Question

GitHub Student Pack

Hello, excuse me I just saw the Digital Ocean benefit provided by the GitHub Student Developer pack (free $50)

Upon registration it’s prompting me to enter either my credit card info or my Paypal account.

Will I be charged something by doing so? I just want to make use of my free $50

Hello, @jouo

You need to enter a valid credit/debit card or make a deposit via PayPal in order to use the GitHub Student Pack. Keep in mind that this is needed in order to verify account and once done you will not be charged.

The promo code field should be visible in the Billing section of your account, as shown in the link provided bellow:

Let me know how it goes.
