Google Pay App: Referral Bonus, Target, Walmart+ Subscription Offers

My Money Blog has partnered with CardRatings and Credit-Land for selected credit cards and may receive a commission. All opinions expressed are the author’s alone, and has not been provided nor approved by any of the companies mentioned.

Update: My apologies, Google is changing up the details of these promotions on everyone rather quickly. The referral bonus looks to be decreased and the Target promo is no longer taking new activations. Please assume this post is outdated and go by whatever you see on their website and in-app.

Original (outdated) post:

The newly-redesigned Google Pay app is offering several different incentives for you to try it out. It as available on both Android and Apple iOS devices. First up, if you join via a referral link (open on smartphone), you can get a $21 bonus after you either send $10 to a new friend or pay via a contactless NFC-enabled Android phone. That’s my referral link, but you could next refer another friend and then simply agree to send $10 to each other.

Download the new Google Pay app with my invite link – we’ll both earn $21 when you make your first qualifying payment of $10 or more. While supplies last!

$21 cashback at Target when you make a qualifying $50 transaction at Target or Target.com. As long as you enroll your credit card in Google Pay Rewards first, you don’t even need to pay with Google Pay. You can just pay normally with your linked credit card. It also appears a Target gift card purchase works, so that’s another $21 back on a $50 gift card without changing your spending habits if you already shop at Target.

$30 cash back on Walmart+ annual plan subscription. Walmart+ is the new direct competitor with Amazon Prime, including the free next day and 2-day shipping with no minimum and free grocery deliveries with $35 minimum.

Here are some other deals that caught my eye:

  • 20% cash back at REI (max $50 cash back).
  • 20% cash back at Burger King (max $10 cash back).
  • 20% cash back at Crocs online.
  • 10% cash back at Adidas, HM, Gap, Banana Republic, Asics, and more.

  1. Robert Barker says

    I did not get the $30 cash back on Walmart subscription what do you have to do to get $30 cash back

  2. Robert Barker says

    I did not understand the $35 cashback Walmart subscription what do you have to do to get the cash back?

  3. Robert, for the Walmart+ deal you have to sign up for the annual plan and have the charge go through. Did you sign up for a free trial or the monthly? Walmart+ starts everyone with a free trial. Ifyou’re on the free trial then you have to first cancel the free trial membership. Then after cancelling you can sign up for the annual paid membership.
    I got a Walmart+ cashback deal from another site and thats what I had to do. Others are saying same for this google pay deal.

  4. You might be able to stack deals for Walmart+

    Swagbucks, Dosh and Chase all have incentives and multiple offers might work along with Gpay.

  5. I don’t think you can use a credit card to pay friends. So, not that easy to get $21.

    • Looks like you can pay friends by loading funds for free with bank account or debit card. I was thinking of waiting for the $21 Target cashback and then sending that to a friend, but not sure how long it will take.

  6. For the $21 target cash back deal, can the linked card on file with google pay be a target credit card? Thanks and Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

    Jonathan, this looks dead. In my account the $21 referral offer just changed to variable $1 to $5 for referee.

  8. Sergei Bobyr says

    By the way, the Target offer is also dead.

  9. Sergei Bobyr says

    Jonathan, you should update your post. Google changed the terms again. People will not get $21 as you state since the offer is now variable $1 to $10 for you and $1 to $5 for a friend. Since the link is the same I don’t see how they would honor the previous $21.
