    So I just got the new Galaxy tablet for Xmas. With play store gift cards. Here is my problem.. I'm in Canada and the cards were purchased across the border in the USA. Whenever I goto play.Google.com/redeem it redirects me. Now I realize these cards are for the USA market but I was hoping there was a way around this. I was thinking maybe if I try accessing that redeem site through a proxy using a USA ip. Maybe then I won't get redirected. Or maybe if I call customer support. Am I SOL?

    Welcome to AF!!
    I moved your thread to the Google forum and hope you will find an answer here:)

    I would call customer support or contact google somehow to see if you can redeem those gift cards in Canada:)
