I'm joining or creating an organization, and my AWS account has active credits on it. How do my credits apply to the consolidated bill?

By default, all AWS credits under an account are applied to the organization's consolidated bill, beginning the first full billing cycle after an account joins the organization.

To change this behavior, turn credit sharing off for your organization.

Note the following:

  • When credit sharing is enabled for linked accounts, credits for AWS Support are applied only to the master account. To use AWS Support credits, credit sharing must be turned off.
  • When an account with credits is linked to a master account in the middle of a billing cycle, any credits will apply to the month-to-date bill for the member account. During the next billing cycle, the credits will apply to the master account's consolidated bill.
  • When a member account with credits leaves one consolidated billing family and joins a different one, the credits on the member account will apply to the bill of the former master account until the end of the billing cycle.
