I signed up through a referral but I'm a student


I signed up to DigitalOcean through a referral link one of my friends sent me, but I’m a student an have access to the GitHub Developer Pack. I see no where on my Billing Page to put a Promo Code. If this is because I signed up with a referral link, then I’d rather use the GitHub Pack Promo Code than the referral credits.

How can I use my GitHub Developer Pack Code?

@Spread we only allow a single promotion code for every new customer, so that is why it is not available to update in the control panel. If you file a support ticket and provide a valid GitHub student pack promo code, they will be able to update your account to the new one.

However in summary, you get 100$ credit to use in 60 days. So there wouldn’t be any need to enter a promo code anywhere (IF you signed up via the referral link)

Just swim in the “Digital Ocean”, and the credit shall be applied automatically.

You have 100$ to spend in 60 days. Clock tick begins now!
