Google launches its loyalty program Google Play Points in the Netherlands. This program allows Play users to save points with every purchase from the app store to purchase other content from the Play Store.
January 21 update: You can subscribe to Google Play Points via the Play Store mobile website. Explanation has been added to the article.
Google Play Points
Google Play Points is a rewards program in which you get points when you buy something from the Play Store. You can compare them with well-known stamps in the supermarket where you can save points or stamps for beautiful cutlery or a new, very sharp knife set for every € 10 shopping mall. With Google Rewards, on the other hand, you can save points for apps and games, but also for movies, TV shows, e-books, audiobooks, magazines, and subscriptions. So you can redeem points for other content in the Play Store. Donating to charity is also an option.
Google Play Points has been active in Japan, South Korea, and the United States for a while and now the point saving system is also coming to the Netherlands. Find out Android Police On the Google Play Help-pagina.
How do Google Play Points work?
When you buy something on the Play Store, you receive points. These points can be used in three ways:
- Convert the points into Play Store credit that you can use to rent a movie or buy an audiobook at a later time, for example
- Use points to receive coupons, in-app purchases (such as characters, coins, or gems in a game), or Google Play credit
- Get more benefits, rewards, and points as you level up
Saving points with Google Play Points can bring more benefits. You start by earning 1 point for every dollar you spend on the Play Store. Then, as a one-time bonus, you earn 3 times the points for the first 7 days. If you collect enough points in a calendar year, you level up 1. This, in turn, results in more points and benefits. The higher your level, the more points you earn. These levels are divided into bronze, silver, gold and platinum. In the chart below you can see what the different levels involve.
