Have a Chromecast or Android TV? Claim your $6 of Google Play Store credit (US only)
When it comes to streaming devices, you can’t get much better value than with the Chromecast. This little HDMI dongle is only $35! What could make it better? Well, the Google Play Store is often handing out freebies and deals for Cast users. If you have a Chromecast or Android TV device you will want to continue reading, as we are about to tell you how to get $6 of Google Play Store credit for free!
Let’s start by telling you a bit about the promotion first. Just like last February, the Google Play Store is offering $6 of Google Play Store credit to any Cast user, whether he/she owns a Chromecast or Android TV. This does extend to multiple devices, so if you happen to have a couple Cast-enabled gadgets you will be entitled to $12.
Each device has to be associated with your account. So far it does seem to be a US-only offer, but nothing is stopping you from trying. It also seems to work with all Android TVs, at least according to online reports so far.
How to get my $6 of Google Play Store credit
Want to cash in on this deal? The process is super simple! There are two ways to redeem this offer: through the Chrome browser and through the web.
