Google has announced the launch of the shop. tap. reward program for Android Pay users in the United Kingdom. Android Pay has been growing steadily in the country since it was launched in May of this year. And now, it wants to give gifts for the holidays and wish you a Merry Christmas.
Starting today and until the end of the year, every time users pay with Android Pay in store or on the Transport for London network they will get a virtual cracker in the app. Users can open the cracker to find out if they’ve won one of the over 100,000 gift cards that Google will be giving out this holiday season. If you win that is a pretty sweet gift.
The virtual crackers could have a £10 Costa Coffee gift card, a £500 House of Fraser gift card, a gift card to Currys PC World of the same value or a pair of tickets for ODEON Cinemas. Like I said, these are pretty cool gifts. Customers can also collect a virtual coin with each of their first five taps. After five coins have been collected you will get a free £3 Costa Coffee gift card.
Also starting now, users in the United Kingdom will see the Android Pay button in the Uber app. This will let you pay using the mobile payments service for rides. Nice. Google is playing Santa in a big way.
