Reminders/Tips

Here are some tips and pointers to help you be successful with the 2013 purchase diary!

  • You can log into the diary as often as you’d like and record items as soon as you purchase them.
  • Add the diary Web site to your “Favorites” section for easy reference.
  • If you’d like to keep a paper record of your purchases, download a log sheet (click the “Download a Printable Log Sheet” link on the left side of the Home page). This tool is available to help you keep track of purchases, but know that all information must be recorded in the online diary.
  • Record the brand of your purchase. This is sometimes denoted by symbols like ® or ™ on an item’s packaging or the back of single cards. Please do your best to decipher the brand and record it in your diary.
  • It’s OK if you don’t have any purchases to record during a particular time period. In these cases, you don’t need to record anything—just complete the time period at its finish. You’ll be asked to confirm that you didn’t make any purchases, which will let me know you’re still participating.

Login Lottery

Each time period, we’ll randomly award 500 points to 1,429 participants—just for logging in! If you’re selected to win the Login Lottery, a message will appear onscreen to let you know. Please note that you’re only eligible to win the Login Lottery once per time period.

Follow this three-step process to close out at the end of each time period!

If you’re sure you want to close out, click the “Continue Completion Process” link at the bottom of the page. If you still have purchases to record, click the “Stop Completion Process” link.
