Using AWS Free Tier with AWS Marketplace

To help new AWS customers get started in the cloud, AWS introduced a free usage tier. The free tier can be used for anything you want to run in the cloud: launch new applications, test existing applications in the cloud, or simply gain hands-on experience with AWS. When the free usage period expires (or if the application use exceeds the free usage tier limits), you simply pay the standard, pay-as-you-go service rates. For more information, see AWS Free Tier.

AWS Free Tier customers are eligible to use free AWS Marketplace software for up to 750 hours of EC2 usage each month for one year. To get started, see AWS Marketplace.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are paid products on AWS Marketplace also free tier eligible?

Yes, because they can also be run on a micro instance. However for AWS Marketplace paid AMIs, software charges will be applied even if infrastructure is not charged within the AWS Free Tier.

How do I determine which products are free tier eligible?

Any AWS Marketplace AMI that can run on a micro instance is free tier eligible.  Look for the “Free-tier eligible” badge next to the product.
