    I have an account that I have $500 in. It is a new account. And after I spend 35$ each day it won't let me spend anymore.

    It is for the account though, not just for one campaign. Is this normal? I know you can set the budgets for the campaigns, which I have set over $35, but once the cumulative campaign spend is within a $1 or 2 of $35 the account stops showing any ads.

    And when you check the keywords, it says not showing because budget has been met. Anyone had this happen before?

    So this is a common problem... that sucks. I wonder if it lifts after a couple days or weeks. Or maybe I should let an account age for a few weeks or months before using it then?

    account limits can be raised by contacting your account rep / customer service. Aside from that, all new accounts start with low limits for fraud etc...

    Thanks for the info Joe....Yeah i dont know whats going on with Adwords lately. I've had a campaign running constantly for 2 weeks now (35% ROI ;-) and I had to pause it for a day because I had cause flow issues.......but the following day i resumed the campaign and to my surprise....it said I was over my budget....but i'd not even spent any money that day.

    I talked to Google Support and they told me they will investigate and get back with me. Very weird behavior though.
