    I tried using my Nitro credit and insert the info but it ended up charging the account instead. I don't understand why you need to have it filled out in order to use the credit in the first place. It really bothers me. Especially since I've been sitting on my credit for a while now.

    Is Discord literally just ignoring this post? This should get implemented ASAP because when I got my first free 30 day offer from Discord themselves, it asks for my Credit Card details like why.. it's a gift, why would you force me to put my credit card details? That's beyond stupid.

    I've been trying to claim this free gift from Discord for over 2 hours now and I haven't found a solution on how to claim it without putting my credit card details. If you're wondering what I'm talking about here it is.

    I've already tried claiming this gift with the browser version but it's still not working. If you tell me to use the 'Autofill from Browser' for some reason it's changed to 'Autofill from Browser N/A'.

    you guys do all realise you can do this already, right? when asked for a payment method, you can select your credit and the "price" will become 0.00 dollars.

    Reponse to arthoeslent, Sadly that is not true. It asks for credit card info which most people redeeming a gift don't have, as they are all probably around 13 to 15. Meaning they can't redeem unless they get their parents permission to use their card which their parents most likely would say no and be suspicious of it.

    Ridiculous. Really ridiculous of you, Discord. Can't people enjoy a free Nitro without having to enter their credit card info like that? I don't want to go ask my parents (I'm old enough to have my own card but haven't made it yet) for their credit card info... Consider those people that don't have a credit card and then force them doing this. Hopefully ONE DAY they'll do something about this. I could ask a friend of mine to enter their info but it's too risky and I don't want to do that even.

    I got a free nitro gift from discord for a month, but I have to fill the credit cards and all. Does discord expect a 13-17 year old have acces to credit cards? Its weird and pain, I really want to claim it so that I could use it to change pfp and such

    Yes omg I'm literally going through this right now ! My girlfriend had bought me robux since I was losing my subscription today. I had 10 months of nitro credit and I was confused because I thought it would keep running since it was a gift. Once it disappeared because I didn't add a payment method I lost it. My girlfriend had bought me $10 nitro as a birthday gift and it added to credit and I did not get my nitro. So they basically scammed my gf and there goes her $10 !! yay !! so happy :|

    This shouldn't still be a problem, it's 2021. If your app is gonna be janky and shitty, atleast fix this simple issue instead of basically scamming money out of everyone

    I fixed this problem by getting a paysafecard account, loading 25 dollars on it, paying for a discord monthly sub on google play while having my account linked and then it will give you the credit after your own first month

    for the love of god they need to do this already, i have 2 months on my account and it's frustrating me because i thought the credit would roll through instead of my card but they still charged me. and now it's just ticking me off that i have to pay for a YEAR of the 10 dollar sub just to use the 20 dollars that i have in nitro credits. absolutely scummy of them to do.

    I've had this issue twice now. I got Nitro from my Xbox Game Pass, and it wanted me to type credit card information. Then I got the automatic free one month, which ended with the same issue. I would like if it was fixed.

    Discord needs to do something about Account Credits, I mean not everyone has a credit card

    And even if you do have a credit card, not everyone wants Discord to have their bank details, it is confidential stuff. This is straight but stupid.

    Hey guys, you can actually use your discord credit by going on to WEB discord browser. Then go to settings > Subscriptions > Subscribe. Go ahead and select the plan of your nitro. Then you'll see that the billing info says the nitro credit is applied, select "don't add payment" option and you get the nitro right away! :) Make sure to use web discord.

    Yea same, I also wanted to claim my Nitro which was in the inventory... But as someone said, we don't have a credit card or a bank account just to claim a gift... It doesn't make sense to do so! 

    I get it, your only way of income through the app is Nitro, but please allow us to claim gifted nitro's that are in the inventory... Just make it so like whenever the old subscription ends, it automatically claims the one in the inventory. I was one of the few lucky person to win a Discord Nitro GIveaway, and it's such a shame to not be able to use it.

    Hey! there actually is a way to renew it without adding your credit info. My nitro recently ran out and was gifted another month by a friend. When trying to renew the credit, there is an option to select to have your card info optional and to be charged $0 :)

    hi, for people who has the trouble with this, i found out a way that worked for me without the need to enter payment details. recently my bf gifted me a nitro classic while i still had the nitro he gifted before. so the new one became a credit. i claimed the credit by logging in discord browser and went to subscribe the nitro classic. it will show that you have the credit and you can use it without the need to enter your details. i hope this helps :)
