GitHub Student Promo Won't Work

Hey! I’ve had a Digital Ocean account for a while, though I have never used it (never created a droplet).

I recently got my ‘GitHub Student Pack’ that had a promo code, but sadly it won’t work as the site says its for new members only, even though my account is only old by age.

Any way to resolve this? Thanks!

Don’t worry, I had the same problem when I got mine code. You need to Contact Support and they will add redeem that code for you :)

Ah, interesting. I also find it rather silly to limit that offer to new users only since you have to provide a certificate that you are a student first to even get that coupon.

I’ll do what you suggested @xMudrii, maybe the support will be accomodating and still grant it to me. So far they have been awesome in my experience!
