Google Play is ringing in the new year in style, offering a new deal or discount every day between now and January 1st, but this time it’s more than just app discounts that are being offered.

Today’s offering is a free app, and it’s an app that’s always free. It’s called Hotel Tonight, and if you haven’t guessed, it’s main purpose is to find you a hotel for tonight. If that was it, we’d be pretty underwhelmed, but luckily it’s not.

As part of today’s offer, if you download the app, you’ll get a $35 credit toward your first hotel booking. All you have to do is enter Google’s promo code and the discount is yours, so this should also work for those who have already downloaded Hotel Tonight in the past. The offer is only valid today, so hit the link in the sources section below to take advantage while you still can.

The Google Play elves will be offering up a new surprise every day, and if each one is as useful as this, it’s going to be a very interesting two weeks. As long as Google keeps providing cool surprises, we’ll be sharing them, so make sure to check back here daily.

What do you think of the first day’s surprise offer? What would you like to see show up between now and the new year?
