Recently I have used my promo code given by github students pack ($50) but I changed my mind and I need to close the account. I want to use it in the future but I am wondering if will work next time when I apply it. I didnt spend any credits btw.

Hi @gurbanskimitko
I don't think you can do that, but you need to contact support - create a ticket in the control panel.

@gurbanskimitko

Generally coupon codes are one-time use and they expire the moment you use them (at least for your account), so you'd definitely need to submit a support ticket asking if that'd be possible.

That being said, last I recall, the credits would not expire and you would not be charged anything as long as your account does not have anything deployed, so you could leave your account open and just come back when you're ready to use it.

@hansen and @jtittle thank you for your replay and suggestion. Will open ticket for my case and will post the answer here if anyone else need that information. However the credit expires 12 months after apply date and that is the reason i need to cancel it because I don't really need it right now.
