Hi James K,

You must have a new account in order to use the promo code. Plus, that promo code must be in the same currency as your account.

Google frequently uses direct mail to prospect for new customers. and they send promo codes in that promotion. They don't do very well at screening people how already have an account. So, you may have received a promo code in the mail, from Google, that you are not able to use.

I get mailings these a few times a year and we've been using AdWords for about 8 years.

Best of Luck!
