Google's Chromecast is quite the remarkable little device. Its small form factor is only matched by its small price as this is a unit that typically retails for only $35. In fact, Google is often running promotions where you can pick up one or even two Chromecasts even cheaper. Therefore, the value on offer with the Chromecast is literally incomparable to the other streaming devices on the market. This is likely one of the reasons as to why Chromecast has been selling so well as it packs a powerful punch while offering incredible value.
That said, it is not only the at the point of purchase where the value on offer becomes apparent with Chromecast. This is also a product which Google routinely packs in additional after-purchase savings. Like for instance a free movie or free Google Play credits to be redeemed against movies. While this latest promotion is not quite in that league, it is still close enough and certainly worth checking out if you routinely rent movies from Google Play.
The latest offer sees Google dropping the price of a movie rental by 75-percent. Recently the company had been offering 50-percent off a movie promotion, so this one is a step up from that one. To get 75-percent off any movie rental, just head to the 'offers' section of the Chromecast app and redeem the offer. Alternatively, you can also redeem the offer through a browser by heading over to the Chromecast offers site (source link below) and connecting to your Chromecast. As far as the details go, this is a U.S. only promotion and is only redeemable by owners of Chromecast. Which should make sense as this is a movie-related promotion so it stands to reason that the audio-focused Chromecast is not part of the deal. The best bit is that you have until January 31st of next year to actually use the credit. So if there is nothing you currently want to watch on Google Play, it will be one which can be stockpiled and used well past Christmas.
