Discord Nitro is an optional membership tier that removes in-game ads, enables higher quality video streaming, and provides other cosmetic improvements. Members also benefit from an extended maximum message length in games and chats.
One of the best things about Nitro is that you can share it with another user as a gift. Gifting Nitro can be a great way to thank them for their support or even introduce them to Discord.
But if you offered Nitro to someone, how do you know if they claimed the offer? Or, if you are a beneficiary, how do you know if the gift someone sent you is still valid?
In this article, we'll show you how to check if a Nitro gift has been claimed in a few simple steps.
Is there a way to see who claimed your Nitro gift?
If you're looking to give someone Nitro's gift, it may not always be clear if they claimed the gift or not. This is because, by default, Discord does not send a notification when the gift has been accepted.
Although some users leave a thank you note in your private messages after accepting the gift, some may forget to reply to you. This can keep you in the dark and wondering if they received the giveaway link in the first place.
If you want to know if your friend has accepted their Discord Nitro gift, follow these steps:
- Log in to your account and navigate to the User Settings section.
- Select "Gift Inventory" from the menu on the left side of your screen.
If your friend hasn't accepted the gift yet, you'll see it here. You can even choose to revoke the offer and give it to someone else.
How to Check if a Nitro Gift Was Claimed as a Recipient
Nitro gift links are only valid for 48 hours. Additionally, a user may send the gift link to multiple users simultaneously, either by accident or on purpose. When this happens, whoever reacts the fastest wins.
This means that it is imperative to accept the gift as soon as possible.
If you received a gift link but are not sure if it was claimed, simply open the link in a browser. A gift that has already been claimed will display an error "This gift has already been claimed".
Remember, if you're already running Discord on a browser, you don't need to open the giveaway link to check its status. If it's already been claimed, you'll see a grayed out "Claim" button in the bottom left corner.
Benefits of Discord Nitro
Nitro is a monthly subscription service that gives users access to many different features on Discord. Here are the main ones:
An assortment of cool animated emoji
One of the great things about Discord Nitro is that you can use your favorite emoji anywhere on the platform. This means you can react to what people say with an emoji instead of typing long replies.
If you have the Nitro subscription, you get an animated tag on your profile and a custom badge to show you're using Discord Nitro. Plus, you get a cool Nitro badge to display on the servers and channels you chat on.
With Nitro you get 30% off server boosts. This boost is a great opportunity to spruce up your servers, earn a badge that identifies you as a booster, and even get special server roles.
You can download 100MB of content instead of the 10MB available to non-Nitro users, opening up new ways to express yourself. You can even upload a video when you want to demonstrate something instead of putting everything into text.
With Nitro, you can join up to 200 servers, allowing you to interact with more players and improve your skills while discovering new things.
What if I offered Nitro to the wrong user?
Once a user has accepted a Nitro Gift, you cannot redeem it. Discord admins can't help you "withdraw" a gift. Also, you cannot be refunded. You can only receive a refund if the Nitro Gift has not yet been claimed.
Can I revoke a Nitro gift after sending the link?
The answer is yes. To see gifts that can be revoked, open the User Settings section and navigate to "Gift Inventory".
If you're not sure if your Discord Nitro gift has been claimed, there's an easy way to check. Simply open the User Settings tab of your account and scroll down until you see "Gift Inventory". This will give you a list of all gifts that have not yet been claimed.
As a recipient, claimed gift links will not open at all. You will simply receive a message indicating that the gift has already been claimed.
