Game cards are cards used for various online video games, usually for the purpose of either obtaining in-game membership, currency, and/or, in some cases, exclusive items that can be used in the game.On Roblox, they are called Roblox cards and can be used to purchase Roblox Premium or Robux (and formerly Builders Club. When redeemed, the user will earn an exclusive item depending on where and when it was purchased. They can be bought in increments of $10, $25, and $40 — in some cases, $5, $50 or $10-100 — in the United States, Canada, New Zealand, Australia, the United Kingdom, Denmark, Finland, Norway, and Sweden. With the release of Roblox Premium, the Gamecard section of the website is not accessible due to the Premium purchase page not having any information about gamecards unlike the former Builders Club purchase screen, but can still be accessed by going to this link.
When a game card is redeemed, Roblox Credit will be added onto the account. It is equivalent to the value(s) of the different gamecards and can be used to purchase Robux or Roblox Premium. An update made during October 2019 allowed users to convert leftover Roblox Credit to Robux.
Roblox has utilized "Fastcard", a popular system used by businesses to create and distribute gift cards, since the creation of Roblox game cards.
Roblox first released their game cards on September 26, 2010, at the children's toys retailer, Toys R Us, in the United States. Roblox cards can now be found globally at different retailers in the United States, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom.
A game card can be used to buy Builders Club membership or Robux. The consumer can scratch off a gray bar on the back of the card which reveals a PIN number. The PIN can then be typed into the game card section of the website, where it can be redeemed. Game cards can also be used to obtain certain exclusive items (usually related to the time of year), depending on the amount or store; when redeemed, the items will be added to the consumer's account. The available items change every month and can be viewed in the game card section of the website.
