Pokémon Go is an inescapable force of nature, deal with it… Or get deals for playing it! You can capture all sorts of benefits besides Pokemon like free data, discounts on a Zoo and more. Check out the list. If I missed any deals or you encounter one that didn’t work for you or it’s expired email me at email@example.com please and I’ll update it ASAP.
How to get each Pokémon Go freebie / deal:
- FREE Cash / Rewards & Charity Donations For Walking: The only issue with these is you need another tracker besides Pokemon Go, but if you are doing your best to hatch eggs you can hatch rewards like cash from Pact app, rewards at Walgreens or even charity donations with Charity Miles.
