How to Redeem Your Buff Points (+ What’s up for Grabs)
Updated July 25, 2023.
So you already know that Buff helps you earn while you play, but let's get into the specifics of what Buff Points can be used for. The most asked questions across the Buff community are what the actual redeemable options are and how to redeem points for the goodies, and we're here to provide answers.
What You Can Redeem Your Buff Points For
There is a variety of options to choose from when it comes to redeeming your Buff Points in the Marketplace, so figure out what suits you best.
Buff offers Amazon gift cards, which can be used to buy just about anything nowadays, or you can dig deeper into your love for gaming with gift cards from PlayStation or Xbox.
Another redeemable option from the Buff Marketplace is Steam CD Keys, meaning you can get a full game directly by entering the key into your Steam account.
Although you are not able to pick just any game as the games are predetermined by Buff, the dollar value from this redeemable option is usually one of the best.
There are also opportunities for limited and rare skins. These are some of the rarer rewards, so definitely be on the lookout and check the app frequently if you want to get your hands on one of these. If they aren't currently available, there are ways to get free skins in Valorant too.
You can also obtain in-game currency with Buff Points. One reward that is readily available is Riot Point cards. The RP can be used for any of Riot Games' titles, such as League of Legends and Valorant.
The gaming hardware selection on the Buff Marketplace is exceptional, with loads of Razer stuff, the leading brand in gaming peripherals, allowing you to obtain a new gaming keyboard, mouse, or headset without spending a single dollar IRL.
Obviously, you are going to need to save up your points for these bad boys, as they are typically the highest in Buff Point costs.
