Info about Kreds


What are kreds?
Kreds are virtual coins or money that are spent in getting different thing in games.

In which games can i spend kreds?
In these ones

  • GCL: It offers new skills that will make your life much easier and will let you get all challenge amulets.
  • BTD4: It offers you a really fast way and some more levels
  • Tyrant: It offers new and better cards, you can also get them by lot of luck and time.
  • Everybody Edits: You can buy blocks, faces and worlds instead wasting days/weeks getting them. Also it lets you have a Kongregate Pro package of 6 bricks, 6 faces and 1 saved world.
  • TDP4: It offers you new weapons, more money or artifacts. You can also get them with time and effort
  • Dream World: You can buy gems (highly prices) to dozens of priviledges. The rate of winning gems is 6 each 5 consecutive days you login.

More info about free kreds FAQ


Kreds is real money, so there is no way that admins give them for poor reasons like leveling up. Giving free kreds for leveling up or completing certain achievements would be fool since there is no effort in it, and i dont think kongregate wants to give free money.

  • Is there any way to give Kreds to a user who has not uploaded a game?
    Nope. Just in the tip jar of a game or by giving your gamestop PIN, if you have one.
  • So, when do you receive kreds?
    If you are a developer you have lot of high chances of receiving kreds, depending on your quality. People might donate kreds to you.
  • Wait??? So if i am not of US i cannot purchase kreds?

Yes you can.
1. If you do any trip to US you might buy a gamestop card (like i did) or something similar
2. The next countries might use their mobiles or phones to get some kreds:

  • NEVER try to receive them in an ilegal way, or you might get banned. You want an example?, here it is:

If you hacked or get those kreds ilegally, you could receive the following message:
You have been permanently banned due to irregularities with your recent kreds
purchase. If you feel this is in error or you need more information, please
contact us at kreds@kongregate.com.

Extra info about surveys

  • How does surveys work?

They really depend in which country you live. When you register in tapjoy (the survey site) you will require to fill a starting survey, from which will depend if there are available. Note, if you dont live in US or UK, you have really less possibilities of a possible offer, and videos wont be offered, neither.

  • Videos

There are also videos of the day, but from personal experience their are not offered commonly out of USA.

  • How do they know from which country i am?

You IP tells them which is your zone. Note, there are softwares to change your ip, but i wont give links. Google it, but i doubt about how legal it is.


Buying kreds


When you purchase kreds, you will get messages like this

Option 1: (mobile purchase with gamestop power up)
Hello osanseviero!
This email is to confirm the purchase of XX kreds from Kongregate. Kreds are used to make purchases in certain games, buy cards for Kongai, and leave tips for game developers on Kongregate.com. Your mobile phone has been charged XX US dollars and your kreds are now available for use. In addition, you’ve scored 27 GameStop PowerUp Rewards Points, which will be credited to your PowerUp Rewards account at http://www.poweruprewards.com/ within the next 1-2 days. If you have any questions regarding this purchase please contact support@kongregate.com. Thanks for your purchase!

Option 2: (Gamestop card)
Hello osanseviero!
This email is to confirm the purchase of XX kreds from Kongregate. Kreds are used to make purchases in certain games, buy cards for Kongai, and leave tips for game developers on Kongregate.com. *Your GameStop Card has been charged XX+ and your kreds are now available for use. If you have any questions regarding this purchase please contact support@kongregate.com. Thanks! Kongregate

Yeah, there are more options, but it is like that.

  • Gamestop Card: You can just buy it in a gamestop store or at some 7eleven. Find a store near you NOTE: Ultimate gamestop card and gamestop card are not the same, but they are really similar.
  • Mobile purchase: Yoy know that
  • Credit Card
  • Pay pal: Bank online, it isnt that easy since for activating one you need to upload 20 dolars

Checking your kred status
Once you get kreds, you will get a new option for cheking you kreds status or account.
LINK: http://www.kongregate.com/accounts/yourusername/kred_account




And when you click there you go to your kred account. I could put all of it here, but for personal reasons i dont want.
The info goes like this
My Kreds Transaction History :
date (column 1), item (column 2), game (etc), description,quantity, kreds

Free Kreds


Follow this:

1. Go to home, get kreds

2. Go to the electric red “fund your account” (click)

3. A new window just opened! Some better explanation there about what kreds are. Also sorry for image quality of next.
Click in earn free kreds.
For original image click in this Link
http://i54.tinypic.com/f40gfo.jpg
(image removed because bad quality)

4.We only care about free section and survey of the day. I am from mexico, so my ip is no USA ip. Then it is in spanish. (gratis is free in spanish). For more info about ip check on Extra info about surveys in first post

5. Just follow the steps and complete the offers




Extra info about Gamestop Gift Card

Note: This also works for the ultimate card, just select the ultimate game card instead gamestop gift card

They are US only and have a maximum of 20 dollars, that between two take away and offers can be at a maximum of 275 kreds (nice offers :)). They can be bought at all gamestop stores.

Pruchase kreds in: Fund your account —>More options: Gamestop gift card…

There are the instructions. Put account number, PIN, City, State. (Where you bought them). Image:




Getting Kreds with a mobile Phone

1. Do the first two steps like getting free kreds. Then click this

2. Select your country in the large list

3. Select the offer you want

4. Enter your phone number

5. Now you will receive a phone call, which you need to answer and done, kreds are yours. Be happy!




Getting Kreds with credit card

I think this is a real uncommon way of buying kreds, but i will put a guide. Start: This method is 100% secure, so the unique thing you need to worry about is to see if you are in kongregate and not in a fake site trying to steal the money (this wont happen, at least that you have some kind of virus). Remember that you need to confirm and agree Privacy Policy and Terms of Sale

1. Like getting free kreds, go to fund your account

2. Click on credit card

3. Select the offer you want:

4. Now put your info, remember to check that you are in kongregate.

5. Confirm the action

After this i am not really sure how it works, but it is probably really simple




Some few last notes about the other ways:

  • Paysafe is really really simple. Just follow the normal steps, and it is as one of options in “OTHER OPTIONS” square. You just need to put your country and your PIN, no sign up required
  • Paypal is a little longer, because it redirects you to a new page. For having a paypal account you need to activate it (which needs you to use 20 dolars to be transacted into virtual money). Then you need to wait to it to be processed. This is a simple way.

“Please note that kreds purchased through the ‘Pay by check’ option can take up to five days to post to your account. To ensure your account gets funded immediately, Kongregate recommends using your credit card or the ‘Instant Transfer’ option”


Conclusion: After writing this post ive seen ive wasted too much time and money in my life. period.

Thanks, i will continue working on this, but yeah, the main reason was for so many posts about the topic

Also please tell me of any typos in a PM.

Wow! Good job. It’s very well made and in depth! Unfortunately unless you bump this every single day, and even then. This will just be lost with all the FAQs out there and people will continue to make threads. Good job though!

This should be stickied, definitely.

I have a question. Maybe not an FA question, but a question about Kreds: is there any way to give Kreds to a user who has not uploaded a game?

Nope, i will add this in the faqs. You could give another person the PIN of any gamestop card. But if someone could give kreds away to anyone, hacking/stealing accounts would increase a lot. Also, new version: Some more info, better formating in posts and other things/images

Nicely done, osan!

Let’s just hope someone would check this thread before making a new one.

I won’t sticky this because, well, we don’t want this forum to turn into something like the Ceasary one. However, I will add this to ES’s already sticky’d Tutorials thread, hun.

New edit, more organized, info on paypal and credit cards and better formating.

Why would it be needed? Especially here on Kongregate…. There’s no real need to change your I.P unless you are engaging in fraudulent activity that’s illegal.

Well, on the internet in general, it’s a must for Singapore. It’s also handy for being able to browse the internet without censorship (No, this isn’t illegal, uncensored internet viewing is actually one of the few things in the world the UN considers a human RIGHT1), and being able to test out and/or view sites from another country to check for compatibility.

1: Censorship may only be applied to Class A blacklisted material, of which the only current entry on the list is child pornography. “Child-friendly” censorship (Think Windows Vista-esque with all the “ARE YOU SURE”s) can be applied to anything though.

Hey, thanks for making this, I admire your patience. This has helped what we call noobs asking for free kreds :D

Great job! It’s really in-depth and helpful. Good that it is seen in the first page (in the Tutorials thread, saw SicMirx’s post) so it’s always accessible.


Even I didn’t know some of those things in the thread. It means it is very wide thread. Definitely a topic to “Watch”. :)

It doesn’t look like it has the Kreds tag, so I’m going to go out on a limb and say no.
