Roblox, one of the most popular game-creation platforms, is the host of quite a few games. Developers and players can use Robux, the in-game currency, to make payments in order to upgrade and improve the avatar cosmetics. Robux has a fluctuating price that is based on different market forces like supply and demand and it costs real money.

Although prices fluctuate, ThePricer will do its best to update them periodically.

So as we said in our introduction, Roblox is a great platform for both developers and players and offers a big range of ever-growing games and gaming experiences. Although most of the features offered by the platform are free, you can still buy in-game currency, called Robux, to get some extra perks.

Robux was launched on 15th May 2007 and became the official in-game currency of Roblox. Up until then, Roblox points were used. When it was launched, Robux was just one of the official in-game currencies. Tix was also used, although this one was removed on 14th April 2016. Since then, Roblox used Robux as its only currency, and any paid item or service is sold using Robux as the only way of paying for an exchange.

As you’ll spend real-world money on Robux, you should also be careful how you make the exchange. There are a lot of scammers going for your money, a lot of them offering free Robux generators. Although Roblox game creators and even Microsoft Rewards will offer free Robux from time to time, most of the time you will have to spend real money to buy Robux when you need it. Robux can, and should only be purchased from the Robux company.

How Much Does Robux Cost?

You can buy Robux using one of the several ways available. Robux can be purchased from the official Roblox website. Just go to the Roblox upgrades page where you have to sign into your account, and you can make a purchase for whatever credit you want and need. Roblox also has an app available for both iOS and Android where you can buy Robux.

Direct Purchase

Roblox didn’t offer the possibility of purchasing Robux through its website right from the start. This was added on 26th Sept 2008. It took roughly four more years for the ability to buy Robux to be added on the app as well, this becoming reality on 11th Dec 2012. When you go for a first purchase from your account, you will be able to buy Robux for the following prices:

Amount Price
400 Robux $4.99
800 Robux $9.99
1,700 Robux $19.99

If this amount of Robux isn’t enough for what you’re planning to buy, you can also access value packs on the app, Xbox One, and browser page of PC or MacOS, from the cart area. These packs are:

Amount Price
4,500 Robux $49.99
10,000 Robux $99.99

How to Get Free Robux

Yes, Roblox offers the possibility for you to get free Robux. Although scammers aggressively advertise free Robux all over the internet, only a handful of methods are legit and still work. Below you will find the real ways in which you can get free Robux:

Creator Giveaways

It’s not uncommon for game developers to promote their games with the help of free Robux promotions through social media apps like Twitter, TikTok, and Youtube or even their official blog posts. There are also influencers and content creators that will reward their followers with free Robux from time to time.

These giveaways will provide engagement and additional followers. However, the bad news for these types of promotions is that not every participant will be awarded these tokens. Giveaways are still a valid option for receiving real Robux for free, as long as the influencer releasing them is reliable. They also take little to no effort.

Giveaways are used as a great way for people to increase their interaction with Roblox communities. This will keep you in touch with any new promotions and discounts posted inside the communities.

Microsoft Rewards

It isn’t unusual for Microsoft to give away rewards and promotions for different games and communities. Between Dec 29th, 2020, and March 16th, 2021, they had a promotion that enabled you to receive 100 free Robux just for signing up for Microsoft Rewards from a new Microsoft account.

With the help of Microsoft Rewards, you can earn points each time you shop on the Microsoft store or search for something on Bing. Participating in different quizzes and challenges will also help you earn points. Although Microsoft Rewards were only available in the US for quite some time, it has started to be rolled out all around the world.

Just one day after the promotion was launched, the first Microsoft Rewards offer was withdrawn, and only a day after that, Microsoft had no more Robux redeem codes to offer. The great popularity and the promotion and the high number of new signups was something really unexpected.
