Donating Gmail invites

Update: Man, now they’re down to about 179,000 invites. That’s a huge decrease in just a couple days! I wonder if people are hoarding Gmail accounts – that’s just wrong.

If you don’t know what else to do with your Gmail invites, head over to the Gmail invite spooler. At the time of this writing, they have over 1.5 million invites. You can then send your friends to that website to get a Gmail invite, if they’d like one. I’m going to save 5 invites and donate the other 45 nobody seems to want.

  1. I did it one by one. Copied my email address, click and paste into the field, tab, enter, repeat. I need to hear a laugh, and I hope I gave you one at least! 😀


  2. It’s not worth the effort if I don’t know the person that will enjoy it (I would do it for 50 friends)…

    … Plus I’m stingy so I doubt I would give them away anyways to strangers…


  3. Yeah, but what’s the likely hood that you’ll have 50 friends who all want Gmail? I asked all of my friends first, gave invites to all those who wanted them, and then sent the rest to the Gmail Spooler. And, guess what? Google gave me 50 more… oh joy…
