Heads up: Costco offering $60 worth of Google Play gift cards for $48 this weekend [DEALS]


Google Play giftcards 3 pack

In a follow up to our previous post highlighting Square Enix’s epic holiday sale, shoppers looking for last minute gifts might want to turn their attention to Costco this weekend. As tipped by a Reddit user claiming to work at Costco’s corporate offices, the bulk retailer is planning offer $60 worth of Google Play giftcards for the low price of $48. Currently, the pack of 3 $20 cards can be found on their website here.

If this tipster is correct, you might want to rush down to your local Costco in the AM. These would not only make great gifts for others, but we wouldn’t blame if one happened to find its way into your own stocking this Christmas.

Just a heads up for anyone considering buying these in mass quantities, as per Google Play’s terms of service, these giftcards cannot be used to purchase devices (hardware) or Google Play Music All Access monthly subscription. Music, games, movies, and apps are all game. Have fun!

  1. Costco had this same 20% off deal for a couple days during Black Friday as well. I snagged some for xmas stocking stuffer gifts.

  2. <3 Costco

  3. Costco employee here and can confirm $47.99 for 3 $20 Play gift cards.

  4. Good deal. That’ll last me forever because I rarely buy music or games.

  5. Already shows the lower price on the Costco site. $47.99

  6. Google has to stop it with the “can’t be used for” crap. Why are certain colors of cash worth different than others?

    1. that confuses me too. Idk why you can’t use cash to buy cards to buy hardware. Damnit Google, you’re making it tough to give you money

      1. The Nexus five is one of the best phones at the lowest price yet some of you want even more? Stop posting this drivel because it’s embarrassing.

        1. I’m not knocking the n5(i love mine to death). This has nothing to do with the device. We were just saying how it’s dumb that there are limitations to what you can do with Google play credit. Do u have any valid reason why they shouldn’t be able to use Google play credit for certain Google play items? There’s no excuse to not allow customers to use it on what they want. In the end, Google is still getting paid

          1. YES! BECAUSE GOOGLE DOESN’T WANT TO GIVE $70 OFF ON THE NEXUS 5!!!! Companies have stipulations ALL THE TIME! This is NOTHING NEW! There is NO OTHER Android phone you could buy at $350 with the higher end specs of the Nexus 5! To think that one should THEN EXPECT to get an additional $70 off is RIDICULOUS.

  7. Does anyone SERIOUSLY think it’s reasonable that Google should allow these to be used to buy the Nexus 5? Why do you feel entitled to $70 off on their newest phone? They are essentially handing you $12 cash and yet you want even more!! Why do some of you feel so entitled? Especially given how Google has demonstrated they are willing to deeply discount their products as new products rollout.

    1. Because its an easy way to use cash to purchase it. It’s not just about getting a a deal. But if I get a discount on a gift card for any other retailer I wouldn’t be limited on what I can buy in their store.

      1. There are MANY examples of this! It’s not like Google is the first to do this!

        1. They aren’t the first, but it’s not common. If I buy a amazon gift card I’m not limited to their app store. There is no way for anyone to purchase these devices off of the play store without using a credit or debit card (pre-paid Visa’s require personal info, so they aren’t a viable option)
