Google Wallet Card is official, physical cards available only in the U.S.

google_wallet_cardIf you’re more interested in a physical card to shop with rather than NFC payments, Google has created the Wallet Card. With this physical card, you gain access to ATMs, banks, and wherever else MasterCard Debit is accepted. The card will use funds from your Wallet Balance to make payments, much like a regular debit card. Just make sure your Wallet account has the proper amount of funds. There’s no annual or monthly fees, so you can use the card freely.

The Google Wallet app will be updated later this week to allow users to order their Wallet Card. Or if you’re in a hurry, login to your Wallet account from a computer. For now, Google Wallet Card is only available in the United States.

    So I take money from my bank account and put it into my Wallet account, only to use a wallet card at all locations my bank card will work?

      Yep! Not sure what the incentive is except for people who really like physical cards. Then again, maybe since there are no fees.
