Participants in the Swagbucks Wish List Giveaway promotion (the “Promotion”) agree that they have read, understood and accepted these Official Rules and agree to be bound by them, including all eligibility requirements and decisions of the Sponsor (defined below). We recommend that you print out and keep a copy of these official rules (“Official Rules”) for future reference.


1. ENTRY PERIOD: The Promotion begins at 12:00 a.m. on November 28, 2014 and ends at 11:59 p.m. on December 1, 2014 (the “Entry Period”).

Sponsor reserves the right to make changes to the Promotion schedule, these Official Rules, Sponsor’s Terms or to discontinue the Promotion, at any time, for any reason or no reason.


2. HOW TO ENTER: There is only ONE (1) way to gain entry into the Promotion (an “Entry”).
