Epic Games is known for giving away free games and other goodies from time to time. If you’re a fan of their platform, you may be wondering how to get the $10 free gift card they’re currently offering. In this article, we’ll walk you through the steps to claim your reward.

Step 1: Create an Epic Games account

If you don’t already have an account on the Epic Games website, this is the first step. Go to their homepage and click on “Sign In” in the top right corner.

From there, select “Sign Up” and fill in your details. Once you’ve created an account, log in and proceed to the next step.

Step 2: Enable Two-Factor Authentication

In order to be eligible for the $10 gift card promotion, you must have Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) enabled on your Epic Games account. This is an additional layer of security that requires you to enter a code sent via email or text message in addition to your password when logging in.

To enable 2FA, go to your Account Settings and click on “Password & Security”. From there, follow the prompts to set up 2FA using either email or an authenticator app.

Step 3: Claim Your Free Game

Before you can claim your gift card, you must first claim a free game from the Epic Games Store. Navigate to their “Free Games” section and select one of the available titles. Once selected, click on “Get” and follow the prompts to complete your purchase (Note: even though it’s free, you still need to “buy” it).

Step 4: Receive Your Gift Card

After claiming your free game, Epic Games will send an email with instructions on how to redeem your $10 gift card. The email should arrive within a few days of claiming your game, so be patient.

Step 5: Redeem Your Gift Card

Once you receive the email, follow the instructions to redeem your gift card. This will likely involve entering a code on the Epic Games Store or another platform. Once redeemed, the $10 will be added to your account balance and can be used toward any purchase on the Epic Games Store.


Getting a free $10 gift card from Epic Games is easy if you follow these steps. Remember to create an account, enable Two-Factor Authentication, claim a free game, and wait for your gift card email. With this extra cash in your account balance, you’ll have even more reason to explore all that the Epic Games Store has to offer!
