Points are deviantART's newest way to thank and get thanks from delightful deviants just like you!
Whether you're rewarding fellow deviants for a job well-done, racking up commissions, scoring gear from deviantART Gear, purchasing Prints, or even just letting someone know how awesome they are, Points will revolutionize your deviantART experience like never before. And remember, the more Points you have, the more you can share!
Not only are Points the perfect way to show your friends you care, but using them couldn't be easier. You can transfer Points to someone for an inspirational deviation, trade Points for a commission, wish them a happy birthday, or simply give props for an amusing comment.
Stock up on Points and redeem them for anything in the deviantART Shop, from the coolest threads in deviantART Gear to the most breathtaking Prints of your favorite deviations. Coming soon, deviantART will release all kinds of things, big and small, only available by using Points!
'Tis better to give than receive? Yeah right! If you need Points, go ahead and ask! Friends and strangers can easily give you Points from the Points page, or even from your own profile page in the "Give" drop-down menu.
It's super-easy to get tons of Points. You get 80 Points for every U.S. dollar, so you can load up quickly and start sharing a lot or a little immediately without having to whip out your wallet for individual transactions. Just use the Points page to get started.
Points are very versatile, and we will be constantly coming up with new ways to make them even more useful as we expand the Points program. As we do this, though, there are some important things to keep in mind.
