Smart gives you Giga Points for buying load and using the GigaLife App for payments.

These can be exchanged for telco products and limited number of gadgets.

If you want to know how to redeem points in Smart, check out the remainder of this article.

What are Smart Points?

Smart’s Rewards points for subscribers are called GigaPoints, which can easily be viewed through the Smart GigaLife app.

Unlike other Rewards programs with an arbitrary amount of points required for redemption, each point earned in Smart is equivalent to P1.

If you are redeeming a promo worth P99, then you need to use exactly 99 points.

List of Smart Rewards

As of this time of writing, there are only 10 items displayed on the rewards catalog of GigaLife:

  • Amazon Echo Dot (Sold Out)
  • Google Home Mini (Sold Out)
  • Giga Video 50
  • Giga Video 99
  • Giga Stories 50
  • Giga Stories 99
  • Giga Games-1 50
  • All Data 50
  • Giga Power 75
  • Giga Power+ 99

How to redeem points in Smart

These are the steps on how to redeem points in Smart:

Step 1: Open the Smart GigaLife app on your smartphone.

Step 2: Click on the giftbox icon beside your points.

Step 3: Check the promo that you want under Most Popular or All Items.

Step 4: Tap on the promo product and click Redeem with the corresponding points.

You will now see the notification that you have successfully redeemed a promo from the catalog, as well as its validity period.


How do I earn Smart Rewards points?

Unlike other telco rewards programs, Smart has both generous and less than generous offerings.

If you buy a regular load or a promo within the GigaLife app, you can earn about one point for every P99 load.

That goes up to about 5 points for every P100 load, as the GigaPoints to be earned is now equivalent to five percent.

However, you can only earn one point for every P100 purchase through loading partners such as Shopee, Lazada, and Smart Online Store.

If you are a postpaid subscriber, pay using the GigaLife app to get 1 point for every P100 spend.

Take advantage as well of limited promos offered by Smart throughout the year.

Also, you can earn an additional 10 points for every Smart number that you can link to the GigaLife app.

Do I need to enroll to the Smart Rewards Program?

No, you do not need to enroll because all Smart subscribers are automatically included in the program.

However, you need to connect your mobile number to the Smart GigaLife app in order to redeem and even earn more points.

Where can I download the Smart GigaLife app?

You can have the GigaLife app on your smartphone by getting it on the Google Play Store or downloading it from the Apple App Store.

Do I need internet connection to use the GigaLife app?

Yes, you need to be connected to mobile data or WiFi in order to view your account details in the Smart GigaLife app.

What type of Smart subscribers can earn GigaPoints?

In order to be eligible to earn, send, receive, or redeem points, you need to be a Smart Prepaid, Smart Bro, TNT, or PLDT Home Wifi prepaid subscriber.

Postpaid options include Smart Signature, Smart Postpaid, and Smart Bro Postpaid.

Is there a cap on the points I can earn?

Yes, you can only earn a maximum of 500 points per month.

It is best to regularly spend if you are aiming to accumulate points for really good offers such as the Amazon Echo Dot and Google Home Mini that needs 1,500 points in case Smart makes similar offers again.

Is there a minimum amount of points for redemption?

It actually depends on the offers of Smart in its Rewards catalog.

Currently, the lowest number of points you need to redeem a product is 50.

However, you can try to manually redeem through SMS in order to avail cheaper promos.

What are the promos that I can redeem through SMS?

There is no guarantee that you can still redeem points through SMS as Smart may have phased out this option in favor of the Smart GigaLife app.

It is best to just download the app and redeem rewards items from there.

Can I check my points via USSD?

Yes, you can inquire on your points by dialing *123# even if you are just using a basic phone.

Just go to Balance, then GigaPoints by replying with the corresponding number.

Your number of points will then be shown on the screen.

What are GigaDays?

These are the four days from the 19th to the 22nd of the month where you can have more points and also redeem products with fewer points needed.

Can I share my GigaPoints to others?

Yes, you can share your points to other GigaLife app users by going to the GigaPoints section and viewing the Breakdown.

From there, you can use Pasa Points to send points to your own linked accounts or even friends and family.

You just need to have P1 mobile load which will be spent per transaction.

Does Smart GigaPoints expire?

Yes, Smart GigaPoints will not last more than 1 year if left unredeemed.

If you earn them today, they can expire in as short as 6 months up to 9 months.

This is because of the Expiry Policy, which states that there are four quarters in a year where you can earn your Smart Rewards points.

From the last day of that quarter, your points are set to expire after 6 months.

So if you earned your GigaPoints on January 01, 2022, those points are earned in the first quarter of the year ending in March 31, 2022.

They will expire six months after, which is on September 30, 2022.


Smart gives Rewards points to its loyal subscribers, and even more through the GigaLife app.

Download the app now just in case you haven’t in order to start accumulating points for redemption.
