Google Play - How to Get Free Credits and Use Them for Games

Google Play Store is home to a wide range of apps and games that you can pay for using real money. But, before you pay for that app or game with your hard-earned cash, you should know that it's possible – and even easy! – to earn free Google Play credits instead.


Google Play credits can be used to purchase games and items from the Google Play Store and other select third-party stores. In addition, Google Play credits never expire, and you can use them whenever you want. Below are some ways I successfully get Google Play credits for free.

Google Opinion Rewards

Google Opinion Rewards is my go-to way to earn free Google Play credits because it feels like you're doing something right. It is a fun way to help shape Google products and services and, at the same time, earn some free credits.

The Google Opinion Rewards app allows users to complete surveys for Google Play credit. To get started, all I had to do was download the Google Opinion Rewards app and complete the surveys provided. 


Users are randomly selected from the network of participants and will be notified via notification if they qualify. You also receive notifications when new surveys are available so that you don't have to waste your time searching for them.


Swagbucks is an excellent way to earn free Google Play credits by shopping through Swagbucks and making purchases as normal. But shopping is just one of many ways to earn Swagbucks.

Playing games, watching videos, taking online surveys, or just browsing the website are a few other ways to earn Swagbucks. Once you have enough Swagbucks, you can redeem them for Google Play Credits. 

The best part about Swagbucks is that you can earn points by surfing through the website or via its mobile application. 


This option is an excellent option for mobile gamers. As an avid gamer myself, I just loved how the MistPlay app rewards users with gift cards and points for not just downloading the app but also for playing new games.

The more consistent you are with your play, the more bonus points you'll earn. Moreover, if you keep the streak of winning games throughout the day, you can win a massive bonus at the end of the day.

Finally, you can redeem these gift cards and points in several ways, including Google Play credits. Other ways to redeem the points you have earned are through Amazon gift cards, VISA gift cards, and even iTunes cards - all for just playing games

Fetch Rewards

You spend so much money on groceries, so why not put them to work? Fetch Rewards is a free and easy way to earn points and exciting rewards by scanning and uploading your grocery receipts.

Fetch Rewards has more than 250 participating brands from whom you can earn reward points. The more you scan, the faster you can redeem those points for gift cards or other great rewards. 

Redeem your points for various gift cards, including Google Play credits where you can pay for your favorite game. You can also redeem your points for Google Play Store credit in increments of $5, $10, $25 and $50.


FeaturePoints is a fantastic application that encourages you to explore options and try out some new apps. The platform gives you points for downloading each app, using them, and exploring what they are all about.

You can also earn points for taking surveys in your free time, a great way to earn rewards in your spare time. And, if that was not enough, sharing the platform among your friends can get you up to 50% of what they earn. 

To get Google Play credits, you must earn enough points for a $10 or $15 gift card. Once you've earned enough points, you can take your pick from various gift cards, including Google Play. 


GrabPoints is a fun and easy way to earn gift cards and Google Play credits by completing simple online activities.

Similar to the few applications mentioned above and platforms, GrabPoints credits users with gifts and points for watching videos, taking surveys, and downloading apps through the platform. 

A one-stop shopping experience for earning and redeeming loyalty points, GrabPoints is your go-to platform that pays out faster than its competitors by requiring fewer points to get a cash-out. This can be a great way of kickstarting your loyalty journey.


InstaGC, as in Instant Gift Cards, is a site that offers gift cards to users for completing simple tasks online. The reward site boasts the redemption of more than 1.4 million gift cards, which is an achievement in itself.

I love this app because I can earn points from watching videos, shopping online, completing surveys, and even searching websites. It is also worth noting that users are provided with 10 bonus points for just signing up. 

Afterwards, the platform features occasional bonus point opportunities like product trials, listening to music, and visiting websites. Google Play gift cards range from $5 to $25 and can be obtained by earning anywhere from 500 points to 2,500 points.

Gift Card Granny

Don't get stuck buying gift cards when you can earn them through Gift Card Granny. The platform lets users trade in their unused or unwanted gift cards for credits that can be used to buy a gift card of their choice - even ones that aren't sold on their site.

Buying and selling gift cards from Gift Card Granny allows me to earn free points which I can redeem for multiple options, including Google Play credits. Once I’ve earned $5 in cashback shopping, I can grab my free Google Play credits!

On top of that, additional cashback rewards from Gift Card Granny itself are also offered for signing up, subscribing to newsletters, and referring to friends.


AppNana is another excellent way to build up Google Play credits. The app is designed to be simple and hassle-free, so you can focus on earning free credits. Thanks to the app's easy-to-use interface and flexibility, users can earn "nanas" points for downloading apps and games.

The best part about AppNana is that you get 400 points for just logging into your account each day. Apart from that, you earn nanas by playing simple games like Candy Crush or even just downloading the Facebook app. 

In addition, users have a handful of options to redeem their nanas; Google Play Credit is among them.


If you enjoy doing surveys or watching videos, then PrizeRebel is for you. The platform lists nine different survey networks where you can sign up and complete surveys.

There are plenty of options available, and of course, you don't have to join a bunch of platforms to earn credits via survey taking. 

Besides answering surveys, users can also earn points by signing up for offers and watching videos. In addition, you can redeem your points for cash or gift cards at various places, including the Google Play Store.


As a gamer, I enjoy earning Google Play credits with Bananatic, which awards you points (or bananas in this case) for all the things you do while playing games. That includes playing games, writing game reviews, and completing simple in-game quests.

You must download the app or use its desktop version to play new games and win bananas. Once you sign up, you'll get access to a whole world of apps and games, plus many tasks to complete in exchange for rewards.

Most of what you earn in Bananatic will come from playing the game, but you can also earn other ways, including by watching ads or referring friends.

Google Local Guide

Become a Google Local Guide and earn points and perks. You'll improve the Google Maps experience for everyone while earning points once you hit a certain level. One of the many things you get as a perk for improving the Google Maps could be free Google Play credits.

Getting started to becoming a Google Local Guide is very easy. Just head to the Google Maps Local Guide page and click on “Get Started”. Then start rating and reviewing the locations you have visited or upload photos. 

As you move up the level system, you'll receive perks such as early access to Google features and special offers. The higher your level, the more perks you'll have access to redeem.

The Bottom Line

These are some of the best and easy ways to earn Google Play Credits. Earn points like I do by sharing your opinion, shopping through online portals, and buying gift cards at a discount. 

Once you have collected enough points, redeem them for Google Play Credit points and use them to buy your favorite games in Google Play Store.
