Free Tier and Billing Alerts

Amazon GameLift includes a free tier for one year with a c4.large instance. It is possible for the free tier to expire mid-month; therefore, you may want to set up and configure a billing alert to notify you of billing events, such as when you have reached the free tier threshold. For more information, see Creating a Billing Alarm.

In addition to receiving billing alerts, you can view your current estimated bill for Amazon GameLift on the Billing and Cost Management console at This will allow you to review your resource consumption and determine if you would like to continue using these resources beyond the free tier allowance and incur charges, or if you would like to scale down your fleet and avoid incurring charges.

To avoid incurring charges in excess of the free tier, you may want to scale down your fleet when not in use.
