Currently, if you happen to pick up a Nexus 7 and activate it, you’re treated to a generous $25 Google Play Store credit for you to spend on apps, games, books, magazines, movies, you get the idea. Since this Android tablet is designed from the ground up for the Play Store, it’s a heck of a buying incentive, bringing your overall cost down from $199 or $249 a healthy amount. This credit doesn’t stop there, it works on all Android devices. Yes, you can use the Play Store credit on content for your smart phone as well.
As the saying goes: all good things must come to an end. Google has announced that the current $25 Google Play credit promotion will end on September 30, 2012. If you haven’t picked up your Nexus 7 and loaded it with free content, your time is running out.

Be careful when adding accounts. It will apply the credit to the FIRST account you add that has a Google Wallet account associated with it, and do this without prompting you. Google will steadfastly refuse to move this credit to another account, even to the account to which the device was registered. Their customer support during this entire process has been horrible and I hope you never have to deal with them as much as I have had to trying to get the issue fixed. Device is great though if you never need to contact them.
