Hello all,

This is just an update on an older topic in case someone stumbles upon it:

Usually, in order to get your Free Trial/Github Studen Pack credit, you need to add a valid payment method, that’s all. It should appear in your Control Panel in the Billing Section. If you’ve added a valid payment method (Paypal, a payment card, etc.) you should get the credit. Having said that, if you’ve not added the Payment method the best possible way forward would be to contact DigitalOcean’s Support.

They should be able to help you out with your account issue. You should be able to reach them here:

If you are unsure if you have received the free credits, you’ll need to go to your Control Panel --> Billing.

Hope that helps! - KFSys.

You get free credit if you are referred by someone else via referral link. You, the referred one get 10$ and the referral gets 20$ after YOU spent the first 20$ on DigitalOcean.
