I bought a nexus 7 in 2012 and it came with a $20.00 gift card. When I went to install apps from the app store, it asked me to sign into my google account. I signed into my gmail account and received the $20.00 for the play store. I purchased one or two items but I'm positive I still have a good $15.00 left. Where do I go to check how much google play store money I have left on my account? I went to wallet.google.com and it asked me to create a payment method, but I know for a fact that I still ahve a good $15.00 left on that gift card... Do the gift cards expire?

According to the TOS, Google Play gift cards never expire.

You can view your balance by opening your Google Wallet page (you can also view your transaction history here to figure out where your money went) or by contacting Customer Care at 1-855-466-4438.

  • That Google Wallet page actually did show me when my credits expire. Thanks.

  • @MGOwen Interesting, I don't see when it expires anywhere. Where do you see that information? Feb 1, 2016 at 9:03

Gift cards expire after a year of not being used, I think.

To check their value go to buy an app, and on payment methods, the card will be displayed with the value underneath. Then cancel out of buying the app.
