    Can Microsoft gift card be used to buy Minecraft: Java Edition?

    can Microsoft Gift Cards be used to purchase Premium Minecraft Java Account?

    Yea, the mod is right.

    The Java version and the Windows 10 version are two whole different games. Microsoft/Windows/Xbox prepaid gift cards can only work through digital store fronts (or in some cases the actual brick and mortar store) listed on those cards. There should be a
    list somewhere in the FAQs that tell you where all you can use said gift card monies.

    You cannot use that money to buy things from an outside realm, in this case the Java version is considered an outside realm because its technically the "original" version of Minecraft nowadays and isn't the Bedrock edition available through all things Microsoft
    and beyond.

    Minecraft Gift Card

    Hello, MJStrange!

    Did you redeem this gift card on Minecraft.net? Because, if it's him, it's probably from Minecraft Java Edition (PC only).

    does clicking the "Buy to own" button on Minecraft in the Microsoft store gives you a full Java Edition minecraft account?

    Hi Riya,

    Yes - once you purchase Minecraft: Java edition, you’ll receive a game account.

    Keep in mind though, Minecraft: Java edition can’t be purchased through the Microsoft store (Microsoft.com or Xbox console) and so you won’t be able to use a Microsoft/Xbox gift card to purchase the game (both physical and digital gift card codes). Microsoft gift cards will also only work, and apply to purchases on the Microsoft store (can’t be redeemed elsewhere). Only Minecraft for Windows 10, Minecraft for Xbox (bedrock editions), and Minecraft Dungeons can be purchased through the Microsoft store.

    Refer to:

    https://help.minecraft.net/hc/en-us/articles/360035131351-Where-Can-I-Buy-Minecraft-Java-Edition-

    Where it states -

    Where Can I Buy Minecraft: Java Edition? - Minecraft for PC/Mac/Linux:

    You can buy Minecraft Java Edition from Minecraft.net for $26.95 USD or local currency equivalent. You can learn more about pricing here. This is a one time purchase. You can buy an account for yourself, or buy a code to give away. Gift codes may not be available in all areas.

    This edition isn’t to be confused with the Minecraft for Windows 10 version from the Microsoft store.

    Note: Worlds/saves from the Java PC/Mac version of Minecraft are not compatible with the Minecraft on Windows 10. Free trial on Windows 10 includes 90 minutes of gameplay. 145.9 MB download.

    If the game gives you a “install now” option on the Microsoft store then you don’t necessarily need to purchase it, as it’s ready to install and free to play on your account. It usually means you either own the game through a subscription, such as Game Pass or Xbox Live Gold, or you have a free game trial (or demo). If you select the “install now” option, you should be able to remotely install the game to any compatible devices on your account.

    There are different Minecraft versions for different devices, which all have variations in terms of cross-play, DLC’s and add-ons, other features etc. Your game saves and progress aren’t connected across devices for all versions too. This is explained with the different versions, and which devices they’re compatible with here:

    If you have further questions,

    contact Mojang Support (submit a ticket with as much information as possible and they’ll reply by email).

    You can also reach out to them on Twitter @MojangSupport

    Hope this helps! :)
