GitHub education Promo cannot be applied

Posted August 3, 2015 2.4k views

Hi guys,

I just recently received my GitHub education pack, only to see that I can’t apply my Promo here at DigitalOcean. It seems a little unfair, as this community, as well as the web is filled with answers like ’…open support ticked and it will be fixed.’, meanwhile I can not use my code.

Contacting support is of no help, unless you wish to receive back messages copied from the bot-like messages they already pre-wrote that they’re excited, psyched, and whatsoever to be part of this partnership but obviously they’re not.

I’m sorry that your experience was not as helpful as it could have been. The GitHub education pack credit is only available to accounts that have not previously redeemed promotional credit from a different promotion.

  • Yes I realize that. I just feel disappointed because it feels like being the exception. There have been so many similar cases previously which were handled in another way, i.e. they could apply the promo.
