    I installed Google Wallet on my Galaxy Nexus immediately when I got it.
    I used the 10$ pre-paid card that I received the first time I activated it.

    Approximately a week later I exchanged my Nexus for a new one due to the dreaded "banding" or "streaking" on the screen and immediately installed Google Wallet on the new Nexus. Upon opening and activating Google Wallet again I got ANOTHER 10$ pre-paid Google Wallet MasterCard! :eek:

    Has anyone else experienced the same thing?

    The card/account is tied to your actual phone, not just your email.

    So record your IMEI# of your phone if you decide to exchange it! Or don't and enjoy ten bucks again, lol. Nice find!

    Exactly. If you wrote down the card #'s they will be different. Also if you happen to need an exchange and had say $100 on your old GW account you will probally lose it. If you write the card number down and call GW provider you MIGHT get someone to help you retreive your cash. But chances are they will tell you the app is not supported on VZW
