Amazon EventBridge cost saving tips Optimize your Amazon EventBridge costs with these tips


Review Rules & Targets

Make sure to frequently check your EventBridge rules and targets. Deactivate or delete outdated ones to prevent incurring unnecessary charges.


Filter Events at Source

You should consider filtering events at the root level to only publish absolutely essential event data. Publishing large payloads may result in higher costs.


Utilize Retry Policies

EventBridge includes built-in retry policies which automatically resend events to targets during failures. This helps prevent cost increases from resending duplicate events.

About Alex I am your AWS cost saving guru, ready to slash your AWS costs!

As a CTO at various start-ups and scale-ups, I've seen too often how AWS costs can sneak up on you. It used to be something we'd only think about when there was a problem—either it wasn't working like we needed it to, or the expenses were through the roof. I took my know-how in AWS and made it my goal to change that. Now, I use a simple rule to make a big impact: focus on the few changes that make the biggest difference in cutting costs.

I look at your AWS bills with a fine-tooth comb and find where you can save money without losing performance. It's about being smart with your resources and making sure AWS works for you, not against you. By doing this, I help your teams do more with less, and make sure we keep your cloud spending in check.

Amazon EventBridge pricing

Amazon EventBridge's cost depends on events published to your bus, and events used for schema discovery and replay. No extra fees for rules or event delivery. AWS services' state change events are free. Payload size matters, each 64 KB chunk is billed as an event. Extra charges for cross-Region invocations. Billing for custom events at the global endpoint is separate. E.g., if SaaS app publishes 5 million events/month, charges are $5/month.
