    dont know if this will always work, and i did it by mistake, but i did end up getting $100 in free adwords ads
    this is what i did:

    i set my daily limit to $10
    i set my max CPC to $7.50 (i meant to set it to $0.75)

    the next day, i logged into adwords and shat my pants when i saw that the amount i had "spent" on ads for the previous day was $110

    i thought "oh crap"

    i read through some stuff in the terms & conditions and saw that they are allowed to "over charge" you by 20%

    I contacted them and got a pretty speedy reply (surprisingly)
    They said they had "over served" my ads, and i would only be charged my daily limit + 20%, so $12

    So i scored almost $100 worth of ads!!!
    Yay, finally i farked google over!
    Like i said, don't know if this will work every time, but somebody should give it a bash and let us all know :)

    Is their mistake - they don't do mistakes like that always, or else they won't be the Big G.
