Eyeing a new accessory? Saving up for a new weapon? Thinking of getting the game pass for your favorite game? Looking at another hat? Hair style? Shirt? Need Robux – if possible, free Robux, maybe – to buy a ton of things you’ve been thinking of buying for months already at the Avatar shop?
Whatever reason you may have, there seems to be so many new things to buy, to look at, to want… but never enough Robux to afford all – or, let’s be honest, any – of them. So perhaps that’s why you’re trying your luck on looking for a way to get free Robux here.
We all have probably spent some amount of money to buy Robux on Roblox—while the developers of the game have been generous enough to make Roblox free and to make access for most of the content in the platform free, there are just so many things we can buy to make our characters better in Roblox. At some point, for sure, we have all asked ourselves the same question: Is there any way for me to get free Robux?
Our wants in the game may be getting too much for us to finance, after all. And it’s not like we didn’t pay any money at all, right? We’re just trying to make things more accessible for us, because we don’t have that much disposable income to spend on a game.
So here we are, trying to look for ways to get Robux for free.
But is there really such a thing as free Robux? I guess we’ll find out.
Is having free Robux possible?
Sorry to burst your bubble, but the reality is that there really is no way to get free Robux. And, if someone did find a way to circumvent Roblox’s whole algorithm to trick it into believing that he’s paying even when he actually isn’t… well, that’s illegal, and it’s not something you should even think of doing.
As you already know, the only way to get Robux is through buying it directly from the shop, or through getting a premium membership subscription for your Roblox account. That’s it, and nothing more.
However, between these two options, there’s definitely a better option depending on what kind of player you are.
First, if you’re just a casual player, the better way will definitely be to just purchase Robux when the need arises. Robux is available in the shops for browser, mobile, and Xbox for different amounts:
- $4.99 for 400 Robux
- $9.99 for 800 Robux
- $19.99 for 1,700 Robux
As you know, Roblox is a free game you can enjoy and explore so deeply even without the need to spend. But for a few occasional purchases that you think you really won’t be happy without, occasionally buying Robux at small amounts won’t be so bad.
However, if you can see yourself allotting much of your time playing Roblox in the foreseeable future – say, in around a year or so from now – then getting a Premium subscription might be the better option for you.
There are three tiers of membership where you can actually get Robux – the default free tier, as you know, does not give us free Robux – and it’s up to you to decide which one you’ll subscribe to.
Here are the most recent prices for the monthly subscriptions, and how much Robux you get for each, as stated in the Roblox website:
- $4.99 for 450 Robux a month
- $9.99 for 1,000 Robux a month
- $19.99 for 2,200 Robux a month
For Premium subscribers, the above amounts are billed every month. However, a user has the option to cancel anytime, so you won’t have to worry about getting charged even after you’ve quit the game.
An added perk you can get for subscribing monthly, though, is the capability to resell old items. This means you can let go of items you’ve previously purchased as you progress further in the game, and get money from them. Users who subscribe to Premium can also trade items with other Premium members, which can also be a good cash investment in the long run. Selling items they created themselves also yields higher income for Premium users than for regular ones.
Again, what tier you’ll choose solely depends already to how much you are willing to spend in a month or year for Roblox, how invested you are in the game, and how likely you are to spend on in-game items.
For example, there is really no need for you to spend even the smallest amount of $4.99 per month for Robux if you don’t even plan on spending buying anything from the shop. Or, if you do want to buy items, but don’t have a lot of extra money to spend on a game, then why will you buy a subscription worth $19.99, right?
The decision is entirely up to you.
If those prices look too costly, or even wasteful, for you, then you’ve probably considered – or are still considering – scouring the internet for websites that give you free Robux. They offer very tempting options that easily appeal to people desperate to get Robux for a lesser price.
However, these websites are entirely sham, and it would be best for you not to consider them, at all!
Let’s take a look at what these websites claim to do, and how they actually work.
Websites that give you free Robux
There are different kinds of websites that claim to give you free Robux. They spin their content in many different ways, yet actually do the same thing—they claim to be some sort of “Robux generator” who can circumvent the Roblox code, package their code as an actual purchase, and send money to your account.
Sounds neat, right? No wonder people try fall trap to their promises.
Here’s a step by step guide to deciphering the common “Free Robux generator” site:
- They ask you to enter your username
What they do now is they ask you to enter your username and the platform you use.
Some of them will even try to build credibility by claiming that they are simply asking for your username, but not your password. That means that, they are, in no way, trying to get the credentials to your account.
This is meant to build your trust in them, since you get the feeling that, “Oh they’re not asking for sensitive information anyway, so it should be okay to try.” However, a scam is a scam, and they’re still going to waste your time.
Honestly, it’s astounding how these scammers have gotten increasingly creative through years of trying to prey on unsuspecting players who want to earn Robux for free.
There have been instances before – though these sites are increasingly less common nowadays – when sites would ask for your log-in credentials. They claim that they would need your username and password so that they can use the generator in your actual account, and send you Robux from there.
If you aren’t familiar with scams like this, you may be hoodwinked by their claims and actually give away your log-in information. This one of the worse-case scenarios, since sites like this phish your information. You will get locked out from your account as a result, and will lose your progress in the game and all your hard work.
It’s even worse if you’ve had payment information linked to that account—they may then use your credit card to buy themselves items using Robux, and send it to their actual accounts afterwards.
Whatever strategy they use, it starts the same—they just ask for “harmless” information.
- They will display a message about connecting to your account
After giving your username and platform of choice, these sites will display some sort of message that the transaction is starting, and that they have miraculously connected to your account, and will be sending you your desired amount of Robux.
Sometimes, to make it more convincing, they even display messages saying they initially failed to connect to your account, and then try a few times, before they display the success message.
Then, they’ll start “initiating the transfer” of Robux—though there really is no transfer taking place. This is the part where they will say there has been an error, or that they need to make sure you are not a bot, and move on to the third phase of their scam.
- They ask you to do a survey or answer a quiz
After fooling you into believing that they were actually able to connect to your account, they will now create an “excuse” for not having sent the Robux to your account yet.
Their usual excuse would usually be either of the following: 1) there has been an error in connecting to your account, or 2) they have to confirm you aren’t a bot.
Whichever excuse they use, their next step would be the same—they’ll ask you to answer a quiz or survey (rather than just using CAPTCHA, really).
This is where they actually make money—they’ll make you answer a lot of surveys, and they’re paid a share for each survey a site user answers. For people who are not familiar with how these things work, they’ll be answering survey after survey after survey, reaching a whole lot of numbers before they stop. They might keep thinking that the transaction will be successful after the next survey they do, so they keep trying—and these sites all prey on the people who have this kind of mindset.
The Robux really will never come, though.
At the end of it all, your time and efforts are wasted, the sites make money, and you end up with no additional Robux in your account.
The sad thing is, this is honestly the best scenario you can have from engaging with fake sites that promise free Robux—the best is that you walk away with wasted time and effort, and maybe a wee bit disappointed. But at least you still have your account, and there isn’t malware or some sort of virus in your computer.
As mentioned above, there are sites that actually phish for your account information. For sites like this, once you’ve entered your username and password, you are likely to lose access to your account forever.
Some sites even ask you to download a program which will generate the Robux for you. They usually say these are companion programs that you have to turn on while using Roblox so that you can get the currency. However, these are just all malware—the moment you download and run them, you’ll just get virus in your machine and face dire consequences.
So, as you can see, there’s never really a good outcome from engaging in these kinds of sites. When you see them, the best course of action is always to run away.
How to Actually Get Free Robux
So now, the question is, is there really any way for someone to get free Robux?
The answer, technically, is no.
However, there is a way where you just have to work hard once, and then wait for the Robux to come.
This method requires patience, talent, and dedication, though… because this method is all about creating your own game in Roblox, and waiting for users to purchase from the in-game store so you can get your cut of the Robux they use.
As you can see, this is really the harder way—games can still take days, weeks, even months to develop and perfect, and still some time to maintain. This isn’t really a “free” way, still, of earning Robux, but it does give you passive income in the game.
Most people who create games for Roblox are never usually after the in-game currency they will get, though! These people are usually just passionate in their craft, hoping to do something so that people can have fun with what they have developed and created.
Still, earning Robux – aside from real cash, if your game does get popular! – is indeed one of the perks of being a game creator in Roblox.
You see, people spend Robux to buy game-specific items or to buy game passes. Game passes, specifically, are free to create! When users buy theses game passes via Robux, the credit they spent goes directly to the game creator’s account, which they can access after three days. Of course, a small transaction free goes to Roblox for facilitating the transaction, but you still get most of the Robux for this exchange!
The same goes for special items in games. As creator, you definitely get Robux off people’s purchases of the items you created for your game.
This is a perfectly legal and legitimate way to earn Robux—in the first place, Roblox was intended to be a creation platform, so it makes sense that its creators are compensated in a myriad of ways!
So, as a takeaway, you know that there really is no easy way to earn money off Roblox without trying to do something. The game is already free for access, and there are tons of free things in each game, still! If you can’t buy Robux for now, then it would be best to simply start with the free (legitimate!) things in Roblox… and wait ‘til you don’t have to try to look for ways to get free Robux anymore.
