Google expands Google Play presence with gift cards

The Internet is no longer big enough for Google Play as Google announced gift cards for its virtual store Tuesday.

The company said Google Play gift cards will be available at Target, GameStop and RadioShack. Google said Wal-Mart will also begin to offer the cards, but not until later this month and only from its website.

The cards will be available at three different prices: $10, $25 and $50.

The company announced the news online through a post on the Google Play page on Google+ along with a picture of the card.


“You can use them to purchase your favorite music, movies, books, apps, games and more,” Google said online. “You can even use them to purchase in-app goods in your favorite games.”

The cards, however, cannot be used for app subscriptions, magazine subscriptions or to purchase hardware or accessories from the online store, according to an information page for the gift cards.

Google said the cards will arrive at the three retailers over the next few weeks.
