There are a lot of disadvantages to digital goods. One of them is the fact that availability of perks and privileges is subject to change at any time. Such is the case of the Ubisoft Club Points, which is a rewards program for the fans of the company. Their system has now been attached with an expiration date for exchange.
What are Ubisoft Club Points though? Well, these are basically Ubisoft’s reward for players who make grand progress on their games. These credits, marked with the gold U icon, are available to anyone willing to log into the service on their PS4/Xbox One – as well as obviously on PC – while playing Ubisoft games. Club Points could be used on a multitude of in-game items, boosts, or to get instant discounts on PC.
Thanks to several Reddit Posts that discuss the matter. It’s been reported that the French company has sent several users an e-mail that from now on their Ubisoft Club Points will have an expiration date. With an approximate duration of 2 years before they are gone forever.
In other words, if you don’t make use of them two years after earning them, they’re gone forever. The other big news is that any balance you have acquired on or before March 31, 2017 will expire on March 31, 2019.
To provide an avenue for players to spend their balance, Ubisoft said it’ll be making new rewards available from now until April 1. You can check your Ubisoft Club Units balance through the official site.
I would suggest players to check their available Ubisoft Club Points and see what deals can be scored. Even if 2 years is plenty of time, Ubistoft has also made clear that this announcement extends to points acquired after March 31, 2017.
Remember, digital goodies also have expiration dates, if they don’t, they will at some point.
