Well I hit the $1,000,000 mark for AdWords and then sent me a nifty mini-fridge:

Google Adwords "Cooler Thinking"..

bathe me in the warm glow of your envy ..

I have heard a bunch of people mention getting the fridge at a million. Is this for the year or overall? Because lifetime I have spent well over a million and still no fridge.

Just wondering

That's pretty lame hehe. I get $200-500 Amazon gift certificates and electronics gifts monthly from several affiliate networks for generating a fraction of that in commissions.

Hopefully, the biggest win of all will be the ROI from the million dollars! I'd think that most advertiser view AdWords as an investment which brings a worthwhile return - rather than as just an expense.

In any case, I for one hope you enjoy the fridge, bw3ttt. ;)

Mine was much cheaper than $1 mil. You get one at 1 million clicks, not dollars.

What's the criteria for a gift?

Spend? Clicks? and over what time period - a year, month, day, etc?

From the fridges that I have, what I've seen is:

MCCs - need 3 million clicks.
Individual Accounts - 1 million clicks.

I've not heard dollars play a role yet, but of course, it's always possible.

As an FYI, there are at least two different types of fridges. The first is the rectangle cooler like one. The other is egg shaped.

I believe it is a million clicks and not a million $. At least that is what my certificate says.

I got my refrig just before they decided my site sucks and blocked my ads via high bids.

Their algo/googlers don't know an informational site from an affiliate site... oh well.

Drat, I only have a 1/4 million clicks this year.

Guess I am going to have to spend way more money.

Maybe if I triple all my bids I can do it!

Yes, that is what I'll do! <"mouse finger twitches, crazed look in eyes">

It's a metaphor:

The Fridge a cold box that is always functioning 24/7.

You really can't tell what is going on or what is inside unless you open the door.

But do you dare?

or

Every time you take a beer out you'll think of where it came from.

Every time you take a beer out you'll think of where it came from.

...and who drove you to drink it.

I came across my tilt-a-clock from Google the other day. We just moved, and it was in a box.

It didn't work properly. I thought about selling it on ebay, but I thought that nobody would buy a defective tilt-a-clock.

It was cool, though - if I had 100 of them, I'd build a shower screen!

Anybody else get a tilt-a-clock?

So what do we get for 2 million clicks on a personal account? Can I get a full sized Sub-Zero?

Hey, I'm nudging a mill. Do you reckon they send them to Australia? It'll look great chock full of beer out by the BBQ. Now for the important question, how many stubbies does it take?

So are you trying to say it not the quality of your creative, just the size of your freezer?

Per eWhisper:


MCCs - need 3 million clicks.
Individual Accounts - 1 million clicks.

Then I'm way overdue for a fridge.

What are the parameters for the mini fridge. Is it total number of clicks over a year or since you opened the account? Has anyone outside of US had one? And I would also like to know how many stubbies it holds...
