Buy Chromecast and get $6 Google Play credit

For just one week, Google is offering shoppers credit when they purchase the wireless Web-to-TV device that streams Netflix, HBO Go, Hulu Plus, and more.


In the spirit of Black Friday, Google is offering shoppers credit if they buy the Chromecast video dongle within the next week.

Between Friday and December 7, a Chromecast purchase will get users a $6 credit on Google Play that can be used for an HD movie rental or anything else in the online store. The credit cannot be used toward a discount on devices or subscriptions -- it's only for items $6 or less.

To get the deal, shoppers can buy Chromecast at several retailers, including Amazon, Best Buy, and on Google Play.

Google's Chromecast is like a more limited version of an Apple TV or Roku. It's a small wireless video dongle that streams Netflix, YouTube, HBO Go, Hulu Plus, Pandora, and Chrome to television sets using Android or iOS tablets as remotes. It retails for $35.
