Google Wallet officially launched about a month ago on the Sprint Nexus S 4G. Today, Google announced that more Google Wallet Merchants are now live.

American Eagle Outfitters, The Container Store, Foot Locker, Guess, Jamba Juice, Macy’s, OfficeMax and Toys “R” us are now letting consumers pay, redeem coupons, and/or earn rewards points using Google Wallet’s “SingleTap” experience.

Google has also added a feature to the “Offers” tab in Google Wallet called “Featured Offers”. This shows discounts that are exclusive to Google Wallet.

“Organizing loyalty cards in your wallet is getting easier too,” says Google’s Director, Emerging Markets, Spencer Spinnell. “Today, Foot Locker, Guess, OfficeMax and American Eagle Outfitters are providing loyalty cards for Google Wallet so you can rack up reward points automatically as you shop. More of these are on the way.”

“One more thing—in response to user feedback, we’ve improved transaction details for the Google Prepaid Card with real-time transaction information including merchant name, location, dollar value and time of each transaction,” adds Spinnell.
