When can I use my free credits?

Use your USD200 credit on any Azure products during the first 30 days after signing up for your free account. At the end of 30 days or after you have used your USD200 credit, continue using more than 25 services that are always free after you upgrade your account to a Pay-As-You-Go Azure subscription and remove the spending limit. If you stay within the service quantities included for services that are always free, you will not pay anything.
