What are TpT credits?

TpT credits are points which can be applied to future TpT purchases. The amount you can apply is displayed in U.S. Dollars (USD) on your account balance page. 


The primary way you can earn TpT Credits is by leaving ratings and reviews on your purchased resources. You may also receive TpT Credits on your account because they're added by Team TpT, for example as reimbursement — those will be listed "Credits added to your account by TpT Staff".


When you leave a review, you'll earn 1 credit for every $1 you spent on TpT for that resource. Each credit has a value of 5 cents, so every 20 credits earned equals $1 you can apply to future TpT purchases. We'll round up from 50¢ for you! If you provide a review on a resource priced $4.75, you'll earn 5 credits.


TpT credits are only earned for reviews left on active, paid resources. Credits are not earned on gift card purchases, inactive resources, or free downloads.


After using a resource, you can leave a rating and review by following these steps:

  1. Go to your "My Purchases" page.
  2. Click the "Leave a review" link (note you won't be able to leave a review until you've used the resource)
  3. Answer each question and leave a review sharing more about your experience with the resource. Then, click "Done."

To redeem your credits, look for "Use Account Balance" located under the "Checkout" button in your cart. Enter the amount you'd like to apply toward your order, and click "Apply."
