Last update July 25th, 2016. A long time ago I wrote a post about how anyone could get Facebook advertising coupon codes to start their promotions campaigns with a head start from Facebook themselves, by getting a $50 Facebook ad coupon.
Afterwards, Facebook has tightened its belt and partnered only with certain online services providers, who gave their new users a $50 coupon. I wrote about these services in this blog post here. However, most of these partnerships have expired in late 2015, and those that haven’t, will require you to spend some money on the service first.
The other options I’ve encountered were not directed specifically to new advertisers, but rather to everyone, including old and existing advertisers. I’ll outline them below;
The first was a satisfaction survey FB ran for existing advertisers. I participated in the survey and got a $75 ad coupon towards future advertising.
Second is an ad that Facebook ran on right side bar offering me to spend $10 on ads and get additional $10 as a bonus. Unfortunately, I didn’t capture the ad image to show you, but here’s a proof of the added credit I received. So it’s worthwhile looking at ads every once in a while. I’ll add that this was offered to when I had a long pause in my FB ad campaigns, so this is obviously a hook for previously active advertisers, and I wouldn’t expect this to be offered to you if you currently have an active campaign and also if you never ran one before.
Third is a series of events FB started to run, named Boost Your Business. These events are designed to help small business owners get the max out their Facebook advertising or general activity. There are two types of events. The event I took part in was a short, 2 hours gathering in West LA. These short events are called 2 hour pop up events and a handful of participants received $500 worth of Facebook advertising coupons. The other sort of gatherings are the half-day events. These occur less often and carry a symbolic participation price. However, all participants leave with a $50 FB ad credit.
Fourth, though least likely to be relevant for many, is the promotion Facebook is offering mobile start-ups and app developers. If you’re one of them, head to the FbStart program, where you will need to apply, and if accepted, you will be offered with up to $80,000 in various tools and services, including $500 in free advertising credits. As per the report here, more than $100 million in benefits were distributed during the first year.
An Alternative option, relevant only to business owners with actual business websites and/or products/services of their own (rather than affiliates or small websites) is Perfect Audience. Read our Perfect Audience review here, and see how you can receive $120 of free advertising on Facebook, Twitter, and additional networks, using this audience retargeting platform.
Adespresso is another service, a Facebook ads manager, that occasionally offers promotions. In any case, I recommend checking their Facebook ads gallery, a vast collection of Facebook ads examples, for free. Get inspired by how others, including your competitors, advertise on Facebook.
And what if you don’t fit into any of the promotions above? I can suggest a few options.
First and foremost, you’re invited to subscribe to our newsletter. We update whenever there are new advertising coupons given away on many ad networks, not only Facebook but also Bing, Google, Yahoo and other leading advertising locations.
Second, up until last year, the best place to find Facebook coupons was Fiverr (Fiverr is the most successful outsourcing marketplace startup, reviewed by TechCrunch, The New York Times and many others, recently received another round of $60M in funding). You can usually count on them to find anything you can imagine.
Previously, you could find below a list of coupon sellers on fiverr, however, I want to recommend some other super sellers that will help you with your FB ad campaigns. Look at some of these, and go from there to wherever your search might take you. Other than that you could probably use more fans or likes and etc. Pro Tip; New Fiverr accounts can enter coupon code AR5BA during the checkout process, to get 20% off their first purchase.

- While searching for Facebook ad coupons you can get up to $200 of Bing Adcenter coupons –
- And how about Adwords coupons? –
I will try to keep this list updated. However, if the above doesn’t suit your current needs, have a look at the online marketing gigs or the business promotion gigs or use the search to check for whatever you are currently in need of.
If you find someone who is selling Facebook ad coupons on fiverr and not listed above, please do share it with us.
So, as opposed to what some might say, Facebook coupons are still out there. The system may not be as loose as it was with giving out the advertising coupons to anyone, anytime, but there are plenty of events and occasions worldwide where the coupons are issued and handed out.
