Google Play: Marvel Avengers Comic Book Sale Up to 80% Off

Google Play: Marvel Avengers Comic Book Sale Up to 80% Off

I am loving these Google Play comic deals. This time around there is an up to 80% off Avengers comics sale. You can figure out why, pretty soon the new Avengers II movie is going to be out! Check out a few back-stories, side stories, and more via this sale.

I am not sure what is up with Google play, but the official ‘sale’ page only has nine comics in it. However, a quick search for Avengers on the Google Play store revealed well over 100 comics and comic collections on sale. You really need to check out the ‘all sale’ link.

Let us talk about some of the fantastic deals in this sale. The New Avengers Vol. 1: Everything Dies was $25.48 and is now on sale for $5.09. I have to say that title is rather ominous, but readers seem to like it. As one reviewer says:

Very solid TPB. Read went very quick. Not a knock against it, more of a compliment. Would make a good movie.

If your appetite was wet in Guardians of The Galaxy, get your fill of Thanos in Avengers Vs. Thanos: Volume 1. Originally $25.48, the comic book is also on sale for $5.09. This volume collects comics from different series and different time periods. The volume includes:

  • Iron Man (1968) #55
  • Captain Marvel (1968) #25-30
  • Marvel Feature (1971) #12
  • Daredevil (1964) #105-107
  • Captain Marvel (1968) #31-33
  • Avengers (1963) #125
  • Warlock (1972) #9-11
  • Avengers Annual (1967) #7
  • Marvel Two -In-One Annual #2
  • and material from Logan’s Run #6

Seriously, that is a lot of comics for just over $5. All of these comics feature Thanos as the villain – so they fit together well in the volume. I have to say, I prefer Ronan over Thanos.

If Stan Lee is your idol, then check out his Avengers Masterworks Vol. 1 with Jack Kirby. These two are comic book legends (I need not tell you), and now is an excellent time to get your hands on a fantastic comic book. Originally $17.33, the book is on sale for $5.09.

There are many additional comics in this sale. Prices start at just a few dollars and go up to around $50 like this Avengers Vs. X-Men Companion that was $101.97 and is now $47.72. This massive volume of comics features some of the best stories ever according to some reviewers.

Google Play: Eisner Nominees Up to 66% Off Sale

Posted by on April 24, 2015 at 1:00 PM

Google Play: Eisner Nominees Up to 66% Off Sale

For all my fellow comic geeks out there, The Google Play Store is having another sweet sale. This up to 66% off comic book sale features select Eisner Award Nominees including The Walking Dead, Saga, and The Wicked + The Divine.

I am not one for ‘popular’ comics. In fact, if I know something is popular, I generally steer clear of it (I have still never read Harry Potter…). However, I borrowed the Saga volumes #1 and #2 from the library as I heard they were good. Good is an understatement, they are fantastic! On my recent book exchange in Victoria, I had the opportunity to add the physical copies of Saga vol. #1 and #2 to my collection. However, I am missing #3 and #4. In this sale, Saga, Vol. 3 and Saga, Vol. 4 are each on sale from $15.79 down to $8.41. If you are new to the series, make sure to pick up the earlier volumes as well. They are imperative to understanding the story line.

Now, I have a thing for volumes because it keeps them all neat and tidy, but the single issues are less expensive. Here is a bit of quick math:

  • Volumes (6 issues) = $8.41
  • Single Issues x 6 ($1.04 x 6) = $6.24

To put it another way, a single issue costs you $1.04. If you divide the price of the volumes up into the number of issues they contain, each issue would cost $1.40. Given that, I highly recommend loading up your computer or tablet with single issues. They will cost you less in the end.

The bulk of this sale is single issues and collected volumes of The Walking Dead. I have not read The Walking Dead, but my fellow writer Anna has. She said:

I read The Walking Dead graphic novels a few years ago. I think the order of things was something like this – watched Season 1 of the TV show, then read all the graphic novels I could get my hands on. This meant I was a few seasons ahead of the TV show! The novels were excellent… very dark, as I am sure you can imagine. I felt they were more gory and hard-hitting than the show though, sometimes the TV show tames things down a bit. If you enjoy the TV show at all – get the books! They’re even better, IMO.

As I mentioned, there are both collected volumes (6 comics) and single issues. Honestly, the single issues are a better price than the collected volumes. For example, The Walking Dead, Vol. 1: Days Gone Bye and all the other volumes are on sale for $8.41. However, each single issue of The Walking Dead will cost you only $1.04 – like this first issue The Walking Dead #1.

There are several other great graphic novels on sale too. The art in Pretty Deadly is amazing and the storyline behind The Wicked + The Divine really interests me as well.

If you are unsure if you will like a comic, then view the ‘free sample’ Google offers for each book.

Google Play Store: Up to 90% Off Heroine Comics – Now $2.99

Posted by on April 19, 2015 at 11:42 AM

Google Play Store: Up to 90% Off Heroine Comics   Now $2.99

The Google Play store has a fantastic deal on digital comics. The selection is called “Heroines Who Rule” and features leading ladies from Marvel, DC, and other labels. These digital comics are up to 90% off their usual prices, which means this is a fantastic time to indulge in a new or old favourite.

Some of you may have heard of The Sandman series by Neil Gaiman. It is a legendary graphic novel series that really threw Mr. Gaiman into the spotlight. The Sandman, as you might expect, is primarily about Dream. However, Dream has several siblings, my favourite being Death. Death: The Deluxe Edition is on sale from $30.97 down to just $2.99. This is 324-pages featuring Death in all her glory. You will find beautiful, heartfelt stories and musings about the meaning of life, love, and death. This is my ‘must buy’ pick of the sale.

There are so many good choices that I hardly know where to start. The cover for Captain Marvel Vol. 1: Higher, Further, Faster, More really catches my eye, probably because I could totally cos-play her. This volume – 136 pages – is on sale from $18.35 down to $2.99. I do not know much about Captain Marvel, except she looks gorgeous, badass, and sassy… and this is a great price. Volume one collects comics #1 through #6.

Fables has always been a favourite series of mine – one I have long debated buying but never have. I am attracted to the art of Fables, no matter what volume I read, the art is out of this world beautiful. The colours are also gorgeous – it feels like an old fairy tale. Purchase Fables Vol. 1: Legends in Exile: Volume 1 on sale from $10.32 down to $2.99.

While Death is the best deal of the sale, there are many other volumes of comics on sale from around $15 – $18 marked down to $2.99. I found several X-Men volumes like X-Men Vol. 2: Muertas that was $18.35 and is now $2.99. While X-Men is more of a team, these comic books feature strong leading ladies. You can also find some inspired by TV comic collections like Buffy: Season Ten Volume 1 : New Rules that was $15.99 and is now $2.99

I am incredibly impressed with this sale and happy to be posting about it. I would love to hear comic recommendations from our Moosers, so please comment below!

Free Music From Google Play Store Including Pitbull, Olly Murs, Beyonce & More

Posted by on April 7, 2015 at 10:41 AM

Free Music From Google Play Store Including Pitbull, Olly Murs, Beyonce & More

Refresh your music collection with some of the new tunes. Google Play Store is offering music that was valued at $23.20, but is now completely free. You never know how long a freebie will last, so grab your copies before they are gone.

There is a mix of tracks available free right now. Many of these songs are part of larger albums. When you first click on the link, you will often see the price for the entire album. Scroll down and find the song name to find the free track available with this freebie. Most songs on Google Play run $1.29 per song, so if you take all eight freebies it has a value of $10.32. Here is the current free song selection available:

I have been digging the Olly Murs song Dance With Me Tonight for several weeks now on the radio. It is a peppy song and is great to crank up in the car or for cooking in the kitchen. I also like the deadmau5 song Raise Your Weapon. This song is a mix of dance and pop, and feels like it should be in the next Hunger Games or Divergent movies

There is also one free album currently available that we have not featured before. The album includes 10 free songs and is a mellow rock mix, though I’m not familiar with this group. I would keep this album on my computer for when I am working. If we assume each of these songs is $1.29, the standard price for Google Play music, this album has a value of  $12.90.

To access the free music on the Google Play Store you will need to have a Google account and link a credit card. No money will be placed on your registered card. Google Play always sends you a receipt in your e-mail for the transaction, even for freebies, so you can click with confidence. You can listen to these songs on your computer, or on any Google Play Store enabled device such as Android.

Avigayil’s post from mid-March featured free songs on Google Play,and is worth checking if you missed the post the first time. It looks like most of the bigger mainstream artist have expired, but you can still get the song Boom Clap by Charli XCX and a few mixed albums.

Google Play Store: Free Music from Nickelback, Maroon 5, & More

Google Play Store: Free Music from Nickelback, Maroon 5, & More

The Google Play store has a bunch of free music you can download right now. I found a few completely free albums and a bunch of single songs just free for the taking. Hurry on over as I have no idea how long this offer with last.

I am not familiar with all these artists so I really cannot make recommendations (for most of it) on what is good or not. Music is also highly subjective, so what I like you may think is trash. Here are the albums you can download for free:

Here is a list of the individual tracks you can download for free at the Google Play Store:

As you can see, this is a lengthy list. If you are open to different music genres, then you can download 63 tracks through the above links. That is a hefty freebie when you consider that Google Play Store has a flat rate of $1.29 per song (or better price for albums).

I do not know any of the other artists or bands besides Nickelback and Maroon 5. I might experiment a bit, but I know for sure that I am downloading the Maps song by Maroon 5 and the What Are You Waiting For? song by Nickelback. Those tracks are worth my time to sign in (or sign up) for a Google Play store account. In fact, there are ridiculously good reviews for the new Maroon 5 song. This reviewer gushed:

Adam kills it! I’m not the one to listen to the newest music let alone buy the track only after listening to it only ONCE on the radio. “ain’t nothin I can do” but listen to it on repeat!

If you know some of the other bands, then please drop us a line to give your song recommendations. I love music, but we all have our expertise and certain genres that we are more familiar with than other people.

FREE! 101 Dalmatians II: Patch’s London Adventure @ Google Play Store

Posted by on March 19, 2015 at 9:00 AM

FREE! 101 Dalmatians II: Patch’s London Adventure @ Google Play Store

Free cartoons are always welcome in my house. Grab your copy of 101 Dalmatians II: Patch’s London Adventure free on the Google Play Store.

I cannot imagine having 101 polka dot puppies running around. It sounds like a cute idea if I was visiting someone else’s house! I would much rather watch oodles of puppies for free from the Google Play Store. You can watch this freebie on your computer or on any device compatible with Google Play.

You may have missed this film the first time around as this was a straight to DVD feature. This cartoon originally came out in 2003 as a follow up to the successful 101 Dalmatians.  I did not see this film, but my daughter loved the original 101 Dalmatians and I have no doubt she will enjoy this sequel.

Based on the descriptions of this movie at both IMBD and Amazon.ca, here is the short rundown of the film. We follow Patch who feels like he is not unique. It’s tough being one of 101.  The family moves and Patch is accidently left behind. Spunky Patch takes off and meets his idol from his favourite TV show Thunderbolt.  Together with Thunderbolt and his sidekick Lightning, they attempt to save various citizens disastrously. Thunderbolt believes, thanks to two faced Lightning, he must complete an act of true heroism or be replaced on his show by a younger dog. Cruella De Vil returns and with her sidekicks and includes a new third goon. With much slapstick, she again attempts to steal the puppies. In the end, we learn about the true differences between acting like a hero and being a hero.

This film is a cartoon, not to be confused with the live action 101 Dalmatians or 102 Dalmatians. On the Google Play Store, this movie has four out of five stars and 105 people have rated it. The rating of this film is G. According to Amazon.ca reviews, it would be a good choice for ages 3 and up. I am sure if you have a child who is younger, you can be your own best judge if puppies running from Cruella De Vil is too scary for your little one.

Freebies do not usually last long, so grab this one now. If you already have a google account this is super quick to claim. You will need to have either a credit card or Paypal inputted in your account to claim this freebie, but your account will not be charged. Since I was already signed into my account, I could play the movie in under a minute.

Google Play Store: 88 Billie Holiday Songs for $1.99

Posted by on March 17, 2015 at 3:49 PM

Google Play Store: 88 Billie Holiday Songs for $1.99

Google Play Store has an entire collection of Billie Holiday songs on promotion for just $1.99. Each song would regularly cost $1.29, so this is one heck of a deal.

At this price, you will pay just over 2¢ per song. Even if you just like a couple Billie Holiday songs, at this price it is worth purchasing the entire collection. Just for a little fun with math, if you purchased all 88 songs at their retail price of $1.29, then you would be spending $113.52. That is a lot of money!

Now, I know a bit of Billie Holiday but I am no means an expert. She was an American Jazz singer with quite the voice. While the recording is a bit dated, I find the music pleasant to listen to when in the mood. I generally like a little sprinkle of jazz in the evenings or around dinnertime as background music. It is sultry, relaxing, and elegant all at the same time.

Enjoy such songs as:

  • Easy Living
  • God Bless The Child
  • Solitude
  • I Gotta Right To Sing The Blues
  • Strange Fruit

I think I only have heard one or two of her songs before. However, I listened to the preview of about 10 of these songs before I started this blog post. Her music is quite enjoyable and I hope many of our Moosers like this little deal.

Strange Fruit has a bit of a story behind it. This song deals with racial hatred at a time when speaking about it, especially if you were African American, was taboo and could get you beaten or killed. As one NY Times article says:

“Strange Fruit” became a nightly ritual for Holiday, then one of her most successful records, then one of her signature songs, at least in those places where it was safe to perform. For throughout Holiday’s short life—she died in 1939 at the age of forty-four—the song existed in a kind of artistic quarantine: it could travel, but only to selected places.

It is a song that continues to be revered as it was bold for that time period and is still relevant today when racial prejudices and hatred still continue. This song is unique in her discography, and it requires a couple listens to understand.

Pick up all these songs and more for just $1.99. As the music is digital, no shipping costs either!

Transformers HD Movie FREE @ Google Play Store Now!

Posted by on March 5, 2015 at 3:20 PM

Transformers HD Movie FREE @ Google Play Store Now!

Before time began, there was the Cube and things you have to pay for. Luckily, right now, you can get Transformers or absolutely free in HD quality on the Google Play Store!

I love love love this movie. Who doesn’t? Whether you have never seen it or have seen this first instalment in a series of four films, it’s worth getting just because it’s free!

It may have been released nearly 8 years ago (makes you feel kind of old doesn’t it?) but this movie is slowly turning into a classic must-watch film, especially since the fourth instalment, Age of Extinction, came out as recently as last year. Whether there will be a fifth instalment is still  unclear, but in any case, the very first one is definitely worth watching as I guarantee that you will be fully immersed in the story within the first five minutes.

Here’s a quote from the movie:

Ron Witwicky: [drives past a Porsche dealer] I’ve got a little surprise for you, son.

Sam Witwicky: No, no, no, no! Dad! Oh, you’ve got to be kidding me!

Ron Witwicky: Yeah, I am. You’re not getting a Porsche!

[laughs]

What’s curious is that while the HD version is completely free right now, the SD version is $9.99. Make sure to click on the correct version if you are asked because the SD version wouldn’t even be as good as the high definition one… and you’re definitely going to want to have the best quality of picture for the action-packed scenes… or should I say, iconic scenes like the above? Transformers HD Movie FREE @ Google Play Store Now!

Keep in mind that, as with any Google Play Store freebie, you need to first of all have a Google Play Store account and second of all, have a method of payment linked to the account. You won’t be charged for anything, but you nonetheless need to enter either a credit card, debit card or PayPal account. The PayPal would be my top choice as setting up an account is super easy and you can use it to pay at plenty of online stores now.

Google Play Store: 99¢ Albums – Sam Smith, Drake, & Beck

Posted by on March 4, 2015 at 1:27 PM

Google Play Store: 99¢ Albums   Sam Smith, Drake, & Beck

Google Play Store has discounted three albums from popular artists to only 99¢ each! Given that a single song usually retails for $1.29, this is a hot deal.

The three sale albums are as follows:

Sam Smith – In The Lonely Hour (Google Play Exclusive Deluxe Edition)

I highly recommend this album. Sadly, I just bought three songs from this album on iTunes, paying well over what the entire album would cost on Google. The album includes 15 and earns an overall rating of 4.7/5 on Google Play. My favourite songs are Stay With Me, I’m Not the Only One, and Like I Can. The album has a run time around 50 minutes.

Drake – Nothing Was The Same

This album comes with 13 songs for a total run time of just under one hour. Nothing Was The Same ranks a solid 4.5/5 on the Google rating scale. The album is explicit (watch out little ears) but appears to be well loved. I know nothing about the artist Drake, so if you do please comment.

Beck – Morning Phase

This is another artist I am not terribly familiar with. However, for 99¢ you are receiving 13 songs for a run time of approximately 47 minutes. This album was just released a year ago, so still fairly new. Morning Phase rates 4.3/5 stars, but with less than 800 reviews.

Now, make sure that you get directed to the Google Play store for Canada. These albums are full price at the US store right now. I found that Sam Smith’s album (only one I am personally interested in) retails for $10.49 US. I also price compared these digital albums to iTunes. Here is what you would expect to pay for each album currently on iTunes:

  • In The Lonely Hour – $7.99
  • Nothing Was the Same – $6.99 (E)
  • Morning Phase – $6.99

The Nothing Was the Same album was hard to price compare, as there are four different versions on iTunes! But I picked the one that matched the one on Google closest. There is a ‘clean’ version of this album but that is not the one being sold for 99¢ on the Google Play Store.

If you need a little inspiration, I have attached a YouTube video of Sam Smith singing Like I Can:

Six Free Songs from Brit Awards @ Google Play

Posted by on March 1, 2015 at 4:05 PM

Six Free Songs from Brit Awards @ Google Play

Google Play is giving out six free songs in celebration of the Brit Awards. For those of you not familiar, the Brit Awards are the British equivalent of the American Grammy Awards.

I am very pleased with this giveaway as the songs are not from obscure artists that no one has ever heard about these days. Rather, you are getting popular songs from major artists. All of these songs were recorded live at the BRITs.

Here is the list of songs you can download for free:

  • Sam Smith – Lay Me Down
  • Ed Sheeran – Bloodstream
  • George Ezra – Budapest
  • Paloma Faith – Only Love Can Hurt Like This
  • Royal Blood – Figure It Out
  • Take That – Let In The Sun

I only know the first two artists in the list. For me, this is such fortunate timing. While I was introduced to Sam Smith a bit ago, I only found out that he was the artist behind a few of my currently favourite songs. I will certainly be downloading Lay Me Down, as it is not a song I currently have. Sam Smith’s voice is amazing and I love the heart and soul he pours into his music.

Ed Sheeran only came onto my radar a month ago. A friend of mine, who loves music as much as I do, was sending me song suggestions and I was sending him suggestions too. In one way, we were playing “do you know this band” and in another, we were genuinely interested in introducing each other to new music. Ed Sheeran was a first for me as Royal Wood was a first for my friend.

This is a great list of songs, though I cannot vouch for the other artists. I suggest trying them all because free music is great. It does not cost you a cent and you can always delete the file if you do not like the song.

Download The Catching Fire eBook for Free @ Google Play Canada

Posted by on February 18, 2015 at 2:09 PM

Download The Catching Fire eBook for Free @ Google Play Canada

Hey Hunger Games fans, check out this offer from Google Play. For a limited time, you can download the Catching Fire eBook by Suzanne Collins for completely free from the Google Play Store. Catching Fire is the second book of the Hunger Game trilogy, and is definitely worth a read. Even better, you can download the Google Play Store on any device to enjoy this freebie.

With my lifestyle it is hard to make time to sit down and read a book. Even though I can be quite busy, I still made time to read the entire Hunger Games trilogy. Actually, I found this book hard to put down. If you have yet to read these books, or perhaps would read them again, then now is the time. Right now the Google Play Store Canada is offering the second book of Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins, Catching Fire, for free. This eBook would have normally cost you $12.99. You can download the Google Play Store on any device to take advantage of the offer.

The best part about eBooks is the convenience. Take out your cell phone or tablet wherever you may be and start reading. You don’t have to worry about carrying around heavy books, or finishing your book half way through your train ride anymore. The Kindle edition of this book is on sale for $8.24 Amazon.ca right now, so getting it for free from Google Play is great.

Here is one of the customer reviews on the Catching Fire eBook:

I forced myself to read this book slowly, over the course of three days, because I just couldn’t stand that it had to end. WOW. Given how much I loved The Hunger Games, I didn’t think it was possible for Catching Fire to live up to my expectations. This eBook exceeded them. In all my speculations on where Collins was going to take Katniss and Peeta, I didn’t even get close. I’m going to try very hard to stay away from any spoilers here.

Not only is the Catching Fire eBook available for free, but the other two books of this Hunger Game trilogy are discounted greatly. You can get The Hunger Games eBook from Google Play for just $2.35 instead of the original price which was $12.99. The third and final eBook, Mockingjay, is also on sale from $12.99 down to $6.50. You can choose to get a “free sample” of either of these books, but I warn you,  you will be left wanting more.

Valentine’s Day Free $6 Google Credit with Chromecast

Posted by on February 8, 2015 at 4:00 PM

Valentines Day Free $6 Google Credit with Chromecast

If you own the Google Chromecast, then you can receive $6 free Google Credit for Valentine’s Day. Either head over to The Chromecast offers page online or else access this offer on your mobile device.

The steps are simple. Check for available offers and redeem the offer for $6 worth of Google Credit. $6 is enough to order a movie rental from the Google store for this Valentine’s Day. Snuggle up with your loved one with a few candles, popcorn, chocolate, wine, and a good movie.

I do not have my Chromecast connected to my computer yet, so I redeemed the offer straight from my phone. Here are the steps for mobile phone and tablet users:

  1. Enter Chromecast app
  2. click on your device name
  3. Select 3 ‘dots’ on top right hand corner and click “Check for offers”
  4. Agree to the terms and conditions
  5. select the promotion and confirm

Valentines Day Free $6 Google Credit with Chromecast

You can see the free Google Play credit offer right on the left. This following picture is a screen shot from my phone that I took before I redeemed the offer. This is what the offer will look like on your screen.

While this credit is under the guise of a movie rental, it can be used for music, app purchases, and more. It just goes into the generic pile of Google Play credit you already have. I bought the Google Chrome for $29 around Boxing Day when they still had the free $20 Google credit deal. Add on this $6 of Google Play credit and I will nearly have received as much credit as I paid for the device.

The credit expires in two years from the start of this promotion (5th February 2017), so try not to horde it.

I have never used Google Play credit before, so I am curious if it can be used against in-app purchases. Do any of our Moosers have any experience with this? My partner is addicted to Injustice: Gods Amoung Us. I was thinking of purchasing some in-app credit for him with the Google Play credit I am getting from the Chromecast.

Personally, I love the Google Chromecast and often recommend it to my friends. Just last night I used it to watch about an hour worth of educational (Vsauce) YouTube videos.

12 FREE Songs @ Google Play Store (Lorde, deadmau5, Miley, Coldplay, Daft Punk & More!)

Posted by on January 6, 2015 at 6:00 PM

12 FREE Songs @ Google Play Store (Lorde, deadmau5, Miley, Coldplay, Daft Punk & More!)

How many of you download your music, shows and movies? Okay, don’t actually answer that but whether you do or don’t, any opportunity at free songs should be one that you shouldn’t miss! Right now, the Google Play Store is offering 12 songs for free by popular artists like Miley Cyrus, Lorde, deadmau5, Paramore and a couple of others.

Once you click over to the Google Play Store’s page to get the free songs, you will see a selection of 12 images. Upon seeing these, I first thought that maybe full albums were available (if only!) but in fact, the cover photos displayed are either for the individual songs available for free or for the full album. If you see the name of the song in the picture, then you will only see that specific song once you click over but if you see the name of the full album, then you will also be able to buy the rest of the songs in that artist’s given album for $1.29 per song.

Here is the full list of all the songs that you can get for free:

  • Get Lucky by Daft Punk feat. Pharrell
  • Let Your Hair Down by MAGIC!
  • Royals by Lorde
  • A Sky Full of Stars by Coldplay
  • American Kids by Kenny Chesney
  • Ghosts ‘n’ Stuff by deadmau5
  • Delirious (Boneless) by Steve Aoki
  • Ain’t It Fun by Paramore
  • Timber by Pitbull feat. Ke$ha
  • Not A Bad Thing by Justin Timberlake
  • Problem by Ariana Grande
  • Wrecking Ball by Miley Cyrus

To get these free songs, you will need to first have a Google Play Store account and you will also need to add a payment method. The songs don’t cost anything, so it’s slightly perplexing as to why you would need to even add a payment method, especially since when it prompts you to do so, it will say: “$0.00″ but in any case, at lease you will get them for free! The good news is that if you don’t want to add a credit or debit card to your account, then you can link a PayPal account instead.

Moosers, what is your favourite song out of the ones available for free?

Google Play: FREE Download of Kelly Clarkson Greatest Hits (21 Songs)

Posted by on December 31, 2014 at 4:30 PM

Google Play: FREE Download of Kelly Clarkson Greatest Hits (21 Songs)

I have never considered myself a Kelly Clarkson fan; she was always a bit too country for me. However, her song Because of You strikes a deep chord with me. That song is just one of the 21 songs you will receive for free when you download your free copy of Kelly Clarkson’s Greatest Hits – Chapter One from the Google Play store.

Just for a little price comparing, I looked up the same album on iTunes. The album is on sale for $6.99 at iTunes right now as part of their holiday markdown. So at minimum, you are receive a $7 freebie. Each song would cost you $1.29 if purchased individually, so the highest value you are saving is $27.09 if you were ever to buy an album song by song.

The album includes some popular songs that I recognize:

  • Because of You
  • Since U Been Gone
  • Never Again
  • Mr. Know It All
  • Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You)

There is also a nice little I’ll Be Home for Christmas to expand your holiday music collection Kelly Clarkson style. I will not list all the songs on this album (as you can just click through and see yourself) but I am rather jealous of this freebie. iTunes cancelled their 12 Days of Christmas, which usually starts on December 26th, so I am not getting an free music, videos, or more from iTunes this year. You android users are really getting the best freebies lately between this and the free Christmas albums that Google Play gave away as well. They also gave away an entire movie – it makes a girl want an android phone!

The album has great reviews including this one:

This album has her greatest hits its just amazing and if there is songs you don’t like you will grow to love them. I did.

Most the negative reviews are from people who do not like her as an artist and then complain about the music. I say if you do not like her, just do not download her album and stop leaving bad reviews.

FYI: you will need to verify ‘payment’ information when you checkout, but you will NOT be charged anything as long as the album says FREE.

Freebie Alert: National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation Free on Google Play

Freebie Alert: National Lampoons Christmas Vacation Free on Google Play

Free on Google Play today you can get the HD digital copy of National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation just in time for a holiday movie night.

“Where do you think you’re going? Nobody’s leaving. Nobody’s walking out on this fun, old-fashioned family Christmas. No, no. We’re all in this together. This is a full-blown, four-alarm holiday emergency here.”

Poor Clark Griswald just wants the best holiday ever. If you have not seen this classic movie from 1989 you are missing the “the most fun-filled old fashioned family Christmas ever”.  The good news is today you can get it free and watch this holiday classic from any tablet, computer or Google play enabled device. To get this deal you will need a Google account.

You’ll also need to link a credit card, debit card, gift card or PayPal account but no charges will take place. Sneaky Google thinks if you have a card on file you’ll rent an extra movie or two.

This PG rated 1989 classic stares Chevy Chase as the dad who just wants a good old-fashioned Christmas. Plans do not always goes as we hope and Christmas just does not seem to run smoothly for Dad Clark, his wife Ellen and two kids. Things get even worse when the obnoxious relatives arrive, but Clark knows his Christmas bonus will still make it the best Christmas ever.

The National Lampoon’s series pokes a lot of comedic fun at family dysfunction and their holiday special does not disappoint.  While the first two National Lampoon films send the family on vacation trips, this one keeps them closer to home. You do not need to have seen the first two films to enjoy the film. This movie stands alone on its own though the rest of the films are classic comedies also.

Users on IMBD love this classic film including this review:

This is the one Christmas movie that I don’t anyone can ever get tired of. Chevy Chase returns in the third installment of the Vacation series as Clarke W. Griswold as he tries desperately to maintain his sanity during the holidays with all of his relatives coming to stay under his roof and enduring all the mishaps along the way. This is the funniest film in the series plain and simple. Chevy Chase has never been better. Christmas Vacation is filled with countless jokes and gags that it’s impossible not to laugh.

This movie is rated PG so I’d use discretion as a parent. There is a fair amount of cursing in the film. I would throw this on the TV after the littlest ones are in bed, grab some spiked eggnog and laugh my butt off.
