You can use your credits against any consumption-based Azure service for 12 months following the activation of your OSA Key. Azure pricing is specific to the services consumed.

Azure service credits are redeemable in increments of the approximate equivalent of $100 per unit purchased. See the equivalent amount of Azure service credit per unit purchased by currency using the currency selector. The below table is the list of currencies that can be used to purchase Azure.

Contact your reseller for support, or submit a support case online through the Azure Management Portal. Subscription and billing issues do not require a support contract. However, technical/break-fix issues will require an Azure support plan, which is sold separately.
For details on available support plans, visit the Azure Support Plans page.
