Has anyone got a free Fortnite code from Smyths they won't use? I have a very upset son who scratched his code too much!

Hi There, has anyone got a Fortnite code which were given out over the weekend to customers at Smyths when they bought a game? My son is sobbing as he scratched the code off too hard and now cant redeem.
I'd so appreciate if someone has one they don't need.

Thanks in advance.

You get a pickaxe to use in the game.... which is very precious im reliably informed by my distraught child!
This happened to my friend too. She said she wasn’t even scratching it hard. If you have no joy here then pop into Smyths again if you can and I’m sure they’ll be happy to replace it, they did for my friend and she asked them to scratch it for her to make sure it was ok.

It’s pretty useless. Even if you get him the code within a week he will be wanting more money to buy more useless tat in the game.

glad to hear it. Too many parents throw money at kids for fortnite junk.

Good advice. But if you can’t make a special trip perhaps ring customer services to explain the situation as it appears your son isn’t the only one who has had difficulty scratching the code, they may be able to tell you the code over the phone.
Take it back and they will swap it, well known problem with the cards. I doubt anyone will give a code away as they sell for £20 on ebay.
