Google has announced that it will be shutting off support for its Google Wallet card starting June 30. The prepaid debit card was launched back in November 2013, which allows you to pay for goods in retail stores or online that accepted MasterCard using your Wallet balance. It also facilitates to withdraw money from ATMs.

“You’ll no longer be able to add money to your Wallet Balance after May 1, 2016,” the company said in a blog post. “Any transactions made with your Wallet Card after June 30 will not be processed. Any pending transactions made before June 30 will still post to your account.”

Those looking for alternatives can opt for offerings from American Express or Simple, Google suggests, adding that both offer debit accounts with similar features, including a card. The Mountain View, California-based company has also teamed up these companies allowing you to get an added bonus after signing up.
