I'm just curious here....if you received a gift or multiple gifts (go ahead...rub it in), how much have you spent with Goog AW this year?

less than $10,000
$10,001 - $50,000
$50,001 - $100,000
$100,000 or more

No gift here and I have managed have spend in 6 figures here...never even a call from a G rep. Bah humbug!

Note to GAW rep....feel free to sticky me and ask me my shirt size, favorite color and anything else that is necessary to get me the right gifts :)

Kevin, my gift didn't come until today, so don't be sure you don't have one coming.

Got a sticky from Google; they asked me the size of my garden so they can send me the right pool;-)

I have been spending in the low to mid 6 figures for several years. This year was higher than ever. Always got a present in the past. But not this year. :(

I spent about US$101,000 so far this year, and received a great little carry case that includes a wireless USB mouse, USB flexible light, 4-port USB expander, microphone, and a few more doohickies.

Each item is stamped with the Google logo (what else?). btw...I gave it all to my boss.

Slightly less than 10K - and not even a canned email. I have to admit that I am disappointed.

BTB, there is a dirt cheap ($1.20!) license plate frame on google store with free shipping, nice way to show the world you make a living on google!.

I spend mid-to-high five figures per month over six clients, but I've never gotten so much as a Christmas card (pardon me, I mean Holiday card) and I assume if they're sending anything out, it's probably to the clients and not to me (which is kinda too bad, since I'm the one who brought them in, I'm the one who does all the work and budget recommendations, and I have them all in my client center account - but THEY cut the checks)

Mine arrived today. The travel kit even includes some of the stuff on my public wish list [webmasterworld.com].

And to answer Kevin's initial question, I manage well over 7 figures.

Hmm, maybe next year I should set my sights higher. I'd be okay with a Prius with the Google logo on it. ;)

Cline, I'm very glad to hear that the wheels were turning smoothly this year, and that things were delivered to the correct address! ;)

Uh oh. Would that logo be on the doors, or on the roof, or...?

Sign me up for one of those Priuses. Someone backed into my brand new car today and caved it all in.

Given that I live, breath, sleep, and eat Adwords at least as much as anybody at Google, the whole car can be one great big logo, with wheels the color of each of the four Google balls.
