Google Aggressively Pushes Wallet Card

•, Quentin Fottrell
 This week, the search giant added the “Google Wallet Card ” to the list of devices able to use its Google Wallet mobile payment system. Asked why users would want a physical card, when the whole point of a digital wallet would seem to be to dispense with the need for a carrying around a deck of plastic, a spokesman replied that the company is “always working on ways to make shopping a better experience for consumers.” By Thursday, all references to the “Google Wallet Card” were pulled from the site. The company would not comment on that.

It’s not the first time Google introduced its own cards. Earlier this year, the company launched a pilot Google “AdWords” business credit card for small businesses in the U.K. and U.S. to help them pay for and track their online advertising accounts with Google.
