    Hi,

    I got sent a £75 adwords code when I brought a few domains through 123-reg, need to be used before 31st Jan and I doubt I will have my site(s) up by then. I know someone gave one of these away a few weeks ago but i'm not in a position to be able to give stuff away so im asking £35 for it, im guessing you will need to create a new google account to use it. Payment to be made via paypal and sold on a first come first serve basis.

    Can send code via pm or email but will also send letter that 123-reg sent to me via post to ensure all is above-board.

    Many thanks.

    Thadeas

    Yes ive been a member of this forum for years but not an active member and only recently started to reg domains again, also as stated im not in a position to give stuff away and to be honest why should I?

    £75 for £35 is a good deal and if no-one wants it then I will try to use it, all I was doing is to see if someone wanted it and could use it now but hey if no-one is interested then thats fine.

    If you can afford to give stuff away then more power to you but at this moment in time I can not.

    You got it for free yes? So giving it away will cost you nothing.

    You can buy a domain for just over a couple of quid a year but doesn't stop you selling it for hundreds or even thousands if the right buyer comes along.

    Seems like a bad idea to sell this voucher code so it is now NOT FOR SALE.

    Many Thanks

    ok thanks newpbc I will take a look at digitalpoint.

    I don't know why people assume they should be given away for nothing just because I got it for nothing, if I found £75 on the floor am I also expected to give that away since I got it for nothing? Also if someone is going to use it to promote their business and in the process make themselves some money then shouldn't I also be able to make something from it.

    I'm not exactly a great businessman but I do know business is not about giving stuff away for free.

    Actually, doing something for nothing can be one of the best pieces of business you can ever undertake... especially if those people know your posistion of being hard up, but were still willing to give.

    Word of mouth and a good reputation is a great money spinner.

    But you own the voucher and in my opinion, you can (and should) do what you want with it.

    I guess people's reaction is down to how easy these are to come by. I can get a £50 of £75 adwords voucher by spending around £5-£10 with different hosts - or spend £6 on a PC mag (a few have adword £50 vouchers in there).

    It would be like someone in 1999 trying to sell an AOL disk that they just got 'free' on the cover of a mag, or through the door, or when buying a fridge, or buying milk (do you guys remember the number of the damn things you used to amass!?)

    If you'd received a £75 Amazon voucher for free and were trying to sell on for £35 don't think anyone would batter an eyelid - and you'd have takers.

    The fact these are easy to come by, and many forum members give them away for nowt (here and on other forums) it's probably no wonder the reaction.

    If needs must I don't blame you, but perhaps not the right place to 'sell' on here. Do these sell on eBay? or if not try the digital forums that someone has suggested.

    Another one to try would be ukbusinessforums.co.uk - I don't know if they give them away there but just another targeted audience to try and resell to.

    It's also that the people who repeatedly set up new accounts just to promote some awful site that doesn't make money anyway up everyone else's cpc

    Google need to really secure these vouchers. And only letting you display ads in search and not on the network where someone on another continent gets paid for a click.

    In fact there are so many dodges and dodgy people associated they should be looked at. Google let it go as its their own sort of price fixing but were they can wash their hands of it.

    Then they have the nerve to report new advertising customers in their financials. Joke in my opinion.

    I love google in the main. But their voucher for Adwords scheme is
    Awful. And the trial period people use them for doesn't really set you up for the time when you have to run it for real.

    It's amazing how companies like apple and google sell to us while sticking two fingers up at us and we don't seem to care.

    Little rant over :)

    Ok so wasn't the brightest idea to try and sell it on here and I wasn't aware that vouchers were so easily avaliable, but I honestly thought I was doing someone a favour whilst earning myself a few quid to invest in some new domains, I now see the error of my ways.

    I'll probably try to use it now, even if my site isn't ready by the end of jan the voucher can still be used afterwards but with a £45 reduction in face value.

    They're incredibly easy to get. I get them sent to my inbox at least once a month :D

    Watch the expiry mind! You should be able to setup a single campaign with 1 adgroup and ad and just pause it until your site is ready to go.

    I may be wrong as it's been quite a while since I used one of these but it USED to be the case that so long as you set up the account with the voucher before the first deadline (end Jan) you would get the whole £75 credit with no time limit on the spend. If set up after end jan would be the £45. Worth checking out if it means you get an extra £30 by doing it now.

    Hi,

    The voucher loses £45 off its value so will only be worth £30. I think your right in the fact that if I set up the account before the end of Jan and add the code the whole £75 will be credited to the account which is what I will do. I think they do give you a time limit on the use of it though, it has to be used within a 30 day period and anything left over is lost after that time.

    I added £100 voucher on 17 February 2010 and used just under half of it and my account balance today shows £50.18 in credit.

    I guess it must depend on the type of voucher deal, I got a free £30 code when I registered a domain through one.com and when I added it to my adwords account it said I had 30 days in which to use the balance or else it wouldn't carry over to the next month.
