Get $25 in Google Play credit when you buy a Nexus 7 from the Play Store

Google's making it easy to get a few apps or some media for your new Nexus 7

Google wants to make your holiday gift of a Nexus 7 a little bit better, as they are giving away $25 in Google Play credit with a new purchase from Google Play.

Holiday Special: $25 Google Play credit and free shipping.For a limited time, you will receive a $25 Google Play credit when you purchase a Nexus 7 from the Play Store. Your Google Play credit will be emailed when your Nexus 7 ships.

This goes along with free shipping for the tablet, which makes one of the best purchases even better. The offer is good for all sizes, and for LTE or Wifi models. See the Play Store (opens in new tab) for the full details.

If you'd rather not order from the Goog, Amazon also has a pretty good deal going on where you can save 10-percent on any Nexus 7 purchase. Either way, we win.

  • The life of the wife was ended by the wife.
  • They are holding this promotion at Best Buy as well. I just purchased a 2013 Nexus 7 last night and they emailed me a code to redeem the $25.
  • That's weird because I purchased one last night too and they didn't send me the promotion. Bastards! (They did send me one 3 days ago when I bought the WiFi version for my gf though.)
  • Hmm...I ordered one last night and picked it up this morning, and the $25 credit shows on my order confirmation but I have not yet received the code. The order confirmation says it will be emailed to me. I think I'll give it a couple of days then follow up with Best Buy if it doesn't turn up.
  • Best Buy will price match Walmart too.
  • Between these deals, Best Buy, and last week's Staples deal (which I pounced on), it's a good time to buy a tablet. :-) Posted via the awesomest of awesome Android Central App on my Nexus 5
  • What was the Staples deal? Man I have to shop at that place more often! Posted via Android Central App
  • Staples had a $50 off any tablet > $149. That put the N7-2013 at $179. I'm kicking myself for not getting it when I could :(
  • Amazon had some from their warehouse last week. I bought a "like new" and it looks new. even came in original packaging. $175 after tax. 16gb

  • As much as I like the 7, I think I am going to pounce on the 10 and pass this one off somewhere. Gave one of the spawn the junk tablet I bought a year ago, so I guess the 7 goes to the wife..
  • For anybody unaware, the Best Buy deal is Nexus 7 (2013) 16GB for $199 plus get a $25 Google Play code. Got one this past weekend.
  • I paid $229 for my 16GB but got the $25 Play Card last night.
  • Best buy priced matched wal mart for the 32gb at 229.99 and also received the $25 Google play code.
  • I just bought mine (1 week) from staples. I wonder if I can get it anyways
  • I ordered one 1 week ago from Google and now I'm a little ticked off.
  • Another US only offer I see... The rest of the world gets left out yet again! :(
  • What about those who bought it when it came out? Now holiday gift for us? Posted via Android Central App
  • guess not
  • "If you'd rather not order from the Goog, Amazon also has a pretty good deal going on where you can save 10-percent on any Nexus 7 purchase" uhhh, unless I'm not seeing things properly, that amazon purchase is sticking it out at $229.... not $199 (maybe if you buy it USED)
  • For the past few days and at the time of this post, Amazon had the Nexus 7 2013 for $199: http://www.androidcentral.com/amazon-offering-nexus-7-2013-199-conveniently-timed-holiday-shopping Looks like its price has gone back up to $229 since then (looks like they ran out of stock).
  • I bought my nexus 7 a month ago from best buy at regular price...today I decided to go to best buy and have them price match to the wal mart price ($40 less). Not only did they price match it I also got the $25 Google play credit. Win win for me Posted via Android Central App
  • Bought my N7 from Amazon when they had it for $239 flat (no tax). Yeah, Walmart has it for $10 cheaper but once you add tax it is not cheaper. Posted via Android Central App
  • Staples has the Nexus 7 2013 model 16GB for $179, 32GB for 219 and 2012 model 32GB for $129.50 plus tax. Coupon code in-store: 50561, online: 18702. It expires today.
  • Anyone know how long this deal is going to be on for? Posted via Android Central App
