Use your promotional codes (coupons)

Google and our partners sometimes distribute promotional codes for AdWords advertising. These special offers can be used to redeem credit that gets applied to your AdWords account. This article explains how to redeem your offer and track its status. 

Before you begin

  • You will need to enter a payment method.
  • If you’d like to use monthly invoicing, be sure to set up that setting before entering your code. Otherwise, your offer will be invalidated and the amount lost when you switch to invoicing.

Where to enter your promotional code

  1. Sign in to your AdWords account.
  2. Click the gear icon and choose Billing & payments.
  3. Click Settings from the menu on the left.
  4. Scroll to the bottom of the page, then click Manage promotional codes.
  5. Click + Promotional code.
  6. Enter your promotional code.
  7. Click Save.

If you’re using the new AdWords experience, you won’t see a gear icon. Instead, click the 3-dot icon in the upper right corner of your account. Under the “Setup” header, click Billing & payments.

Check your progress

  1. Sign in to your AdWords account.
  2. Click the gear icon and choose Billing & payments.
  3. Click Settings from the menu on the left.
  4. Scroll to the bottom of the page, then click Manage promotional codes.
