    Adwords just updated and coupons business seems over for now. Just to let you know, for you to don't waste your time. (you can thank me)

    Now you get this message :

    "Your account is currently under review. We periodically review accounts for security purposes and to verify billing information, which takes about 2-3 business days. Your ads won't show during this time period, but they'll automatically be eligible to show again as soon as the review is complete. What can I do?"

    No matter the kind of account you create (legit or coupon) and for now, all the ones I created with coupons have been banned. The coupons accounts created before september 23rd still work as before, it only concerns NEW accounts.

    Waiting for some feedback from account sellers that are living the same thing as me.

    Take care guys.

    How do you know if they are banned because of the coupons used than the information used on the accounts, the way of verification, IP,Cookies, and all the rest that matters?

    Trust me, I know my job, it makes more than one year I do coupons account creation. I made several tests on the top to confirm that.

    Let's hope it's temporary from Google but it seems all the Account creation business is shaking right now.

    If they ban accounts just because they use coupons, they are nuts. Its them who is releasing coupons, and they cant ban accounts for using something that they have given us.

    Seeing your thread I spoke with a client of mine who bought some bulk load of vouchers yesterday from me. He is still so cool and is making money out of the campaigns. So as the guy above said, I must say it might be just you who is facing the trouble.

    They don't ban you because you use coupons of course not ! But they probably find a way to track if you have already used coupons before or something. I don't know how to explain but there is something new for sure and I talked with several account resellers who had the same problem as me.

    I'm making a bunch of test right now, I'll keep you updated but things are changing for sure.

    Yes, this is because creating account with voucher is just a tiny part of the game. You will need to know how to run the ads without suspension. Otherwise, you will need to get adwords management service, so that other people are running adwords campaign for you.

    That's really weird. I had the same problem today and some friends doing the same job too. Maybe they added a new variable in their tracking method and I'll have to find it. I'll keep you updated.

    For people who have the same problem, PM me with your Skype and I'll contact you for us to brainstorm together.

    Hope other people can chime in on whether or not they are able to create accounts.

    They guy i buy vouchers off said this method doesnt work anymore. But that doesnt make sense to me as it seems that google is pushing vouchers even harder now with the introduction of google engage.

    There must be something that is triggering the ban.

    Also has anyone had any success if using image ads wothout getting banned?

    I just created an account few days ago with a coupon. My third adwords account using coupon made on this computer. Haven't cleared cookies or anything. I am even advertising the same website each time. The ad is running fine as we speak.

    OP needs to take a deep breath.

    OP obviously has something shady going on and needs to relax. We work with google directly and their reps set us up with $100 coupons for each new account we bring them. Plus I get these things in the mail all the time.

    Paranoia is bad... mmmkay?

    If you create adwords account using coupon, without clearing cookies, your account will be suspended soon, usually within 1 week after they find out.

    Let's hope by that time, you have already used up all the balance within the account :)

    You think that Google believes only 1 person in the world uses each computer? If you work in a large company, you could have 50 people using 1 computer on any given day.

    "Usually within 1 week after they find out." What does that mean? You mean 1 week after I create the account? No sorry that wont happen here. Or when do you think they will find out? You guys are much too paranoid.

    If you are creating 10-15 accounts from 1 computer I can believe Google will get suspicious and you should hide your tracks. But 3-4 accounts wont be a problem if you aren't getting the accounts banned for any other reasons.
