Easy Way To Send Fortnite Gift Card As Gift

4 min read

Fornite is by far one of the most popular video games to date. Even if you’ve not heard of it, I would dare to bet (and I’m not even a betting person) that you’ve probably seen one of the many dances in your social media newsfeed. But if you haven’t and you’re curious, go ahead and take a look at them here. 

Although Mario Kart is more my speed (shout out to Princess Peach), there’s no denying that Fornite is appealing to all ages. The game is free to play but users are required to use (aka buy) in-game V-Bucks for customization capabilities. 

Wondering the ins and outs of V-Bucks? We’ve found the information you need.

What are V-Bucks?

Epic’s battle royale game is free. And, with its stonkingly high Fortnite player numbers in mind, Epic has to make money from it somehow. The answer is Fortnite V-Bucks, a virtual currency with which you can acquire a handsome collection of colorful cosmetics in exchange for real money.

You can’t, however, spend your digital dollars on anything that will give you a competitive advantage. These items are purely for fashion purposes, which is an end unto itself in our book.

You can also use your Fortnite V-Bucks to grab yourself a Battle Pass, a tiered system within each season in which you can unlock challenges to win your self more cosmetic stash.

The Battle Pass costs 950 V-Bucks and, in the item store, outfits and emotes tend to cost between 1500 and 500. legendaries cost 2000. 

Can you give Fornite V-Bucks gift cards?

You cannot, but only because Fortnite gift cards don’t actually exist. There’s no need to be discouraged by the answer, though, because we’ve found a solution that essentially does the same thing. Instead, you can give a gift card for the recipient’s gaming platform. Here’s we found giving free fortnite gift cards codes 2019 without any survey. 

The first thing you need to do is figure out what platform your gamer usually plays on. Since there’s no such thing as a “Fortnite gift card,” you have to buy a card for the specific platform. For example:

PlayStation: If they play on PlayStation, a PlayStation Store gift card will do the trick.

Xbox: Xbox players will need, you guessed it, an Xbox Gift Card.

Switch: For Switch players, you’ll need to grab a Nintendo eShop gift card.

PC: There isn’t a specific store for PC gamers to buy Fornite stuff from, but you can get them a generic pre-paid Visa to use towards the in-game currency.

Android: The same goes for Android players—since the game uses Epic’s own launcher (like the PC version), a pre-paid debit card is the way to go.

iOS: Since Fortnite is available from the iOS App Store, an iTunes gift card is the best answer here

Something to remember: if your recipient plays on a PC on Android, you won’t be able to give them a gift card for these platforms.

You can, however, pick them up a Visa gift card that they can use towards it. Wondering where to find one? Here is a detailed list of places where you can buy a Visa gift card.  

There are a couple of options available to purchase these gift cards including electronic or plastic. 

Where To Purchase An Electronic Gift Card

You can find an eGift card for each of the platforms directly through their stores’ websites. For example, you can purchase an Xbox Live gift card through the Microsoft Store. 

Where To Purchase A Plastic Gift Card

Retailers such as Target, Gamestop, Best Buy and Walmart offer physical (also known as plastic) gift cards.

Can You Buy V-Bucks With An Xbox Gift Card?

Yes; you can purchase V-Bucks with your Xbox gift card. 

What Are V-Bucks Used For In Fortnite?

V-Bucks can be used to buy skins, emotes (dances), season passes and more.
