Users Can Buy Google Play Credit From $5 to $50 Directly From the Play Store

Struggling to find Google Play gift cards? Yeah, me too. I know they are supposed to be available at Target and Gamestop, but I have yet to see one in the wild here in Oregon. Maybe I’m just not looking hard enough. Thankfully, I no longer have to look if I don’t want to, because Google is allowing you to buy Google Play credit directly from the Play store. Problem half-solved! Unfortunately, until they allow me to buy Google credit and hand it to another user, this is sort of a meaningless move.

If you are interested in loading up a child or friend’s account, know that you can buy anywhere from $5 to $50 worth of Play store credit.

    They are available at target, but only the target mobile stores, which are generally super targets. A target mobile store is one where they sell contract phones. They are often staged on the front endcaps with the s3 focal.

    I saw some gift cards at the Target in Greenville, SC. Should have snapped a picture.

    While not very useful in its current state, this at least shows that Google has some of the code in place to support gifting functionality. I can’t imagine its a huge stretch to implement deposits into someone else’s account versus your own. For all we know, adding funds to a different account will be rolled out tomorrow…. Another possibility is that this is ready to go, code-wise, but held up by some legal nonsense.

  • Buying credit for the same store you buying from kinda pointless.. needs gifting asap

    • OreoMan

      Unless you need to load some funds for one of your kids!

      • yeah but on the same account you are preloading, the credit card information is saved 🙂

            Can you install 2 accounts on the same device? Like can I install my google account to my brother’s phone? Or if I buy my parents a N7 tab, can I preinstall apps from my account to save them $50 in apps/ music and then they load their own account to the device afterwards?

  • Not available in the UK, it seems.
