Physical V-Bucks Cards for Fortnite to be Sold at Retailers Soon; Exclusive In-Game Gifts Will Be Offered at Select Stores

Epic Games have taken to their blog to announce that physical V-Bucks cards will be heading to retailers very soon!

Similar to gift cards for Sony and Microsoft, users can soon pick up physical V-Bucks cards for Fortnite giving players the choice to either buy in-game money both online and in-store. No specific retailers have been announced as of yet, but we can assume to see them popping up in stores such as GameStop, Target, and even Walmart.

Lastly, Epic Games did note that if you do pick up a physical V-Bucks card this Holiday season, players will receive a free exclusive gift. Select retailers in the US, United Kingdom, France, and Germany will include a gift code for an in-game Merry Mint Pickaxe free with any purchase of an officially licensed Fortnite product

Hey all,


Let’s talk about a new way to get V-Bucks! Over the next few weeks, select US retailers will now offer V-Bucks cards available both in-store and online. 

The V-Bucks cards work everywhere you can play Fortnite. After purchasing a V-Bucks card, visit www.fortnite.com/vbuckscard to learn more and redeem your V-Bucks for use on any device. Retailers in Mexico, Canada and Germany are on the way, with more countries coming online as we roll the V-Buck cards out to new regions. 

We also have lots of new Fortnite gear hitting stores in time for the holiday shopping season. Select retailers in the US, United Kingdom, France, and Germany will include a gift code for an in-game Merry Mint Pickaxe free with any purchase of an officially licensed Fortnite product while supplies last*.
