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...

    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.
