Twitter Tuesday Phrase That Pays – 3/23

Posted by on Tue, March 23rd, 2010 at 7:05 am


It’s 8:00 am PDT on Tuesday morning – do you know where your tweets are? TSG here with another installment of Twitter Tuesday Phrase That Pays (a.k.a. TTPTP). As you know, I like turning to the community of Swaggernauts for ideas and inspiration in coming up with the Phrase That Pays. This week’s suggestions came from the four corners of Swag Nation and when the final votes were tallied, the most requested phrase was March Swagness.

Yes folks, March Swagness – a play on the term March Madness, better known as the Holy Grail of College Basketball. Of course, you don’t need to know anything about college basketball to participate, let alone win the TTPTP. All you really need is the following:

  • First, make sure you have a Twitter account, it’s free to create an account and sign up.
  • Second, make sure you follow Swag Bucks.
  • Third, create a message in 140 characters that has BOTH March Swagness and ‘@swagbucks’. The more creative the better!
  • Fourth, enter that message into the “What’s Happening” box on the Home screen. Hit the “Tweet” button to broadcast your message to the world, and sit back and wait for TSG to (hopefully) award you for your wit and creativity.

For people still struggling to create a compelling message, I highly recommend reading the blog comments, as well as running a twitter search for the term “March Swagness”. You’ll find the inventiveness of Swag Nation in full display. That always helps me come up with a few good ideas!

There you are…I’ll announce the winner on this blog tomorrow.

P.S. Ordinarily I hook up the Swaggernaut who suggested the Phrase That Pays with bonus Swag Bucks. However, due to the high number of people who suggested the phrase March Swagness, it wouldn’t be right, or even feasible to select just one user. Thanks to everyone for your wonderful suggestions, and keep ‘em coming!

If you’ve been clicking around the Swag Store the last few days you may have noticed that about a dozen more EcoUsable, stainless steel bottles have made their way back into the store. Over a thousand Swaggernauts have already snagged an EcoUsable bottle from the Swag Store since we introduced them last year, and everyone ... Read More »

TSG Presents: Great Moments in Movie History – A Tribute

Posted by on Sun, March 14th, 2010 at 2:06 pm
I can’t lie: I have a soft spot in my heart for all things 80′s. Some of my favorite items in the Swag Store are 80′s related (old school Nintendo games, trading cards, comic books and movie posters). Heck, upon TSG’s suggestion months ago, we added a Lost Boys official movie poster to the Swag ... Read More »

This Is Your Facebook. This Is Your Facebook On Swag Bucks.

Posted by on Sun, March 14th, 2010 at 11:19 am
TSG recently came across some very interesting numbers. It turns out that 90% of Swaggernauts have a facebook account; but 75% of those people have not yet signed onto facebook through Swagbucks.com (which would allow them to see their personal news feed right on our home page). Then again, TSG also heard that 47.1 % ... Read More »

Another Predictive Poll!

Posted by on Tue, March 9th, 2010 at 1:21 pm
Last season during the Biggest Loser, we did predictive polls of who would be eliminated as the show started winding down. If you watch the show, you already know that teams have been separated into Black vs. Blue. Why not start the poll madness now? Traditionally, we offered larger than normal Swag Codes for correct ...

So long Vancouver

Posted by on Sun, February 28th, 2010 at 4:32 pm
TSG has always been a fan of the Olympics. Winter, Summer – doesn’t really make a difference. I guess there’s just something reassuring in the predictability of it all. From the majestic, and apparently never-changing, sounds of the opening theme music, to the way that TV networks unfailingly divide the air time between competitive coverage, ... Read More »
