I just got a fedex package, and inside was a nice gift from Yahoo.

It's some kind of travel blanket or something (I think).

What was even cooler was the holiday card that yodels "Yahoo!" when you open it.

Thanks Yahoo!

Wow. That sounds awesome.

I can't wait until I get mine. Nothing yet.

Hmm... I wonder if Yahoo will send out holiday gifts after the program is out of beta. That would be a heck of a lot of people to send gifts to.

Just got my gift from google too.

Google's wins for "cooler tech geek gift," but yahoo's handwritten message & card wins for "more personal"

I think this is going to be Yahoo's big strong point, and marketing angle, or it should be at least.

Great customer service. I don't know what will happen once it goes out of beta.

I hope I get something from Y! today . . . I really want a Y! hat though. :)

I think its a travel picnic blanket (at least that's what my wife called it). The kids loved the Yahoooo-ooo card!

A nice unexpected gift. :)

Hmm, I never thought of a picnic blanket, I just thought it was a travel blanket, but now the nylon on one side makes more sense.

Oh, and was anyone else scared out of their mind the first time they opened the card and it started screaming? Very cool though, Thanks Yahhhhoooooooooo!

Got mine too. The handwritten note was a very nice touch. Great job, Yahoo!

Nuttin' for me either.
I wonder what the earnings cut-off point was.
Sour grapes? You bet!
I feel like dog meat.
I won't soon forget this slight that YPN thinks that I am unworthy.
Personal confirmation that I "don't count".

I can't get a gift, probably due mostly to poor targeting.
Perhaps if YPN knew how to target, I could be recognized.
If the gift criteria were made public, many would see that they simply did not "make the cut". But to simply be ignored, and passed over, does NOT leave a good feeling. For everyone who gets a gift, there are thousands who just get piffed. What kind of PR is this?

Sally, how many figures do you earn per month?

Nothing for me, and my earnings are pretty high.

I feel I am definitely in the top half, revenue-wise.
Although we can't know for sure, how about a guess?

What top percentage of revenue earners got the gift?
Top 75%? (over $ 500 per month?)(guess)
Top 50%? (over $1000 per month?)(guess)
Top 25%? (over $2000 per month?)(guess)

We can't know for sure, but maybe we can get some idea.
What's your guess?

Or maybe, something like
3 figures per month - no gift
4 figures per month - got gift
