You can get FUT coins by playing FIFA Ultimate Team (short: FUT), squad building challenges (short: SBC), by selling objects or players on the transfer market or by buying FUT coins. The in-game options are of course more time-consuming, which is why a large proportion of FIFA players prefer to buy additional FIFA Coins. However, FIFA's players are divided on this question, with surveys showing that well over half of all FIFA Ultimate Team gamers invest at least the purchase price of the game title in one of the two game currencies, FIFA Coins or FIFA Points.
However, FIFA Points cannot be acquired through play. Buying FIFA Points is the only way to get EA's internal game currency. Here you have three options, on the one hand the in-house FUT shop, on the other hand the console shop of a PS4 or Xbox One or a reliable dealer online or locally. The crucial disadvantage of FIFA Points compared to FIFA Coins is that you cannot use them on the FIFA transfer market. In the end, you can only make a FIFA Pack Opening, i.e. open packs. However, you can then sell the drawn objects on the transfer market and receive FUT coins.
FIFA is about having the best FIFA Ultimate Team. And for that you need FIFA Points or FIFA Coins.
We have already explained the difference between FIFA Points and FIFA Coins in our blog post of February 20, 2020, which you can read here. You can buy FIFA Points directly from EA or in a PS4 or XBOX One Store. Fifa-coins, on the other hand, you have to purchase through third party providers. However, this detour often pays off, because FIFA coins are not only generally significantly cheaper than FIFA Points, but have another advantage: you can use FIFA Coins directly on the transfer market and do not have to do a FUT pack-opening first you never know which player you're going to draw.
You can only buy FUT-20 coins from third-party providers, which is why you should check if the website that offers FIFA Coins is legit. You can find our guide to check FIFA Coin Websites here.
Now that you have found a reputable seller of FIFA coins, for example WhatsGaming.net; you have two options to purchase the coins:
With player auction, you can usually transfer the purchased FIFA Coins to your FIFA Ultimate Team Account independently and all around the clock, regardless of which seller you use, without having to wait for a supplier.
On almost every FIFA Coin Website you have to choose the player you want to use for the transfer. The cost to buy this player for coin transfer will not be reimbursed. This procedure is risky because you have complete responsibility and often cannot know how to transfer FIFA-20 Coins safely. In addition, you will never receive the ordered amount of FIFA Coins, since you have to bear the costs for the player to be transferred.
For us, the player auction is completely different, always safe and absolutely fair. We give you the FIFA players to buy, the starting price and BIN that you need for the amount of coins to be transferred. We not only ensure that the FUT Coins are securely transferred, we also have a unique cashback system. With us, you don't pay a single player that you should use for the FIFA coin transfer. The purchase costs are already included in the transaction amount with us. So you always get the FIFA coin amount that you ordered from us.
2. Comfort Trade
At Comfort Trade, the customer has to do practically nothing other than lie down on the couch and wait until the supplier has transferred the ordered FIFA coins. All you need is your own FIFA Ultimate Team account data and backup codes so that the supplier can log in to your account to transfer the FIFA 20 Coins.
The advantages of Comfort Trade are certainly the low workload and it’s dead easy to use. All you have to do is submit your FIFA account details, nothing more is required of you. However, the Comfort Trade has another advantage over the player auction. You will receive the full order quantity, i.e. The 5% EA Tax does not apply to the Comfort Trade in contrast to the player auction. Incidentally, this is the same for all providers, including WhatsGaming.net. We will reimburse you the purchase costs at the player auction, but not the EA Tax.
However, the disadvantages are obvious. You have to pass on your FIFA account details. In theory, the supplier could steal all of your FIFA coins. So pay attention to where you buy FUT Coins. See if the website has a proper imprint and how professional the website is, for example, and what the social media presence is like. In addition, the website should have WhatsApp customer service and not just an anonymous chat window.
EA has hardly started a new campaign - for example the annual Team of the Year, everyone wants to invest in FUT packs to take advantage of the unique opportunity to draw a TOTY player. What many do not know is that the likelihood of drawing such a FIFA player is very low and it takes a lot of FUT 20 packs to have a chance at all. Just look at the following three scenarios:
- You can buy 12,000 FIFA Points for € 100.
- With the 12,000 FIFA Points you can open 80 of 7.5k packs.
- The 7.5k FUT packs usually have a low packing rate, i.e. good players are rarely drawn.
Scenario (1): Worst case
If we now assume the worst-case and do not draw a good FIFA player at all, then we would have an average of between 1100 and 1300 coins if we discarded every card. In total for the word-case this results in approx. 90,000 - 105,000 coins when purchasing 12,000 FIFA Points.
Scenario (2): Expectable result
As a rule, however, you have players with a total rating of 84+ in the number of packs, so that you should probably be on average around 200,000 - 300,000 FUT coins after you have sold all players from the 80 packs.
Scenario (3): Best case
If you are extremely lucky and draw one of the popular TOTY players or a Ronaldo, you can also get 1,000,000 FIFA Coins or even more out of the 80 packs.
Only in scenario (3) do you have the chance that buying FIFA Points will bring you more FIFA Coins than buying FIFA Coins directly. On average, FIFA coins cost around € 10 per 100k, sometimes even only € 5 at the end of a season. The FIFA Points costs always remain the same.
Shortly after the release, buying FIFA coins cheaply makes more sense than putting your money in FIFA Points. In addition, many FIFA Coin websites have their own discount programs, which EA also does not have. WhatsGaming.net has, for example, the following discounts, which depend on the amount of FIFA coins ordered
- 2% if you bought more than 1,000,000 coins
- 4% if you bought more than 5,000,000 coins
- 6% if you bought more than 10,000,000 coins
- 8% if you bought more than 15,000,000 coins
- 10% if you bought more than 20,000,000 coins
So if you want to buy XBOX FIFA Coins cheaply, you can benefit directly from an order quantity of 1,000,000 FIFA Coins for XBOX of 2% on the total amount. The same goes for PS4 FIFA Coins or the PC.
But enough self-promotion now. Regardless of the fact that we are of course of the opinion that buying FIFA Coins makes more sense for your Ultimate Team than buying FIFA Points, you can also test our example from above yourself. Maybe then you agree with us.
Opening FUT packs is based on luck! The packs give the game players a chance to get some of the best and expensive players in-game at great costs. It may be true in some cases but in others, it is often opposite. The FUT packs often have 6 to 30 items of possible contents. The contents can range from rewarding the game player to a combination of expensive players to include in the team. The packs are categorised in gold, silver, and bronze. They can be bought for virtual coins or real money.
Occasionally, in weekly events that are organised by Electronic Arts, unique packages such as Rare Players Pack and the ultimate packs. They give higher-priced contents in exchange for better packages. The likeliness of the profits is still low and still can be expensive for the average player. A question often asked by gamers on forums and other sources are if the packs are predetermined.
So, are FUT Packs Predetermined?
No, they are not. The game’s description states that the FUT packs are random, it means the players are placed in the packs without any order or rule. But being random doesn't mean the players are included in the packs at the time of purchasing the FUT Packs. Each pack has a chance of being presented to the tournament players. The type of players of the pack can be viewed easily by at the start button before opening the pack, but the players are not visible. According to the odds at stake, getting one or more players with scores above 90, 87, or 75 is probable. These players are displayed in their categories. To gain a better understanding of the packs, consider the odds of the player opening ratings and prices in the purchased packs. The packs bought by FIFA coins should then be analysed and removed. When it comes to evaluating the predetermined packages other questions come with it.
When are FUT Packs Determined?
Another common question that is asked by new and old FIFA players is if the FUT packs are determined at what point is the content decided. As explained by several forums the FUT packs are determined at the time of the opening. When you open the FUT pack, it will be determined what players you get. Saving the packs and opening them in later tournaments can also yield better results. Players have also received Team of the Group Stage (TOTGS) or Team of the Season (TOTS) players from packs they have saved for months.
Will the expensive packs offer better players?
While it is true that getting a more expensive pack will result in a better player, the potential loss is far more than just profits. The packs are available at different price points with the Jumbo Rare Player costing around 100k FIFA coins. Even with expensive packs few players with points above 75, 79 and 80 are reached. There have been some cases of the players getting lucky. At the opening, they might find bright packs, priced icons or special cards of best players at the weekly astronomical events. The rewards and players received in silver and bronze are different than in gold packs and can also vary depending on the coins spent. These packs are offered as prizes and in smaller packages.
When it comes to making coins in FIFA, a few methods and procedures stand out. So does the Bronze Pack Method or BPM. FIFA Investors prefer this method to the other ways in making FUT Coins.
How does Bronze Pack Method Work in FIFA?
The whole idea of BPM (Bronze Pack Method) is to earn FIFA Coins via buying Bronze FUT Packs, opening the packs on the right time, and selling the players inside them with their BIN price or higher at the right time when the profit you make is likely to be higher. The coins you make this way are not very much. But if you keep doing that over a long course of time, you will make a fortune out of FIFA Ultimate Team.
Best Practices in Bronze Pack Opening Method
While opening FUT packs, there are a couple of options that you may encounter and some of the options will make more coins for you if you pay attention. Below, we will share small details that we have learned through experience so you can make more profit in your investment in FIFA.
Tip: WhatsGaming shares knowledge with other gamers via its Blog such as this article about "Bronze Pack Method in FIFA". If you find this blog useful, give us some credit in your social media such as Twitter, Youtube, Instagram, etc. You can share this article by clicking on the social buttons at the bottom.
Which Type of Bronze Pack to Open?
When you are about to buy a Bronze Pack for BPM and making FIFA 21 Coins, you'll have two options:
- Regular FUT Bronze Pack
- Premium FUT Bronze Pack
The regular bronze pack costs 400 FUT Coins and the premium bronze pack is bought with 750 FIFA coins. Now, the question is, which one is better for FIFA Investment?
Both types of bronze packs have the same number of players in them. The only difference is that the premium pack gives you three rare cards instead of one. Now, if you get lucky and win a few bronze players that sell really good, that would be great, but in practice, the only players that sell really good (up to twice the pack's price) are fitness cards, so in general it's recommended to go with the normal bronze pack which costs 400 FIFA Coins.
Other types of bronze packs include FIFA consumables such as:
- Contract Cards
- Fitness Cards
- Healing Cards
- Training Cards
- Club items such as stadiums, balls and kits (non-consumables)
Each of these types of cards can be expected from those bronze packs (regular / premium) and it's good to know what to do with each one of them to get the most out of BPM.
The contract cards will increase the number of matches a player or a manager can play. You may know that each player or manager has a limited number of plays that you can use to play FIFA with. When this number runs out, you will need contract cards to add the number of matches. The contract cards can be applied at any time and their effect will stay on the player until they play and their contract runs out again.
Just keep in mind that loan items cannot be extended by contract cards, and contract cards usually add 8~28 matches depending on the player's card (bronze / silver / gold / rare / non-rare)
Fitness cards are similarly applied to the players for boosting their skills before a match. They last one match only. So, if a player is down his usual numbers before a match, you can apply a fitness card to him so the rating goes up and he performs well. The fitness card will be useless after applying to a player. There is also another type of fitness card that applies to the whole team (23 players including the reserves).
If a player has an injury, fitness cards will not do any good to him. You will need to apply healing cards. Those healing cards reduce the waiting time by 4-5 matches and are two types: the healing card for specific injuries (like foot, arm, etc.) or an overall healing card that heals the injured player no matter what the type of injury is.
What to do with Cards in FIFA Bronze Pack Method
It's crucial to the FUT Pack investors to know when to open the packs and what to do with the cards after they acquire bronze packs.
Here's the deal:
If you get consumables, you apply them to the players.
If the new cards are from the top 5 leagues (Premier League, Bundesliga, Serie A, La Liga, etc.), you should wait until an SBC is active. By waiting till SBC the value of the pack's items will go up and you will make more FIFA Coins. When the SBC is on, sell items or use the players in SBC.
If your cards are from other leagues, if the SBC is on, sell the players on Transfer Market or use them in the Squad Building Challenge. If there is no SBC available, you must check their prices. If it's good, sell them, if not, keep them for now.
What happens if your cards are from top nations?
If the card you opened from the bronze pack is from top nations (Belgium, France, Brazil, England, Uruguay, Croatia, ...), just sell the cards! If it's from Netherlands, you will make a lot of FUT Coins from it!
If the card belongs to other nations, just keep the cards (don't sell them).
How much should I sell the fitness cards?
If the fitness card applies to one player, sell it at 200 FUT Coins. If it's applied to the whole squad, you can sell it 700 to 1200 FIFA Coins (depending on which day of the week it is and if there are active promos on).
How much should I sell bronze pack Training Cards?
The training cards are good for boosting skills of a player. The training card can be applied to only one of the player's attributes or all of them. It doesn't work selectively. And the effect will last one match only. You can't apply more than one training card to one player, ie. it doesn't accumulate.
Now if you have a training card that applies to the player's attributes, you can sell it at 200 coins. Or maybe keep it for your matches. Selling all training cards is tricky as they need a few rounds of bidding sometimes. Other training cards can be quick-sold or kept for the squad.
What to do with Duplicates?
There's a dispute about duplicates. Some people believe it's best to use them in Silver upgrade SBC's. There you will have better chance to sell them or use them in your team. It's recommended to send the duplicate card to TL (Transfer List) and use the one you have in the upgrade SBC. When the card is upgraded, send it back to your club. But the problem is that since it requires lots of efforts, most gamers prefer to sell the duplicates.
But if the duplicate card is from top 5 leagues it's really profitable to sell them (if there is an active SBC). If there is no active SBC then you can keep them waiting on the transfer list. If the cards are from other leagues you can sell or keep in TL and for other leagues you can do a quicksell.
Alternative to Making FIFA Coins
One might find it very difficult or time consuming to make FIFA Coins through Bronze FUT Packs. It is even harder if you want to do it through playing SBC's. Fortunately, you can easily buy FIFA Coins without getting banned by EA if you do it wisely and with a well experienced website like WhatsGaming. With WG you are in good hands and your account will be safe all the time you buy FUT 21 Coins.

This article gives an answer to many questions like: are FIFA Point generators real? Are there free FIFA Coins? Can I get FUT Coins free? How to get free FIFA Points? and so on...
Free FIFA Coins via a Glitch - Reality or Myth?
We come across many videos in Youtube where the uploaded claims they have found a glitch that makes you millions of coins in FIFA. Actually we have tried one particular video. This guy uploaded a video named "FIFA 20 Glitch - How to Get Cruyff for Free". He starts claiming that he's on a new account with 0 games played and 0 wins and 1.1 million FIFA Coins in his account. He claims that he's go the coins through this glitch. He claims that FIFA Coin websites find glitches and that's how they have millions of coins to sell to regular players! This claim is absurd! As an old-timer FIFA Coin company, we declare this claim is false and will let you know later how we do this.
He then asks us to place a bid on a random cheap card and then search for an icon that you can't afford and then add to transfer target. And leave. Then in the target you'll find your bidding and those 4 icons (Cruyff for example). Then the guy suggests that we do this when the servers are "weak" like Sundays!
Then he wants to to select Cruyff cards one by one and go "up down up down" really fast! We tried the method and absolutely nothing happened! We asked some of our geeky gamers and they said this is bulls**t! And here you go! The first claim of free FIFA Coins turns out to be false (if not scam, because at the end of the video, the guy asks us to make contact with his friends to help us to get free coins!).
Free FIFA Points
Another video we assessed was a FIFA player who does streaming in Youtube and he claimed that he has found a way to get Free FIFA Points! The video was very long and we thought maybe its secret is too complicated, but as it went on and on, the guy just kept saying that he knows the secret and he is going to reveal it to us. And at the end of that long video, he said all you have to do is to go to your Microsoft account and redeem your gift credit and use it as FIFA Points in your FIFA 20 or FIFA 21 account.
So, it turns out that this claim is true. There are actually free / gift credits given away by Microsoft that can be converted to FIFA Points and used to buy packs. But the only disadvantage is that it's only for Xbox. Unfortunately it's not for PS4, PS5 or PC.
Free FIFA Coins
There is however a descent way to get free FIFA Coins. WhatsGaming offers Free FIFA Coins on occasion to gamers who are able to record a video to WhatsGaming. Basically, it's a limited-time offer from WhatsGaming only and we require you to make sure the offer still stands beforehand at the time of reading this article; ask our 24/7 live support if we're still giving away free FIFA Coins in return of recording a video. If the offer is still available, here's what we expect from you: Prepare your room for recording, get ready, put on your head-set and open WhatsGaming's website. Try showing the readers how our website works. Talk a bit our our website's advantages and why we believe that WhatsGaming is the best FIFA Coin website. Record your desktop's screen as well as your own face at the corner (doesn't matter which).
And then send your video to us and receive your free FIFA Coins from WhatsGaming. But again, talk to us before you spend time making a video, just to make sure the offer is still there and you would receive the promised FUT Coins.
Free FIFA Coins - Other Alternatives
Since we're discussing "free" methods of gaining FUT Coins, whichever method that doesn't involve buying coins with real money can be counted as free. So, even earning FIFA Coins is counted as a way to get free coins (we know, you hate it) and also trading FIFA Coins to make more and more coins is another way of getting a hold of lots of Free FIFA Coins.
So, let's talk about FIFA trading a bit. Investment in FIFA is all about experience. As a seasoned FIFA player, you would know when to buy cards or FUT Packs and when to open them since the packs are not predetermined. This is called Bronze Pack Method (BPM). Also, you should have a lot of experience in working with Futbin, Futhead and Futwiz, the sites that give you insights about the cards' ratings and value. We have dedicated a series of carefully written blogs about investment in FIFA, called FIFA Ultimate Team Trading. We encourage you read all of those blogs one after another to learn how to make millions of FIFA coins without spending real money and with least of effort.
FIFA Points Generator
There are rumours about FIFA Points generators or even FIFA Coin generators. They say all you have to do is to log in and choose the amount of coins or points you need and click on generate and transfer to your account. That simple! In this article we explained in details why all FIFA Points generators are fake and should be avoided. Actually curiosity sometimes causes some trouble for you and you'd end up with lost coins or banned your account. Some people really want to know where do FIFA Coin seller websites get their millions of FIFA Coins from. As we mentioned earlier, we'll talk a bit about it here.
FIFA Coin websites get their millions of coins with different methods. Some of them have lots of accounts and gaming consoles. And ask their friends to play with those accounts and win and generate FIFA Coins for them. This reply in reddit could make you laugh, but it's a bit true! :)
Additionally, there are mule accounts where other sellers or suppliers share to be sold. The FIFA mule accounts are the accounts that are no longer used by gamers and the FIFA Coins included in them can be transferred to other accounts and that's where all those millions of FUT Coins come from.
Cheap FIFA Coins
On the other hand, you can always benefit from cheap FIFA Coins instead of wasting time looking for free ones. How do cheap coins work?
There are many ways you can buy FIFA Coins cheap. For example, you may get a hold of a discount code. And that would give you 5-10% off to buy coins. The prices may vary from site to site, because the suppliers may ask higher or lower amounts in return of their PS4 FUT Coins.
Moreover, the method you're buying the coins with could save your a few bucks. For example, if you choose to buy PS4 FIFA Coins with Comfort Trade, it would simply bypass EA's 5% tax over coin transactions. And that way you would receive the same amount of coins with cheaper price.
We recommend that you check WhatsGaming's prices everyday to see if special offers or discounts or cheaper prices are available.
