    Hi, I signed with amazon web service free tier for 12 months like a month ago, now i received an email from them saying that they will charge my credit card $35.28 for using their vps. I'm only using 5instance right now and its not even close to the 12month period. Anyone having this problem?

    Instead of posting here I'd be contacting Amazon support where you could actually receive help with your service/payment. I'm assuming there was fine print that you did not read when signing up which is probably the case, none the less, get in touch with them and I'm sure they'll help you sort it out.

    I?m eligible for the free usage tier, but I received a charge. Why?
    AWS?s free usage tier is available to new AWS accounts created on or after October 21, 2010. The free tier applies to certain participating AWS services up to a specific maximum amount of usage each month?applicable services and usage amounts are defined above and at aws.amazon.com/free. When an account goes over a free tier of usage, the standard AWS service rates will be billed to your credit card.

    I doubt he went over the free rates though, 25 gigs storage (not data transfer) a month and 200 million requests a month. That's a lot of storage space and a huge traffic figure.

    But as mentioned Amazon is the only one that can answer this for you, hit them up.

    I think it allows to run one instant in free tier. You have created more vps. That's why they charged.

    I've heard people creating 10+ instance using the free tier. So how is that possible?

    Probably with some trick, not just striaght making 10 instances. Last I heard you can have 1 of each instance, so like 1 windows and 1 linux (and then they have other stuff) but even 2 windows ones and you're over what the free tier allowed.
