Just a couple weeks ago we brought you news that Google had reached an agreement with AT&T, Verizon, and T-Mobile to replace their Softcard with Google Wallet. We wondered what would happen to Softcard and now we know. It’s being put to pasture and soon. Softcard will officially shut down on March 31st. It gets worse for Softcard customers. As it turns out, the deal was strictly for technology. No Softcard information will be transferred as part of the deal. None of your payment or loyalty cards will be added to Google Wallet, they’ll have to be added manually. Your Softcard account will simply be shut down with the service at the end of the month. Windows Phone users will also lose access, but without replacement.
If you’re affected by this, we’d like to hear from you. Give us a shoutout in the comments or let us know via our social media accounts.
