Google Play gift cards now available in Canada


Holy crap something has came out for Canada! Now if we could only have Wallet on our mobile devices ...

Don't get me wrong, I see this as a wonderful news. I know what to ask for Christmas now.

Also, the card says MUSICMOVIESBOOKSAPPS&MORE. Music? Really? Let's start the rumor train!

Cool and about time. Since I only now have my nexus 7 as my only android device, I can use these for books.

Canada really didn't have these!? That shit cray... Ain't it Jay.... What she order??... Fish filet.

The picture above is the US cards. The picture from the Google Play post does not have "Music" on it.

So much useless, you can just spend it on ...


Yeah I'd like to have Music too, but this is far from useless. It is great news!

Attention Canadians:

You are never going to get access to our music. Any country that is responsible for Justin Bieber, Celine Dion, Avril Lavigne, & Nickelback doesn't deserve any music.....EVER!


Says the country that gave us Miley Cyrus, Kanye West, Lil' Wayne(threw up in my mouth after typing this one) and many other wastes of flesh that have made the last several years of music a joke.

Not to mention you'll give anyone a show, like a brainless former bouncer from Jerry Springer (oh yeah, notice how we don't have any shows like this taking place in Canada ;)) and the posers from Jersey Shore.

When will you ever learn? ;)

There's a reason Canada is on top American suckers. ;)

and next europe? belgium wants cards also so u can give those as bday gifs or use them yourself. cmon google!

Totally surprised to see these at Shopper's Drug Mart today. I just about had given up. Too bad Google Play Music isn't up and running in Canada. I might actually have use for the cards then...
