A gift card, also called a gift voucher or simply gift certificate in North America, is a pre-paid stored-value plastic card, usually issued either by a bank or retailer, for the purchase of products within a certain store or associated businesses. These cards are great for any occasion, and they're much more flexible than gift certificates. In addition to being accepted at thousands of locations nationwide, they can also be purchased online for convenience. While they may seem like nothing more than plastic coupons, a Google gift card can be a real gift to give someone special – especially if it's worth money. If you haven't tried one out, take a look today!
The concept of the Google gift card is relatively simple: instead of a coupon that must be collected, purchased, and printed by the recipient, a buyer must simply complete a short application form online with his or her personal information before being able to complete in-app purchases using it. After that, every purchase is made automatically via the recipient's Google account. It's a fantastic solution to what could have been troublesome, time consuming, and even costly in the past (using cash or credit cards); and it's an innovative business model that has already launched in Australia.
The biggest advantage to these gift cards is the fact that they are available not only on Google Play the Android interface for mobile devices, but on several other shopping networks. Now not only can users of smartphones, tablets, laptops, and netbooks pay for items they want from their favorite stores, but they can do so from anywhere, including major cities and major airports. Just imagine the convenience that would come in when all that shopping, traveling, and dealing with paperwork is taken out of the equation. What a world this would make our lives, and who knows, maybe it will just revolutionize the whole world of shopping as we know it.
There are several ways to use your Google Gift Card. First, you can use it on any online retailer that accepts it; Amazon, eBay, and several other sites. This is the fastest way to get top-up access, especially if you're buying things like gas or hotel rooms on a frequent basis. The drawback, however, is that most apps that allow you to redeem your gift cards don't support overseas currency exchanges, which means that you'll likely be limited to the currencies in your country. That said, it still can be a useful tool if you travel frequently enough to visit a different country often.
The second most popular way to use your Google Play card is through the android devices. If you have an android phone, then you're already well aware that Google has a mobile operating system called “Gmail” (for Gmail). You can use your Google Play card to purchase items right on your phone, bypassing the need for a virtual credit card. This is the best way to use your Google Play card, but you may face a few problems, depending on your carrier and the store you purchase from.
One thing that I noticed is that Google does not seem to have any plans to release an app related to redeeming your Google Play card on non-Google Android devices. I suppose there's always a chance that they might one day do such a thing… but as of right now, you will have to either purchase an app to do so, or figure out another way around it. On the bright side, if you do happen to find an application that works on other and non-Google platforms, then you should definitely let people know about it! It would be a very big help to a lot of people who regularly use their android phones to go from pc to mobile. Even better, you can get a lot of use out of the google play card code by spending money on other applications as well.
Some apps available for android users are ones that give you free Google Play gift cards just by playing a certain game. These games can either be purchased or downloaded for free. You can then use these free gift cards to buy things on the google play store, like books, movies, and etc. If you're wondering how you can redeem your google play cards, the solution is to simply go into the Google play store and enter your code (you can get it by going to the “activate your account” link on the left hand side of the screen).
One thing I'd like to point out is that you should make sure that you keep up with Google's updates. There are all kinds of new applications being released on a regular basis that give you free Google play cards. When it comes to applications that you can actually use to get free stuff, you just have to find them. It's really easy to do.
