Promotions: If there is an active promo/coupon applied to the account, it will be displayed here along with the remaining balance and any expiration date. If there are no active promotions, this section is hidden.
Accrued Charges: The charges that have accrued since your last invoice. This updates frequently to include the hourly charges (up to the monthly cap) for all paid services on the account, as well as any other charges. In the screenshot above, the account has accrued $8.51 of charges since the last invoice. See the

A promo code adds a positive credit to an account, allowing you to pay for services using that credit. You’re able to add a promo code when signing up for an account. If you already signed up but haven’t entered a promo code, you may be able to do so from the Cloud Manager. To add a promo code to an existing account, certain conditions must be met:
The account must be less than 90 days old.
There must not be a negative balance on the account.
No other promo codes can already be applied to the account.
The user that’s logged in must have unrestricted permissions.
If those conditions are met, you can add a promo code by following these instructions:
Navigate to the Billing Info page in the
Cloud Manager (see
Accessing Billing Information).
Under the Account Balance section, click the Add a promo code link.
In the Add promo code dialog box that is displayed, enter the promo code and click the Apply Promo Code button. You should now see the promotional credit amount reflected in your account balance.
