Some Important Points

Please note that there should be a mminimumof 2 callouts per account, campaign, or ad group for your ad to be eligible to show with callouts. You can create upto 4 callouts with 25 characters each. Google will choose to display at least 2 or maximum 4 callouts with your ads. The final decision for displaying callouts with your ads rests with Google so don't get amazed if you are unable to see callouts with your ads. 

Callouts are a part of ad extensions and hence they are a part of Ad rank formula that is used to determine the relevance of an ad. Higher ad rank leads to higher ad position at a lesser bid. They also lead to a higher conversion rate. Callouts can get display with other ad extensions as well.
