Likewise, Azure and AWS give also give you some free instances for 12 months (I know, it's not forever but it's something). From Azure you get a B1S instance, from a AWS a t2.micro or a t3.micro.

Yeah that's true. It's for 90 days $300 not forever. This post is confusing the people by using the word forever.

Nope this is not a trial period. Google Cloud free tier is indeed forever (or at least until they shut it down).

Actually AWS charges you like hell without any notice if you consume your free tier.

You can usually negotiate with them. They charged me for not terminating the instances. But when I told them that I didn't know I needed to terminate unused instances, I got a full refund.

AWS also charged me without notice about my db excess and didn't know we can negotiate with them. Thanks for this.
