Epic Games Further Detail Physical V-Bucks Cards and the Merry Mint Pickaxe

Epic Games recently announced that they will be selling physical v-buck cards at select retailers and many fans were excited as it will be an easy new way to pick up digital currency for friends and gifts.

In addition to the new way to purchase v-bucks, Epic Games decided to attach special items limited to these physical v-bucks cards. However, many gamers were confused and had a lot of questions for Epic Games, so they decided to take to their blog to detail further upon these retailer v-bucks and the limited time accessories.

For those who are wondering, v-bucks are being currently sold at GameStop, Best Buy, Target, Walmart, and CVS (USA). If you’re looking for the limited-edition Merry Mint Pickaxe then you want to purchase a v-bucks card from GameStop, Target, and/or Amazon 4-star/Amazon Books retail stores.

Make sure to check out the full details about the physical V-Bucks cards and the Merry Mint Pickaxe down below via Epic Games:

I’ve been unable to find the Merry Mint Pickaxe redemption card at any of the participating retailers. What’s going on?

Due to the high demand for this item, we continue to replenish retailers’ Merry Mint Pickaxe inventory. Please check with your local retailer to confirm availability. Remember that you must make a purchase of a Fortnite item at a participating retailer to receive a  Merry Mint Pickaxe redemption code.
