Is Google Play Store purchase considered as a Book Store?

Postby nvtech » Sun Jul 14, 2013 7:46 pm

Hello Guys,

Planning to buy a Samsung Galaxy S4, Google play edition from the Google Play Store.
Just wondering if I use my forward card, it would be considered as a Book Store purchase.

Any ideas for cashback from Google Play Store purchases?

Got my answer myself with a quick test. Looks like google is not doing business as any listed category.

I just thought my Forward card could be of good use at Google Playstore.

What a bummer...No point in using there and I cancelled my purchase.
Its suprizing that Playstore doesn't fall in to any category.

Also guys, be aware...The Google Play GIft card that is available at Grocer chains and Office Supply stores cannot be used against Devise purchases.

I found it hard to believe. Just thought to pass this information.
