If you have an Android phone or tablet, you are probably very familiar with the Google Play store — it’s where you can browse, purchase and install countless apps, games, movies, and other content. And like many retailers, Google has a rewards program that lets you earn credit for every purchase you make. It’s free and easy to sign up for Google Play Points, and depending upon how many points you accrue, you can qualify for higher levels that help you earn points faster. 
Play Points is Google’s rewards program that earns you points for every dollar you spend in the Google Play store. The points are assigned to your Google account, not a specific device, so all your points are pooled no matter which Android device you use (as long as you use the same Google account). 
You don’t earn Google Play Points automatically; you need to sign up for the free program. After doing that, you are automatically assigned to the lowest rewards tier, called Bronze, where you earn one point for each dollar you spend on purchases on anything in the Google Play store, including apps, games, movies, ebooks, and subscriptions. During special promotional events, you can earn up to four points per dollar, depending upon the rules of the promo. 
Google has divided the program into four tiers:
Bronze
Silver
Gold 
Platinum
Points expire one year after your last purchase, so if you have a lot of points, you should use them before they expire (or make a new purchase to extend their life). In addition, once you earn a new tier status, you keep it for the remainder of the current and the following calendar year, after which your current points determine your new tier. 
You can sign up for Google Play Points from your Android device or from the Google Play website.

Quick tip: If an option is gray and can’t be tapped, you don’t have enough Play Points to afford that item.
