Anyone using an NCP scanner?

I just got mine. I've scanned a few minor things. Used it today after grocery shopping and it wasn't too bad but still seems like a good amount of work for the rewards offered. I wouldn't mind just scanning purchases but inputting if the item was on sale and if coupons were used gets annoying... Wish I did a little more research before signing up.

I tried the scanner about 2 years ago and it was a huge pain. Ended up sending it back after about 2-3 months. Took way too much time, not quick

Yep, I had it for a few weeks but it was a pain so I returned it. I wouldn't have minded (the hassle of inputting everything) if the rewards had been something I found useful, but like others have mentioned - the rewards are not great.

Thanks for the replies! Looks like it isn't going to be worth the effort, but i'll plug on for a little bit.

I can't even get mine delivered! I'm never home at the time when FedEx wants to deliver, and now, reading these posts, I kind of want to just refuse delivery and get it sent back.

I signed up about a year ago and as soon as I got the scanner in the mail, I sent it right back! The rewards/prizes are total crap and not even remotely worth my time. I'd make 1,000 times more using Swagbucks. Lol

I tried a couple of months ago, we had a death in the family and they kept calling every couple of days to ask me if I needed help in transmitting, etc. I explained the situation a couple of times, they just kept calling. I was very frustrated.

I could not get the scanner to work properly, I buy a lot of fresh foods without scanner codes...it was more hassle than it was worth and I sent it back.

I have had one for a little over 1 year. When I wasn't working I did not mind the extra work to scan in stuff. Since I went back to work I have not been as good at scanning. I get more points from surveys than I dO from scanning.

I haven't redeemed any points yet.

Way too much work for the little you get from them.

I use it, but the rewards aren't that great. I also don't scan everything because I found that scanning one thing gets me the weekly rewards just as well as scanning everything. I apparently only buy small amounts of stuff, according to transmitted data.
