Re: Missed my $25 Freebie ... maybe not!
« on: September 04, 2012, 03:17:23 PM »
Hi

As I went through the initial start-up of my 7 I decided to skip over the section where, if I entered credit card info etc, it would set up some kind of user account(?) AND they would give me a $25 "signing bonus".   Now I'm ready to invest in a few purchases and I'd like to have that cash ... but I don't know how to get back to it ... maybe it's too late?

Anybody have some suggestions for me?

EDIT ... it's Google Wallet app ... where is it on the 7?

Thanks

Frank

Tap the circle with 6 squares at the bottom of the screen to reach your installed Apps. Then swipe left or right until you find Play Store and tap it. Then if you are not prompted to setup an account, tap the the 3 squares in the upper right corner and then tap accounts and add an account. Once you have enter the account information you should have the option to pay with your credit card or the $25 Google credit.

Thanks very much for the reply.   Followed it to the letter.   Seems my account is already there and no way to delete it (to start over).   Anyway, I went so far as to download an app I wanted and it showed that it would be paid for through my VISA ... I must have gone farther into setting up the account than I remembered.    There was no mention of a credit so I guess I've missed out on that one.

Anyway, thanks for trying to help.

Maybe I got it after all!!    My app purchases showed they were going through my Visa but I've been watching that account and those purchases haven't showed up!    Maybe Google Play intercepts them and takes it from the $25 stash.

C;aiming your $25 credit

I had the same problem and so I wrote to Google Play support.  They told me that $25 credit applies only to a new N7 with no Apps/data loaded.  I would need to reset everything to that state. Then open a Wallet account; etc.

Too much trouble for me.
