Google Sends Valentine's Day Card to AdSense Publishers

Valentines Day is around the corner and some Google AdSense publishers are reporting at WebmasterWorld that they received a card from Google, wishing them a happy Valentine's Day. The card also includes a $100 promo code to use AdWords.

The front of the card reads:

Others will fill your heart this Valentine's Day

When you open the card, it reads:

We want to overload your servers.

Because nothing says "I love you" like free traffic to your web site...

I found a picture of the front and inside of the card on Flickr from devanjedi. Here they are:

The best comment from the WebmasterWorld thread is, "who said romance was dead."

Does anyone outside the US ever get these?

Best Part: The address says: "AdSense Publisher or Current Resident" It's so personal.

I got the card as well and I am in Canada so other people outside of the US get these as well. It's not the most personal card since it doesn't say your name but the thought is there lol. Google doesn't have to do these types of offers but they do which is nice.

I did not receive a card, but they did send me a £75 AdWords voucher.

I got the card too. I think it was one of the nicest things Google could do for their adsense publishers, I just started a adsense a few months ago.

Doesn't anyone else have the complaint that this "offer" (free money!) is only valid if you do not already have an Adwords account? It does not seem to allow you to use an already existing Adwords account.

So this card has been on my desk for a few days and I finally got around to typing in the code. Turns out that unless I start a new account, it's worthless! Thanks Google! "Nothing says 'I Love You' like a free gift with ropes attached."
