    This needs to be implemented asap, literally no reason to force people putting their credit card details/paypal when its a gift. When you get birthday gifts, you aren't supposed to be showing your bank details before receiving it. I'm not sure why is this grace period even a thing if its creating problems for you guys.

    I just ran into this issue. It's clearly trying to force people into a subscription they'll forget about. I do not have credit cards nor a working paypal so I mined crypto for 15 days, bought a working gift link, and now Discord has essentially stolen my $10 because I can't redeem a credit I already own. Will never buy nor request Nitro from a friend again until this is resolved, not ony because it's extortion, but also because I couldn't even use it if they got me it.

    It may just be technical but this comes off as super shady, Discord. I don't want to and shouldn't have to expose my payment information to you in order to use a gift. I got two Nitro gifts a month ago, hours apart, from two different people, and now I believe I'm being coerced into using my payment information if I want to redeem the second one. If there isn't a way to delete that information afterwords, I am going to consider removing my account. :( It's a real shame, because I was considering subscribing to Nitro before I realized how sketchy this was.

    Well I was in the same boat a month ago. After trying out several things, I gave up and decided to enter my payment details. I opened discord in my browser, and clicked on subscribe. And voilà, I didn't need to enter any payment details (it was optional). It consumed the nitro credit and I got my nitro. Opening discord in the browser worked for me, but I don't know if it will for others. However, I think it's worth a try. Good luck!

    I'm currently stuck with the same issue which is leading to another issue that when I move to put my credentials in to activate a sub in order to use the credits, it adds a server boost payment as extra which I do not want. There's no option to take off the Server Boost addition. :/

    I got nitro credits from gift also and can't activate it without subscribing and pay. Don't put a gift option at nitro if the receiver will still pay

    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.

    Thanks for the idea. I claimed my nitro credits from login my discord account to browser without paying anything. Just proceed to nitro classic subscription the one with 10$ your nitro credit will be used and activate it for free

    I think this is bullcrap and should be removed, I've been gifted by close friends multiple times and they just wasted their money.

    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.

    Please its actually bs my friend gave me nitro as a gift and i cant even use it because another friend also gave it to me, so im stuck with stupid credit and nothing to do with it because i have no bank account. Funny how after 2 years yall still aint fixed it. :|

    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.

    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.

    This has been an issue for 10 months now and it hasn't been fixed? Woww okay, in my situation I have a friend supplying me with nitro classic and I accepted a gift to renew it maybe two days before my current planned ended. I figured it would just add air time to my nitro instead of turning into a credit. I had no idea about the credit system, it's super tough because I cant accept the credit, so really Discord just kind of stole $5 since the subscription is going unclaimed.

    I agree, Recently a friend gifted me a Nitro classic ( $5 ) And a week or so, Another friend gifted me a Discord nitro ( $10 ) I claimed it and it didnt upgrade my plan. instead, it became a Nitro Credit. Well its all good but the problem is, I dont have a got damn credit card neither paypal? I cant even do anything right now since i dont have a freaking credit card. WELP discord prolly scammed $10 then, GG

    I really need them to implement this or else I have no choice but to ask my dad to give me his payment info and tell him I will then cancel the subscription (I am literally so tempted to do this)
