Azure upgrade email broken link. How to upgrade?

Scholasticus, Tom 0 Reputation points

Hi Everyone,

I received an email from stating, "Upgrade by June 23, 2024 to save your data and keep building in Azure". The email has an "Upgrade now >" link which goes to:

That page states, "Account management has moved to Azure portal". That page has no info about upgrading. The links off of it are a maze other other pages. Haven't find a specific "Upgrade" page yet.

Has anyone else received a similar email? What do I have to do to keep Azure.? I have a student account right now. Made a few small things: DBs, a website. I'd like to keep using and studying Azure. It would be great if the "Upgrade Now >" link worked. Is there a free, least expensive way to "Upgrade"? It would be great if MS made the process easier.

Thanks, All.

    Scholasticus, Tom

    Thank you for reaching out.

    Seems like you are running out of credit from my understanding.

    The Azure for Students account provides you with $100 in Azure credits to be used within the first 12 months, plus select free services. Once you exhaust your available credit or reach the end of 12 months, you can upgrade to a pay-as-you-go subscription.

    To upgrade your Azure for Students Starter account, follow these step

    If you’re eligible, you can upgrade to an Azure free account. You get $200 Azure credit in your billing currency and 12 months of free services on upgrade. If you don’t qualify for a free account, you can upgrade to pay-as-you-go rates with a support request.
