Attention all you Fortnite aficionados.

You might be due a refund if you were charged for unwanted Battle Passes, V-Bucks, or a slew of other in-game purchases you didn’t actually authorize.

According to the Federal Trade Commission, Epic Games charged some parents and gamers for in-app purchases that weren’t legally made.

When the users tried to dispute the charges with their credit card companies, Epic Games locked them out of their accounts.

I’d be so ridiculously pissed.

These users haven’t been able to recoup their money — until now.

Epic Games, the company responsible for Fortnite, agreed to pay $245 million to settle FTC allegations related to in-game purchases. 


Who Is Eligible For A Fortnite Refund?

If you are one of the many who this happened to, there just might be a way to get your money back.

Sound too good to be true?

In this case, I’m serious.

Read on to see if any of these scenarios apply to you.

If you were charged for in-game currency that you didn’t actually purchase between January 2017 and September 2022, you might be due a refund.

If your child charged your credit card without your knowledge on the Fortnite app between January 2017 and November 2018, you might be due a refund.

If you complained to your credit card company about unwanted charges, and were locked out of your Fortnite account between January 2017 and September 2022, you might be due a refund.

How Do You Apply For A Refund With Fortnite?

To apply for a refund, you will need a claim number or your Epic account ID — so make sure you have those handy.

You must be at least 18 years old, and live in the U.S. to fill out the refund form.

If you are under 18, and this refund applies to you, have a parent fill out the form.
