Google adds coupons, rewards points to Wallet app for Android


Google has expanded the capabilities of its Wallet app for Android smartphones, adding the promised coupons and rewards features that were announced when Wallet was originally revealed.

Users can now use Wallet to redeem coupons from American Eagle Outfitters, The Container Store, Foot Locker, Guess, Jamba Juice, Macy’s, OfficeMax, and Toys “R” Us. Wallet will also track reward points at stores that offer that service. The act of paying, using a coupon, and collecting rewards are all handled by the Single Tap feature. Users don’t have to worry about finding their coupon or rewards cards anymore, as Wallet’s Single Tap will handle the whole transaction.

And, before you ask, yes, Google Wallet is still only available on one phone (Google Nexus S 4G) and one carrier (Sprint). Hopefully Google will fast track the roll-out to other devices and carriers so that more users can enjoy the features of Google Wallet. In the meantime, watch the video to see other people use Google Wallet to pay for things.
