Hi, i from Venezuela and i get $50 coupon from Github Student pack.

My problem is, in Venezuela we haven’t access to other concurrency, so i can’t verify my account if i haven’t dollars.

Why? So WHY IS THERE A PROMO CODE FOR STUDENTS IF CAN’t ENTeR DigitalOcean without credit card? So First of all, why is there a promocode for students that is useless?

I am facing the exact same problem here. This post has been more than 2 years old and there are other posts regarding this issue older than this one, and yet no support has been given for Students facing this problem. Then what is support even for? This is just ridiculous. You should enable a option for people to input their promo codes before they even have to input their payment info. This just makes student developers who signed up for the GitHub Student Developer Pack progrm not able to use the $50 credit for DO given to them. I hope this is fixed soon and I get to use the credits without having a credit card.

Is there any interest from you guys, that students use your offer? Kick that stupid credit card requirement please. Meanwhile I’ll just switch to aws, google, gosh… even Azure does not require a credit card. In which world do I have to pay for a service before even getting access to the actual offer?

Please provide any other option to verify account with GitHub Student Pack, even if we have this pack we are not able to use it because of credit card no. Answer is 2 years old, so is there any updates on this? Do we have any other option?

Just ask your parents for an expired credit card

Oh no, this issue isn’t done yet. So sad

Yes for Student Pack it is useless

Please provide another option
