When Google launched its Google Play gift cards in the US last year, you were probably hoping that they’d make their way up to Canada not long after. However, the big G decided to make a detour to the UK instead, as the cards went live there earlier in the month, and are now available in stores across the country.

But all hope isn’t lost, as we’re picking up some signs that the elusive gift cards are about to land in Canada soon. The Canadian Play Store has been updated to allow customers to redeem their gift card codes. It’s also accessible via the Play Store website.


This sure ties in nicely to the promotion that Rogers is currently rolling out, where it’s giving away a free $35 Google Play voucher for those who buy a Samsung Galaxy phone. While it’s a good starting point, we’ll probably see the gift cards getting a wider release in the coming weeks, if not days.

Can’t wait to retire your credit cards for purchasing apps and other content on Google Play? Let us know in the comments.
