I have some AWS promotional credit, and I would like to purchase a Reserved Instance.

Promotional credits cannot be applied to any subscription charges, which includes the upfront costs associated with Partial Upfront and All Upfront Reserved Instances.

However, the discounted hourly rate for all Reserved Instance purchasing options might be covered by your promotional credits, if your credits include Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) as an applicable service. For a Reserved Instance option that is covered by EC2-applicable credits, consider a No Upfront Reserved Instance. To view your account's active credits, as well as the services the credits can apply to, see the Credits pane of the Billing and Cost Management console.

For more information about Reserved Instance options and pricing, see Amazon EC2 Pricing.
