How To Get Snapchat Points


If we’re being honest, Snapchat’s probably our favorite social network. There’s something that’s so much fun about sending your friends disposable photos and videos from throughout your day. You don’t have to worry as much about how your hair looks, or whether or not the photo you post will come back to haunt you in a future job hunt. Everything feels so incredibly loose and casual, it’s no wonder that other networks like Facebook are taking directly from some of the innovations and ideas Snapchat’s created over time.

There are some pretty strange quirks within Snapchat, though. Some of the more advanced features are often unexplained or hidden, like Snapchat’s new map interface that displays where your friends are at any moment. 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 or how they function.

Your Snapchat score increases for generally using the app, but if you want to know just how to maximize your score potential, we’ve got some advice for you. Being dedicated to Snapchat to increase your score will take some work, but with some tips and tricks, you can boost your score in no time.

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

The Basics of Snapchat Scores

If you’re a new Snapchat user, the app can seem a bit overwhelming at times. There are panels, swiping gestures, secret menus, chat icons, and so much more that can make it difficult to jump right into the app with a complete knowledge of how everything works. For example, even accessing your Snapchat score can be a bit confusing if you’re new to the app. If you’re having trouble figuring out how Snapchat scores work, we’ve got you covered. Let’s take a look at how to see your score, plus some general, proven tips for how scores work.

Accessing Your Score

Start by opening Snapchat on your iPhone or Android device. The app should load straight into the camera viewfinder interface. From this screen, 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. This menu also has access to your Snapchat trophies, an achievement-like structure that makes Snapchat a bit of a game, as well as shortcuts to your settings menu and to your Bitmoji account if you’re using one. You’ll also see your Friends list here, as well as the option to view new Friend requests or people to add.

Below your Snapcode, you’ll find your username along with a corresponding number. Depending on how new you are to Snapchat, 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 has never fully explained how their points system works, so it can often be a bit difficult to keep up exactly how these points are scored. Here’s a simple breakdown based on what we do know regarding Snapchat points.

  • Sending and receiving snaps typically awards you a single point, though some snaps do tend to award more for some unknown reason.
  • 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.
  • Posting a story gains you a point, but viewing stories does not.
  • Just like with streaks, chats don’t gain you any points. You’ll have to send a photo or video clip to do that.

As we mentioned above, these are just what we know definitively nets you those coveted points. There are some weird outliers where points increase in large amounts without much understanding why. That said, we can use the guidelines above easily to determine exactly how to score some bonus points. Let’s take a look at how to game the points system in Snapchat

Interact With Celebrities

You can add celebrities and get more Snapchat points by having a little fun that way. 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 twenty celebrity Snapchat accounts you should add to your following:

Ariana Grande, musician: moonlightbae
Chelsea Handler, comedian: chelseahandler
Chris Pratt, actor: ChrisPrattSnap
Christina Milian, musician: cmilianofficial
David Guetta, musician: davidguettaoff
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, actor and pro wrestler: therock
Ellen Degeneres, comedian: Ellen
Gwen Stefani, musician: itsgwenstefani
Jared Leto, actor: jaredleto
Jessica Alba, actor: jessicamalba
Jimmy Fallon, comedian: fallontonight
John Mayer, musician: johnthekangaroo
Kate Hudson, actor: khudsnaps
KT Tunstall, musician: realkttunstall
Lady Gaga, musician: ladygaga
Macklemore, musician: mackandryan
Meghan Trainor, musician: mtrainor22
NE-YO, musician: NEYO1979
Reese Witherspoon, actor: snapsbyreese
Ruby Rose, model: rubyrose
Taylor Swift, musician: taylorswift

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 we enjoy following on Snapchat, and we think you will too.

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 inflating their scores. One day, your artificially sky-high score might fall back down to earth, but in the meantime, if you’ve just gotta 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.
