Does DigitalOcean have a gift card or other promo code product?

Posted December 20, 2016 4.3k views

So, this is going to sound like an odd question, but I have a nerdy gift to give for Christmas, and one thought was a VPS hosting credit/gift card of some kind bundled with some other appropriately geeky items.

Does DigitalOcean offer anything like that, or alternatively, does anyone know of options with other, lesser hosting providers? ;)

As far as I know there are no prepaid/credit cards for DigitalOcean.

However, there are promo codes. You type it in billing settings and you get some credit (usually about $10).
There exists one problem with promo codes - you are required to add credit card or if you go with PayPal you need to pay in advance minimum $5.

You can get promo code ($10) for subscribing to DigitalOcean Newsletter and give it to friend.

If you want something more specific, or you want to get around problem with first payment, you can contact DO or even their sponsorship team.
Contact DigitalOcean, or via email -
