How to Get Snapchat Points


Let’s talk about Snapchat points! Do you want to find out how to get more of them? Or maybe you just now found out they were a thing. Either way, it’s time to learn about a fun, new way to win at social media.

Did you know that the number displayed next your username is your Snapchat score? That’s the tally of your Snapchat points! You get them for sending and receiving snaps–they’re basically a way to rank how Snapchatty you are.

Since I’ve only been using Snapchat for a few months, I’m still learning to be a pro with it, and my score is pretty low. As I learn, I’m sharing my growing love of Snapchat with you, and the tip I figure out as I go.Snapchat Points

Let’s take a look at the ways you can gather more Snapchat points, just by using the app itself.

Sharing is Caring

Your Snapchat score goes up when you send or receive a snap. The more you share on your story page or with other Snapchat friends and followers, the more Snapchat points you’ll earn. Send picture messages back and forth, send videos, or just takes silly selfies to experiment with the fun filters on Snapchat and post them to your story page. Admittedly, I do this a lot—it’s just fun. Whenever your snaps get opened, you’ll receive points as well.

Interact With Celebrities

You can add celebrities and get more Snapchat points just by having a little fun that way. By adding celebrity Snapchat accounts, 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. But when they do, it raises your Snapchat score and add points to your Snapchat account.

Here are twenty celebrity Snapchat accounts you should add to your following:

Chris Pratt, actor: ChrisPrattSnap
Christina Milian, musician: cmilianofficial
Gwen Stefani, musician: itsgwenstefani
David Guetta, musician: davidguettaoff
Meghan Trainor, musicia: mtrainor22
Ariana Grande, musicia: moonlightbae
Jared Leto, actor: jaredleto
Jessica Alba, actor: jessicamalba
Kate Hudson, actor: khudsnaps
Norman Reedus, actor: bigbaldheadchat
Lady Gaga, musician: ladygaga
Reese Witherspoon, actor: snapsbyreese
John Mayer, musician: johnthekangaroo
Chelsea Handler, comedian: chelseahandler
Macklemore, musician: macklemore
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, actor and pro wrestler: therock
Ruby Rose, model: rubyrose
KT Tunstall, musician: realkttunstall
Ellen Degeneres, comedian: Ellen
NeYo, musician: neyo1979

By adding celebrities to the people you follow on Snapchat, you not only get an inside look at their lives, but you could catch a glimpse behind the scenes as well. This list includes some of the celebrities I enjoy following on Snapchat, and I hope you will, too.


How do I see how my points are broken down? Well, for Chat points, here’s how:

  • To see your Chat points, swipe left to the page that says “Chat,” then tap on the word “Chat.”                        Tap Chat
  • Now you’ll see two numbers displayed. The number on the left is how many snaps you’ve sent. The number on the right is how many snaps you’ve received in Chat.                                                                                                        Chat Points

But the number next to my username in Snapchat is much higher than these two numbers together. Where do the other points come from? Posting items to your story and viewing other Snappers’ stories both also add to your Snapchat score—a.k.a. points.

Snapchat Point Hack

If you understand how Snapchat points work, you can game the system to maximize your points. Not that we recommend gaming the system–Snapchat may decide to change the system if enough people are exploiting it, and they might not appreciate people who inflated their scores. One day, your artificially sky-high score might fall back down to earth, but in the mean time, if you’ve just got to get that score up, and you’re willing to take that risk, here’s a trick I’ve figured out…

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. You’d think at some point they might try to close this loophole, but for now it works—and you might as well take advantage while you can.

I got snapchat a little over a week ago and I LOVE it so much, but i can’t seem to find any of my friends. I know that it might seem easy to find people but the truth is that I feel like it is harder to find people then it is on instagram. I love snapchat but the one problem is that it doesn’t show me the people i am looking for, do you have any suggestions for me?

You can simply add them by contacts or you can ask them for their username and add by username 🙂
