How does the $100 promotion work?

Sorry if this sounds dumb. If I decide to sign up for DigitalOcean using the $100 promotion with a $10 VPS plan, would 10 months be free? Would it only discount a certain amount of months?

The promotional 100$ Credit needs to use within 60 days of your registration. after 60 days your credit will be lifted and you will be billed.

So this mean you have upto 60 days to use 100$ credit.

Hello, @itsmebb

New customers can redeem a promo code to apply credits to their account. As per @toufikanahar reply you can use the credit within the 60 days of your registration.

The following limits apply to promo codes:

  • One promo code per account. If you redeemed a promo code in the past, you cannot redeem another. Your promo code history is visible in the Billing history section.

  • Non-transferable. You cannot transfer promo code credits to other accounts, including team accounts.

  • Use within 1 year. Unlike PayPal pre-payments, which do not expire, credits from promo codes expire one year after you redeem them.

Note: In order to create Droplets or other resources, you must have a valid payment method on your account even when using a promo code.
