Not applicable Gitlab credit for Google Cloud?

Hello all,

Yesterday I started a Kubernetes cluster and as some of you might now, Gitlab offers 200$ free credit on top of the 300$ Google offers for new users on this. So, I clicked on the Apply for credit button and applied for it but I have just got a refusal because I have not applied with a valid corporate email.

Is this expected? I am building my application which I hope in future becomes a company, otherwise I would not be begging free triers, etc. It does not make sense for me they only want established companies.

Thank you in advance and regards.
