Did you buy the cards in Canada?

There are ways to use the US-only Google services in Canada. You'll need a VPN service or DNS service to make your computer look like it's in the US when you go to the Google Wallet site.

The same service is also useful for getting the US version of Netflix in Canada so it's worth learning how to do it. Note: very few of these services are free, and the ones that are are deathly slow. But you only need it to get the account set up, once you have it you can use it without the VPN.

Talk to your local IT expert. Maybe your kids. :)
