Google Play 2nd Birthday Deals Now Live in the U.S.

google play birthday

Earlier this week, users around the world began seeing a celebratory second birthday set of deals go live on Google Play. For whatever reason, those deals were not made immediately available to the U.S. market. That has now changed. If you hit up the link below, you’ll be able to join in on the celebration.

In the set of deals, you’ll find everything from free apps to in-app purchase deals and exclusives. There are free songs, cheap albums, cheap books, discounted movies, and more. It doesn’t exactly feel like the 10-cent or 49-cent deals from the past, but they still may be worth a look.

  • ERIFNOMI

    A lot of people in the comments bitching that apps aren’t getting a big enough discount…

  • Cedarson

    Apparently the sale still isn’t live yet. (yes, sarcasm)

  • JRomeo

    I’ve never seen the great gatsby, and I’ve never seen star trek into darkness. so I figure I’d buy both of them since they were on sale.

  • StargateNH

    Not much that interests me in this one.

  • Shatthecat

    The only thing I really am interested in is the FIFA 14 tournament to get the a free premium gold pack, + 5000 coins. Unfortunately, EA released that on Sunday, and I already got it, so really nothing to see in this poor thing called a sale.

    No, I don’t like EA, but FIFA14 is the best soccer game available on Android.

    I’m not a big fan of the apps they Play Store has used in its 2-3 recent celebration of events. I don’t like apps with in app purchases. I liked it better when the app the offered were $0.10, $0.25 or $0.50, ect.

    Picked up Scarface in HD for $10. Maybe I’ll be able to see the scenes that were too dark to see on my old VHS version.

    Woooo what a feast…a celebration for a equally 2 years of a crappy rename of the store

  • Ray

    Horrible selection of a bunch of nothing

  • hoosiercub88

    Meh

  • Synacks

    Is it bad that all I cared about were productivity apps and there was nothing that I wanted?

  • Fredy

    I was really hoping for something good. Maybe next time.

  • moelsen8

    meh

  • Someone

    Have to agree.. this is a terrible sale.

  • ChrisCorp

    That 10-cent app sale was golden! They need to bring that or a 49-cent sale back…not this…

    • duke69111

      I agree completely. I purchased them all when it was like that, even if I didn’t want or need them. I haven’t installed/purchased an app from any of their recent sales. I don’t like the in app purchases.

  • morpheus282

    The extended version of the The Hobbit part 1 for $7… Might have to bite on that one.

    • Jared

      I was about to as well, then found that it is only SD for that price… I was a little disappointed with that.

      • morpheus282

        I already have the standard cut of the film in HD, so I don’t think I’d be too hurt to get the SD version of the extended cut. Still considering it though.

  • Brian

    That “reason” for the delay is that the birthday wasn’t until today, March 6.

  • Beavis

    Man, I remember when there used to be daily deals for a week, and about half the apps where actually good. This is just a random assortment of stuff, and while one or two of them are actually enticing, it’s still a little disappointing.

  • yodatom10

    oh Red2 for 9bucks…. Movie night :D

    • morpheus282

      RED 2 is only $4.

      • yodatom10

        9 bucks to own it

        • jimt

          $1.30 at red box to rent.

        • morpheus282

          I stand corrected. I only noticed the price on the main page and since The Hobbit is $7 to buy I thought RED was the same. I suppose that I should do some fact checking before posting next time, but my current strategy of “publish first, check facts later” works to gain employment at most any modern news outlet…

        • tdurden64111

          Free to ignore it.

  • portrub

    Pretty lame.

    • BigTimmay

      Almost as lame as a Penguins fan?

      Oooooo ;)

      • portrub

        Yep! Lol

    • AnotherAndroidKid

      Very Lame.

  • paul_cus

    Being a cheap Android user, I miss the ten cent sale.

    • EvanTheGamer

      Yeah! Same here. I wonder what ever happened to those sales. :(

      Maybe Google and devs realized they were losing too much money with those sales.

  • Anthony Tyson

    Meh

  • kyle

    this sale is a joke

    • EvanTheGamer

      Yep, couldn’t agree more.

      Where the hell are the great deals on some great apps? Who cares about the discounts of in-app purchases. WTF is this? lol

    • http://twitter.com/geoff5093 Geoff Johnson

      They need another $0.10 sale on tons of apps

    • Inquizitor

      I remember they days when we got quality apps like Swiftkey, Soundhound, and Nova Launcher for 10 cents each. RIP Android Market.

    • Miguel

      Nothing on interest on this one, where are the .10 and .25 apps from last year, unless it’s a daily thing I’m calling this one a flap.

    • michael arazan

      Is this “Happy Birthday” or “April Fools?”

      This is the equivalent of getting a pair of socks as a present.

  • Franklin Ramsey

    The only thing that looks interesting would be the Dr. Seuss books.
