AWS Promotional Credits
User guide on how to redeem and monitor your AWS Promotional Credits
Redeem AWS Promotional Credit Code
For the credit to become effective, you will need to redeem the code.
The full list of AWS services covered by these promotional credits is available under ‘credits’ tab in your AWS account dashboard. Promotional credits may not be used for Reserved Instance fees or Mechanical Turk and subscription charges. Credits cannot be transferred to a different account once applied, and the duration cannot be extended. Once redeemed to the account, credits backdate to the beginning of the month. Credits cannot be applied to any past month’s charges.
Set up billing alerts to monitor usage
Set up billing alerts with a $1 threshold ASAP to help monitor the charges on your AWS bill. Please note that upon reaching your credit amount, your billing will automatically switch to the payment method on file and the account will be charged immediately upon going over the credit amount. We cannot provide refunds for overage charges. To avoid overspending, please also remind the user to turn off their instances when the job is done. We also recommend using EC2 Spot Instances whenever possible to save costs.
