I’m going to buy a steam card for a friend how does she use it she’s in another state

Hello, thank you for using Howly.
You can purchase a digital Steam card. You can purchase it directly from Steam here:


Or you can buy digital cards online, for example, at Amazon. After purchasing this card you can send it to your friend directly or u can send him a redemption code.
Do you have any additional questions I can help you with?

What do I do for me to send it, how can I send it so she can use it
What is a a digital card

It's a digital form of a Steam Gift Card
It's the same, but you receive it on your email or Steam account (like a digital ticket or something like that)
To send this card to your friend, please follow these steps:

  1. Visit this link: https://store.steampowered.com/digitalgiftcards/selectgiftcard
  2. Select the amount
  3. Choose a Friend
  4. Complete the Purchase
    To send it, you must be logged in to your Steam account

  1. Visit this link, please, and log in to your account: https://store.steampowered.com. You'll see the login button in the upper right corner.
  2. Add your friend to your friends list on your Steam account. After he will accept your invitation, go to step 3.
  3. Visit this link: https://store.steampowered.com/digitalgiftcards/selectgiftcard
  4. Select the amount of money on this gift card
  5. Choose your Friend
  6. Complete the Purchase

An alternative way is to buy a physical Steam gift card you can do it in your local stores. I can tell you the stores that sell gift cards near you if you tell me your ZIP code.
Or you can buy digital cards online, for example, at Amazon.

Can I just prechase it and send it to her how does she use it

If this will be a physical Steam gift card, she will see a redemption code. And this code she will use to redeem the card

Customer Replay
