Are adwords from ebay legitimate?

Hello,

 

I am new to Google Adwords, and I recently noticed that you can purchase vouchers on eBay for Google Adwords.  The vouchers claim that if you spend $25 you will get $100 free.  Are these vouchers legitimate or do they go against Google's policy?

Hey Patrick,

I would not recommend you purchase any of those coupons. We cannot validate if they are valid or not.
Google does give out certain promotional voucher codes to Google Partner agencies. If you have a Google rep, you could request them to provide you with a one. not sure if they would be able to help though.
Cheers,

Hi Patrick R,

I just want to add that vouchers can only be used for new accounts. The voucher must be in the same currency as your account. These vouchers are free from Google and through Google Partner agencies. I think I'd avoid the eBay offers.
