Google has this week announced that they will be bringing to an end and closing support for Google’s prepaid card for use with their Google Wallet applications and services.
Since Google has launched the ability to use both credit and debit cards within Google Wallet, the pre-paid cards need has now become obsolete.
After September 17th you will no longer be able to add funds to the Google pre-paid cards, and Google suggests using up any credit you might still have on the cards before October 17th 2012. Google explains:
“Your Google Prepaid Card will disappear from the Wallet app and you won’t be able to spend your balance any longer. Don’t worry, you will be able to request a refund if you have remaining funds by visiting this site.”
To clear your balance from the card you don’t have to spend the exact amount of your balance, as most merchants will be able to cover the remainder of your purchase with another payment method. For more information jump over to the Google website.
