Google today announced that a larger selection of retail locations are now accepting its Google Wallet-based payment service. The service, which ties a phone-based near-field communications chip to a credit card account, has been up and running at Subway and Walgreens locations in New York City and San Francisco for about a month. Today they are joined by American Eagle Outfitters, The Container Store, Foot Locker, Guess, Jamba Juice, OfficeMax and Toys'R'Us retail locations. In addition to the retail expansion today also said that these stores can redeem coupons and/or earn rewards points at these locations. Some of the coupons will be available from within the Offers tab of the Wallet application. Google Wallet is currently only available to the Samsung Nexus S on Sprint's network.
