The balance on your Google Play gift card can be used to purchase games, apps and any digital content on Google Play. Below are the steps to checking the balance on your gift card:
1. Visit Google Play and tap on the profile icon.
2. Go to Payment and Subscriptions.
3. Tap Check the Play Balance.
To add more credits to your Google Play Balance, simply visit a convenience store to add cash to your account. However, you will need to check if this is available in your country. Also, there might be additional fees when you add money to your account.
Another way to add money to your account is by redeeming more gift cards or digital codes. Keep in mind though that users are not allowed to share content on Google. If you have a different account for your mobile and tablet, you will need to purchase the digital content separately.
If you purchased an app using the wrong account, consider contacting the app's developer as they might be able to refund you the amount.
You can choose from millions of games, apps and other digital content at the Play Store and you can use your gift card in paying for the digital content. Google Play gift cards never expire, which means you can use them at any time in the future. As soon as the gift card is redeemed, the credits remain in your account.
If you want to purchase a Google Play gift card online, simply go to the Amazon website, Target, Lowe's, Gyft, or Kroger. Google Play gift cards are also available in retail stores including Walmart, Walgreens, Kroger, Target, Dollar General, CVS Pharmacy, Family Dollar and 7-11. The gift card can only be used in the country where it was purchased. If you have questions, please contact Customer Support.
