There's no denying 2020 was quite the year, particularly for Google which is in the midst of a legal onslaught. The company obviously can't wait to put 2020, as well as these lawsuits, behind it, so as a treat to customers, Google Pay is now offering upgraded rewards of $21 in cashback for select purchases and referrals.
Users who open the Google Pay app should immediately see the banner at the top for the new offer. In the U.S., spending $50 or more at Target with Google Pay will reward you with $21 cashback within the app. It's a one-time-only offer that you must activate within the app by December 31st. Following activation, you then have 45 days to use-it-or-lose-it.
Google Pay users can also get $21 rewards for referrals. There's a limit of up to three eligible referrals where the person who referred the app can get $21 per referral, and the recipient can also receive the $21. The caveat here is that the recipient has to spend at least $10 in the Google Pay app for both to receive the reward. 9to5Google reported that Google changed the limit from 10 referrals to three due to "enormous demand.
