Credit expired when first created API key

Hi, Today I created a key to get developer access to the ChatGPT API. I had just opened the key and when i went to check my credit it was already expired. Why is this? This is the first time I have ever attempted to get access the the API. Please Help

This is the free credit everyone got early on that has expired, whether or not you used it.

I thought the credit was given to you when you opened a developer account or created a key

If you used Playground before, even if you have not created any API keys, the clock started then.
