How To Get Your Steam Gift Card Back – Redeeming a Steam code
If you’ve been given a Steam code as a present and you don’t have any games to use it with, then you’re in luck. You can get your Steam gift card (or wallet credit) back from the person who bought it from you. It may seem like a long process, but once you know the details, redeeming your code is easy (and fun!). Read on for more information about getting your Steam code refunded and how to get your money back from wherever it came from.
How to Get Your Steam Gift Card Refunded
If you have a gift card from a friend or family member who got it for you, then you’re looking at the easy part. If you’d rather not tell them that you no longer want the gift, you can easily get your money back. It really is that simple. Some Steam gift cards are linked to your Steam account, while others are tied to your email account. If you have a card linked to your account, you can simply go to “My Account” and select “Redeem Gift.” If you have a card linked to your email account, you can find the gift card information on the back of the card.
Don’t Buy Games or DLC With a Steam Gift Card
So we’ve established that you can easily get your Steam gift card (or wallet credit) back from the person who bought it from you. Now, let’s talk about what you shouldn’t do with it. The first thing to note is that you should never buy games with your gift card. This is because once you’ve used the card, you’re stuck with it. You can’t trade it for something else or use it to buy other games. The only way to get rid of it is by contacting Steam Support, and that’s a hassle you don’t want to deal with. The second thing you shouldn’t do is buy DLC. Again, you’ve essentially just spent your gift card on nothing. This goes the same way as buying games – you can’t get your money back. If you do any of these things, then you’re effectively wasting your gift card. There’s no point redeeming it if you’ve just bought nothing in return.
You can also get a refund for a Steam Wallet Credit
There’s also a chance that you could get your Steam Wallet Credit (or credit) refunded. This might come as a surprise, but it’s not unheard of. In fact, Steam is doing it for a few specific reasons. Let’s look at what you can do if you want to get your money back from Steam. First, you need to contact Steam Support. You’ll need to provide them with your billing information, which will allow them to take the money from your account. Once they’ve done that, you need to let them know that you want a refund for the Steam Wallet Credit. You need to do this as soon as possible – the sooner you let them know, the better. If you want to get your money back, then you need to let Steam know within 14 days of redeeming your gift card. If you miss this deadline, then you’ll have to wait 30 days before you can start the process again. Please be aware that you are not allowed to redeem a gift card for Steam Wallet funds and then have them take the money from your account. If you are discovered to be doing this, then you will be banned from the service.
So there you have it. We’ve gone over how to get your Steam gift card (or wallet credit) back from the person who bought it from you. We’ve also gone over what you shouldn’t do with a gift card and what you can do if you want to get your Steam Wallet Credit refunded. In short, if you have a gift card linked to your Steam account, you can easily redeem it and get your money back. If you have a gift card linked to your email account, then you can sign into your account and redeem it. If you have a Steam Wallet Credit, then you can contact Steam Support to get a refund. It’s a simple process, and you don’t have to do anything else.
