Google Play gift cards now available in Australia

Google Play gift cards available through Woolworths supermarkets and Big W department stores

Google Play gift cards are now on sale through Woolworths supermarkets and Big W department stores across Australia, Ausdroid has confirmed.

Available in $20, $30, and $50 denominations, the gift cards will be exclusively sold through Woolworths and Big W stores.

The cards have a two year expiration date from the time of purchase, and can be used to buy Android apps, movies, music, books and magazines through Google's Play Store.

According to Android blog Ausdroid, the gift cards weren't officially due to go on sale until today. However, users have reportedly been able to purchase them in selected Woolworths stores since Friday, 23 August.

Despite the availability of the cards in both Woolworths and Big W stores, Google has refused to officially announce them. When contacted by Good Gear Guide the company would only respond with this generic statement.

"Google Play gift cards will soon be available in Australia. We'll have more information to share when they hit shelves.

The Google Play gift cards can be redeemed through the Play Store on a compatible smartphone or tablet, or on the Web.

Any redeemed gift cards will appear on a users' account as part of their Google Play balance.

While the gift cards can be used to purchase apps and other content, they can't ve used to buy devices from the Play Store, such as Google's Nexus branded smartphones and tablets.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
