Google to Offer Gift Cards for Google Play

You can find gift cards for just about any app store including iTunes, Amazon, and more. But until today if you wanted to give someone a store credit at Google Play

Google looks to have noticed that missed opportunity, and according to Android Central the cards will be available in $10 and $25 denominations. There’s no word yet on exactly when the cards will show up on store shelves, but I suspect that you’ll be able to buy an online equivalent in the next few weeks.

Speaking of gift cards, did you know buy them just about anywhere?  Just about every brick-and-mortar retailer sells gift cards for all the major US app stores.
