Exchanging Google Gift Cards for Roku PrePaids

Thu Dec 06, 2018 8:45 am

Hi, I have a few website sources that offer sources to earn free gift cards. My question is that can I redeem them directly or exchange them for Roku Pre-Paid Cards? If yes, then where?

Where have you seen a Roku prepaid card? I did not know there was such a thing.

I will totally not address the unlikelihood of exchanging unrelated gift cards.

I am bit confused myself. It says that you can add Prepaid Gift-Cards, so I assumed that they might be Roku Prepaid Cards...

You’re talking about where it says 
Pre-paid gift cards can be used as a payment method as long as the card brand is an accepted card type, for example MasterCard or Visa.

That’s talking about pre-paid Visa or MasterCard. Like GreenDot or something of that sort you can find at Walmart, Walgreens, and such.

Oh! By any chance, if I get Walmart Gift Cards, Can I exchange them for some discounts at Roku ? Really low on budget even in the Festival Season  :cry:

I don't think that there are any sources offering free gift cards. If so then you can't redeem them for Roku prepaids as DBdukes suggested.

Not Walmart gift cards. Prepaid VISA and Mastercard cards You can buy those at Walmart and a bunch of other places. They have VISA or Mastercard logos on them. They also sell American Express gift cards, but Roku doesn't accept those. Roku only accepts VISA and Mastercard.

You can't use anything other than VISA or Mastercard to purchase content at Roku. You can't exchange anything for anything at Roku. If Walmart will do it, great. But just like you can't go into Applebee's and use a Walmart gift card, you can't can't use anything other than VISA or Mastercard (credit cards, debit cards, pre-paid cards) to buy stuff through Roku.

By the way, you do realize that the Roku purchases are for subscriptions and fee-based apps, right? Exactly what are you trying to purchase?

Oh, I got it now. Actually, I was wondering if I could avail the Roku Streaming Services by using any of the gift cards that I got. Since I can't, I'd just have to wait for Christmas or New Year Sales. 

Also, I was using this website where they had mentioned that you can do so. I don't think they were telling the truth.


 Nevermind, thanks for the help.
