AWS Free Tier enables you to gain free, hands-on experience with the AWS platform, products, and services. AWS Budgets further provides Free Tier usage alerts that notify you when are forecasted to exceed your Free Tier usage limits.

Starting today, you can also monitor your usage of Free Tier-eligible services using the new Free Tier widget on the AWS Billing Dashboard. The Free Tier widget shows your month-to-date and forecasted monthly usage for each service, enabling you to see how you are tracking towards your Free Tier usage limits (e.g., 2000 Amazon S3 – Put Requests per month). This widget gives you a comprehensive view of your Free Tier usage that you can reference at any time.

To learn more about managing your costs, you can visit the AWS Cost Management webpages. To get started using the Free Tier widget, go to the AWS Billing Dashboard or refer to the Tracking your AWS Free Tier Usage user guide.
