Google Play Wakes Up To In-Store Gift Cards

April 4, 2011: The Gift Card Advantage

Today, August 16, 2012: Google Play gift cards are real – and here’s what they look like

We still need to know if these will require credit cards to use.

Barnes & Noble has Gift Cards too, but they’re worthless. You need to have a credit card first because of the way their mutant Adobe DRM operates.

And Amazon has Gift Cards too, but the georestrictions of their Android App Store require credit cards too. So they’re worthless for buying Android apps.

I hope Google Play does not make the same mistake as those two!
