We’re excited to introduce a new benefit to the Replit Core plan called flexible credits.
Starting today, if you are a Replit Core member, you have access to $8 in flexible credits per month that you can use on any of our cloud services, such as Autoscale Deployments, Reserved VM Deployments, Outbound Data Transfer, and Postgres.
These credits cover the cost of a base tier Reserved VM Deployment for an entire month, so you get more flexibility and value from your Replit experience.
It seems obvious but i think it’s better to have a real answer on that, for everyone :
Does the $8 credits replace completely the 6,000,000 free cpu cycles we had for Autoscale deployment ?
That would mean that instead of having 6*$1.25=$7.50 free compute cycles + 2.5*$0.40=$1 free requests on Autoscale, we now have $8 that can be used for any type of usage ?
That’s very nice for people that can now have a free Reserved VM with their Core subscription but if we used Autoscale deployments, it’s not a gift at all because we have a bit less credits than before
I don’t really care about the $2 more but imagine if you had proposed $10 credits instead of $8 you would have been able to say that Autoscale lovers would be able to use MORE credits than before and that Reserved VM lovers would have been able to have a nice VM + the ability to test Autoscale with $2 more. Maybe that would have sounded better than just saying there is a new benefit while removing another feature
