Redeem a gift card or promotional code

You can redeem a Google Play gift card or promotional code using your computer or the Google Play Store app.

Redeemed gift cards and some promotional codes appear on your account as part of your Google Play balance. Other promotional codes give you access to specific apps and digital content, and the download will be automatically added to your library after you redeem your code.

Redeem

To redeem or use a gift card or promotional code, the country in your Google Wallet account must match the country where the gift card or promotional code is offered. If you don't have a Google Wallet account, one will be created when you redeem a gift card or promotional code.

Using the Google Play Store app
  1. Open the Google Play Store app Google Play.
  2. Touch the Menu icon Google Play Store Menu Icon > Redeem.
  3. Enter your code.
Using your computer
  1. Visit play.google.com/redeem.
  2. Enter your code.
When making a purchase on Google Play
  1. During the checkout process on your computer or device, select the payment option drop-down.
  2. Select Redeem.
  3. Enter your code.
  4. Follow the on-screen instructions.

Change your home country

To review or change your address in Google Wallet, go to Home address.

If you have a Google Play balance, you can change your home country if your balance is below $10 USD (or equivalent). If you change your home country, your Google Play balance won't be carried over to your new country. If you switch your home country back to a country where you had a Google Play balance, your balance will be available again.

You can't change your home country if you have any of the following:

  • Google Play balance equal to or greater than $10 USD (or equivalent)
  • Google Wallet balance equal to or greater than $10 USD (or equivalent)
  • Google Wallet mobile app
  • Checkout Merchant account

Note: Google Play gift cards and promotional codes are currently available in select countries.
