Google Play Gift Cards now available at Target, RadioShack and GameStop (Will you use them?)
Over the past week, we’ve talked a bit about Google Play Gift Cards and that they were coming soon. We just didn’t know when they’d actually be on retail shelves, or even which retailers would carry them. Now we’ve got the 411, as Google has opened up an official site detailing the cards and where you can get them.
For now, only three retailers are on board: Target, RadioShack and GameStop. We expect to see them pop up in more locations soon, especially if Google plans to contend with iTunes and Facebook gift card sales.
The Play Store cards will come in three denominations: $10, $25 and $50, and cannot be redeemed for Android app subscriptions, magazine subscriptions, or hardware and accessory purchases — otherwise, everything else looks to be fair game.
Google Play gift cards are perfect for any occasion. You can buy them from your local retail store. Use your gift card to purchase your favorite entertainment on Google Play.*
- Explore millions of songs from top artists, thousands of your favorite movies and TV shows, the world’s largest selection of eBooks, and much more. Play your purchases instantly on the web or on the go — no need for wires or syncing.
- Shop for all the Android apps and games you love with your Google Play gift card. You can even use it to purchase extra levels, add-on packs, and virtual currency.
Now that we know how much they cost and where to pick them up, will any of you be rushing out to your local brick-and-mortar shops to pick up a few Google Play Gift Cards, or is having a credit/debit card connected to your Play Store account (and in some cases, bill-to-carrier) enough for you?
It’s a boring Tuesday. Hit up the thread below and kick off the conversation.
