I have seen various threads on BHW looking for or selling AWS Credits.. but if you are running a startup or business seriously, there is an easy I discovered recently.

On IndieHacker, there is this thread discussing about a membership program called JoinSecret here -

While Secret is free to join and offers dozens of SaaS deals for free but the real fun starts with their premium subscription which generally costs €49 annually. They have 100+ premium deals under the membership but the major ones are - $5,000 free AWS credit for two years, €36,000 free credit on Scaleway, $2,000 credit on Airtable, $4,000 credit on Freshworks, $500 credit on Bubble, and 12 months free on Sendgrid, etc. Currently, they are offering extra 30% off on the Premium Membership with promo code SPECIAL30 which make this Secret premium more affordable i.e. €34.3

They do have an invite program too where If you sign up via my link I will save $5 on Premium for every friend who joins Secret & gets approved. I think I am not allowed to share my invite link here on BHW, so can visit directly and see if this can be helpful to you. Also, please make me aware if I can share my invite link here by any chance.
If your question is specific towards the coding for AWS Credits. Here is what is written on the offer page -
and I quote

"This offer is available for both existing and new clients
Email us at [email protected] and specify the URL of your site with your business model for us to assess your eligibility for this deal. Our team will get back to you within 24 hours. Only startups that never benefited from AWS Activate credits before are eligible. This deal is not applicable for agencies or consultants. Credits are valid for 2 years."

This is usual verification which is needed for AWS credits no matter you join via this program or any other.

Also, the joining is not automatic at JoinSecret. They manually approve each application and it needs to be signup via the professional domain, but normally it doesn't take more than 12 hours to get approved. I don't think Gmail or yahoo emails are allowed for registration though.
Hey guys, Yes! the service still works. However, this offer was only for a limited time and they only have yearly plan for now.
