Remember that you do need to be a student with a valid github account that has participated in this promotion, as well.

Everything worked for me when I signed up under my Student account. Note that I believe it uses AJAX and automatically submits when you enter your code. If it is giving you that error, everything went by fine. You should have received an email with credits awarded. I did need a card to activate my account;

You should have valid github account and you should have your university/college card for that offer. In order to apply the coupon successfully you should search your query in Google. I just find few sites;


Read them carefully and follow the instruction given over there. Hope it will help you.

There are also some other website which could provide coupon codes, such as https://www.couponbirds.com/


After entering you payment method, click on the drop-down near your profile picture and go to Settings. Click on Billing, and scroll down, you should see and input box that says promo code, and enter it and click apply. After that you should get a credit of the amount you have.

Thank you!

Remember to check spam folders etc for emails sent with codes. I found a few in mine.
