Google’s holiday offers extend to movies: save big on Play rentals

Off from work for a few days for the holidays? School’s out until the new year? Whatever will you do to keep yourself entertained? Sure, that Hoaders marathon isn’t going to watch itself, but maybe you’re interested in something just a tad more engaging (and dare we say, fulfilling) from your media consumption. If you’re looking to outfit your phone, tablet, or home entertainment system with a few new titles, Google’s got you covered, and earlier today we told you about a nice offer going on in the Play Store that aimed to save you 50 percent off the purchase of a new album. It turns out that’s just one component of Google’s latest deals, and you can also save a few bucks on movie rental.

Google’s offering Play Store users the opportunity to save 75 percent on a movie rental this holiday season. Considering rental prices tend to be in the $3 to $5 range already (with a few a little pricier), we’re talking one seriously cheap rental after factoring in these savings.

Maybe the best part of this offer is the scope of its availability: while all too often Google’s deals are limited to US users, this one’s open to movie fans in the US, UK, Canada, Brazil, Mexico, Germany, France, Japan … you can check out the whole list for yourself through the source link below, but believe us when we say it’s pretty extensive. Then you’ve got until January 4 to pick a movie and redeem the offer.

What’s your favorite film to watch this time of year – traditional holiday fare or maybe a guilty pleasure? Let us know in the comments.
