Google Play gift cards

Google has finally made Google Play gift cards available for people in Canada. Denominations of $15, $25 and $50 (CAD) are available from selected retailers. The short list of where to buy them: 

  • Shoppers Drug Mart
  • Future Shop
  • Target
  • 7-11
  • Best Buy
  • Mac's
  • Walmart
  • Pharmaprix
  • Circle K
  • Couche-Tard

Google advises that while the cards have officially launched, they still may be on the way to retailers. You should call around to see who has them in stock now.

The cards apply credit to your Google Wallet account for purchases of apps, books and movies from Google Play. To see how to redeem the value, have a look at our primer.

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.

AngryCarbon says:

Music? Ha! This is Canada not Lichtenstein.

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

Mayoo614 says:

Shhhhh, stop it. I'm dreaming here. ;-)

Wreckus says:

which wouldn't surprised me a bit.

Andre_M says:

Mostly useless... no music here :(

On2Vegas says:

Perhaps an announcement soon to come?? You never know.

Mayoo614 says:

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!

MrNinjaPanda says:

Actually you can't buy devices using Play gift cards. And you also can't use it to pay for magazine subscriptions.

Noted, thank you good sir.

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!

But we have Kinder Surprise!

Says the guy whose country spawned Miley Cyrus...

xlDeMoNiClx says:

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. ;)

Don't forget Drake...

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...
