Have you recently purchased an HTC device such as the 10, Bolt or U? Remember all of those points you received for purchasing it and anything else from HTC? Well, all of those points are set to expire soon. Soon as in May 29, 2017.
If you were hoping to accumulate some more points in order to get to that next level accessory, unfortunately your time is up. There doesn’t appear to be any way to earn points any more, seeing as that the social media point earnings option has disappeared.
Redeeming Current Points
One silver lining in this is, although the point levels appear to be accessory specific, they are not. Any redeemable dollar amount can be spent towards the device or accessory of your choosing. This works out great so that you’re not tied to get something that you don’t necessarily want.
Thanks to the redeeming option, I was able to get the HTC Klick for free (minus shipping). I really wanted that thin case with a kickstand.
Redeem your points now. If you can’t decide what you want now, the deadline to spend your redeemed points is July 1, 2017, so redeem them right now at the very least.
The Future of the Perk Program
There has been very little information released regarding the future of HTC’s perk program. All that is known is the program is evolving into something else. Hopefully HTC makes the program more well known. I don’t see many other phone manufacturers giving points to their customers for every purchase they make. Buying a phone alone gave people enough points to receive a pair of earbuds for free.
Whether you want a new phone, headphones, charger, cord or case, spend those points and don’t let them go to waste.
