Puzzling Expired Credit Grants in my usage Dashboard

I have a pay-as-you-go subscription and have been testing APIs for last few months now. In my Dashboard I see this Expired Credit Grants (current month usage, which is still not complete). I tried to understand by looking up in help, but its puzzling.
Can someone please explain what does this mean? Can I do something with it or it will just keep showing up on my every month’s dashboard?
Thanks a lot in advance.

Hi and welcome to the forum!

When your originally created the account 18$ were granted as a free trial with this amount expiring after three months.
That’s what and why you are seeing this.

Then, yes, the information is not exactly relevant anymore. But the information may remain. As you rack up more costs the red bar will slowly become smaller in the grand scheme of things.

That makes sense. Thank you for prompr reply. Have a great day.

I can’t agree with shripad.learn that this “makes sense.” Please get rid of the expired credits part of the usage bar and just show how much unused credit is in my pay-as-you go account.

It would also be nice if the endpoints returned a more descriptive error than “too many requests” when funds have expired.

OP likely had something different in mind when creating the topic.
You can see the remaining credits here: https://platform.openai.com/account/billing/overview
I can see a reason why someone would want to display expired credits but also agree that the interface can be refined.

Regarding the API error messages: I suggest you create a new topic for API feedback as this is off-topic here.

Hope this helps somewhat!
