We’ve just reached the final expiration date of the Google Wallet prepaid card.
Google announced the end of its early payment experiment just last month, and has started phasing out the card today, as promised. It set a relatively near cut-off date of Sept. 17 where people would not be able to add funds to their cards, so that service has been unavailable for a full month already.
The card itself expires today, so users won’t be able to use them any longer. Refunds on existing balances can be requested from today, however.
The move comes at a time where Google is moving quickly to pack in more compatibility with credit and debit cards in Google Wallet. The prepaid option was a stopgap allowing early adopters to add funds to the Google Wallet app, which previously only supported Citi’s MasterCard.
This is only going to affect users in the US, as the app has not been made available to users in other regions.
If you haven’t spent what’s left in your balance, Google is allowing users to request a refund of their remaining funds here.
