UPDATED: Google Play Gift Cards on sale in Australia next week

UPDATE: Ausdroid is reporting that reader (and long time friend of GCOS) Beau, managed to purchase a $20 Google Play gift card today (22/8) at Woolworths Town Hall.

If you’re one of the people who have made the switch to Android for your phone and/or tablet, you may be excited to know that from next Monday you’ll be able to purchase Google Play Gift Cards from Woolworths and Big W.

Ausdroid recently put the question to the supermarket chain, and they have just confirmed the rumours:

With Australians using more phones enabled with Android than any other operating system, being the first to sell the Google Play gift cards gives BIG W’s and Woolies’ customers an easy and simple way to access the many thousands of apps, magazines, books and music titles available.

We’re anticipating Google Play gift cards will be a big seller in the next few weeks reflecting both the increasing popularity of gift cards and the fact they make an ideal choice for Father’s Day.

Now let’s just hope they’ll end up being regularly discounted like iTunes cards!
