Redeeming your Google Ads credit

If you're a new Google Ads subscriber, you can get a free $100 Google Ads credit when you spend $25 or more. You can use this credit to create online ads that appear in search results and other places in the Google Network.

Tip: Google Ads used to be called Google AdWords.


To qualify for the Google Ads credit:

  • You must apply the credit within 14 days of creating your Google Ads account.
  • Your site must be on the Website Business, Commerce Basic, or Commerce Advanced plan. You can be on the annual or monthly billing cycle. To upgrade, visit Changing your billing plan.
  • You must use US or Canadian dollars to pay for your Google Ads account. If you're outside the United States or Canada, see this information.
  • You must spend $25 in Google Ads after signing up to receive the $100 credit.
  • You can't combine this promotional credit with other Google Ads credits, and only one credit can be used per Google Ads account.
Note: All prices are in USD.
Tip: To use Google Ads without a credit outside the US and Canada, visit Google AdWords Express
