For most countries around the world, Google Play Points is structured into four tiers. Platinum tier Play Points users are now offered a material benefit in the form of discounts on the Google Store.
Update 5/7: Since our post yesterday, some Gold level members have offered to get this benefit, while another Gold level person said they received an offer for a free Chromecast with Google TV.
Thanks to the commentators and Michael
Surprise! As a special reward for Play Points Platinum, enjoy $40 off any of these devices on the Google Store through June 6:
Original 5/6: In an email to Platinum members in the US this afternoon, the Play Points program is offering $40 off three products:
- Pixel Buds A-series: $99 -> $59
- Fitbit Charge 5: $149.95 -> $109.95
- Nest Hub (2nd gen): $99.99 -> $59.99
Logistically, this is handled via a promotional code in the email that expires June 6, 2022 at 11:59 p.m. PT. This discount is applied at checkout after entry.
Existing Platinum benefits include earning 1.4 points for every dollar spent, in-game point events, movie and book multipliers, weekly Platinum prizes, and premium support. You must earn more than 3,000 points to reach this level. The Platinum level is preceded by Gold, Silver and Bronze, while South Korea also offers a Diamond level.
All in all, these hardware discounts are one of the best perks of being part of Play Points and purchasing content through Play Movies & TV – soon to be Google TV – or Play Books. This is also an advantage of using Google Play billing.
