More free money for Google Wallet users

By Updated on

It really does pay to be a happy Google Wallet customer, literally. If you are a frequent user of the NFC-based service, you may have been experiencing some problems lately related to Google pre-paid cards.

The main problem at hand was the inability to add the pre-paid card back to your wallet if you had previously removed it. Google had officially removed the option to add it back temporarily, but they have just sent out a very nice email to customers informing them that the service is now back up and running as normal.

To make up for the inconvenience caused, they have handed out yet more money as a way of saying sorry. You’ll now find your pre-paid credit has been given an additional $5, so if you were previously sitting on $0, feel free to indulge in a $5 spending spree at your local 7-11.

It’s not the first time that Google has handed out cash credit to Wallet customers of course. Back in December of last year, Google were even handing out a $10 welcome credit for those who installed the app on their Galaxy Nexus devices for the first time. That’s $15 completely free – you really can’t argue with that can you?

Our only gripe is that Google Wallet isn’t available in other countries – like Hong Kong. We want to join in on the fun as well Google, we have 7-11 stores here too you know!

If you have Google Wallet, let us know if the $5 extra credit has already been applied to your Wallet or not. Have you already spent the extra cash? Feel free to let us know what you bought below.
