How To Give Fortnite V-Bucks

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? 

V-Bucks are an in-game currency that can be used towards Fornite. They’re short for Vinderbucks or Vindertech Bucks. 

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 how.

Do you know which gaming platform the player uses? You’ll need to determine that information first before proceeding. Once you have that answer, follow the guide below: 

  • iOS: iTunes gift card
  • PlayStation: PlayStation Store gift card
  • Switch: Nintendo eShop gift card
  • Xbox: Xbox Live gift card

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 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.
