AdWords Vouchers & their 2nd Secret Expiry Date

Writing about web page

For the third time today, I have picked up a client’s new Adwords account and tried to add one of the many Google Adwords new account Vouchers that are floating around. For the third time I came across the error “Sorry, your account is too old to be eligible to redeem this coupon.”
Adwords account is too old error

The error message is a link. Does this lead to an explanation of how old is too old? No, I takes you down to the Redeem Code box. As if any change you could make there can change Google’s arbitrary, unpublished, second expiry date for their vouchers.

The most common response to the squeeze approach of Google Adwords sign-up wizard; lets start with your first Ad!, is to go away and get expert help or to find a book. By the time you get back you will not get any help from the Adwords Vouchers.
