Using promo code when account has no balance left

I got a promo code that allows me a credit of INR 2000 if I spend INR 500. I understand from another post in the forum that the spend part is related to other people clicking on my ads. However, I have no credit left in my account. Now, to run my ad, do I have to pay, to make sure I end up spending 500? In other words, should my account have a balance of INR 500 for me to use the promo code?

Hi,

 

Once you spend Rs. 500, your credit amount of Rs. 2000 will be credited into your account. Yes, its better to have credit in your a/c while redeeming coupon code. You first required to spend Rs. 500 then only you'll see promo code's amount.

 

I hope it helps you.

Thanks!

Hello,

 

For my country for example , there is a time limit of 30 days between when you enter the code and when you have to spend the additional amount . If you spend the additional amount after 30 days, you don't get the bonus.

 

Here are some walkthrough articles :

Yes, you do need to spend the amount of 500 to get the promotional credit of 2000.

There are some other facts considered  by Googler Simran in the below article where she explains more details about how this offer works:
