nexus 7 2013 aa design in hand

With Black Friday and the holiday shopping season just around the corner, retailers are feverishly trying to capture the hearts and wallets of customers with price cuts and promos.

Google is no exception – the company just announced a sweet little promo that will make the Nexus 7 (2013) an even better deal than it already is. “For a limited period”, you get $25 in Play Store credit and free shipping for any version of the popular 7-inch tablet. The promo is called “holiday special” so we expect it to continue up until the end of the year.

Once your Nexus 7 ships, you will receive an email with a code that you can redeem in the Play Store for credit. You can use your $25 for apps, movies, TV shows, music, books, or magazines, but not for hardware.

The deal is not as good as the $50 in Play Store credit that Samsung gives to Note 3 users in the US, but it’s still essentially free money that you can you use to trick your tablet out this holiday season.

There are some other pretty sweet deals for Android tablets this Black Friday that you can check out in our roundup here. There’s also Amazon’s $30 off the Nexus 7 (2013), which combined with free Prime shipping, makes for an attractive offer.

Will you gift an Android tablet this holiday season?
