Once your code has arrived you can redeem your Xbox gift card at the following locations:

On Xbox One:

Make sure your console is connected to the Internet and you’re signed in to the Microsoft account on which you want to redeem the code.

  1. Select Store > Use a code.
  2. Follow the instructions on the screen to redeem your gift card or code.
  • If the card or code has money on it, we'll apply the entire balance to your Microsoft account. You can use it to buy things from Microsoft Store online, on Windows 10, and on Xbox One.
