Week in Review – June 30, 2013

Posted by on Sun, June 30th, 2013 at 11:00 am

Things are heating up, not only in the Los Angeles area at Swag Central but also with the announcement of events and improvements around Swagbucks.  Let’s review last week before we find out some exciting things coming up.

On Monday TSG gave us tips for making the most of SBTV and Scotty K suggested the summer blockbuster World War Z for our entertainment.

Since Tuesday was 6/25 we celebrated Halfway to the Holidays with 40 SBs in extra swag codes and met DSimms72 who shared her story about how swagbucks has helped her through tough times.

Wednesday brought the Wednesday Game Challenge of Drop 3 where you could win 200 Swag Bucks just for playing a game.  Not too shabby!  We also met Joe of the Product Team who gave us inside information of new things to expect around swagbucks in the coming months including a new homepage experience.  What are you most excited about?

Eron, the Chief Rewards Officer gave us the notice on Thursday that beginning July 1st, the Rewards Store will exclusively feature Gift Cards (including your favorites – amazon, PayPal and Walmart) and the ability to donate to charity.

But that wasn’t it for Thursday, our buddy TSG announced the next set of Collector’s Bills: Swagbucks Around the World - celebrating the countries of Swagbucks, beginning at midnight tonight. (Are you counting down?  I am!) Also on Thursday I popped in to let you know that survey credits will now be called Answers in the ledger.

As the work week came to a close on Friday, Becky and the Book Club met to discuss The Book Thief by Markus Zusak as well as share the news that the Book Club is going to take the summer off.  We also celebrated Mega Swag Bucks Day with larger search wins all day long.  How did you do on MSBD? Hal from Team Swagbucks started the weekend right by sharing a Friday Funny.

On Saturday  Justin challenged everyone with Flip-out with the Weekend Game Challenge.  It’s not too late to play and enter, you could win 200 Swag Bucks!

So you can see that it was a very busy week around Swag Central!  But we aren’t stopping yet, we have a week of fun set up for this coming week and I have special inside knowledge that you will definitely want to be here on Monday July 8th!  Mark that on your calendar so you don’t forget!

See you next Sunday for another Week in Review!  Until then…

Happy Swaggin’!
