Daily budget of $1 a TOTAL COST of $147 in three days???

I'm having some problem with my budgeting and my total cost.

I made a Youtube video and used Adwords to increase my views. I only allowed $1 per day budget. After three days I checked on my Adwords account and saw that my Total Cost is now $147. What the heck happened? Am I going to pay for the $147 Total cost if I only allotted $1 per day budget?

I paused the campaign for now because I don't know what to do.


I would really appreciate some help.

Hi there,


Are you sure there weren't any changes to the budget after it was initially set to $1/day? Could you check the change history to confirm this? More info about change history here.
