Last day to get $25 Google Play Store credit with Nexus 7 purchase

by: Kristofer WoukSeptember 30, 2012

If you want to buy a Nexus 7 from Google but haven’t gotten around to doing it, today is a good day to finally pull the trigger. After today, customers who buy the Nexus 7 will no longer get $25 of credit in the Google Play Store along with their purchase.

Those who buy a Nexus 7 today will get $25 of credit toward Google Play Store purchases and an entire year to spend it. If you buy it after today, you’re still getting a cool new tablet, but no free apps to run on it. If you’re still on the fence and you like free things, it’s probably time to buy one.

If you have been eyeing the Nexus 7 for a while, chances are good that you might know the specs, but just in case, here is a refresher. The Nexus 7 includes a 1.3 GHz quad-core Tegra 3 processor, 1 GB of RAM, either 8 or 16 GB of internal storage, a 4325 mAh battery, 1.2-megapixel front-facing camera and a 7-inch HD IPS display at 1280 x 800 and 216 ppi.

The tablet runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and, being a Nexus device, will receive frequent updates. For gadget fans, its nice to know that you won’t be stuck running a dated version of Android while other devices are seeing updates.

The Nexus 7 will cost you $199 for the 8 GB version, and $249 for the 16 GB version. Both devices are for sale in the Google Play Store.

Are you finally going to buy a Nexus 7 today? If not, have you already got one? What did you get with your Nexus 7 Play Store credit?

    I have one but I wanted to buy my wife one for Xmas but I decided to pull the trigger and got it for her today all because I knew that I wouldn’t get the 25 dollar credit!

    Finally took the plunge and bought mine on Friday – that free credit ending was the biggest motivator (was waiting to see if there was going to be a 3G version soon).

    3G or no 3G though, I’m still happy as I’ve got the 16GB version with the free credit for just £180.50 at Tesco Direct (with special 10% off £200 worth of electrical items deal and local self collection from the 1st Oct so no shipping charge too!!). Only £10 more expensive compared to 8GB version + shipping from UK Play Store. :)

    Can’t wait to finally get my N7!
