Hi,

 

Welcome to AdWords Community.

 

Let me tell you that it frustrate us all to the same extent it has you.

 

Google does NOT allow this and it has policies against the misuse of promotional codes. But, it's really difficult for a huge brand like Google to track all such incidents. 

 

Thanks for bringing it here, hope it is noticed by Google.

Hi All,

Thanks for reporting this issue to our team. I can assure you we are aware of this issue and we are doing our best to stop this type of behavior.

Selling AdWords promotional credits is not acceptable and prohibited based on our promotional codes Terms and Conditions (http://www.google.com/adwords/coupons/terms.html). Violators of this policy are subject to AdWords account suspension and Google Partners suspension as well (if applicable).

If you have any further legal concerns, we ask that you contact legal@google.com.
