How to gift Discord Nitro on Mobile & Desktop (Guide)

Discord offers a variety of features, from screen-sharing and voice-calls to roles and custom emotes. One of Discord’s newer features is Nitro gifts.

Nitro is a subscription service on Discord, which allows access to custom emotes from all servers.

You also get access to Nitro stickers, animated avatars, and a custom number tag. Nitro also offers better bandwidth and file-sharing optimisation. You can pay £8.99 per month for Nitro, or £89.99 per year.

Nitro gifts are when you gift Nitro subscriptions to other Discord users. These come in the form of redeemable Nitro codes. You can pay for a one-time Nitro subscription, and gift it to someone else. The subscription won’t automatically renew itself. You can gift both monthly and yearly Nitro subscriptions.

Gifting a Nitro subscription can help someone else experience the perks of the membership without having to pay for it. Perhaps they can’t afford it, or wish to experience it before making the purchase. If you can afford to gift a Nitro membership, try helping a friend out with a Nitro Gift.

How to gift Discord Nitro

You can gift Nitro subscriptions on both Desktop and Mobile. Be careful when gifting Nitro subscriptions.

After you’ve gifted a Nitro membership to someone else, you can’t take it back once they’ve claimed it.

If you’re wary about the process, try starting with a small Nitro gift by gifting a monthly subscription as opposed to a yearly one. A monthly Nitro subscription is much cheaper than a yearly subscription.

You have the option to opt for Nitro or gift Nitro Classic instead – Classic may be the better option for those that don’t need extensive features. We’ll first cover how to gift Nitro on Desktop.

For Desktop

First of all, open the Discord application. Or, you can access Discord through their website. Log into your Discord account, and click on the gear icon.

This should be located beside your username in the lower left. This will open up Discord’s user settings. In the left side tab, look under the section for payment settings. Select the ‘Discord Nitro’ option to open up the Nitro settings.


Select the ‘gift’ option. This will cause another window to pop up. Select the type of membership you wish to gift.

If the Nitro gift has previously been claimed, the option for ‘accept’ should be greyed out. The gift can only be claimed once for both monthly and yearly subscriptions.
