Google Offering Free Shipping And $25 Play Store Credit To New Nexus 7 Buyers

November 26, 2013 - Written By Justin Diaz

The worlds best 7 inch tablet just got even better. Just like they did with the original Nexus 7(2012) edition back when it was released last year, Google is at it again for the holidays with this years Nexus 7 (2013) edition giving buyers $25 in play store credit if they order a tablet during this limited time offer. Google has not specified a date for the end of this promotion, but it’s most likely not going last past the end of December.

Not only is Google Providing you with free play store money, but they are also completely waiving shipping costs for everyone that purchases the Nexus 7 during this promotion. Hows that for a holiday deal? This deal is not limited to either size, so you can pick up both the nexus 7 16GB and 32GB models for this promotion and still get the $25 and free shipping. This deal is limited however to US and Canada residents as it stands currently, and there’s no mention of whether or not they’ll update this holiday deal for other countries. Hopefully those of you outside the US or Canada will get some sort of a deal like this. Until than, no free play store credit for you. Sorry Tom Dawson!!!

As for the details on the Google Play Store gift card, you have to apply the gift card to your Google Wallet account by or on March 31st of 2014 to get the $25 credit applied. So don’t go mucking about and waste time. Once you have the money in your Google Wallet account you have all the way until March 31st the following year to use it, and if you don’t you lose it. As always, the credit can only be used for apps, games, books, movies, music, and the like. You can’t use the credit towards devices or accessories, or use it for subscriptions. So yes, you still have to pay out of pocket for your monthly subscription to home and garden(Alex) and no free months of Google Play Music All Access. While Google is probably well equipped for the mass amount of orders they’re are about to receive, you might want to hurry and place yours if you want to ensure getting one as part of the promo.Google-Play-Banner-Get-it-On-Large1
