Google Huat Pals introduces two new ways to earn rewards amidst house visits

Most of us have come to anticipate the rewards that Google’s Huat Pals bring when it comes to Lunar New Year. Running for the third consecutive year, users can collect new in-game goodies and more fun ways to earn abundant rewards via Google Pay.

In conjunction with the resumption of house visits, the company now integrates the social factor – through new in-app games such as Huat Scanner, alongside more enticing rewards from its slew of merchants.

Collect Lunar New Year goodies and be rewarded

Amidst your house visits, keep a lookout for goodies that comes with eligible transactions above S$5 – including the following:

  • Tap to pay
  • Pay via FavePay QR
  • Pay via PayNow QR or UEN
  • Purchase movie tickets via the Google Pay app
  • Splitting an expense with at least two people, and receiving a minimum of $3 from each of them
  • Gifting goodies to friends and receive one bonus goodie per unique friend you gift

Having up to 5 redemptions a day, users will receive an opportunity to win one of three attractive prizes:

  • A scratch card worth up to $88.88
  • A Pixel 7 Pro worth $1,299
  • A pair of Pixel Buds Pro worth $299

With each transaction, players will also join Tuffy to visit 28 Huat Pals – which can be accessed via the Google Pay homescreen. Users can also send in-app messages to share the different Huat Pals that they have collected.

Tapping on image recognition technology, the newly-introduced Huat Scanner allows users to scan festive items they come across during house visits – such as red packets, oranges, pineapples, coffee cups and paper lanterns. In exchange, participants will receive a goodie, or partner vouchers from local merchants such as Flash Coffee and Guardian.

Huat Riddles offers participants another chance to win more rewards from brands like Fairprice, Klook and Sephora.
