How do I claim my free $600 credit on Google Ads?

Updated: Mar 27, 2023

Google offers a $600 promotional credit to new advertisers in NZ.

To qualify for this credit, you need to spend $600 within 60 days and meet the following criteria as detailed on Googles website:

  1. The offer is only available while it is active and may be changed or withdrawn at any time.
  2. Offer available only to advertisers which are new to Google Ads, with a billing address in New Zealand. One promotional offer per advertiser.
  3. Promotional credits are automatically applied by Google to accounts that qualify.
  4. The promotional offer will only be applied to your account if a payment profile and a valid payment method is added during the initial signup process.
  5. To earn the Google Ads credit, your advertising campaigns must accrue costs of at least $600 (excluding any taxes or applicable fees) within 60 days. Making a payment of $600 is not sufficient.
  6. Once step 5 is completed, provided all eligibility checks are met, the credit will typically be applied within 35 days to the Billing Summary of your Google Ads account.
  7. The credit expires 60 days after it is applied to your account.
  8. Credit applies to future advertising costs only. Credit cannot be applied to costs accrued before the promotional offer was applied to your Google Ads account.
  9. You won’t receive a notification once credit in your Google Ads account is used up and any additional advertising costs will be charged to your form of payment. If you don’t want to continue advertising, you can pause or delete your campaigns at any time.
  10. Your account must be successfully billed by Google Ads and remain in good standing in order to remain eligible to use the credit.
  11. Google Ads reserves the right to remove the promotional offer from your account if a payment fails, an offer was mistakenly applied, you breach these terms or your account otherwise falls out of good standing. In such cases, if the promotional credit has already been granted, Google Ads reserves the right to nullify that credit.
