Woolworths and Big W are now selling the Android equivalent to iTunes gift cards in Australia. Better late than never, we suppose…
It’s taken a while, but Android-loving Australians can now snap up Google Play gift cards from Woolworths and Big W. The cards currently come in $10, $30, $50 iterations and are available now from Woolworths and Big W outlets. (According to an AusDroid report the cards weren’t supposed to go on sale until today, but I spotted them on the weekend while doing my weekly grocery shopping.)
We contacted Woolworths who confirmed that the cards will be sold exclusively through its supermarkets and the Woolworths-owned Big W department stores.
“As Australia’s leading multi-channel retailer we understand that our customers are just as interested in what they can buy online as in store. With Android phones now the norm, we’re proud to be the first retailer to bring Google Play gift cards to Australian shoppers,” a Woolworths representative said in a statement.
To redeem a Gift Card, users are required to create a Google Wallet account and redeem the card within two years of activation. You can read the full terms and conditions at Google’s website.
