Old account without billing setup and Github Student Pack Credit.

Hi there, Hope you guys are doing great!

I signed up a couple of days ago with God knows what referral links! But I had not added any billing details because I was having an issue with my Card. However, I just got a coupon from Github Student Pack that would provide me with $50 worth of DigitalOcean Credit, would I be able to use that coupon with the same account I signed up earlier but without any billing details?

Please let me know the solution, looking forward to hearing from you soon! Best Regards, Omer Mustafa

I don’t believe that you would be able to use Digital Ocean services without a billing method.

This is just a security measure and it is standard for all hosting/could providers.
