Since 2017, Fortnite has become a phenomenon amid enthusiasts of FPS and Battle Royale games. And why wouldn’t it? Fortnite brings a new bravura of gameplay that had never been of interest before. It combines artilleries and combats with crafting and building, which takes the Battle Royale genre to a whole new level. While Fortnite is a free-to-play game, Epic Games’ foremost source of revenue is micro-transactions.
Micro-transactions aren’t new to online games; they’ve been around for some time now. Similar to other games, Fortnite uses its own version of micro-transactions in the form of V-Bucks, which is an in-game currency used to purchase cosmetic items. In Fortnite, V-Bucks are sold for up to $99.99, with the minimum cost being $9.99.
However, Epic Games has now come up with its new addition to the game, Fortnite V-Bucks Cards. The premise of these cards is the same as any other gift-card; you purchase them with actual money to redeem them for the purchase of in-game supplies. This makes it convenient for users that don’t own a credit card, such as minors, and those that don’t trust online websites with their credit-card information. In this article, we will explain what the Fortnite V-Bucks Cards are, what they cost, where you can purchase them, and how you can redeem them on fortnite.com/vbuckscard.
WHAT ARE FORTNITE V-BUCKS CARDS?
Fortnite V-Bucks Cards work just like any other gift-card. If you purchase one, you’ll find a code on the card, which you enter on the Epic Games website or fortnite.com/vbuckscard, and avail the number of V-Bucks mentioned on that card in your Fortnite account. These cards can be redeemed on any device that supports Fortnite; PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Windows, macOS, iOS, and Android.
The Fortnite V-Bucks Cards come in the amounts that the currency can be purchased for from the in-game store; $9.99 (1,000 V-Bucks), $24.99 (2,500 + 300 V-Bucks), $59.99 (6,000 + 1,500 V-Bucks), and $99.99 (10,000 + 3,500 V-Bucks. It is important to note that these cards can’t be redeemed for actual money and do not provide any additional benefits in contrast to purchasing V-Bucks from the in-game store.
So, why purchase it then? The Fortnite V-Bucks Cards can be convenient for those that either don’t have a bank account or those that don’t want to enter their credit-card credentials on a website. It can also be convenient for console users, since they won’t have to redeem a PlayStation or Xbox gift-card, which can be time-consuming and more expensive, just to purchase some V-Bucks.
WHERE CAN YOU PURCHASE FORTNITE V-BUCKS CARDS FROM?
As of now, the Fortnite V-Bucks Cards are only available across the United States and Canada. If you reside in either country, you’ll find these cards at retail stores. You can also purchase them from Amazon and other online retailers. For those that don’t reside in these countries, Epic Games will release these cards in other countries across the world. However, we are not certain when they will do that. Below are the current retail stores in the United States that you can purchase the Fortnite V-Bucks Card from;
