It's all a cruel joke!

Quizlet is free and will remain free indefinitely. Sorry to those who took me seriously :)

On a serious note, Quizlet's only recurrent expense is the web hosting account that Quizlet.com runs on. I can keep supporting it on my own for a long long time. Thanks for your concern.

But I am talking with a few people about advertising deals, so we'll see about that.

    Hehehe I do love internet April Fools. But yeah, a donation button might earn you some extra money on top of the advertising.

  2. Heiswhoisnameless

    Donation button grants extra quizlet beta features

  3. ivann

    its cool

  4. alicia

    haha very funny. you actually fooled me.

  5. susan

    I think your quizlet is wonderful. I overheard some of my students talking about how they like it and they plan to really use quizlet to study for their science classes, etc.

    I am sure you will end up with a fabulous scholarship because of your quizlet work, if you don't already have one. Where will you go to college?

  6. Magee

    Yeah, sadly, you fooled me. I was upset...This is my favorite way to study now, and I didn't want to have to pay...Wow, you got me bad! :p

  7. Liv

    You had me seriously convinced.
    ahaha

  8. morganrocks7

    I was seriously going to go ask my mom if I could stay on Quizlet and ask for some money. You got me bad. It was a really convincing note. You got me bad!

  9. Angela

    Whew! Well, I was pretty suspicious that you posted the thing on April 1st (what a coincidence!), but personally, I was prepared to go and ask for some money, seriously. Scratch that. Actually, I think my mom would never let me pay a subscription fee, but Quizlet is one of my favorite study tools; I definitely didn't want to lose it. Same here, I still support the donation box idea.

    I knew it was a fake

  11. Amelia Bedilia

    All I can say is... THANK GOD!!! :P

  12. Serynn

    Aaah I got fooled! Not even when people thought it was a joke did I consider it so. So much for my severe pessimism *sweatdrop*

  13. Andrew

    @ susan - I've been eyeing MIT...

  16. Ioannus de Verani

    Agh. You really scared me

  17. katieluvsquizlet

    u really got me fooled! r u thinking of any other colleges??

  18. Monroe6

    man I really thought you were serious! I just started using Quizlet and I really like it and like most of the other people I was ready to ask my parents for money! Also like most of the other people I support the donation box idea 100%

  19. JTF

    You really should set up a donation box, too. I'd be willing to donate a few dollars to the cause, and other people probably feel the same way. This would get you even more money to help support the website.

  20. Shane

    Let me echo the other studious students above - MAKE A DONATION BOX. I vow right now to give 5 dollars for each A I receive this semester. That's a potential for 25 bucks dude!

  21. The Geekster

    i hate u 4 that. u really had me fooled even though i am a geek and im really smart!!!!
    REALLY SMART!!!!!!

  22. Kirt

    Nice joke!!! (sorta)

  23. martig2

    You totally fooled me. Good one!

  24. crissy

    lol you actually fooled my two friends carolyn and sydney. they came to my teacher and said "quizzlet is not gonna be like free anymore" and my teacher's jaw dropped. then they went back to their computers and realised that it was a joke!lol

  25. THE MEISTER

    I WAS NOT HERE FOR THE JOKE, BUT IT LOOKS LIKE ANDREW FOOLED MORE THAN ENOUGH PEOPLE. NICE JOB!

    ALSO, I AM SURE THAT ANDREW IS A NICE AND POLITE PERSON AND DOES NOT WANT TO EARN MONEY FROM DECEIT. THE IDEA OF A DONATION BOX IS GOOD, BUT NOT RIGHT AFTER A JOKE THAT COULD INCREASE ITS PROFITS.

    THE MEISTER

  26. Ford MF

    Dude! Don't mess with me like that. I nearly had a heart attack.

  27. 4everme

  35. miagetty

  36. Sue

  37. sweet man

  38. Melissa

    You seriously should set up a donation box... there are probably a lot of people who would want to help out this website.

  39. CocoLocoChanel

    oooooooo he was jokin'? ooo

  40. Mrs. Wright

    I do not believe it! My teacher told me to use this and i thought I would have to stop because of the money. I am really glad it was just a trick!

  41. trent

    stop killing the page sweet man

  42. Beastly96Draft

    dude u can consider sellin this website like youtube owner did, i bet facebook once gets 1m users, its gonna be sold for billions as well.

  43. pixie_pie

    Whoever used all those question marks in their reply...wow. I don't think Quizlet should be sold.

  44. gradster1

    I love Quizlet even though I have only been here for a day, and would hate to see it spoiled by ads. Put up a donation box and let people give you the money you need in thanks for a great service! I think that Quizlet should be payed for by the people that use it and I would definitely make a donation if I could.

    /gradster(1)/

  45. sam

    heyy - r u the real guy who set up quizlet.... + nice joke !

  46. sam

    i would give a donation of 150$ - i vow it

    i will
    if u set p a box
