How and Where to Buy Twitch Gift Cards

Purchasing one of Twitch’s new gift cards is simple, even for those without a Twitch account. Interested buyers can simply head over to the Twitch website, where an entire page is dedicated to the different versions of the bold purple map. Most digital purchases will go through Amazon, where you can find a variety of options – from birthday wishes to graduation celebrations – and select the right price. Digital Twitch Gift Cards can be purchased for between $25 and $200 for US, Canadian and Australian buyers, between €25 and €100 for European buyers and between £25 and £100 for UK buyers.

Twitch Gift Cards can only be redeemed by users with a Twitch account, so make sure your recipient still spends plenty of time on the streaming site before purchasing. Redeemed cards will appear in the user’s Twitch wallet and can only be redeemed and used in the same currency in which they were purchased.

Physical gift cards are also available from most major retailers, depending on the Twitch website. These will work in the same way as their digital counterparts, but will allow shoppers to exchange a physical gift with their recipient. These cards are mostly customizable and can be purchased for between $15 and $200 for most users. Canadians can boost their physical gift cards up to $500, but most European users will have to stick to digital for now.
