I am trying to redeem my $100 AWS credits that I got from HackerRank CodeStorm, but I don't have credit card, so I can't complete my registration to AWS.

Does anyone know how to redeem AWS credits without credit card?

Hey, I was in a similar situation, with a bunch of AWS credits and no credit card. I ended up not being able to use any of those credits until I added a credit card to my account.

However, it says here that you might be able to use an Amazon Gift Card instead, or that you can contact them directly and they will set up invoicing manually. Another alternative would be using a prepaid credit card (which you can buy online).

    So without credit card or Amazon Gift Card I can't sign up, right? Can virtual credit card be an option?

      VCC's are not an option. When AWS was started , alot of people scammed them and ripped off their "Pay as you go" feature using VCC's. I don't think they would allow it at all.

Credit card may have purpose. If your usage bills exceed your free credit amount then amazon can easily charge from your card. If you want you can use your parents card.
