What are prepaid Minecraft codes and gift codes?

Minecraft prepaid cards can be used on a Microsoft account (that is not already associated with a copy of the game) and entitle the cardholder to one Minecraft license (in other words, one copy of Minecraft).  

Minecraft Prepaid Minecoin Cards 

Prepaid gift cards are also available for in-game currency called Minecoins, for use in the Bedrock versions of Minecraft which feature a Marketplace.  

Note: These prepaid cards are for in-game currency only and cannot be used to purchase a copy of Minecraft. 

Redeem a Minecoin Prepaid Card 

  1. Go to codetocontent.com. 
  2. Enter your payment card number and PIN.  
  3. Enter and validate your email address/Xbox Live Account. 
  4. Check the box confirming you’ve read the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy. 
  5. Click REDEEM CARD

You will receive an email with a final redemption code and instructions on where to redeem that code. 

Once you have redeemed your Minecoins, they will be linked to your Xbox Live account so that you can access your coins and purchases from all your supported devices that run Minecraft. If you need to create an Xbox Live account, visit www.xbox.com/live and follow the instructions on the site.  

Note: Gift codes for Minecraft for Windows are redeemed in the Microsoft Store, not on the Minecraft site If you need help with your code for Minecraft for Windows, visit Microsoft Support

Prepaid Card and Gift Code Redemption Issues 

Note: Gift codes can no longer be purchased from our site; today, gift codes can be digitally purchased through Amazon and physical cards can be purchased at various retail outlets.
