    I have registered my business on Google adwords and they have send me the promotion code and free adwords credit of Rs 750. When i create my ad on Google adwords and try to run my ad using this free credit then it shows me an error message "Your ads aren't running because your account balance is exhausted.- Please make a payment.Fix it" When i cattachThumb171591 lick on fix it option then it ask me to add the credit card option. I don't understand why they are asking me to add credit card details because i want to run my ads with my free credit of Rs 750. Please help me to solve this issue. I a also attaching the screenshot.

    Hey Ashish!

    I've used the promo code for countless clients and every single one had the same common element; you need to spend a certain amount on AdWords before they award the credit. My guess is your situation is no different.

    Let me know if this helped!

    I too was fascinated with collecting these balloons few years back ! Lol
    Later realised, the catch that you need to add money to get your ads up. It is like marketing guy telling you that pls buy $10 Coupon and you will get $5 Credited into your Bank account Free of Charge.

    Right. But, if I was already going to buy the $10 Coupon I'd love to get the free $5 credit on top of that! :D

    I do normally tell incoming clients about whatever the current offer is but I've never seen it make or break a sale. Either they were not going to use paid search at all, or they were going to and now because of it they got a bonus. I suppose the coupon is more for people just starting out that want to manage their first campaign so they get some wiggle room to make errors that will be somewhat absorbed
