How to get an azure account without credit card ?

I am student (16 years old) I really love all Microsoft products
I always wanted to use azure free trial but I don`t have a credit or a debit card (my parents will kill me if I ask) ,
I am aware of this https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/free/students/ but it asks for some student email which my collage does not provide so I found this https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/learn/modules/create-windows-virtual-machine-in-azure/3-exercise-create-a-vm I can use azure for limited time but after an hour everything is gone I need to create a new virtual machine every hour so I cant even use this . Then I found this https://www.microsoftazurepass.com/SubmitPromoCode but I do not have any code once again .
Azure is really like a dream for me
Please Microsoft can u help me ( sorry but I did not find any close tag related to my topic )

Hi @techx-4164 ,

I only know one more option:
https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/free/

But a credit card or debit card is required for authentication.

Payment options
We require a credit card or debit card to authenticate you when you sign up, unless previously approved for invoice. Please note that we do not accept >prepaid and virtual credit cards.

Your credit card will initially NOT be charged, except for a temporary authorization hold. Any taxes which may result from receiving services at no charge >are the sole responsibility of the recipient. More details on pricing and billing can be found on our pricing page.

But it does not allow me to use a debit card though here it is mentioned that I can use.

What kind of debit card is it?

Hi, regarding this "temporary authorization hold" could you elaborate further on what this means, does it work like AWS or digital ocean where they take a dollar as a temp charge or is it something different, thank you

Hi @techx-4164,

You can also use a debit card if you don't own a credit card for the Azure free trial account.

Hi @LeonLaude,

I tried multiple times to use my debit cards, but unfortunately the card is not accepted.

Can you please help me on this ?

Thanks,
Vivek
