It looks like Google Play Gift Cards are now in the wild, with the Woolworths store, located at Town Hall in George Street, Sydney selling them to Ausdroid reader Beau.
After finding the cards on-sale inside the Woolworths App Beau was able to purchase a $20 Gift Card. The Woolworths App is showing $20, $30 and $50 denominations as available as we reported, if your store has indeed got them in stock but not on display they may actually sell them to you if you show them the listing in the app :
At this stage, Google Australia has not responded with any further information at this stage, their official quote remains :
Google Play gift cards will soon be available in Australia. We’ll have more information to share when they hit shelves.
The fact that the Retail Partner Manager who was in charge of expanding Google Play Gift Cards within Australian retail is based in California at Google headquarters could be an explanation of the lack of information.
Either way, head on over to your local Woolworths and see if they are in-stock, with Big W also carrying the cards, you may wish to try them as well. Let us know how you go.
