New Feature - Credit Alerts

Hi guys,
This is just a suggestion to introduce you a new feature.
So if you open the Billing page (https://cloud.digitalocean.com/settings/billing) you will have a section called "Your Credit", my suggestion is create a similar section like "Billing Alerts" but with the "Your Credits" value, when this values is lower than "X.YZ money" the user receives an email with this alert.

For me this makes sense because usually I do not visit the site a lot.

Best regards,
Daniel

    Thank you for your feedback unfortunately we can not implement every feature request. We do have the billing alerts that you mentioned. You could also set that to $1 and then you would receive an alert when basically all of our credit runs out. Not ideal, but a potential work around. Thank you

    This is what I am looking for as well:

    I would like to receive a message when my credit is below xx amount, so I can fill it up again. I don't check my balance every month or at regular times. But I want to avoid there is not enough credits on my account.

    I agree this feature should be added. My credit very nearly run out once and I never got an email alert. I was only just in time to add more credit.
