Google Wallet Starts Accepting Prepaid Card Refund Requests


Were you an early adopter of Google Wallet? Did you add funds to your account through a Google prepaid card? We reported last month that Google was ending the prepaid program, and it’s already stopped letting users add funds to cards as well as link them to new phones. That was a month ago today, and now Google is finally letting users who still have a balance on their cards start taking steps to reclaim that money.

Google has a new form up on its site that lets you submit your info for getting your prepaid balance returned. You’ll need to provide your personal details, as well as some info from the Android handset you used with Wallet.

Even once your request is in, you’ll still have a bit of a wait before you see your money again. Google’s not even going to start processing these requests until the end of the month, and depending on how you want your money, there could be an even longer wait in store. Requests for reimbursement via prepaid MasterCard will only take a couple weeks, while a check by mail could take close to two months.
