retailers.

Your holiday purchases help them to make decisions that will impact other consumers during future holiday seasons and throughout the year to come. Remember, scanning and reporting your shopping trips to NCP earns you reward points that you can use to redeem for a wide selection of gift cards. It’s the perfect time of the year to use those gift cards for holiday purchases. On behalf of everyone at the National Consumer Panel, we want to wish you and your family and friends happy holidays and all the best in the new year.
