Black Desert Online (BDO) is an expansive MMORPG that is full of content and grinding. But there are ways to get rewards for playing the game, including redeeming coupon codes. Here’s a quick guide on how to use these codes and where you do that because for console gamers that appears to be a frequently asked question. The steps are primarily aimed at console gamers who want to redeem their codes in a web browser, so it will really work for all consoles, including both Xbox and PlayStation.
First, you’ll need to find a code from the developer Pearl Abyss (Black Desert Mobile, Crimson Desert, DokeV). The code can be found on various websites such as their official site, their email newsletter, or social media posts. Sometimes you can even get a coupon for Black Desert Online from the Amazon Prime Gaming website if you’re a Prime subscriber. Make sure it is up-to-date and valid before proceeding.
Steps to redeem a Black Desert Online coupon – on the console itself
Once you’ve located a valid code, open Black Desert Online and log in with your account information. Then head over to the main lobby where you’ll see the Coupon Redemption box at the bottom right corner of your screen. Click it and you will be prompted to enter your code. When entering your code, make sure that all letters are uppercase and all numbers are lowercase; otherwise, it won’t work correctly. Once you have entered your coupon code, click “OK” and enjoy your Black Desert Online rewards and goodies.
- To redeem your coupon content, press the start menu button on your controller.
- Then navigate to ‘Menu’ > ‘Adventurer Support’ > ‘Use Coupon’.

Steps to redeem a Black Desert Online coupon – on their website
I get it, sometimes you’re just on a computer, even if you play games on a console, and copy-pasting codes is so much easier than writing up a cryptic code with a controller and an on-screen keyboard. But don’t worry, this can be done and it’s relatively easy if you know how and where that can be done. If you don’t yet have an account on their website, now is a good time to create it and link it with your game account on your console.
