Google Play Store credits can be used for games, movies, TV shows, and even books. Here’s how to get credits for free!
Well, first of all, this is a guide for everyone, even if you’re sitting there saying, “but I’m on an iPhone, why do I need Google Play Store credit?” I hate Android and the people who use it! The Google Play Store offers a wide selection of movies, shows, and books, which can be enjoyed on any platform. And you don’t need an Android mobile to use this method for free on Google Play Store.
Don’t expect to make thousands of dollars a month doing this, but you can earn enough Google Play Store credit to rent movies and buy games every month. It interests you ? Of course you do, everyone loves free stuff. So let’s get to the method!
Google Play Store: how to get free credits
Google offers an app for iPhone and Android called “Google Opinion Rewards” that pays for every survey you complete, and don’t worry, the surveys are short. In fact, they take around 20 seconds on average to complete, so we’re talking in terms of seconds, not even minutes here.
Surveys can theoretically be about anything, but as someone who’s been doing them for a while now, I can tell you that the vast majority will be about your spending habits. A typical example I received today was how much I would be willing to spend on certain gaming accessories.
Here’s how to install and register:
- Follow one of these download links for your respective platform:
- Once the app is installed, open it and sign in to a Google account
- You will then be asked for your zip code, age and gender
- You will then be asked to enable location services for the app (you don’t have to, but we advise you to activate location services, so that you can receive more surveys*)
- Accept the terms and conditions, and you’re done!
* Many surveys are for stores and deals in your area, so you get more to complete if you allow the app to know your location.
How much can you earn from surveys?
Google claims you can earn up to $1 per survey, but I’ve never seen such a high reward, it’s closer to $0.10 per survey. Although we’re not complaining, they are really quick to complete, sometimes as short as three questions.
If you want to earn even more free Google Play credit, you can always sign up on behalf of your loved ones (if they let you).
How will you be paid to take surveys?
If you’re on Android, your credit will automatically transfer to the Google Play Store, but if you’re on iPhone, you’ll be paid directly to your hard currency PayPal. So it’s oddly better for iPhone users, despite being a Google app. However, if you’re on an iPhone, you have to wait until you’ve won $2 before you can pay. So you can’t just take a survey and immediately transfer a few pennies to your PayPal account, but it won’t take long to earn $2.
How often will you receive surveys?
You’ll receive surveys about once a week on average, but you could receive a lot more if you’re in one of the “golden demographics” or a lot less if you’re in a demographic that typically has fewer purchasing power. Basically, if you’re a teenager (and you admit it on the app), you probably won’t get as many surveys because fewer companies expect you to buy their products. Conversely, if you are a middle-aged wealthy parent, there are many more companies interested in trying to sell you something.
Why aren’t you receiving any surveys?
You might not have allowed the app to know your location, which would exclude you from any local surveys, or you might be in a demographic with less purchasing power. As we mentioned above, some groups, like the under 18s, don’t have as much influence in the market, and companies care a lot less about their consumption habits.
It is part of the terms and conditions of the application that you give the correct information about yourself, so this next part of the guide is unnecessary. But according to the forums, the best chance of receiving the most surveys is to sign up as a 45-55 year old woman and then answer the surveys in such a way as to appear wealthy and educated. This is apparently the demographic group that is most valuable to the consumer market. But hey, none of you would go against the TOS, it’s just interesting to know.
