Google Play sale: $1 for 3 months music, 75% of movie rentals, and more

by: Andrew GrushDecember 23, 2015


Christmas is almost here, followed almost immediately by New Years. It’s the time of the year we celebrate family, friends, and reflect back on the year almost behind us. It’s also the time many retailers offer pretty solid end of year type sales, and the Google Play store is no exception.

From today until January 4th, Google Play is offering several deals including three months of Google Play Music for just $1. That’s basically identical to the 3-month for $1 promotion from Spotify, but Google’s music service has the advantage of including YouTube Red and full access to the YouTube Music app.

YouTube Red 2See also: YouTube Red, Google’s ad-free video service, arrives for just $9.99 per month (Updated)70

One big catch with Google Play Music is that you can’t be an existing subscriber. The good news is that Google still has plenty of other deals that will apply to you. First, a few apps are on sale:

Lastly, Google Play Music, Movies, and Books all have several items on sale. For Books, you can get up to 80% off on select titles. Music is offering albums for half price. As for Movies? Rentals are up to 75% off until the 4th of January.

All of the above promotions are available in US, Canada, UK, France, Germany, Australia, Japan, Brazil, and Mexico. So what do you think, plan on taking advantage of any of these offers?

  • I wish Google Play Music was available for all countries :(

  • Pan

    Can’t find the $1 Google play music offer anywhere. Play store, play music, and the website. I’m in Canada.

    • Jean-Francois Messier

      I’m also in Canada (Ottawa) and was caught the same way. I got the first episode for pennies, but this is only the first episode. Anything else is the same price. This is a teaser, nothing more. At least, I can run the first episode and see from there. But nothing os this was in the article. Sometime, I feel the article is more for advertising/selling more apps than actually giving a good discount to readers.

    • KineticAirbag

      It should be there now. Is for me anyway

  • Muzzy996

    If only this offer applied to gifting subscriptions. Heck even at $5 for a few months I’d gift a subscription out to a bunch of people.

  • Techn9cian46

    I can’t find the $1 for 3 months of GPM…
