Been waiting for a lifetime for Google Play gift cards to come to Canada? All signs are pointing to their imminent arrival.
Google Play gift cards, in denominations of £10, £25, and £50, are now official in the UK, and will be available from all Tesco and Morrisons outlets soon.
Although Google Play gift cards haven’t been given an official coming out party in the UK yet, they have made their way to at least one retail store in the country.
Young people own phones and tablets these days, but not credit cards, so they can’t buy apps. That’s why gift cards exist, and they’re soon going to come to the UK.
There doesn’t seem to be any information on where and when folks can purchase the Google Play vouchers in the UK. There’s one place on the Web, however, where you can get them for free.
The redemption page for Google Play Store gift cards has gone live in the UK version of the Play Store but there’s still no way for UK users to buy the Gift Cards.
The moment that many Google Play customers have been waiting for is here, as Google finally makes the Store’s gift cards official. The support page for the vouchers, which has just gone live, reveals more information that will please those in the U.S., but disappoint many outside the country.
Folks from Target were able to successfully redeem a $25 Google Play gift card ahead of the official launch. Some trickery was naturally involved in the redeeming process, given that it isn’t supposed to go live yet.
Buying for apps and other content on Google Play isn’t the easiest thing to do for folks who don’t have credit cards or simply don’t want to whip them out to buy games and apps — among other things. The same plight is faced by non-US customers whose payment option is even more severely limited. It looks Google is ready to give customers what they really, really want: the ability to use gift cards to make Google Play purchase.
