Swaganigans: What Did I Do To Deserve a 2500 SB Grand Prize?

Nobody’s perfect. We all do things wrong, even knowingly (and hopefully not maliciously), and Swagbucks is no different. Swagbucks.com has its own fair share of shortcomings whether the site goes down for maintenance or a Swagbucks survey isn’t crediting correctly. The important thing is results and we pride ourselves on getting it right and doing the right thing.

Even the Swaganigans judges make mistakes too. We would like to take this time to apologize to a certain Swaganigans contest entrant from two weeks ago who was erroneously not credited for a winning submission. He reached out to us and we happily obliged and gave him his SB. Professor Jockey is particularly proud of himself, I think his hand is starting to hurt from patting himself on the back.

With that being said, onto this week’s Swaganigans! It’s confession time guys, we want to know what you’re doing wrong. Remember in the “The Simpons” intro when Bart Simpson was writing what naughty thing he did on the blackboard over and over and over again as punishment? Well, that’s your challenge:

Type one sentence about what naughty things you are doing pertaining to your use of Swagbucks (don’t worry, you only need to type out the sentence once… unless Professor Jockey says otherwise)

We’re not trying to get anyone in trouble here, we want you to make it fun. We’re not trying to catch cheaters, stop giving us that look. Here’s an example of a silly confession:

I will not use the Swagbucks search engine for looking at pictures of Grumpy Cat at work.

I will put my pants on before I start doing Swagbucks surveys.

I will answer Daily Poll questions truthfully and not just use “eeny, meeny, miny, moe”

I will not shout out my referral link at weddings when the minister invites anyone who objects to the marriage to “speak now or forever hold their peace”
I will not use nCraves or Watch as a babysitter for my 2 year old son

As for The Swaggodore, he has some explaining to do…

First time here? Have no idea what’s going on. Don’t worry. This post will answer all your questions.

Prizes

Grand Prize gets 2,500 SB. Second Place gets 1500 SB. Other runners up get 1000 SB. And the submission with the most likes gets 500 SB.  Honorable mentions, if any, will receive 10 SB.  Any members that gets posted are immediately entered into the select group club of “Swagglers” all of whom are competing for the coveted Swaggler of the Year (i.e the member who gets posted the most). I hope the evilscotsman is keeping track?

Guidelines

Winners will  be selected on the basis of  humor, wit, wisdom, cleverness and originality. Write your entries in the comments below. 11 entries max. Please include your Swagname, city & state at the end of each entry. Entries must be posted on or before Sunday, August 16th at 11:59pm (in whatever time zone you happen to be in).

Three For All

Posted by on Fri, August 7th, 2015 at 7:50 am

We think the Three Musketeers were really onto something. It’s not just the chocolate-covered fluffy whipped chocolate goodness, but also, if you want to get a job done right, you’re better off working together. That’s why we are taking Athos, Porthos, and Aramis’ motto “all for one, and one for all” and making it even […]
