Can I redeem Github Student Coupon of $50 if I have already received the $100 credit for free during signup?

Hello. I’m a student and was planning to deploy my project on DigitalOcean. When I tried to sign up, I saw that I was given $100 credit, valid for 60 days, even tho I didn’t follow any referral link.

I see the following message on signup screen: "Try DigitalOcean with a $100 credit

You will receive a $100 credit (good for 60 days) when you create a new account on DigitalOcean"

So I’d like to know if I can redeem the coupon provided by github if I have already received $100 at time of sign up.

Hello, @thedigizones

What you can do is to use the DigitalOcean credit for the period it’s valid and once this is over you can redeem your Github Student Coupon as well.

The other option will be to setup a separate account for the Github Student Coupon and use it with that account. In order to activate your package you need to et your personal unique code and also to add a valid payment method to your DigitalOcean’s account (credit/debit card) or add some funds using PayPal.

Hope this helps!
