Here are the methods to buy Discord Nitro without using credit cards:

1. Use Google Play Gift Card

Using the Google Play gift card is one of the best and most straightforward ways to buy a Discord Nitro plan, especially if you’re using Discord on your phone.

With this method, you can buy and redeem a Google Play gift card on your Google Play account to get a Discord Nitro pack without using credit cards. So the first step is to buy a Google Play gift card from any digital service-selling shop or website.

Then, you need to redeem the Google Play gift card on your Google Play account to get enough credits to buy a Discord Nitro package. To buy Discord Nitro with Google Play, follow the steps below:

  • Open the Play Store app on your Android device.
  • Go to the menu by clicking on your profile
  • Select Payments & subscriptions.payments-&-subscriptions
  • Choose Redeem code.payment-methods
  • Paste the gift card code in the input field.
  • Tap on Redeem.redeem-code

You will receive credits on your Google Play account after successfully redeeming the gift card. Now, use it to pay for a Nitro pack. Here’s how:

  • Launch the Discord app.
  • Click on the hamburger icon from the top left corner of the screen.
  • Tap on your profile picture located at the bottom right corner of the app.
  • Select Get Nitro and choose your preferred subscription plan & timeline(monthly/yearly).discord-nitro-mobile
  • Hit Purchase.nitro-purchase-mobile

You may also ask your friends to transfer some credits to your G Pay account if you face issues loading credits on your G Pay account. Despite that, If you are already using the G Pay service, you just need some credits on your account, and you are ready to go.

Now, time to integrate your G Pay account with your Google Play. To do this, follow the steps below:

  • Open Google Play apps on your Android device.
