Hello

We want to thank you for using the Wallet Card and for any feedback you’ve shared.
After careful consideration, we’ve decided that we’ll no longer support the Wallet Card as of June 30. Moving forward, we want to focus on making it easier than ever to send and receive money with the Google Wallet app.
Here’s what this means for you:

You can only make purchases with your Wallet Card until June 30.
You won’t be able to add money to your Wallet Balance from a debit card or bank account after May 1, but money you receive from others will still be added to your balance.
If you have money in your Wallet Balance after May 1, you can keep it there, send it to others, or cash out anytime for free.


If you’re interested in finding a replacement for your Wallet Card, both American Express and Simple offer debit accounts with similar features, including a card. Plus, we’ve teamed up with them so that Wallet Card users will get an added bonus after signing up.

As we wind down support for the Wallet Card, we’re excited to continue enhancing Google Wallet to give you the best possible experience when paying friends and family. We’re hard at work on new features, so keep an eye out for those in the coming months.

I contacted Simple on Facebook. Looks like we are good to go:

"There aren't any other requirements. If you were a Google Wallet Card customer and are transitioning to Simple, we'll give you $20 to help you make the move. No fees, no minimum balance, no minimum deposit."

I use mine quite a bit....whenever I have to hand a stranger payment (fast food/restaurant/etc.) I always get the total first and then quickly load my card and used it in those situations. Never kept a balance on it in case it was stolen.

Worked great for me, bummer.

What sounds so complicated? 10 seconds on my phone and the money was on my card.
