Well, it’s that time of year. It’s time for college basketball fans and non-fans alike to fill out a bracket to participate in a little friendly competition at the office. If we know anything about the NCAA tournament, it’s that the outcome is impossible to predict. Usually the winner of the pool ends up being someone who knows next to nothing about these teams… and that’s what makes the month of March so exciting!

To add to the madness, here at Merchology, we have two additional competitions for you to participate in. They are easy and fun, and you can win some MerchBucks to pick out some awesome new gear for spring and summer! We will call THAT a “W”.

Here’s the scoop on how you can participate and WIN (or at least have fun trying!):

  • “Merch” Gear Contest: By Friday 3/27, submit a photo to our Facebook page of 2+ people on your team wearing gear they got from Merchology. Most creative team photo wins $200 store credit to Merchology! Winner will be announced on our Facebook page on Monday, 3/30, so be sure to follow us if you don’t already.
  • Final Four-ONLY Pick 'Em Contest: Also by Friday 3/27, submit your picks for the Final Four ONLY. Submission with the most picks correct will win a $100 store credit to Merchology. The winner will be announced on Twitter on Monday, 3/30, so be sure to follow us there as well!

We won’t share with you our top-secret strategy for selecting the Final Four, but we WILL share with you our attempt at taking a “Merch Gear” photo ourselves. Here’s a few of our team members in Studio M this morning, showing their team spirit. We have a couple of hockey fans in our mix too, reminding us that winter is not OFFICIALLY over, and the playoffs have yet to begin. Hence, the hockey sticks.

You might think we make sporty look easy… but if you need a real chuckle, visit our Facebook page to see some of the outtakes. They say practice makes perfect!

So, that’s it… that’s #MerchMadness, folks! We can’t wait to see your submissions… may the odds be ever in your favor!
