Google Pay Overview
Google has relaunched Google Pay (GPay) after announcing major new features.
The biggest update is a Venmo-like ability to pay people, groups, and businesses. You can also split payment for things like dinner or rent – and even use Google Pay to order food or buy gas, all from within the app.

As for the challenges themselves, a lot of them are pretty easy to do. It resets daily so you can complete the same ones the next day. New challenges will also come and go so it’s not always the same activities:
Think outside the box in completing these challenges! Here are some creative ideas to get stamps quickly:
- Always check the daily challenges: The list of activities will update each day. Complete as many as you can each day, and take advantage of simple actions you can complete multiple times.
- Pay a unique friend: Send $1 to a friend to earn a stamp and have them send $1 back so they will receive a stamp. Repeat with other friends.
- Trade stamps with others: You can see which stamps your friends have in their collection from the Spring Challenge tab in GPay, and can gift duplicate stamps in your collection. You can also send requests for stamps that you haven’t found yet.
With minimal effort, you can grab 11 stamps daily (1 stamp for opening up the app, 5 stamps for sending payment to five friends, 5 stamps for gifting stamps to five friends).
Ninja Note: There are also quizzes that will give you free stamps if you answer the questions correctly. One question asked is what two states don’t observe daylight savings time. The answer is Hawaii and Arizona. You’re welcome 🙂
