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.

This would be the way for those without credit cards to ball out in the Play store.

They will be available at GameStop, RadioShack, and Target in the very near future, if they are not already. should have them by next month. You will be able to purchase them in $10, $15, $25 and $50 denominations.

All of the dirty details can be found at the Google Play gift card landing page. Instructions for using them here.

Google Play Store Gift Cards Already Available and on Display at Some Target Stores

They are gift cards, people. With that said, some Target stores are already displaying and allowing you to purchase them. So if you need a gift card, think about stopping into your local red-dotted store.  (more…)
