If you're paying for your GitHub subscription with a coupon, and you aren't using your payment method for any other paid features or products on GitHub, you can remove your credit card or PayPal information.

Tip: If you downgrade your account to a free product and you don't have subscriptions for any other paid features or products, we'll automatically remove your payment information.
