The easiest way to redeem a gift card or code is by visiting microsoft.com/redeem. Enter the 25-character code, select Next, then follow the instructions on the screen.
- 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.
- If the card or code is for a specific app or game, we'll add it to your personal library, where you can download and install it. Go to My Library in Microsoft Store. When some apps or games are redeemed, they will take you to the product page where you can also download and install.
See Find your downloads and product keys for more info about downloading and installing apps and games.
