申请 GitHub Student Developer Pack, 已经迟了如何去撕

2015 年 05 月 26 日

半年多前 GitHub 出了一个看上去超级好的学生优惠包, 那时候没抓紧时间赶紧去弄来, 现在申请似乎变麻烦了: 天朝的 edu 邮箱似乎不能自动通过验证, 我十来天前上传学生卡照片提交的申请到现在还没收到反馈 (阿擦我去加拿大的 W-1 签证都下来了…). 看网上说要去撕(bi-), 于是乎:
入口: https:\education.github.com\contact

我发送的内容 (估计有语法错误我就是懒得查, 你来咬我啊!)

I am a undergraduate student in Tsinghua University, Beijing, PRC. I am trying to apply for student developer pack, but found that my school email address cannot be identified as a valid school email address. So I have to upload a photo of my student ID card. Until now the status of my application is still “Pending” (I applied on May 15, 2015). I guess I need to contact you about the application. I appreciate it a lot if you can help to check my application!

当然留了学校邮箱, 然后等着… 记一笔之后以后更新结果


两个多小时之后学校邮箱收到回信, 果然手动效率就是高:

Hi CareF,

Thanks for bearing with us while we took care of the backlog of academic discount requests.

I located and manually approved your application. Congratulations!

We’ve already applied the discount to your GitHub account, and be on the lookout for a separate email with additional information entitled “Powerup get!”

Cheers,
Scott

并且注册 Github 的邮箱收到了升级 Micro plan 的通知. 于是优惠 get√;

然后现在遇到另一件蛋疼的事情: DO 不认 Github 的 Promo code, 称

Incorrect Promo Code!Sorry, this promo is not available for your account at this time.

简单搜索了一下貌似是因为之前用了别人的推荐链接拿了十刀… 于是再去撕, 到 DO 的 support 开工单

Excuse me, I just got my Github student pack which include a $100 promo code for DigitalOcean, but when I try to use it, it says “Incorrect Promo Code!Sorry, this promo is not available for your account at this time.” I wonder how can I get the $100? Thanks a lot!

坐等回应…

照做之, 其中最后一条没找到要求的页面, 于是给了一个 Student pack 页面的截图, 一个 GitHub 账号主页的截图, 等回应
