Is there any way to monitor AWS charges / bill from within Dynatrace?

As title, I am looking for a way to have a custom dashboard with AWS charges incurred month to date and cant find anything like it in Dynatrace UI.

There is no specific screen for external metrics but Dynatrace offers a convenient REST API that allows you to define a custom device that can show any custom metrics. In this case you could model the AWS console as a custom device and push the AWS billing timeseries from cloudwatch over to Dynatrace.

Here you can find information about the custom device and custom metrics API in Dynatrace:
