Apparently today. I got 54 points out of 100. There's different prizes this year too.

yeah, I got it too. and also have 54 points.

I'm wondering what the full list of swag looks like, because I don't really like any of my options

I think if you go to the main "member recognition page" they have pictures of all the potential prizes. The jacket and pullover seem cool, but apparently you needed more than 54 points to get those.

It actually says "earbud" and the picture has one, so is it just one bud or two? We've been debating this at my office...
