Hello @sandydarkblueseaweed,

The credit will only apply to the Managed Database product as stated.

Your balance can be found by clicking on the box in the upper right of the page in the control panel and clicking “Billing”.

There’s a “Remaining account credits” section that appears at the very top of the billing page. Above the “Estimated costs for this billing period” section.

Hi @sandydarkblueseaweed,

The Credit you’ve received is for the Managed Database product. The product. DigitalOcean’s Managed Databases are a fully managed, high performance database cluster service. Using managed databases is a powerful alternative to installing, configuring, maintaining, and securing databases by hand. More about that here:

https://docs.digitalocean.com/products/databases/

Basically, you’ll still need to pay for the usage of your Droplet but can use the Managed Databases product for free until this credit is valid.
