    Yeah i remember that notification last year of 12 month expiry of credits. Doesn't apply to me as I've been using up all my credits - mainly with my Wordpress7 2GB DigitalOcean VPS being the one that eats into my DO referral credits.

    I have some credits but I have nothing Live running on DO.
    All droplets are just testing and will run for 1-2 days only.

    Too bad I deposited $$$ last 2014 :/

    I ask them to let me use it instead of expiring it. I ask 6 months extension yet they gave me double free amount :D.

    Well at least they sent out an email.

    Bought 5 SSL certs on Namecheap on Black Friday. Go to use them, a big red "EXPIRED" is by the name. Seems that the "promo" deal expired even though I bought them. No email. No warning. No notice when I bought them that they would expire. They're credits to buy the SSL cert which is normally $9... I got them for $1. So, not a big loss but nevertheless I would've liked to be warned or notified that they were expiring.
