Happy Saturday, Swaggernauts! I hope everyone’s weekend is off to a great starts!

Let’s look back on yet another exciting week here at Swagbucks.

On Monday we started the Semi-Finals of our Mom Madness tournament – the search for the Ultimate Mom! We started off with our Cartoon Moms, where Marge Simpson took on Jane Jetson. After a tough battle, Marge Simpson took the first victory in our Semi-Finals.

On Tuesday, Monica from our Customer Support department wrote a blog post about problems with logging into your Swagbucks account. If you are experiencing any issues, you might want to check out these tips before you contact support. In our Mom Madness tournament, our last two remaining Movie Moms went head-to-head.  Sarah Connor beat out Edna Turnblad and is moving on in the competition.

On Wednesday we hit 500,000 likes on our Facebook Fan Page!!  This was – and still is – very exciting, and we thank every one of you helped us reach this unbelievable number!  Next up in the Mom Madness tournament was day 1 of our 2-day TV Moms Semi-Finals.  After your votes, it was the end of the road for Morticia Addams and Jill Taylor took the victory.

On Thursday we celebrated 500,000 likes on our Facebook page.  We played a bunch of fun games on the wall, and gave out a whole lot of Swag Bucks!  In the 2nd day of our TV Moms Semi-Finals, Carol Brady knocked out Sophia Petrillo.

Yesterday we announced the exciting updates we made to the Gift Card section of the Swag Store.  You can now sort the prizes by price – viewing cards that are worth different increments: $5 and Less, $10-$20, $25, $50, $100 and up.  We’ve also added a bunch of new cards for a variety of places.  Check out the new section here.  In Mom Madness, our two remaining TV Moms, Carol Brady and Jill Taylor, went head-to-head.  Check back on Monday to find out which mom will be representing the TV Moms category!

I hope you guys enjoy the rest of your Saturday!
