Can't increase my ads groups's bids

Hello!

 

I have chosen a manual CPC strategy for my campaign and Default max. CPC for my ad groups. Originally I selected $2.00 per ad group, but now I would like to increase the bids. AdWords doesn't allow me though. What's the reason?

 

Thank you 

Petya

Hi @Jacob D

 

If you are sure that you want to change the bid to the amount you are entering, hit the 'save' button again. It will work. 

 

It is done to help advertisers avoid increasing bids to a higher amount accidently.

Have you hit the save button?

if still not working, logout > clear cookies and cache and try again.

I did all of those things, it just doesn't allow me to increase my bids...

Any other ideas?
