There needs to be a well laid out perk system which clearly tells what one will get at what stage. At the moment, it is almost put in a way where it gives you an impression that you will be rewarded as you go but isn't so. Google needs to say that this is upto an extent, purely community service in a way.
Thanks for sharing your thoughts, @Sumanth_ . Your idea is getting closed since it is already clarified that p erks may be offered from time to time as a form of occasional gratitude. You can also turn to Local Guides Programme Terms and Conditions to refresh your knowledge of the program. Also, to maximize your chances of being eligible for a future perk opportunity, adding high quality contributions to Google Maps is the way to go. Please also be sure that your email preferences have perks emails enabled by visiting your Local Guides settings .
