The Big September Swag Giveaway

74 Comments

One of the cool parts of attending Microsoft Ignite is being able to collect all of the latest pieces of swag and goodies from Microsoft and from the different vendors across the big Microsoft ecosystem! With Ignite going virtual this year, we will unfortunately miss collecting goodies and stickers this year in person. This is why I am organizing a big September Swag Giveaway!

Since I usually travel to over 20 in-person conferences every year, I always try and collect extra goodies from big conferences such as Microsoft Ignite, and then give them away to smaller conferences and user groups such as SharePoint Saturdays! Since all in-person events have been cancelled this year, I want to use this opportunity to share all of this with the community across the globe!

Swag Giveaway

The Prizes

The prizes are split in between individual items and five grand prizes! The individual prizes are:

  • 137 SharePoint Shoelaces
  • 27 OneDrive Shoelaces
  • 175 SharePoint logo stickers
  • 247 Yammer Logo Stickers
  • 150 OneDrive Logo Stickers
  • 50+ “Mystery” Stickers (from other Microsoft products)

And here are some pictures of the Five Grand Prizes!

How the Giveaway Works

Embedded at the end of this blog post, you will find a Raffle embed which allows you to get multiple entries! Here’s how prizes will be distributed based on entries:

  • 3+ Entries = Pick one Shoelace or Sticker
  • 2 Entries = Pick between a SharePoint/Yammer/OneDrive sticker (Or you can also choose a mystery sticker)
  • 1 Entry = Receive a Mystery sticker

There is also another option in the raffle for those who have watched any of my 29 Pluralsight courses! Simply upload a proof that you have finished one of the courses and you will be entered to win one of the Grand Prizes!

The giveaway using the Raffle embed will be open starting today (September 17th) until September 25th, 2020 at midnight (ET Time). Everyone who entered and has at least one entry will receive an e-mail on September 28th with a link to a Microsoft Forms form in which you can select your preferences for the shoelaces / stickers, as well as your mailing address. You will have one week to fill the form after which everything will be mailed out in standard envelopes using the normal post service! It will all be shipped to you for free, so there are no costs involved!

If we have more entries than prizes available (and I mean we have over 800 prizes), priority will be given based on number of Entries. (So 4 > 3 > 2 >1). If there is a specific prize you want, make sure you get as many entries as possible to lock in your chances to get it!

After all of the goodies have been mailed, the Microsoft Forms form and all its data will be deleted from the tenant.

Enter the September Swag Giveaway

Make sure you get as many entries as possible before the September Swag Giveaway giveaway closes on September 25th!
