THIS EXPLAINS EVERYTHING!
Not really. Everything in that article is old. Nothing contemporary.

Only first $250.
I guess it's still free for me is because I haven't done $250 yet. Just did one or 2 small amounts (under $25).

Haha now now
No need to be mean

So Google was laughing at us, when we were laughing at them. Mr phazlehurst watched as his google wallet product got hundreds of new users daily. He then monitored the conga board to see what the penny requests trickled down. Once he maximized his users (yes with a few people already sending money), he shut the party down.

I just hope that you dont need to get a penny to SHUT you GW account down.....! ;D

Just because people opened accounts, that doesn't mean they will continue using them - particularly not DDF-ers.

Exactly! who in the world is going to pay 3.9% fee when they can use paypal or amazon payments for free? (I'm talking about legit transactions). So now they have all these users, collecting dust. Unless they wanted my DOB and banking info and my real address (for better ad targeting and statistics), if so then they definitely got what they want.

True, my bad. For some reason I remembered that it's free, now I see that it's only free if you use your paypal balance or bank account. But my point still stands, they got all these people to sign up for GW but nobody is going to really use it.

PayPal is free if you use the "send as gift" option. I do it all the time.

Only if the funds are coming from a checking account or pp balance.

Does anyone know if opening a bunch of gmail accounts, sending $250, will trigger google to shut my account down, or trigger an amex F/R?
