[DigitalOcean] Extend Credit Expiry

Anyone know if you can extend the life of DO credit?
My 12 month expiry is up this month, but I still have $60 credit left. :(

    To be blunt, it depends primarily on the answer to this question:

    Do you actually want to use the service or are you just sad to lose a free thing?

    The point is that with promotions we want people to try us out and use our service. If I help someone get credit for another year because they're sad to lose a free thing, and they show no signs of actually wanting to be a customer, what actual benefit does it serve? I don't want to just repeat it every year for someone who really doesn't want to use the service.

    I think you need to have a DO link in your sig or some other identifier that you represent DO.

    If people area not familiar with LET then words like "we" and "us" are confusing.

  • @jarland thanks, what you said makes perfect sense, and you are right, I am more on the 'sad to lose a free thing' side.
    Currently I just use DO to spin up and play with a server for a few hours.
    I should be happy for the promo and just add $10 to my account, as I have only used <$5 in the last year.

    I can respect that and I like the honesty. I'll tell you what... If you add that $10 a gift will follow it (when I get home because we ran out of cat food).

    That's almost my total! But I actually pay each month and don't rely on free credit..

  • It's a shame this applies to referral credits also, but it is what it is i guess.
