    I have an adwords account that is about 5 years old. I've never used a voucher on it.
    1) Are there any vouchers that will work on it?
    2) My CC on file is expired, could I create a new account, and use a voucher on it, using my new CC? Or will they trace the name or IP?
    3) Can I use my gf's CC on a new account and use a voucher or do they trace IP?

    I'd like the free credits, but I don't want to deal with the headaches of having my account possibly closed, so I want to know how safe it would be if I did any of hte above.

    Jon_xx_x,

    I'm sure a voucher would work on it however I doubt they are going to send you one if the account is so old. Generally they send those to people who haven't yet used an AdWords account.

    You could create a new account and use a voucher if you had one. I'm not sure how it would work out if Google hadn't sent the voucher to you. For instance if you set up a new account, used all the same name and CC info and used someone elses voucher.

    I'm sure you could set up two different accounts on the same machine and not have an issue. There are probably lots of instances of people using the same machine for two different accounts. For example if someone was managing multiple accounts for clients.

    I think as long as you aren't trying to screw Google you will be fine. Keep in mind that they are pretty good at catching people who game the system.

    Hope that helps,

    Shawn

    Agreed, there is no theoretical issue with running multiple accounts from the same machine. Google actually encourage it with the MCC option.

    It's ok to use a new CC for your account. Google will not penalise you for reviving an Adwords account.
