Fortnite has quickly become the biggest game of the decade so there is a good chance you know somebody who would love to get the gift of free V-bucks. Although the game is free to play most of the cosmetic items that make it worth playing are locked behind a V-Bucks purchase wall.
Because you can not directly gift V-Bucks within the game itself you are going to have to get a little creative in your approach. First your going to need to find out what platform they are playing Fortnite on, then you have a couple of options to gift them the free V-bucks.
Since there is no such thing at the moment as a “Fortnite Gift Card”, you will need to select one of the following methods depending on the platform.
Most of the types of Gift Cards can be found at Best Buy, Wal-Mart, Amazon, and similar retailers. These Gift Cards are physical versions with the picture of the platform on them. They are great because you can mail them or package them with another gift.Once the lucky player receives their V-Bucks in the form of a platform Gift Card they will need to redeem the points within the specific platform. Although they could potentially use the credits added to the platform to buy anything within that platforms digital store, there is a good chance they will use them towards V-Bucks if that’s what they were asking for. You can’t force them to spend the credits on V-Bucks but I wouldn’t worry too much.
