Google’s $35 Chromecast media streamer may be one of the most inexpensive devices you can plug into a TV to watch content from YouTube, Netflix, Hulu, and other sources… but it’s an even better deal when you take into account all the promotional offers Google throws in.
Open up the Chromecast app on your phone or tablet and check the Offers tab right now, and you’ll find that you can get $6 in Google Play Store credit simply for having a Chromecast on your home network. Have two Chromecasts? That’ll get you $12… and so on.
You can use that $6 credit to rent or purchase videos or music… or anything else available from the Google Play Store including apps and games.
Google also likes to offer free or discounted movie rentals periodically, so it’s worth checking that Offers tab on a regular basis.
