Roblox is a virtual sandbox that allows players to create and play custom-made games — think of it like Gary’s Mod or Dreams but with up to 100 players on a server. While the core game is entirely free-to-play, you can purchase costumes, skins, accessories, and other in-game items using Roblox’s virtual currency, Robux. Some items, like Game Passes and Promo Codes, can enhance your experience in Roblox, while others unlock fashion options so you can stand out in a crowd.
Typically you buy Robux at the official store or through gift cards. There are ways you can earn Robux for free though. If you have a knack for game development, fashion, or design, the different methods described in this list should have you on your way to becoming a Roblox Tycoon! Or if you’re great at marketing and promotion, you can make a decent amount of Robux by spreading the word – and your referral links – about new items and interesting Roblox Games you come across.
Warning: Beware of Scammers
According to the Roblox website, there are no official means for obtaining Robux without spending real money. This isn’t entirely true — this article is going to go into some legitimate methods for getting free Robux — but just note that the only way to get free Robux is through the game itself and not third-party platforms.
Never give away your personal information to shady websites and stay away from the “hacks” and “cheats” that promise free Robux; most of these are actually scams or viruses that can mess up your computer. And if you get caught cheating, you can say goodbye to your Roblox account forever.
Take Advantage of the Roblox Affiliate Program
Roblox has an affiliate program that rewards you with free Robux for every new player that you sign up. You also get a small amount of Robux for every purchase made by one of your referrals. If you’re a developer, you get Robux for every new player that signs up from your Roblox Game’s landing page.
Sharing Roblox Links
To start earning Robux for free through the Affiliate Program, simply start sharing Roblox links. A Roblox link is a link that leads to a Roblox Game or any item in the Roblox’s store. Just go to the page for the item that you want to promote then click on one of the share buttons to automatically spread the word on social media.
Keep in mind, you must use one of the generated links from the items Roblox page if you want to claim the Robux reward. The social media share buttons automatically generate a special referral link that identifies you as the referrer. You won’t earn any Robux if you simply copy the item or game’s address from your browser’s address bar.
Create Your Own Roblox Game
The fastest way to earn Robux for free is to create a popular Roblox Game. Easier said than done, we know, but if your game is a hit, you can make way more Robux than you could through the other methods.
Fortunately, Roblox comes with a robust game development tool that allows you to create some surprisingly complex games within Roblox. You don’t even need to know how to code to get started — some of the most popular Roblox Games are obbys (obstacle courses). There’s also a ton of great tutorials on YouTube that will help you get started making games in Roblox. If you want to get into the more advanced stuff, you can also find lots of excellent resources for learning Roblox’s scripting language on the web.
Referrals via Your Game’s Landing Page
As previously explained, Roblox’s affiliate program automatically grants you Robux for every new user that signs up for Roblox via your Game’s landing page. Once your game is done and you’re ready to release it to the world, hit the publish button in Roblox Studio and start sharing your Game’s link on social media. Encourage players to send you feedback so you can further improve your game and keep your fanbase interested and engaged in development.
Sell Game Passes
Your game is now ready to generate Robux for each new player that signs up through your game’s landing page. That’s great! However, if you really want to rake in the big Robux, you can sell Game Passes for your Roblox Game.
Game Passes are special items that provide players with perks and abilities. The perks a player gets by purchasing a Game Pass is entirely up to you, whether it’s super speed, the ability to fly, or a cool new weapon. Promote your Game Pass to your player base and watch the Robux come rolling in!
You’re free to set the price of your Game Passes to whatever you want. Experiment a bit to see how users respond and adjust the benefits and contents of the Game Pass to ensure your players are getting their money’s worth.
Join Roblox Premium
Unlike the other methods on this list, this one requires you to spend a bit of money every month. We know, we promised free Robux, but think of it like this: you’re paying for access to the marketplace, which is where you’ll be generating the free Robux. You also get bonus Robux at the start of each month and some other cool bonuses with membership in the Roblox Builders Club.
Roblox Premium is a subscription-based service that gives players access to special economy features that aren’t available to regular, free players. These economy features include access to the Marketplace where you can buy, sell, and trade items. Premium members receive a monthly Robux stipend and get a bonus 10% to any Robux they purchase directly from the store. If you’re a Roblox Game developer, you also get bigger Robux payouts from sales in your games with Builders Club membership.

Making Money in the Marketplace
The marketplace is the place where you can let your creativity shine. Roblox has a complete clothing customization tool that lets you design your own clothes. With Premium Membership, you can also sell your creations on the Roblox marketplace for Robux. Of course, you’ll need an eye for fashion and an understanding of what people like, but if your designs are great, you’ll be making Robux hand over fist. This method can be just as lucrative as designing a hit Roblox game.
