Valentine's 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:
- Enter Chromecast app
- click on your device name
- Select 3 'dots' on top right hand corner and click "Check for offers"
- Agree to the terms and conditions
- select the promotion and confirm
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.
