Recently I started a free trial for Minecraft Realms on the PC edition, but now I've noticed that I have only 6 days left, so I'd like to pay for it. However, I've seen Minecraft pre-paid cards in the store, and I was wondering if I could cash them out to get a longer subscription for realms?

I've not had much look searching on the internet, and so any help would be appreciated.

I'd just like to tell you that when asking a question, try to refrain from using capital letters to emphasize a point, also any potential answerers would know that you're using the PC edition of Minecraft due to the tags that you applied to the question.

No. Prepaid cards are only for buying Minecraft, in the form of the game.

Mojang's page for pre-paid cards says that:

Minecraft for PC/Mac can be bought via pre-paid cards found in physical stores.

This means that pre-paid cards can be redeemed for buying the actual game. If you want to buy Realms, just go to the Realms page for PC/Mac and choose a plan.


There are prepaid Realms cards. Just buy one and follow the dots.
