If you're one of the few people who hasn't been following our friends from Thrifter, you may need a reminder that it's Cyber Week! It used to be known as Cyber Monday until literally every company decided these blowout sales events could be held whenever they well please, but I digress. Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and all the other big catchy sales days throughout this time of the year are all part of Cyber Week, and nearly every company or store you can think of will participate.
That includes Google Play, which is celebrating Cyber Week with a huge sale on apps, games, videos, and books. The savings begin today and extend at least through the end of Cyber Monday, which is November 26.
One quick deal we want to point out before getting started: Google is giving out $2 to spend toward any app or game purchase worth $10 or more. This credit is good for in-app purchases, too (subscriptions excluded), so if you've been wanting to stock up on Poké Balls in Pokémon GO or something, now's your chance. You can find if this reward is available to you by going to the Google Play Store menu, tapping Account, then tapping Rewards.
Without further ado, here are all the games you'll find discounted during Cyber Week. We'll be keeping this list updated throughout the week in case any new deals pop up. Take a look!
