AppSumo credits are a currency that can only be used on AppSumo. Your AppSumo credit balance can be applied toward the purchase of any of our deal purchases. Occasionally, AppSumo offers physical products like conference tickets, books, or other items that can only be purchased with cash or cash-like equivalents, so credits (and discounts) cannot be applied.
The AppSumo credits exchange rate is 1 ASC = 1 USD, so there's no confusion with purchasing products. Additionally, AppSumo credits are like honey, sugar, and maple syrup: they never expire (and they're pretty sweet)! :)
You can review your AppSumo credit balance easily from within your Account page.
- Head to AppSumo
- Select "Account" from the navigation bar at the top of the page
- You'll see a preview of your AppSumo credit balance (in green text) on the "My Rewards" tile
- Click on the "My Rewards" tile (or bookmark this direct link: https://appsumo.com/account/credits/) and your credits will also be displayed here!
You'll be presented with the option to apply your credit balance to your purchase at checkout (as AppSumo credits are an accepted payment method). If your credits are automatically applied to your purchase and you're not *quite* ready to part with them, you can unclick the AppSumo credits option from the "Payment Method" section of your cart and you can enter alternative payment information.
