I can't find the previous thread about the now-expired Adwords coupons Google has been handing out since last Fall and also at Pubcon.

I started a personal account and applied it. I did not see the $300 in my account balance so I left a question that was answered by Adwords Australia along the lines that no such offer has been made to Australian customers.

Has anyone recently, i.e. after 31 March, applied them successfully outside the US?

shman, these coupons are most typically handed out by AdWords at trade shows and industry conferences, to interested potential advertisers - and in some cases to existing advertisers as well.

I am being grilled by the AU Adwords person as to where I got the voucher, do I have a copy of the email to Google about difficulties in activating it etc.

I was originally using my usual email address but it is known as an AdSense login. It kept rejecting the account creation process with the "Our engineers have been notified" error. OK, I wasn't trying daily, so I can't recall dates.

It doesn't look good for me here.

On a related note, has anyone used an AdSense login to open an Adwords account recently?

He gave me a $150 "goodwill credit" because I said that I had picked up two of these vouchers at two events and they don't allow more than one to be used.

Pardon me? I have him asked for a reconsideration. I gave the other one away. I used only one. Does not compute.

anallawalla,

I had a problem activating my coupon which I had reserved for a mon commercial client. When I tried to activate it (a few days before it expired) the system said it had already been used!?

Several emails later an Adwords rep asked me to fax the coupon and email all the details about where and when and then they fixed it manually. It's running perfectly now.

Is it only for new activations or can you get a credit with an exsisting account?

Well, maybe the person that found it really needed a new lease on life - and is now taking their first step towards financial independance as a successful affiliate advertiser. Or something.

Let's hope that your cloud may be someone else's silver lining.

Just to complete my story, all is sorted now. I got the full $300 credit.
