#TestDaddy Contest Rules

Participating is simple: tell us how Sauce Labs helps you save time, or “shave” time, off your busy day via a tweet to @saucelabs, using the hash tag #TestDaddy. Keep your  response to 140 characters or less – no long, shaggy dog stories!

The contest runs now through Wednesday, June 15th. On Friday, June 17th, one winner will be announced via the @saucelabs Twitter handle. Winners will be selected based on the creativity of their responses, and will win a deluxe Dollar Shave Club Father’s Day shave kit and a subscription for three months!


So tell us how you’ve shaved time off your software development and testing process by using Sauce, and get in the running for a deluxe Dollar Shave Club Father’s Day shave kit and 3-month subscription. Don’t forget to use the required hash tag, #TestDaddy to be included, and hey, if you want to follow @saucelabs, Bob’s your uncle!

The contest is open to dads, moms, little and big shavers, and anyone using Sauce Labs of course!

The contest is easy. Rules below:

  • Then, retweet the embedded tweet below OR any more updates that we post about this contest on Twitter. Bonus points for including our hashtag, #TestAllTheThings, and for using our handle, @saucelabs.
  • A lucky person who’s retweeted one of our contest messages will win a care package.
  • Our 5,000th follower will also win a care package.
  • The more often you retweet us or mention the contest, the better! Hey, we never said we weren’t biased.
  • Both retweets and modified tweets will be counted.
  • Contest will close on May 15 or after we get our 5,000th follower; whichever comes first.
