    I've been on bhw for quite awhile and never really posted, but I feel that a contribution has been long overdue, well anyways here's my BIG contribution

    I assume that most of you here have set up an adwords account at least once, do any of you guys remember if any of your accounts allowed for manual payments? The manual payment option allows for an adwords voucher to be used BEFORE a credit card is required as opposed to automatic payments where a credit card is required before you can take any futher action. That means you can make an unlimited number of accounts without the need for any credit cards. The payment option you get depends on what zip code you enter, which then goes on to decide whether or not you have to enter a verified credit card to your account.

    Why is this important? If you don't need a credit card attached to your adwords account then there's no need for all of the extra effort and money spent trying to obtain them, just so you can save a few bucks when promoting with adwords. Also you can just throw away these accounts after you finish using the preloaded voucher funds.

    In all my time dealing with adwords the only zip code that has offered the manual payment option for me is 22181 - which is the area code for vienna, virginia, east coast, usa. The name, and street name are irrelevant and you can just enter any random name that pops up in your head

    make sure you do this for a brand new account while signing up.

    also if you find any other zip codes or areas that offer manual payment please post it here, because if too many people start signing up for one area, google may catch on and not allow it for that particular area anymore

    Let me know if it works for you, and any questions you may have.

    hmm...i wonder if google changed their system? Last time I did a lot of heavy promoting with adwords was back in may and most of the experimental area code accounts that I made allowed only automatic payments

    You're saying that every usa zip code allows for manual payment?
    If so then try and make a several accounts using different ip's loading each one with a free $25-$50 adwords voucher that you find and copy from the "how to make a website for dummies" books from your local bookstore. Afterwards run your campaigns as soon as possible, They should work. There'll definitely be a few that get banned but most of em should work.

    If it doesn't work...then I guess I waited too long to share....:(

    I wish it would be that simple, I run the ads immediately but it's under review, after they review it, account get banned. Others as well :)

    Damn...just eight months ago I copied 50 or so $75 adwords vouchers featured in business magazines, bought a pack of 100 emails on fiverr, and created dozens of working adwords accounts all loaded with $75 each.

    I ran several campaigns on these accounts, throwing away each account as the $75 was used up, and managed to generate over 10k in sales. For me it was literally $5 to $10k

    Its a shame this doesn't work anymore

    All codes are working now. That's not the problem. Google just knows too much from a PC and if that unique configuration is recognized one more time all the accounts get a nice ban. Maybe a nice programer will find the way to hide all the tracks from Google and will sell this as a service. Of course he will make xx,xxx per month if that works, or maybe Google will hire him as their CEO :).
