    I think like many people you don't know what Adwords is or confusing Adwords and Adsense. They are different sides of the same coin.

    Adwords: an advertising model allowing you to display your ads. It is a PPC (pay-per-click) service and as the name says, you pay only when people click your ads. Many other search engines and social sites have a PPC service too such as Bing's Adcenter.

    You can show your ads on Google's search engine where you bid on words people search for. The way to make money is that you want people to click your ads so they land on your page where you try to sell them something. That's the only way to make money using PPC: advertise and sell them something.

    You can also show your ads on sites that display those ads. That's the other side of the coin and Google calls it Adsense. This is where a website owner get a piece of code that handles the showing of ads. When a visitor clicks an ad from your site, Google gives you a portion of the revenue generated by that click. That's how you make money using Adsense, by becoming a publisher (show Adwords on your site).

    If you understand how things work and do the math, you quickly realize there's no way you can make a profit by buying traffic with the pure hope visitors will click the ads on your site. The math just doesn't add up.

    you can use it to advertisepromote a website/product you have if not you can sell it to someone and let them figure out what to do with it.

    but some adwords coupons have restrictions on use, i am afraid you cant really use it for your own purpose.

    also to activate a coupon with a new account they will ask you to add 20$ with your CC onto the account, atleast thats what happened to me.

    What about after you use up the voucher? You won't make any more money once you stop advertising. The model and the logic is flawed. Others have tried and failed.

    There's no way to make a campaign stop after a certain budget is used up. The best you could do is set a daily budget of whatever amount you wish, let the day go by and stop the campaign manually just before midnight. The problem is to create a campaign capable of spending $100 in one day. Also, the budget is averaged over 30 days so it may actually go over by a few dollars, up to 20% if I recall correctly.

    The idea of the coupons is to get you to try out the system at a lesser risk. Google hopes you learn something from this, improve and continue advertising with them. They are not meant to use up and never advertise ever again.

    Make a blog reviewing a product
    Then put the affiliate link
    Push traffic with Adwords

    If revenue from the affiliate is greater than money spent on Adwords, the you are making money automatically.

    You can delete cc by going to billings tap and ticking off automatic charge when funds run out
