AWS Free Tier Terms

Last Updated: August 14, 2018

The AWS Free Tier program consists of offers (“Offers”) for use of AWS Services under the AWS Service Terms and the terms of the AWS Customer Agreement or other agreement with us governing your use of AWS Services (the "Agreement"). There are two kinds of Offers: (1) Offers that apply for a 12 month introductory period (“12 Month Free Tier”); and (2) other Offers including trials and Offers without a set duration limit (generally called “Other Offers”). Both kinds of Offers are further described on the AWS Free Tier page.

The 12 Month Free Tier is only available to new AWS customers, and is available for 12 months following your AWS sign-up date. The Other Offers are available to both existing and new AWS customers, and may be limited in duration (such as for trials) or in available free usage (such as the amount of free storage for a database Offer). You will not be eligible for any Offers if you or your entity create(s) more than one account to receive additional benefits under the Offers. An Organization (under AWS Organizations) can only benefit from Offers from one account in the Organization, and to calculate the Organization’s use of AWS Services under any Offers, we will aggregate the usage across all accounts in the Organization. You will be charged standard rates for use of AWS Services if we determine that you are not eligible for an Offer.

New benefits added to the 12 Month Free Tier will be available to you for the remainder of your one year term but will not extend it. If your one year term has already expired, then you will not be entitled to any such new benefits.

If you have not used the AWS resources provided under an Offer during the previous 3 months, we may reclaim those AWS resources after giving you 30 days’ notice. Even if your AWS resources are reclaimed, you may continue to participate in Offers using new AWS resources.

Unused usage amounts remaining at the end of the month under any Offers do not roll over to subsequent months.

When calculating your use of AWS Services under any Offers, we will aggregate your use across all AWS regions.

We may terminate any Offer on the AWS Free Tier page at any time.

You may not use AWS Services under any Offers to mine for cryptocurrency. If you use AWS Services under an Offer to mine for cryptocurrency, we may charge you standard rates for your use of the AWS Services, and we may suspend your right to access or use any portion or all of the Service Offerings.
