Google Play lets you rent any one movie for 50 percent off, select freebies also offered

Android enthusiasts already know Google doesn’t need a special occasion to put Play Store items on sale, so while Valentine’s Day is a distant memory and music streaming prices are back to normal, film buffs can enjoy a new release on the cheap through March 17.

Every Google account holder is eligible for only one half-off rental of their choice, so select wisely and perhaps don’t settle for bargains like “Spotlight.” The recent best picture Academy Award winner costs a measly $5, whereas a top contender and best adapted screenplay victor, “The Big Short”, typically fetches 15 bucks.

With this limited discount, you can check out Margot Robbie in a bubble bath explaining the 2008 financial crisis (spoiler alert!) at a measly $7.50. Or rent another best picture nominee, “Brooklyn”, for the same $7.50. Or, if you’re a fan of Tina Fey and Amy Poehler’s particular brand of humor, watch “Sisters” for $7.50.

In addition to your one discounted rental, you can also own an exclusive new animated movie called “Bling” with no charge whatsoever. And score Linkin Park’s crowd-pleasing debut album “Hybrid Theory” free as well. Plus, Anderson East’s first major label release, “Delilah”. Even if you don’t know who that is, it won’t cost you anything to give him a listen.

Lastly, a number of “top movies” have their prices reduced on Google Play separate of the half-off rental offer, including “American Sniper”, available for $7 instead of $15, “John Wick” ($8), “Oblivion” ($3), and “Crimson Peak” ($4). You can obviously play all the content on Android phones, tablets, Android TV set-top boxes, and Google Chromecasts.

Adrian has had an insatiable passion for writing since he was in school and found himself writing philosophical essays about the meaning of life and the differences between light and dark beer. Later, he realized this was pretty much his only marketable skill, so he first created a personal blog (in Romanian) and then discovered his true calling, which is writing about all things tech (in English).
