Google Wallet Prepaid Card Refunds Finally Going Out, Processing Issues Resolved

Back in September, Google announced that the prepaid card program through Google Wallet was coming to an end and that customers could receive refunds for leftover funds around October 17. Sure enough, on October 17, the refund form went live, giving those of us with non-working Google Wallet apps (thanks Verizon!) or those with remaining balances a chance to get their cash back. Some of us weren’t sure if it would work for non-supported devices, though, since some of the form’s boxes had to be left blank, again, thanks to non-working Wallet apps.

Also, after filling out the form, users who requested refunds were left in the dark as to when they may receive those funds. Up until moments ago, when I received a status report from Google, I had no idea if or when I would be receiving a refund. According to the email above, that silence was due to “processing issues” that have now be resolved.

If you have yet to receive your refund, there is a good chance that it will be in the mail by December 22.

  • Havoc70

    YEP! I just received that e-mail from Google about 15 minutes ago. They claim I should be getting my $10 refund on Dec. 22, 2012, AFTER the world ends apparently WTF good is a $10 refund if I can’t bloody spend it?!

    • Were you on a gnex with a custom rom/root?

      • Bigsike

        I got it today and my Gnex is running AOKP build 4 obviously w/root.

        • Weird. I guess I’m in a different batch. I’d just like my money back so I can spend it on a Nexus 10.

            I Just Let Google keep the $3.83 I had left, I probably would have spent more than that on all the Free Google apps I use daily. It would probably cost more than 3.83 to file paperwork, cut a check and mail it to me.

          • I had roughly 100 bucks in it… So…

        Before, Rooted Galaxy Nexus with Liquid Smooth ROM, but about a few weeks ago I took the dive and formatted/flashed Bugless Beast 4.1.2 ROM, and you know what? I’m never installing any other ROM.

        Now I know why they call it Bugless Beast…hahah. Incredibly fantastic and super fast ROM.

    • But December doesn’t exist…

  • Got my refund since last month.

  • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

    I want my 6 dollars DAMN IT! . . .

  • And 99% of them are the $10 free prepaid cards they gave out to people that installed Google Wallet and never used it. I’m getting $10 free for no good reason!

    • Daniel Maginnis

      same here. But they did drop the price after the 3g models came out

    • EvanTheGamer

      Same here buddy!

      Ain’t life grand?!

    • dj

      Same here but they took $4 because of there monthly service charge they implemented.

  • Eric Hauser

    Just got my email too. I filled out the form twice because I thought the first time it didn’t go through since I hadn’t heard from them.

  • antwonw

    Just got mine too!

  • Daniel Maginnis

    Sweet. Just got my email too. I was wondering what happened.
