The service hasn't changed in terms of being a service where you can collect points (previously Free Coins) by participating in events such as watching videos and adding official accounts as friends.
With LINE Points, it is not just about watching videos or adding official accounts as friends; you can also collect points doing everyday things.
For more information, please refer to the following Help article.

Participating in events
From LINE, go to More > LINE Points and participate in an event. Each event has different conditions that have to be met. You can read the conditions for each event on the details page. Please note events may end earlier than stated.
Using a LINE Pay card
You can collect LINE Points by using a LINE Pay card. Please note LINE Pay cards are currently only available as a Japan only service.
There are two types of LINE Points: standard and limited-time.

Please be aware that you'll lose your entire Point balance once it has expired. For more information, please refer to the following Help articles:

The LINE Points Notice account is an official account which will notify you when you acquire and use LINE Points. This makes it easier for LINE Points users to keep track of the Points they have earned and the items they have exchanged which are issued at a later date.
The LINE Points Notice official account cannot be blocked or deleted.
- Notifications can be turned off.
- You may not receive notifications in some cases.
The Automatic Exchange of Points for Coins
From LINE version 6.8.5, we have added a feature to automatically exchange LINE Points for LINE Coins when purchasing stickers or themes. For this reason, you are no longer able to manually exchange Points for Coins by going to Use from the LINE Points menu.
The amount of Coins you see on the item purchase screen is determined as follows:
Your Coin balance = the Coins you purchased + the amount of Coins that can be exchanged from your current Point balance.
If you are able to purchase an item using the Coins you charged, Points will not be exchanged.
From LINE, go to More > LINE Points to view an event's details page. If you fulfill the conditions for each event, you can earn LINE Points.
Please note in order to earn LINE Points, you need to register your phone number beforehand. If you have not registered your phone number, please do so from the link below.
First, please check the conditions to earn LINE Points on the details page for each event. If you did not receive points despite fulfilling the conditions and after waiting for 24 hours, the following cases may be possible.
App installation type events
- You have previously installed the relevant app in the past.
- You did not start the app within 24 hours after installing it.
- You did not return to the event's details page within 24 hours after starting the app.
Mission type events
- You have previously applied for an item or service for an event with the same details in the past.
- You changed browsers halfway through participating in an event.
- You have set your browser to block cookies.
- The maximum amount of points to be issued for an event has been reached.
If you tap the menu icon at the top of the screen > LINE Points History > Earned and see a Pending status, it means the points you earned are delayed. In this case, please wait for some time to pass for the points to be issued to you and check once again.
If the issue persists even after checking the above, please contact us via the Problem Report Form.
Promotions managed by third parties are published in the LINE Points page.
If you were not issued points, please contact the promoter from the inquiry page indicated in the promotion's details page. Please understand that you may not be able to participate in some third party promotions depending on your region.
Limited-time Points are available only for a certain period of time, and are scheduled to expire on a pre-determined date. Their expiration date cannot be extended by acquiring more Points.
Note: The expiration date for limited-time Points differs depending on the promotion.
When you use Points to make a purchase, they will be used in the following order:
• Points with the nearest expiration date will be used first, regardless of whether they are standard or limited-time Points.
• If you have both standard and limited-time Points with the same expiration date, the standard Points will be used first.
Note: Limited-time Points are only for use in Taiwan.
