Where to sell Google Play credit?

Post by boglemyinvestments » Fri Aug 17, 2018 9:46 pm

Hello all,

I have $130 credit for Google Play from a Samsung promotion. I don't have any use for it and am trying to find a way to trade or sell the credit. From the email i received from Samsung it looks like it will expire in a couple days unless the credit gets added to a Google account. Once it's added to an account it won't expire until June 30, 2019. I've checked different sites that you can resell gift cards to and they won't take promotional credit.

Any ideas?

Thanks!

You bought a Costco TV, yes? I did the same and figured the $75 Google play card as a discount thinking I could sell it. You can sell Google play cards, but this promotion applies credit to your account by verifying your purchase with a receipt, not just including a card with purchase. I was unable to find a way to convert credits to cash. You can't even buy a Google gift card with the credits (that loophole would be too easy).

I eventually purchased some music, since I use Google music for my personal library already. Also, you can get digital subscriptions to many popular publications with might be about the same cost as subscribing directly, though you access the content via Google's app, not the provider's. If you already subscribe to something, this would be a good use of credits.

You can't (sell it), but as JASC15 mentioned, you can buy movies, music, books, etc.

Haha yep! I received the credit promotional codes already and have checked to make sure they can be added to any Google account.

I've been trying to find something to use it on. I was hoping to find somebody that would actually have use for the credit in exchange for a $70 Amazon gift card or something.
