I have been invited to join IRI shopper panel and wondered if anyone is also a member and if so is it worth my time joining?
Is it a good scheme or a waste of time?
Do you have to spend hours for little reward?
are the rewards worth it?
Do you have the hand held scanner or use your phone?
Thanks in advance for your honest feedback.

Want more real mum questions sent to you?


Ask your question

  • Have people found this program to have good rewards?



  • I’ve just signed up – will feedback on how it goes :-)



  • I had not heard of this & would have been interested in giving it a go but apparently they don’t want me after completing my details on their form. Another good one is Purkle (used to be called 9rewards) They send surveys & you can use points to buy vouchers for a variety of retailers like JB hifi & I have used those points for quite a few electrical purchases



  • Sounds like alot of work for little reward, i really enjoy pureprofile and manage to redeem $50 every 60 days.



  • I am a member and already got few vouchers. You just get use to get home and scan the groceries shop, you will get more motivated once you get your first reward.



  • Oh wow. Thanks for asking this question. I hadn’t heard of it but it sounds like something that I might give a try now



  • I joined once, had trouble with the scanner and from memory i believe it was returned and reposted to me about 3 times, i then got pregnant and decided i didnt have time to scan receipts in from different shops and type info in per product. As well as keeping up with current pages such as this i didnt think i could do it all. I sent it all back.
    I did not get the chance to recieve any rewards.
    Thinking back on it now i do believe with a bit more time management it could easily be done.



  • I’m a member of the IRI Shopper panel for about 4yrs now & have just recently switched from the scanner to an app called Scan & Go (which makes scanning easier). I think its worth it – if you scan weekly you earn 300 points a week plus if you scan each of the 4 weeks per month you get bonus super shopper points which is an extra 500 points – All up you can earn 1700 points a month plus you get the odd surveys which you can earn points for as well – last two I got worth 250 points each. As far as converting points you can buy products from gift shop which has kids toys – these start at 5574 points , get prepaid credit cards -$25 = 8272 points $100 = 29229 points, homewares, Flexi eGift cards & vouchers/movie tickets & hampers . In my time of being a member I have bought a couple of toys for my 4 grandchildren & just recently redeemed 2 x $100 pre-paid credit cards which I gave to my youngest two daughters as a gift as they are just both in the process of moving out on their own in separate towns for their careers.



  • Love it!! It is a lot easier now then it used to be scan the barcodes i have earnt about $100 this year (missed a few bonus ones) but so glad as its something for nothing!!



  • Not a member of this panel – but there are plenty of answers for you to get a good idea – helpful answers too. I may even look into it now?



  • I haven’t tried it myself but am a member & also want to see what others think



  • I find it is more effort then it is worth.
    I used my ipad so it was a nuisance scanning everything. I gave up on it.
    I also found in the beginning they would call me if I hadn’t scanned anything that week, always would call on the way home from work/daycare pick up time.



  • It is legit and a great way to earn some extra vouchers for shopping. Its easy as well, I Just scan my shopping as I put it away. Here is the link to it if anyone is interested to have a look or join up: https://www.facebook.com/irishoppers/posts/1271153289680169



  • It doesn’t really interest me, cheers.



  • It seems mostly positive comments. I didn’t post this question but found the answers very useful.
