Promo code (from github) for new customers

  • Posted October 8, 2014

Hi; I received a promo code (Simple cloud hosting, built for developers

DETAILS: $100 in platform credits) from github education package (, but I cannott put it into my DigitalOcean account somehow. Webpage can’t remember my promo code and there is no “save” button.


If you forgot your promo code, go to, then click button “Get your pack”. Scroll down to Digital Ocean and you will see you promo code. Hope it will help you.

Hi folks! I have the same problem, I received the email from github with the confirmation in the education program but until now… no more info or voucher to add to my personal account! … In fact I use DigitalOcean in my job as well but for my Msc I want to use it !!! but … until no I didn’t receive more information

Any ideas!?

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!

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;
