While some companies require you to complete a number of surveys to earn points that are then redeemable for rewards, you only need to complete the Shopper's Voice survey once a year to enjoy the rewards. Shopper's Voice consumer panel members receive ongoing rewards of membership either by email or postal mail in the form of high-value, money-saving coupons, free samples, and other relevant information. Based upon the survey information you provide about your household, you may qualify for:
- Entry into our survey sweepstakes
- Ongoing money-saving coupons, special offers, and relevant information from our trusted marketing partners
- Invitations to do quick and fun surveys which influence how companies market their products – it's an excellent opportunity to give your feedback directly to manufacturers about the products you buy.
We won't send you spam or email communications that are not relevant for you and your household.
2. How do I enter the sweepstakes drawing?
Entry to our survey sweepstakes drawing is automatic once you’ve completed and we received your survey online, as outlined in the Official Rules. No purchase is necessary to enter or to win; a purchase will not increase your chance of winning. One entry per person, per household.
3. How do you notify Shopper's Voice sweepstakes winners?
All sweepstakes winners will be notified by overnight mail or courier, and will be required to complete and return, within 14 days, an affidavit of eligibility, a liability release, and, where lawful, publicity release.

1. Will you sell my email address?
We will not sell your email address. We value your permission to send emails from Shopper’s Voice. We work with a select group of clients who are interested in providing relevant and valuable coupons, samples and offers to you based on the information you provided in the survey. These clients communicate such offers and information through Shopper’s Voice.
2. Why do you ask such personal questions i.e. age and income?
In order for companies to truly understand what consumers want, it is important for them to know more than how much of which product is purchased. They need to have a clear picture of who is buying and why they are buying. The personal questions are asked as a means to place you and your family into sub-groups. This makes it easier to understand your preferences and attitudes. The information also helps us send you the product and service offers that suit your lifestyle.
3. How do I know that the surveys/offers are from Shopper's Voice?
You will recognize our emails, as they will usually come from Shopper's Voice or Laura David. You can also scroll down to the bottom of the emails for our contact and privacy information.

Shopper’s Voice or our service providers may place a web beacon within an email message that is sent from Shopper’s Voice on behalf of our partner companies. Web beacons may be used in conjunction with cookies. Once a Shopper’s Voice email is opened, the web beacon signals that an email was opened or a link was clicked and a cookie may then be placed on your browser. This cookie enables Shopper’s Voice or our partner companies to later display an ad to you.
As part of the targeted ads you may receive, we partner with companies to evaluate your interactions with our web based and email advertisements to measure the effectiveness of the advertising. Certain non-personally identifiable information may be collected and shared with these partners, including what ad you received and when, and whether you clicked on the ad.
3. What should I do if I have technical problems while accessing or completing a survey?
We try to make our surveys compatible with all web browsers, but sometimes problems occur. If you have any technical difficulties while accessing or completing a survey, please contact us.
1. Who will see my survey answers?
Shopper's Voice determines what questions to ask on the survey based on the needs of the manufacturers and marketers we work with; however, they do not have direct access to your entire completed survey answers. The survey answers are used to create groups of consumers who may be interested in similar types of marketing messages in a process called segmentation. These groups are often based on educated guesses about what your household may look like to help us deliver offers and ads that you may find relevant.
With your permission, we provide our clients with your name and address for the purpose of communicating with you, through postal mail, relevant information, coupons, free samples and other special offers. We also provide them access through Shopper's Voice to communicate with you by email. We do not provide your email address to any other company to contact you by email.
2. How do Shopper's Voice and its clients use the answers from the survey?
We analyze the survey responses and group consumers based on these responses. We then connect our clients with these groups of consumers. These clients offer free product samples, valuable coupons, information, research, discounts and other special offers. Since what you receive is based on your responses, you will only receive relevant offers and information.
