Google is being nice to refund the hardware purchase made for Stadia. I got 3 sets of Stadia premier before ($22 each). Hopefully, I get the money back. If you have made the purchase, be sure to check. Below is the email from Google.

On September 29, 2022, Google announced that the Stadia service will be winding down on January 18, 2023.

Due to this wind down, you'll be issued a refund for Stadia hardware purchases made on Google Store.1 Your refund will be issued within 2 weeks. Once it's issued, you'll receive an email confirmation.

It's possible that there may be a problem processing your refund due to the time that has passed since the order was placed. If this happens, you'll receive an email with instructions with next steps.

For more information, visit the Stadia Announcement FAQ.

Sincerely,
The Google Store team

Controller works with pc and tablets (plug and play). I was using it to play free Amazon Luna games on desktop and Samsung Galaxy tab S7+.

It was actually the reason that I bought 3 Stadia premier sets when it was $22 at one time. Sold the Chromecast and kept the controllers for free. The controller is actually pretty nice build, much better than the no-name brand ones which sells between $10-$25.

I dont even know what card i used, looks like was a visa gift. Probably no way of recovering it.

Also people who got it as a gift are screwed as well

You can contact Customer Service for an alternate way to get a refund if you don't receive it
