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. – George Willcox Nov 26 '16 at 14:33

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.
