    just a question about those who buy accounts with credit:
    if you've just signed up for adwords, can you advertise with just voucher codes? if so, how many codes can you use?
    do you need to give billing information before you can purchase words? or can you leave those fields blank and as i said, just use vouchers?

    My experience:
    - 1 Voucher code per account.
    - In order to create your first campaign you need to give all billing information before you can do anything (like use your voucher code).

    I see, however I see many people here and on fiverr selling 5-10 vouchers for usually $5

    what is the point in that, since you can only use 1 voucher?

    Can you elaborate please re what issues there are with the AdWords sellers on Fiverr? Some are India-based and I'm wondering if those coupons would work. I'm also assuming you mean those people were banned on BHW and not AdWords.

    can you advertise with just voucher codes? - YES - 1 free code =$100

    do you need to give billing information before you can purchase words? - NO - 1code = ads

    i just made 10 more accounts = $1000 ads are running with no credit cards attached or verified in any way shape or form. besides email verification

    CW...what do you mean by "the way your doing it" Is there some special way other then using a new email account? Do you mind sharing, if not can you PM me the details? What reliable source can I get good vouchers from?

    I did the exact same thing today and I'm from the US. All you need to do is create a brand new Google account, go to Adwords, and go through their Sign-up form. Fill in all of your details (name, address, phone number, etc. - I used all of my personal information, exact same info, on all of the accounts).

    On one of the billing pages, it will ask if you want to do automatic billing or manual billing, CHOOSE MANUAL! If you choose automatic right here, you have to pay later to change it. So choose Manual. Also, at the bottom, it will say "If you have a promotion code, click here." <- click that.

    Then enter your promotional credit and finish setting up your account. This will give you the $100 credit and it never once asks for you to enter your credit card info. Once the $100 is up, your ads will stop running and you'll be finished with that account. Later on, just do the exact same thing with a brand new account and a brand new promotional code and it'll run all over again.

    Hope that helped!

    thanks for the detailed information UC. I have to ask though... why are you creating a new account? I just logged into my existing account were I used a promo code from Godaddy $100 that finished; now under the billing tab for Google Adwords I see a more options tab (apply promotional code) so it appears that I can use the same account to apply the 2nd voucher but i don't know because I don't have a current voucher to test nor do I know a valid source for vouchers. Would you happen to know? Also, are you logging through proxy's because isn't against Google's policy to have multiple accounts?

    EDIT: forget the proxy question. I noticed you're using the same info on all accounts so it irrelevant too disguise I guess in that sense.

    Why? Because we're having a decent conversation? Go troll another thread.

    As for the questions asked.. You'll see the promo code box even after you apply acode. But you'll have to get your hands on a promo code that will work for an old account. Most promo codes say they have to be used on a new account so the restriction isn't tied to your account but to the promo code itself.

    You can get promo codes from companies when you sign up for their services or you can get them from people here at BHW or you can buy them online. You can get codes everywhere.

    Ok can I jump in here and ask a related question ?

    I have an adwords account for my business. I have spent £300($500) a month on it for the last four years, while I am Happy to keep on giving google a few quid is there anyway I could use vouchers to cut my costs in half. Can you only use one per account or could I drop in a few and get away with it . Or is the only way to do it , open up lots of new accounts and run the same campaign through them ?

    Read the thread dude but need 100% clarification. I don't need to get an account for a legit biz into trouble just to save a few quid. Is the only way to do it by opening multiple accounts ?

    So, UC I tried and got a message that said something along the line you have already used a voucher for this account. So, maybe I can do it with my business account, but you said using the same personal is not an issue, correct? Also it appears when you sign up for new account you can get $100 google dom com/ads/offers/adwordsoffer.html :cool:

    whew...

    1 account = 1 voucher

    1 account = not more than 1 voucher

    1 voucher = free advertising

    free advertising = money

    else if;

    1 voucher + no action = 0 conversion

    I remember to anyone that Google Adwords accept 1 Domain for Account, you can't have 2 accounts with same domain.

    How do you handle that guys?
