I have AWS promotional credits, and I want to purchase a Reserved Instance.

Promotional credits can't be applied to subscription charges, which include the upfront costs associated with Reserved Instances.

However, if your credits include Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) as an applicable service, then the discounted hourly rate for all Reserved Instance purchasing options can be covered by your promotional credits.

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.
