This will be interesting to follow…
I look forward to this and then as they cancel it just as it gets going.
Oh that would be very interesting but surely not for the UK any time soon though
I still remember the first time they came out with a prepaid card. I had it for a while but there was nothing really compelling about it, and they never really developed it before they ditched it. Hope they’re a bit more committed to the idea this time.
I don’t remember that. How long did they keep it around?
Until end of 2016, it looks like. Here’s an article about the cards being terminated. I still have my old card, which I guess now serves as a warning that Google might not see this one through either:
Interestingly, it didn’t act like other prepaid cards in that it worked for inflight purchases; I’d accidentally shortchanged Air Canada by making an inflight purchase with it shortly before termination, and apparently they didn’t actually process the charge until termination date had passed because I never saw the charge hit my account.
A bank card that stalks you. Just what everyone wanted.
