What's the policy?

Google and our partners sometimes distribute promotional codes for Google Ads. These promotional codes can be used to redeem credit that gets applied to your Google Ads account. The terms and conditions for each promotion can vary by country or by promotion, so please be sure to check all the details in the promotional material. For your convenience, we've included a list of general terms and conditions for our promotional codes in the section below.
