Use your promotional codes

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, make sure that you 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 Google Ads account.
  2. Click the tools icon , and under 'Billing', select Promotions.
  3. Click the blue plus button .
  4. Enter your promotional code.
  5. Click Save.

Please note that manager account users can’t enter a promotional code from the manager level through the Promotions page. Manager accounts must visit the billing page of the account they’d like to apply a promotion to and follow steps above. 

Check your progress

To see how close you are to earning your credit, visit the Promotions page in your account. It's updated every few hours. You'll be able to check your progress and the status of any credit quickly, and see your completed or expired promotions. Here's how to get there:

  2. Click the tools icon , and under “Billing”, select Promotions.
  3. On the 'Promotions' page, you'll see all promotional codes added to your Google Ads account and the related amounts and statuses, including the following:
    • 'Active': Reward associated with coupon has been granted.
    • 'Redeemed: currently earning': Coupon was successfully redeemed, but the spend requirement (i.e. 'Spend $25, get
    • $50') hasn't been met yet.
    • 'Processing': Spend requirement (i.e. 'Spend $25, get $50') has been met and our system is processing the granted
    • reward amount.
    • 'Expired': Coupon expired after redemption and before spend requirement was met
