If you signed up to get more information about Google Wallet back when Google first announced, check your inboxes. Emails are going out from Google to those customers interested in that information. Not only do they tell of Google Wallet’s launch (which we covered a few weeks ago) but they also offer users $10 to thank them for their interest in the program.
Sure, it’s not much (I could probably eat that up in one afternoon lunch) but it’s generous and will give people a free chance to see what the buzz is all about. The full Google Wallet experience will only be available for Sprint’s Nexus S 4G owners for the time being, unfortunately, but Google will soon roll out methods for all phones to take advantage. [Thanks Dimitry!]
Google Wallet now available Get ready to tap, pay, and save
Google Wallet, a mobile app that makes your phone your wallet, is now rolling out through a software update to Nexus S 4G by Google, available on Sprint. Set up Google Wallet with Citi MasterCard or the Google Prepaid Card in just a few minutes.
As a thanks for your early interest, we’ll give you $10 on the Google Prepaid Card if you activate it in Google Wallet by the end of the year. You can then reload the Google Prepaid Card using any of your plastic credit cards. Google Wallet will be automatically pushed to Nexus S 4G phones on Sprint as part of a software update. You can pay with Google Wallet at thousands of merchants across the United States.
This is just the beginning for Google Wallet, so stay tuned. Get Google Wallet ›
