Google Throwing in $25 Play Gift Card for Purchasing a Nexus 7 This Holiday Season

If you were thinking of getting someone in your life a Nexus device, Google just went and made the decision a little bit easier for you. Google Play just announced that starting today, purchasing a Nexus 7 also nets you a $25 gift card to the Play Store to spend on awesome things. 

In addition to the gift card, Google is also giving orders starting today free shipping to make sure you can put that money to use on other holiday gifts. The only thing that makes a shiny new Nexus tablet better is having a few dollars to spend on media, apps and games to use on it. No word on how long this promotion will last, but the sooner you get on it, the better.

Anyone on your Christmas list getting this offer?

    Don’t want a 7″, want the Nexus 10″!!

    Is this only if you buy it from Google? I literally just now bought a 16GB one from Staples for $179 with the promo code [ 18702 ] and Free Shipping…plus Tax

    If you’re thinking about using that $25 towards a device, like a Chromecast, think again. I just tried to use the $20 in Play Store credits I got from my two Moto X purchases and they aren’t valid towards devices. Only downloads. I doubt this is any different.

    The $200 deals for the 16GB seem to be happening relatively often, so $30 to spend anywhere beats $25 for Play for me.

    So, my day 1 purchased Nexus 7 2012 just went into what appears to be a permanent boot loop last Friday (suspecting bad nand). Therefore, I am seriously considering buying a new one, but I know that I am getting a new Nexus 7 2013 for my 15 year anniversary at work on January 28th. Not sure if I can wait that long, I may have to buy now and sell my free one later.

    Too bad it’s not like the Samsung deal – register your device, get free stuff. I bought a Nexus 7 for each of my kids and they’re sitting here waiting for Christmas.

    Another one of those times it sucks to have been an early adopter 🙁 But, I have the benefit of owning it for 3 months already 😀

    I just bought my second one two weeks ago 🙁

    Dear Google, a new Nexus 10 please, keep the $25 offer, thanks

  • jmasterj

    Would be more interesting if Amazon, ebay daily deals, etc. didn’t keep coming up with these for $30-$40 off, free shipping, and no tax most places.

    Anyone know if we can redeem the credit from Nexus 7s purchased from other retailers?

  • AtanRaca

    Best Buy is offering the same deal. I picked one up last night and they emailed me the code to redeem the $25.
