My son is trying to create a free account on Azure to study Databricks, but it says he is not entitled to a free account and my international credit card is always declined. Strangely enough, in my opinion, he accepted it without any problems. We've tried everything we can to unlock it, but to no avail. All the suggested procedures did not resolve the problem. As he doesn't have a school email, it's also difficult for him to create a student account. Do you have an email address where I can contact Microsoft to ask for help?

    Hi João Colbano,

    Thanks for reaching out to Microsoft Q&A.

    Make sure the emailid, credit card and other details are not used before. If he doesnt have a school email he can use a personal email account to get one time 150$ free credit for 30 days. Are you aware of this and looking for something else?
