Yearlong Azure FREE Study and Test Version for Virtual Taining Day, Challenges and Certificates switched to pay as you go after three weeks

Oliver Reich 5 Reputation points

How come that my yearlong testversion of Azure is expensive all of a sudden? I am working extremely hard on Virtual Training Day, Challenges, Learning Paths and for the certifications - and behind my back the test versions are switched to extremely expensive versions.

I am going to be billed almost 4000 Euros and there is nothing I can do against it. I am worried that I as a Microsoft student am abused, exploited and ruined

    @Oliver Reich - Welcome to Microsoft Q&A and thanks for reaching out.

    Sorry for the inconvenience this must have caused!

    Microsoft Azure subscription and billing related issues are currently not supported in the Q&A forums, the supported products are listed over here : (more to be added later on).

    I suggest you create a support request over here: The ticket enables you to work closely with the support engineers and get a quick resolution to your issue.

    FYI: Azure Billing and Subscription Management support is included in the Basic Support Plan without any charge.

    You can also try and ideally the “Submit a support ticket” button will work on this page for them as a first step too.

    Hope this helps. and please feel free to reach out if you have any further questions.
