It's been a year since Google shed the Android Market name in favor of Google Play. As questionable as the rebranding may have been, Google has decided to celebrate the change with special promotions for all types of content in Google Play, as well as some real-world rewards.
The Google Play Team announced the "Our Gifts To You" promotion that offers several free TV episodes, bonuses to stores, and discounts on other purchases. The promotion will last for the remainder of the week and will feature things like:
- 99 cent movie rentals
- 99-cent magazine purchases
- Book purchases for only $5
- Music album purchases for $3.99 to $6.99
- Free single TV episodes
- Heavily discounted in-game purchases for virtual goods
Google offers discounts and gifts for items outside of Google Play. For instance, users who download the Hotels.com app can save 10 percent off their next booking. Fancy offers a $15 gift card with first purchase, and Gyft offers $20 gift cards to various big box retailers. Full information is available at the Google Play Birthday promotion landing page.source: Google
