Credits update on the 'monthly anniversary' of the date you joined the site. For example, if you joined on 17th November your credits will refresh on 17th of each month. If you are an individual member the number of credits will return to 100 or 300 (depending upon your membership package) when they update. Therefore it's wise to use your credits each month as they don't carry over into the following month. If you are a school member your account has unlimited credits from the date you join until the date the account closes.
