Google Offering 75% Off Play Movie Rentals As Year-End Deal

December 17, 2015 - Written By Justin Diaz

Everyone loves a good flick, whether it’s a sappy love story or an action-packed thriller, sometimes it’s just nice to sit down and enjoy a little escape from the world around you, and Play Movies had made that pretty easy with not only a wide variety of movies on hand to rent or buy, but the ability to stream them to the big screen thanks to Chromecast. With the holidays coming up next week, Google is giving users a final 2015 deal with the offering of savings, allowing anyone to pick up a movie rental for 75% off as long as they redeem the offer by January 4th, 2016.

This means users will have a little more than a week to find a movie they want to watch and apply the 75% savings, and the best part is that Google is allowing the discount on any movie of the user’s choice. This means any movie within the Play Movies library is included, and to get things rolling and help people narrow down their choice, they have a large list of the most popular movies right now which they figure customers might enjoy seeing. Included in the list that Google themselves have already put together are recent films like Ant-Man, Mission Impossible 5, Minions, Maze Runner, Trainwreck, Mad Max: Fury Road, and others.

As stated though these aren’t the only options available, as Google’s listing page for the discount mentions that any movie on Google Play can be rented at a 75% discount. Unfortunately, though, the discount only applies to movie rentals and not to movie purchases, so if you were looking to pick up an HD film that normally costs $14.99 to buy for $3.75, you’ll be out of luck. The discount is automatically applied at checkout so users need not worry about the price listing on Google Play, and this particular deal is one that is stretched across multiple regions with offers available in the U.S., Canada, Australia, Brazil, the UK, Mexico, France, Russia, Italy, Germany, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Japan, Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, India, and Indonesia. That makes quite the spread of countries who can grab a cheap movie rental. If you’ll have some free time between now and January 4th, now is the time to pick out a movie you’ve been wanting to see.
