The next time you have a few dollars left on one of those prepaid credit card-based gift cards, consolidate those odd dollars and cents into your Google Wallet account.
Google has detailed steps on adding a credit card to your Google Wallet Balance, which you’ll need to follow to add your prepaid credit card info. Find out how much is left on the prepaid card by following the instructions on the gift card. Usually you have to go to a web site and type in the card’s number.
After you add the prepaid card to your Google Wallet, choose Add to Wallet Balance and then add whatever is left on the card. Google says they’ll charge you a 2.9% fee to do this with a minimum of 30 cents. Until July 16th, 2014 they are waiving that fee for the first $ 250 transferred. That fee waiver or the deadline may not apply to your account, so be sure to check.
