Setting up AWS billing alerts
In this article, we are going to learn Setting up AWS billing alerts. AWS automatically provides AWS free tier usage alerts using AWS budget so that your AWS free usage can be tracked. These AWS Free Tier Usage Alerts allow AWS when you exceed 85 percent of your usage for the month. For additional AWS Free Tier visibility, you can use AWS Budget to track 100 percent of your AWS Free Tier usage for specific services. AWS Budget has the added ability to select usage targets and thresholds that you can customize.
Important: If you launch more AWS resources than the AWS Free Tier covers in a short period of time, you can exceed the AWS Free Tier limits before AWS can proactively notify you about exceeding the AWS Free Tier usage limits. If that happens, AWS still notifies you that your incurred usage exceeded 85 percent of the AWS Free Tier limit.

You can opt in to or out of the AWS Free Tier usage alerts through the Billing & Cost Management Dashboard.
