Just as the title says. On YouTube I went to promote my video and I set the max campaign budget to $20 and the daily budget was $1.42, how did it get to $546!?!?

Hello,

 

I believe you are referring to Adwords Video Campaign here.

 

I am not sure what you mean by campaign budget and the daily budget here? Did you mean to say that you set the daily budget to $20 and your daily spend was $1.42?

 

Did you check the Billing Tab of your account for campaign specific details as where did the Adwords deducted your money?

I wish I could add pictures. When you are in video manager on your YouTube channel, you can click an arrow on a video then promote it and then you set a budget. There is a daily budget or campaign budget. I picked campaign budget and set it as $20. In the AdWords tab, it says the daily budget is $1.42. In the campaign statistics, the cost (at the bottom beside avg. cpv and website clicks) says the total cost is $546.94 in just 3 days.
In the billing tab, it isn't on there yet but I'm scared that it will be.

I think the total cost in Adwords is referring to the cost including all the campaigns in addition to your video campaigns. That means if you are running other Adwords campaigns as well (like search campaigns, display campaigns), you are seeing the total cost pertaining to everything you are advertising. That's my understanding.
