Valorant Gift Cards: How to Purchase & Redeem Them?
Valorant gift cards or Riot Games’ prepaid gift cards are an easy way to purchase in-game currency without having to use a credit card or a bank account. The Valorant gift card can be purchased digitally or from local retailers and can be redeemed by entering the pin code on the card in the in-client store. Unlike League of Legends, there is no gifting system in Valorant where you can send in-game gifts and cosmetics to your friends.
Gifting in Valorant was initially targeted to be out by the end of 2020 but it has still not been implemented. The company stated that it is still excited about the idea but as the developers are prioritizing other things at the moment, the gifting system has landed on the back burner.
With the in-game gifting system ruled out, you can now opt for Valorant gift cards. These redeemable Valorant gift cards can be purchased online from trusted websites. Amazon is one of the trusted sites from which players can opt to purchase gift cards.
Valorant gift cards by Riot Games
Riot Games offers prepaid Valorant gift cards in various denominations. They can be purchased only in the United States, and can only be redeemed in the United States, Canada, and parts of Latin America. It is also important to note that these Valorant gift cards can only be redeemed in Valorant and cross-game redemption is not supported.
Riot Games also clearly states that purchasing prepaid gift cards from a third-party merchant, such as online auctions and non-Riot authorized retailers, is highly advised against and Riot Games will not be in a position to assist players if the cards do not work.
Upon purchasing the cards, players should at least keep the digital copy and receipt until they are able to verify that they have successfully redeemed the card. If any error occurs with the redemption process, the card and store receipt will prove vital in further investigation. Currently, players can only buy the official Valorant gift cards through Amazon and later redeem them in the in-game store.
