Nobody knows that Google Play gift cards exist.

I've been using Android since I got rid of the iPhone 3G (circa Nexus One), and this thread is the _first_ time I've heard of it being available.

Google Play gift cards have been available less than a month in most of the world. I'm not sure when they were first made available in the US.

Google Play gift cards in the US go back to August 2012, IIRC.

To clarify the parent comment, I see iTunes gift cards for sale at grocery store checkout lines. Perfect spontaneous purchases. Where do you even buy a Google Play gift card?

I see them at Safeway and Target here in Mt. View all the time. My location might be relevant though :)

In Australia I've seen them in BigW (kinda a Kmart/Walmart equivalent).
