Android Central Stocking StuffersChristmas. Chanukah. Kwanza. Festivus. No matter what you celebrate, December tends to be the month for giving. That goes for us, too, believe it or not. We might occasionally seem like Grinches on the outside, but come the end of the year we come down from Mount Crumpit and descend into Whoville with nothing but the best of intentions to spread Android joy and cheer amongst all the good little boys and girls.

And that brings us to our little helper here on the left. See what she's holding? That'd be a $10 Google Play Gift Card. We've got a stack full of these guys, and every last one is for you. Now doesn't that sound special?

Here's how it's going to work: We're going to give away one card every day this month. We're not stopping at Christmas, oh, no. We're gonna keep going, straight on through Phil's birthday (there's a not so subtle hint) and into New Year's Eve the following day. That's one $10 Google Play Gift Card each day this month.

Plus, each daily winner is going to be eligible to win a free Nexus 4 from us.

Wanna know how to enter?

Here's how we're going to work it. Let's split things up week by week. 

  • Dec. 1-8: Leave a post in the appropriate thread in the Android Central Forums.
  • Dec. 9-15: Subscribe to our YouTube Channel. (You can subscribe now if you want, but only subscriptions during that time frame will count as an entry.)
  • Dec. 16-22: Comment on that day's giveaway blog post. (Look for our hatted friend above.)
  • Dec. 23-31: To be announced. It'll be fun one way or another.

Winners will be notified by e-mail, and we'll announce 'em each week on the blog. We'll pick the grand-prize winner on Jan. 1, 2013.

Now, the semi-bad news: Gift cards are still pretty limited in where they can be used. In other words, this one's pretty much U.S.-only, as far as redeeming the gift cards is concerned. We hate that as much as you do. If that stops our non-U.S. friends from entering, we understand. But we won't let that keep you from being eligible for the grand-prize drawing. So if you win a daily contest, you're entered for the phone, no matter where you live.

And with that, good luck, everybody!
