  1. How do I give a digital game as a gift but prevent it being seen until Christmas day?


    I would love to buy NBA20 for my son for Christmas and take advantage of the offers out right now. Can I buy a game as a digital game now and give the code to him on Christmas day?

    I imagine this is common question but I haven't been able to find it online.

    Thanks for any help.

    You technically cant hide it . Itwill go straight to the email on the account . You can gift it christmas eve night. Or go on amazon buy a digital code then you can email the code whenever hidden . Hope this helps

    Suggestion: Allow retailers to sell digital codes

    Also allows people to give digital copies for gifts. I would prefer digital, but there is currently no way for my wife to buy that for me for Christmas/Birthday.

    gift card

    Hey there JeanPilot,

    Sorry for the confusion gifting your friend this code.

    As stated by StuartATrueRed, now that the code has been redeemed, there is exists no means for you to transfer that redeemed currency to your friends account.

    That being said, if you do want to get your friend something, you can try to gift that specific digital item directly to your friend.

    there should be gift cards now in place of the points cards they used to have. not a perfect solution, but something you could recommend to your wife.
