  1. I would love to give this a try, but they are not accepting new households in my area. ūüôĀ Maybe next time.

  2. It can take a lot of time sometimes, but overall I love it!

  3. I did this for almost a year and hated it. It takes a TON of time. Most of the stores I shop at you have to scan the item and enter the price and how many you bought. Sometimes it took almost an hour after I got home to scan one shopping trip (even longer if I had gone to more than one store). AND my husband’s purchases never got entered because he would buy stuff when he was at work (like a snack at a gas station) and of course he’s not going to save the wrapper and receipt for me to scan when he gets home. The worst part is that the prizes aren’t worth the amount of points. It takes FOREVER to get points for anything worth the time it takes to scan and take surveys. They do have good prizes but it would take years to finally get them. Seriously, after a year of a lot of time, I only had enough points to get a $10 gift card and an exercise DVD set (probably only worth $5). I only cashed them in so I could quit because I was so tired of doing it I didn’t care anymore. Try it if you want, but it isn’t worth it…
