Already threw out the box, so I don't know...

128MB USB key (takes up 2 spaces on their usb hub!), Wireless mouse, cable, 4 port usb hub, usb light, headset and a partridge in a pear tree.

Being with AdSense since Sept. 03, i have never received anything from them nor do i expect as i think they have lottery system for gift distribution ;-)

I have a feeling I wont be getting anything... It did sound good all the free gifts. Ah well may as well use this months adsence cash for a little holiday to take my mind of these dark days of no gifts! hehe

I just got my gift today (Tampa, FL USA) so there's hope for the rest of you. But the real gift is all the income for the past year. The USB hub should come in handy.

It may well be a lottery, but if you can't send a holiday card to a trading partner that has earned you thousands of dollars during the year, that is just plain scrooge. I am having a hard time thinking that is the case.

Still, who said this is their third holiday season with Adsense, and they have never even received a card? It hurt my eyes to read that.

Still waiting, wondering, watching...

Sweet - just got mine...on the third attempt by DHL to deliver it out here in the wilds of southern Ontario, Canada.

I got the 64 mb thumbdrive, mini usb optical mouse, 4 port usb hub, usb flashlight.

Heh.

I was just talking about the headset with someone. I was saying how it's pretty useless since you can't really use it for much. "It looks like a headset you'd use for a phone, except it's made for a computer. How dumb! The only thing I could see this being used for is.. hm... a computer chatting program?" "Like Google Talk?" "...ohhhh..."

Well, I was very happy to receive a call from the package room in my building to inform me that I had a box waiting from a Google (they pronounced it "Guggle" interestingly).

I went at lunch time to get it, and as other describe here, it had the usb hub, mouse, light etc...

I was dissapointed that last year I received nothing, even though I made much more then that now - but still - things balance out. I'd much rather this gift than the light radio!

I am reduced to whimpering now....

"no googlegift,, bwaaaahahahhaa :sob: :sniffle: :cry:"

"i am too worthy of a gift...ive been around since march 2004.... waaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhh"

"maybe yahoo will appreciate me and my impressions more... snif"

sigh

I mean, I understood it last year... I hadn't earned that much at all, had only been in the program 8 or 9 months or so.. but this year? Not even a card...

No idea...I got mine today and was very surprised I "qualified" for the Google Xmas present.

Two of the Xmas items I have just bought out of necessity which made me smile...

BTW...it's "i" before "e" except after "c":-)

I have a confession to make, not only did I receive one Google gift, but to my surprise, I received two in the mail today!

Either Google believes I've been twice as good as all other publishers this year ;-) or they made a mistake.

Now the question is, what to do?

You have been automatically disqualified :p

It looks like only AdSense publishers (but perhaps a mix of the both AdWords & AdSense). Not sure of how to qualify further than that - probably random for the set of those earning over $x.

a carpet for the dog

I got one of those Google carpets too - didn't know what it was. I thought it was an anti-static foot mat or something! Would have preferred the mouse pack.

Searching eBay for Google gift, I'm seeing one there now: starting bid $10, shipping $6.50.

I'd rather keep the gift then sell it on eBay for a lousy $10...
