Google Pay’s popular stamp collection scheme, which was suppose to end on October 31, has been extended till November 11.
The scheme, launched ahead of Diwali, promised to give users a cashback of ₹251 and also announced a chance to win up to ₹1 lakh on collecting five distinct stamps; Jhumka stamp, Flower stamp, Diya stamp, Lantern stamp and the Rangoli stamp.
To get a stamp, you either need to make a transaction of more than ₹35 or gift someone a stamp, to get another one.
Despite trying their best, people couldn’t get enough of the rangoli stamp and complained about the same on social media about its unavailability.

Apparently, people have spent more money than what they will ultimately get after receiving the rangoli stamp. Sums up how much we Indians love to collect free stuff.
