Notion Credits: How To Get Notion Personal Pro for Free

Get Notion Plus for free without paying anything.

Notion comes with a generous free plan that lets you use unlimited blocks of any type. But what if you want to access some of the Pro features, such as larger file uploads, longer page history, and more guest collaborators?

In this article, I’ll show you how to use Notion credits to get the Notion paid plans for free.

👋Note: Notion has removed the free credit option, and you can no longer use it to get the paid plan for free. This makes this article no longer relevant. If you’re a startup, you can apply and get up to 6 months of Notion for free

  • Unfortunately, I think they remove the credit option from the settings

  • I have been using Notion since November last year. When I found the credits section, I completed all the tasks and purchased the then-called personal pro plan.

    I was just telling a friend about the same; she instantly asked me to set it up for her, only to be disappointed and find the section not listed anymore.

    Has the process changed, or have they just removed it?

      Hello Manas.

      It appears that they have removed the free credit section from the app. I contacted the Notion team about this, but have yet to hear back. I’ll update this comment if I receive a response.
