Github student promo not added after signup with paypal

Posted December 29, 2017 1.8k views

I tried to add my student promo code while signing up for the service. I added my code on the credit card billing page and confirmed it. I then continued to the Paypal page and added 5$ to my account completing the sign-up process. When I checked my credit I saw that I had not received the promo. When I tried to add the promo on the settings page, I alerted me that “my account is not eligible for this promo.

I was wondering how I can still get my promo as one of the mods on the forum stated that the promo would still be added even if I used Paypal
