If someone in your life plays Roblox – or perhaps a better phrase would be “develops on Roblox” – then a Roblox gift card could be an excellent present for them. Roblox gift cards usually contain Robux currency, which allows Roblox players to redeem the currency for in-game items such as clothing and other cosmetics for their avatars. You might be wondering where you can pick up Roblox gift cards, so we’ve put together a handy little guide for you explaining where you might be able to grab gift cards for this wonderful creative sandbox.
Try and find free Robux first
While a gift card may seem like an excellent idea at first glance, the truth is it may be possible to circumvent the need to pay for Robux entirely. There are many services that offer Robux free of charge, so before you purchase a gift card for the Roblox developer-slash-player in your life, consider visiting one of these services and hitting up their free Robux option. You’d be amazed how quick, easy, and secure it can be to get some free Robux, and then the world is your oyster when it comes to buying cosmetics or even advertising space for games.
The first place you will probably stop off to pick up a Roblox gift card is Amazon; after all, it’s by far the most popular online marketplace in the world. It should come as no surprise, then, that Amazon does indeed stock Roblox gift cards in different denominations. Of course, the amount you’ll pay corresponds directly to the amount of in-game Robux you’re getting, so there’s no way to get around the pricing; it tends to be the case that no matter where you’re buying Roblox gift cards, they will, largely speaking, remain the same price.
Online retailer stores
Rather than using Amazon – which some people have an ethical opposition to – it might be a good idea to use a favoured retailer’s online store to purchase Roblox gift cards. US retailers that stock the cards include Walmart, Target, Best Buy, and Gamestop, and you can also find the cards at various 7-Eleven stores around the country. UK-wise, you can purchase the cards from retailers such as WH Smith, as well as major supermarkets like Sainsbury’s and Tesco. If you look hard enough, you’re sure to find Roblox gift cards at less well-established online retailers, too, so if you’d like to support smaller businesses, this is the way to do it.
Around the world, it’s also possible to go into a physical store (depending, of course, on whether they’re open near you) and pick up a Roblox gift card. Since Roblox is a reasonably specialised game – although many, many people play it on a regular basis – you may have to search a little before you find a physical retailer that stocks Roblox gift cards. However, most major supermarkets tend to have at least a couple of different payment tiers in stock, and they’ll be with the rest of the gift cards, so make sure you peruse carefully before you give up and search somewhere else.
The official Roblox website
Naturally, you can purchase Roblox gift cards via the official website, but there’s a catch: you can only do this if you’re in the United States or Canada. If you reside anywhere else in the world, then you will unfortunately need to look elsewhere in order to purchase a Roblox gift card for yourself. US and Canadian residents can input the intended recipient’s name, as well as their own, and send the gift card digitally. You’ll also get a limited-edition Bacon and Egg Hair accessory at time of writing if you buy a Roblox gift card, so if that’s something you’ve been hankering after, be sure to pick it up!
As with many gift cards, you’re unlikely to find Roblox gift card options in dedicated resellers such as the UK’s CeX. This is because gift cards can’t really be purchased pre-owned, so any shop that deals predominantly in pre-owned goods almost certainly won’t stock the gift cards. That doesn’t mean there isn’t anywhere to find pre-owned gift cards, but resellers will often want more for their cards than they paid; otherwise, there’s no point in selling them, since there’s no profit incentive. It’s always best to buy gift cards new, anyway, because then you’ll know they haven’t been used!
What can you do with a Roblox gift card?
As we said earlier, Roblox gift cards can be redeemed for the equivalent value in Robux, the Roblox in-game currency. You can use Robux for lots of different things. They can be used to directly purchase in-game items for avatars, but there are other things you can do with them as well. For example, did you know that you can buy in-game Passes for certain games that will grant you items and bonuses within that game? It’s true – games such as the phenomenally popular Jailbreak have the option to buy in-game boons with Robux.
Some Roblox games also require you to pay an upfront Robux fee, so if you want to play these games, a Robux gift card is the best way to do it. It is possible to accrue Robux over time, but it takes a huge amount of effort and dedication, so buying a gift card is a nice fast-track way to give a Roblox player a boost!
