(english) Step by step – activate your free Azure monthly credit for your MSDN license


In this blogpost I describe how to activate your free monthly Azure credit for your MSDN license. It’s easy! Per default you will have set a spending limit you can’t exceed – it’s set at zero. You have to explicitly delete this limit to be able to exceed you free credits.
