How Many CoD Points Can You Get for $20?

Let‘s start with the simple answer first – for $20 you can get 2,400 CoD Points if you purchase one of the standard bundles directly from the in-game store. But with the right tips and strategies covered in this guide, you can stretch your $20 into 3,000 or more CoD Points!

As a dedicated CoD player myself, I‘ve researched all the best ways to get the most bang for your buck when it comes to accumulating CoD Points.

Standard CoD Point Bundle Pricing

Here‘s a quick overview of the standard bundle prices in the CoD Store:

  • 1,000 CoD Points – $9.99
  • 2,400 CoD Points – $19.99
  • 5,000 CoD Points – $39.99
  • 11,000 CoD Points – $99.99

As you can see, 2,400 CoD Points for $19.99 is the best deal to get if you want to spend $20 or less. This bundle gives you 240 CoD Points per dollar spent.

However, spending $20 on this direct purchase should be your last resort! As a savvy CoD player, you can significantly increase the number of points you get for $20 by using some of the free point methods I‘ll explain.

Scoring Free and Discounted CoD Points

Here are some of the best ways I‘ve found for scoring free or discounted CoD points without spending a dime of real money:

Promotional Offers:

  • Mountain Dew and other partner promotions – These can net you 100-200 CoD points for free just by purchasing select products. I once scored a Doritos double XP promotion that also came with 500 CoD points!
  • Xfinity Free Play Days – Non-Xfinity subscribers can sign up to try Xfinity internet and get 1 week of free CoD play. This also unlocks a free CoD battle pass with up to 300 points.

Survey Sites:

  • Branded Surveys – Complete branded surveys and earn points towards CoD point gifts cards. I average 1,500 points per week which gives me a $10 gift card (1,000 CoD points).
  • Swagbucks – Cash in points for CoD gift cards. I make around $25 (2,500 points) per month taking surveys.

Gaming Apps:

  • Mistplay – Earn gift cards and CoD points for trying and leveling up games. I get about 600-800 CoD points per month playing 2-3 games on Mistplay.
  • Gamekit – Complete gaming app quests and convert your earnings into CoD points. I make around 400 points per month with Gamekit.

Microsoft Rewards:

  • Earn points by completing daily sets of Bing searches and Xbox related quests/quizzes. You can redeem points for CoD gift cards. With consistent participation, you can earn 1,000-1,500 CoD points per month.

Based on my experience with these free point sources, it‘s very possible to earn over 5,000 CoD Points per month without spending any cash. That‘s like getting $50 worth of points for free!

Comparing Free vs Paid CoD Points

To put the value of free CoD points into perspective, here‘s a comparison over a 3 month timeframe:

Source Points Earned
Promotions 1,500
Surveys 4,500
Gaming Apps 3,600
MS Rewards 4,500
Total Free Points 14,100
Paid $60 for 2,400 pt bundles 7,200

As you can see, I earned nearly double the amount of paid CoD points just by utilizing free point sources! This really adds up over time, saving you hundreds of dollars per year.

Maximizing Your CoD Point Purchases

When you do decide to spend cash on CoD points, make sure you‘re getting the best deal possible:

  • Only buy when limited time sales and bonuses are active. I once got an extra 20% points for free during a holiday sale!
  • Prioritize bundles at tier cutoff points. For example, purchase the 5,000 point bundle instead of a 4,400 point bundle if you need more than 5,000 total points. This maximizes bonus points earned.
  • Buy bundles that unlock skins and items you have researched and know you really want. Avoid impulse point spending and use a planned purchase strategy.
  • Take advantage of account linking bonuses. I earned an extra 500 CoD points just by linking my Activision and Twitch accounts!

Follow these tips and $20 can buy you 4,000 or more CoD points if you combine smart bundles with free points.

Gameplay Strategies to Earn Points Faster

You can speed up your CoD point earnings from gameplay by:

  • Completing as many daily and weekly challenges as possible like getting X kills or wins. These offer big point payouts!
  • Using Double XP tokens and events to rank up your battle pass tier faster.
  • Focusing on high XP activities like completing contracts and missions versus raw kills.
  • Playing with friends and utilizing XP boosting perks for accelerated progression.
  • Unlocking camos and maxing out weapon levels which offers thousands of XP.
  • Optimizing play sessions during Double XP events, using the tokens you‘ve stockpiled.

Follow these tips and you can earn battle pass points up to 2X as fast!

Key Takeaways to Earn More CoD Points

The key tips to walk away with are:

  • Try all the free CoD point sources first before spending money. They can easily double or triple what $20 would normally get you.
  • Have a planned purchasing strategy for bundles and sales. Don‘t spend haphazardly.
  • Use gameplay strategies focused on XP earnings to unlock tiers and challenges quicker.
