If you’ve played the battle royale video game Epic Games, chances are you’ve found a Fortnite gift card at some point. As many players know, gift cards are used to add V-Bucks to an account.
V-Bucks are the in-game currency and are used to purchase cosmetic items from the Item Shop as well as a Battle Pass.
After earning a Fortnite gift card, you will receive a code that you will need to enter on the Epic Games website. While this process seems simple, some users are confused.
Furthermore, many scam websites try to trick them into entering gift card info, hence this guide.
Redeem your Fortnite gift card in a few easy steps
To redeem a Fortnite gift card, you need to go to a page on the Epic website. Before clicking on anything, make sure you are on the right website because many scam websites look like official sites.
If you already have it, you’ll want to click the yellow “Start” button and enter the code that can be found on the gift card. The code is located on the back of the card, and you have to scratch it off first.
After entering the code, you need to select the device on which Fortnite Battle Royale is playing to complete the process. Gift cards are available on PlayStation, Xbox, PC, mobile, and Nintendo Switch.
The redemption process is the same for each platform as the Epic account is connected to the platform account. However, PlayStation and Xbox gamers may decide to use code redemption on their own platforms instead of logging into Fortnite’s official website.
It is important to note that you will need to sign in with your Fortnite account on the website. If you have multiple accounts, make sure you sign in with the correct account before entering the gift card code.
How do I get a V-Bucks gift card?
Fortnite gift cards are available at major retailers in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Ireland, the Netherlands, and Australia.
Epic is working with card providers and retailers around the world to bring gift cards to more countries, but the process takes many years.
Some cards are area locked, meaning you can only use them in compatible areas. For example, if you buy a gift card in the UK, it may not be compatible with a Fortnite account created in Canada.
Furthermore, it is important to note that V-Bucks purchased on the Nintendo Switch cannot be shared on other devices. Fortunately, this does not happen with other platforms, as this currency can be shared between other compatible devices.
