    Luckily I caught it early. Around 120 dollars. My worry was that I set my daily budget to $20,000 :p Now that would have really stunk!

    Oh. Would be a month fee of $600,000.

    Next time that you do that again, tell us in time so we can invest in some Google stocks :D

    I prepay for Google ads exactly because I'm scared of this sort of thing happening.

    It's a bit more hassle but it avoids nasty surprises!

    Only that here in the UK at least it takes 7-10 days at least to transfer the money, and Google's automated balance low notification comes too late.
