How To Get Snapchat Points

There’s something that’s so much fun about sending your friends disposable photos and videos from throughout your day. Snapchat is fun and getting Snapchat Points is not that difficult. It can be difficult to figure out just what everything within Snapchat means, especially when the app doesn’t do a great job detailing certain statistics.

Snapchat points, for example, have been around since the app launched nearly six years ago, but lots of users still don’t know what the points mean. The Snapchat has its own unique scoring system, and whether you just want to increase your own score or you’re looking to beat a friend’s, everyone loves earning more points. But exactly how do you get more Snapchat points? You’ll find it in the succeeding post!

Accessing Your Score

Launch Snapchat, swipe down on your display to reveal Snapchat’s own standard menu screen. This should be complete with your Snapcode, a quick and easy way to share your information with other users. Below your Snapcode, you’ll find your username along with a corresponding number. This number could be as low as a couple hundred points or as high as to be in the hundreds of thousands of points. This is your Snapchat score, displaying the full number of points you’ve made over a certain amount of time.

Snapchat Points

Sending and receiving snaps typically awards you a single point, though some snaps do tend to award more for some unknown reason. While there are some proven methods to upping your score, much of it is still a guessing game.

1. Sending And Receiving Snaps

Sending snaps to multiple people at once don’t award more points—just because you send the same snap to thirty people doesn’t net you thirty points. There are some weird outliers where points increase in large amounts without much understanding why. Posting stories give you one point. Viewing stories give you zero point and same is the case with chatting unless you send a snap or video.

The first number is how many snaps I’ve sent (two) and the second number is how many I’ve received (four). And that explains why I have six points.

2. Interact With Celebrities

Adding celebrity Snapchat accounts means you can also send them snaps and messages. Whether your text snaps get read or your photo snaps get seen depends on the celebrity in question–some will open them and some won’t bother. But when they do look, it raises your Snapchat score and add points to your Snapchat account.

Here are few celebrity Snapchat accounts you should follow;

Chelsea Handler, comedian: chelseahandler
Chris Pratt, actor: ChrisPrattSnap
Dwayne Johnson, actor: therock
Ellen Degeneres, comedian: Ellen
Gwen Stefani, musician: itsgwenstefani
Jared Leto, actor: jaredleto
Jessica Alba, actor: jessicamalba
Kate Hudson, actor: khudsnaps
KT Tunstall, musician: realkttunstall
Lady Gaga, musician: ladygaga
Macklemore, musician: mackandryan
Meghan Trainor, musician: mtrainor22

Snapchat Point Hack

You get Snapchat points based on the number of people you send to, not the number of people who actually read your snaps. If you send a snap out to 150 people, and only one of them opens it, you’ll still get 150 points. Send your snap to more people, along with at least one person who will open it, and you can get your score pretty high, pretty fast.

So, if you want more points, start snapping away. The more you send and receive, the higher your score will be. Do you have any other ideas to increase snap score? Do share!
