Hi!

I am running a campaign for a client under my account. the client has just provided me with a coupon/voucher form adwords that was sent to him. can i apply to coupon to his benefit even though the campaign is being run under my account? I am aksing because I have prevousdly applied a coupon to my account for my own campaigns & i believe i can be penalized if i use more than one coupon - just want to be safe

regards!

Hi MLMS007,

 

I would agree with your statement.  If you do not have a new, separate account for your client, chances are you will not be able to use the voucher as they are assigned to accounts, not campaigns. 

 

Most vouchers have terms and conditions attached and they will vary based on where you are located.  You can always contact support to find out exactly where your account stands and if the voucher you have can be applied to your account.

 

Hope this helps!

That's true, you won't be able to use more than 1 coupon per account. The system will not even allow you to enter it. You should open a new account just for your client and it's worth checking if they've had an AdWords account before as it's only 1 coupon per URL and if they just open a new account to use the coupon they will get suspended.

Hello MLMS007

To echo with Toms answer :

Quote: Can i apply to coupon to his benefit even though the campaign is being run under my account?

 

The answer is NO. A coupon is per account, If you want to redeem a coupon for your client, he will have to get a separate new account. Otherwise, you at risk of violating the coupons terms of service.
