With this post I want to help to avoid pitfalls in wording of promo code and feature code in context with IBM Cloud.
I wrote in two blog posts about, how to enter feature codes and use them:
- Feature code and free Kubernetes Cluster @IBM Cloud
- How to enter your feature code in the newer IBM Cloud UI? (UPDATE)
- Here is the IBM Cloud documentation: Applying feature codes to Lite accounts
Sometimes you get a “promo (promotion) code” or “feature code” at a conference, at a hackathon or on a website for free IBM Cloud usage.
So, the best definition from my point of view is:
“The promo code wording is often used for a feature code, but feature code is not a promo code.”
