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.
