    Anyone long using Amazon's free EC2 that has 750 hrs? How is the experience?

    Also do they charge debit cards automatically if the threshold is bypassed? Wondering because they will have the *** of debit card.

    Any alternative free suggestion of free windows vps other than google cloud? Azure dont support debit cards so..no option.

    Better buy new aws account so no fear of deduction in case you get billed.

    31days *24 hours =744. It's impossible to go past the 750 hour mark with 1 instance. They won't charge you
