Google has started rolling out a new program on the Play Store. Customers can use their hard-earned Play Points for purchases on the Google Play Store.
The company’s new program will allow customers to convert these Play Points into discounts that can be calculated on their next purchase from the Google Store. This includes devices like the Pixel 6 and some of the best Google Assistant speakers.

There will be four levels available for those wishing to receive a discount: $10, $50, $100 and $200 off. Each of these available discounts has its own Play Points limit. $10 has a limit of 500 points, while a $200 deduction will require 10,000 points.
According to the terms of the program, users cannot claim and use two discounts in one purchase. Another important point to note is that Google apparently only gives you one of each discount. This means that you must hold off claiming one of these discounts until a specific item in the Google Store catches your eye. Claiming the discount will provide you with an ‘Expires after 30 days’ code.
The purpose of Play Points when it was introduced in 2019 was to reward those who spend on the Play Store. Google is constantly improving how its users interact with the Play Store using its points system.
