So I have MC Java edition but I also want to cross-play with my friend on xbox.

I know that you can redeem a free code for MC Windows 10 edition but when I try to redeem it it won't give me a code it'll just redirect me to the store where I can buy MC Windows 10 edition.

Help? As far as I know I'm doing it correctly...

  • could you share screenshots of you problem? I have problems recreating the behaviour you are experiencing

    When did you buy the java edition? If I remember correctly you can only get the windows 10 edition for free if your account had been created before a certain year. I'm not quite sure though.

    Oh yeah correct. The date was : October 19th, 2018 if you bought Java Edition after that, you will not get the free code help.mojang.com/customer/en/portal/articles/…

  • You cannot get MCPE for free anymore, that offer has expired. Also, it's a completely different game, you have to be aware of that. Oct 25 '19 at 11:40

You have to had bought the game before a certain date (Oct. 19th 2018) for the code.
