For a limited time, you can pick up a Nexus Player from Amazon and receive a $20 credit to Google Play for whatever you would like to download. This would also be a good time to announce that the Nexus Player is on sale through Amazon Prime for just $70, down from its usual price of $99.
Nexus Player is Google’s first commercial release of Android TV, a platform which turns any TV with an HDMI port into a smart TV with access to Google Play, Music, YouTube, Games, and much more.
Considering the price reduction, and the free $20 credit, this is a pretty good deal if venturing into Android TV is on your bucket list.

Amazon is hosting another one of those deals on a big bundle of apps that will cost you nothing. Today’s haul totals $105 and includes a handful of good apps like Wolfram|Alpha, the original Plants vs. Zombies, Runtastic Pro, and Osmos HD.

All of the cards have read speeds up to 95MB/s.
