How to earn stamps

Earn stamps when you perform different actions with the new Google Pay app like pay friends, redeem offers, and more.

There are random opportunities to earn stamps and guaranteed ways to collect each of the 5 stamps through different actions that vary daily. In the Google Pay app, check the "How to collect today" section of the Spring Challenge page for action details and restrictions.

There may be other opportunities to collect stamps. Check the promotion page for the latest updates.

Important: From April 27th, 2021 to May 3, 2021 (or while supplies last) you can get $15 and a Fox stamp for referring a friend. Your friend will get $5 and a random stamp too!

Your friend must be new to Google Pay and must make a qualified payment by either:

  • Sending money to a friend they haven't paid before or
  • Making a contactless payment in-store

Learn how Google Pay referrals work.  See the Google Pay app for full terms and conditions.


  • Tap to pay: Contactless payments must be made with an NFC-enabled Android device.
  • Gifts: Before you can collect a reward stamp, friends must claim the stamps you gifted them.
    • You can only gift a stamp if you have more than one of that stamp.
    • You can recall unclaimed stamps at any time.
  • Referrals: You can only collect stamps for referrals where you’re also eligible for a referral reward. Referrals must be new to Google Pay, use your referral invite, and complete a qualifying transaction during this promotion.
  • Send money: To collect a reward stamp, the transaction must be complete. The time for money to be sent or received depends on the payment method used.
  • Redeem cashback offers: To redeem cashback offers at participating merchants, you must have at least one card enrolled in the program.
    • Merchant linked offers and related Spring Stamps may take up to a few days to process. To contact support, wait a few days from the date of the transaction. 
    • Enroll your eligible cards.
  • Activate insights on an account: Only one new bank account or credit card added with Plaid qualifies.

Additional details

  • You can earn a max of one $30 USD reward for collecting spring stamps, but you can continue collecting, gifting, and requesting stamps after you complete your own set.
  • Actions with daily collecting limits don’t carry over to the next day. For example, if you collected a stamp from paying 3 new friends or businesses today, your 4th payment won’t count towards your next day’s limit.
  • All unique limits are reset daily.
