South African Android users can purchase and enjoy paid or premium Google Play Store apps without the hassle of having to add and using debit or credit cards on Google wallets, thanks to the availability of Google Play Store Gift Cards. This can be a convenient way for parents who wish to purchase apps for their children's Android devices without having to associate their debit or credit cards with their children's devices (or share their Google accounts with them). These Gift cards are sadly available in very limited denominations, viz R 150, R 250, R 450 but the good news is that they never expire. Purchase any of the above listed denomination from participating outlets like Pick 'n Pay, Checkers and Shoprite. Scroll to the answer section below for the steps you are to follow to apply the Gift Card.
