A Look Back At 2011: A Letter From The CEO

Posted by on Sat, December 31st, 2011 at 6:00 pm

Dear Swaggernauts,

I hope everyone had a great holiday season full of Swag Bucks earned and prizes redeemed. This is the first time that I’m addressing you with a letter, and I wanted to reach everyone from young guppies to die hard daily NOSO visitors; from those who watched more Hollywood gossip on SBTV than they care to admit to those of you who completed a survey about the most random subjects.

I wanted to personally thank you from the bottom of my heart for being part of this wonderful, caring and growing group of friends we lovingly refer to as the Swag Nation.

2011 was a very rewarding year with a record number of users signing up, earning, participating on our Facebook fan page, redeeming more prizes than ever before and donating to worthy causes. It is so wonderful to see our vision of a trusted rewards community that can help users every day come to fruition; my greatest pleasure, however,  comes from our ability to touch people’s lives on a daily basis in such a real and powerful way in these tough times.

We hear from you daily and there are so many great stories: The Swaggernaut who used up all her Swag Bucks to buy Christmas toys for her friend and their child who had nothing, or the Swaggernaut who had her 8th child (mommy and son are doing well) and was able to earn enough Swag Bucks to buy diapers among other necessities that her budget would not have otherwise allowed.

In 2012 we will continue working hard to improve Swagbucks and add value to your online experience with more ways to earn in more places with more prizes. At the cost of sounding like an Oscar winner or an athlete, I want to thank G-d, the Swagbucks.com team whom I have the pleasure to work with every day; I especially want to thank you, the Swag Nation who makes it all possible.

Happy New Year from our family to yours and may all your dreams and aspirations come true in 2012!

~Josef

P.S. – Here’s a code worth 12 Swag Bucks until 6am PST to help you ring in the New Year!
