How do redemption codes work for active subscribers?
Applying a redemption code to your account does not extend your next renewal date but instead adds additional exercise credits to your account.
If you have an active subscription and you apply a redemption code for 10 exercises, 10 exercise "credits" will be added to your account. These credits will show up on your subscription page. You can use them manually by clicking the button on your subscription page:
I you ever cancel your Python Morsels subscription, you will retain these credits also. Credits can be used with or without an active Python Morsels subscription, so no need to worry about them disappearing one day. They're there for whenever you choose to use them.
Can I pause the exercises I get each week?
If you signed up for Python Morsels through the Humble Bundle, you can pause by manually disabling the usage of your exercise credits with a big red button at the bottom of your Preferences page:
When you decide to start using your exercise credits again each week, you can click the Enable Exercises button (on the same page) and you'll start receiving exercises again starting on Monday:
That "Disable Exercises" button just stops your credits from being automatically used each week. Once you click "Enable Exercises" again, 1 credit will be used automatically each week for one new exercise assignment.
You can wait as long as you want before re-enabling exercises. Your exercise credits will never expire.
How can I tell whether I've redeemed my Humble Bundle code?
If you visit your subscription page, you should see a section on redemption codes, like this:
If you don't see that section, please try to apply the code again to make sure it's been applied. If you still don't see that section in your account, please ask for help about this issue: email@example.com.
Can I buy lots of the same Humble Bundle and redeem all the codes to the same account?
You cannot. I'd like to eventually be paid for some of the work I do, so I've limited each account to using at most one code from each Humble Bundle sale. You can redeem more than one code if each code is from a different Humble Bundle sale.
