Did I miss out the free $100 credit reward?

I created an account today and already created my $10 droplet. I was searching around and found out that new accounts get a $100 credit if they used someone’s referral code? Am I still able to get this offer with a 1 day old account or did I completely miss out?

Please you create your account by clicking a URL with ref code.If you didn’t create your account by the page you touch the ref URL,you wouldn’t get $100 credit.And,the trial balance is just available for 2 months.If you can, generate a other account by the steps above.

Have a nice day.


  • This is a terrible answer. I’m in the same boat and from my search results “we” are not alone. We DID use that method and yet we are here, with this problem. I think a MUCH better answer would be to enter a promo code, which we can do in our account after it’s already set up.

Hi there @usernameunlocked ,

In our public community, we aim to answer open questions about anything SysAdmin, DigitalOcean and beyond. However, we make every attempt to keep personal information safe and so don’t ever access personal account information here. This means we can’t provide help with any account or billing-related issues.
