Use your promotional codes (coupons)

Google and our partners sometimes distribute promotional codes for Google Ads. These special offers can be used to redeem credit that gets applied to your Google Ads 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.
If you’re using the new Google Ads experience, you won’t see a gear icon in your account. Instead, click the tool icon in the upper right corner. You'll find Billing & payments under the “Setup” header.

 

Where to enter your promotional code

  1. Sign in to your Google Ads 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. Enter your promotional code.
  6. Click Save.

  1. Sign in to your Google Ads account.
  2. Click the gear icon and choose Billing & payments.
  3. Click Settings from the menu on the left.
