We have been considering all of the risks and investigating the steps required to ensure we implement this feature with high positive impact and low to no negative impact.
After this investigation we have decided we will enable Pay-As-You-Go customers the option to configure a spending limit on a Pay-As-You-Go subscription, with appropriate safeguards and measures to prevent both service abuse and production service failure.
We have not yet finished determining the details of what this feature will look like, nor do we have a timeline for release, but we have heard your voices and have added this feature to our backlog.
Thanks for your continued feedback,

Well, found the alerts menu (at least alerts if not hard limits) but for Pay-as-you-go it's not enabled to set an alert... well Microsoft doesn't care for the smaller customers :( , and it's ok, the only thing we can do is use another cloud, luckily there are plenty: AWS, GCE, Softlayer, Rackspace, and what not....Anonymous commented
Hi, does it exist now? (2017 =) ) I didn't find any billing alarm or limit options in menu...
