Google today informed customers of its Google Prepaid Cards that the service will be shut down October 17. Google said that customers will no longer be able to add funds to their Google Prepaid Card as of September 17, and any funds still in the account will be inaccessible after October 17. Google encourages users to spend their balance before then, though it will issue refunds to those who do not. Google pointed out that it now accepts more credit cards and debit cards, and feels the prepaid card is no longer necessary.
