    Default Google Wallet Gift Cards

    Google Wallet help says I should be able to add gift cards to my app on my nexus 4, but in the app, i see no button to do so. It says it should be on the home screen of the app, but i can't find it there. Anyone have any insight on this? thanks.

    You're right, it looks like the option has been removed with the recent Wallet application update. On the main Wallet screen, it should show you your Funding Method, which is the currently-selected card. I'll include a shot of it below. Tap on that, and you'll see a horizontally-scrolling view of the cards you've added. To the left of your cards is a placeholder card used to add more cards. To the right used to be a placeholder card used to add gift cards.

    Interesting... Thanks for the insight. I'm hoping they add that feature back in soon, but somehow I doubt it.

    I think now you have to add the gift card as normal card and it will identify it as gift or rewards card.

    go here and click the first picture it shows the gift and reward card.

    Hmm no I don't think that's how you do it, and those buttons just don't show up in the most recent version of wallet, apparently.

    I tried that. It wants the billing information (address, name, etc.) for it as a credit card, and it won't let me enter it. It's just for debit/credit cards.
