Google’s Commerce Blog just announced a promotion regarding Google Wallet, offering free Listerine Pocketpaks to those Google Wallet customers that use the app to make a purchase at participating locations before April 28th. Users of Google Wallet, the virtual pocketbook platform that stores a users credit information – which can be used as a credit/debit card to make real-world purchases, can locate businesses that accept the app in general by checking Google’s ‘where it works‘ page.
Below is a video of Google Wallet in use:
Google Wallet also stores a user’s offers and other reward promotions right within the app, and merchants can scan the bar code of the deal or manually enter its number. Wallet also offers Google SingleTap, which is supported by select stores, where one can pay and redeem an offer by tapping their phone once while checking out.
The Listerine promotion is offered by Johnson & Johnson Healthcare Products Division of McNEIL-PPC, Inc., and is presently redeemable at over 167 Walgreens and Duane Reade locations in New York City.
In related news, it was recently reported that Google acquired payments technology company TxVia, to reinforce its Wallet app. Osama Bedier, Vice President of Wallet and Payments at Google, stated, “Finding and purchasing products is a big part of day-to-day life – At Google, we’re working to create new ways to improve the commerce experience. We’ve worked closely with TxVia over the last year, and they’re a forward-thinking team that will help us take the next steps in realizing the future of commerce.”
