Other useful tips/resources for Google Ads promo codes

  • Most offers require you to meet certain criteria before the credit will show up in your account, and they’re typically for new advertisers with new accounts. So for example, if you have a $150 promo code, you will need to spend $150 in advertising before that promotion as applied to your account. Google’s promo codes match your spend, so you need to spend $150 to get $150.
  • Google does have a page to request a promo code for Google Ads, but you can only use it once per account. See https://ads.google.com/intl/en_us/lp/coupons/
