Hello, all

If you navigate to your billing page you should be able to see a link which says Apply Promo Code.

In order to activate your package you need to get your personal unique code and also to add a valid payment method to your DigitalOcean’s account (credit/debit card) or add some funds using PayPal.

Please note that you have taken advantage of a different promo code at some prior point each account is only allowed to use one promo code during it’s lifetime.

Hope that this helps! Regards, Alex

@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.


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.
