That was quick. Almost 10 days ago (on February 24th), Google and Softcard announced that they had purchased the company's technology and worked out deals with the carriers AT&T, Verizon and T-Mobile for the new service to transfer to Google.
At that time, they indicated that more info would be coming regarding the existing account holders of Softcard. That info was just shared: Google plans to shutter Softcard's operations on March 31st, and will transfer existing customer accounts over to Google Wallet.
Update: According to some new reports from folks here in this thread, it looks like Softcard will not be transferring accounts, but will be closing them. Folks will need to pull their money out and contact Google if they want to get it moved into a Google Wallet account.
