Is there any Stack Exchange site where this question of mine would be topical? - AWS free tier account with credit card - is it possible to make sure nothing is charged?

Super User closed it as off-topic.

My question is about if it's possible on AWS free tier to avoid charges if you cross the free tier limits - will AWS charge your credit card or is there a way to set it so that your account gets locked rather than your credit being charged?

DevOps Stack Exchange has some questions about billing in AWS. Most of them aren't too well received, but it might be worth a try. Their Help Center isn't really helpful in determining whether this question is on-topic or not, but to me (not a regular there) it looks like a practical problem you could be facing as a DevOps engineer. Please do include some research about what you already found (but didn't help); this increases the chance you'll get a useful answer.
