Google Play offering up specials all weekend long

For the long holiday weekend in the U.S., Google is offering up a lot of special deals in the Google Play Store. Most of the discounts are available starting today and will run through Cyber Monday on November 27th although a couple offers are scheduled for specific days.

One of the leading genres of apps available in the Play Store are games and Google hopes their offerings do not disappoint. They are offering discounts of up to 80 percent on premium games. Some of the titles include Call of Duty: Black Ops Zombies which is going for $2.99 instead of the normal $6.99, the LEGO Jurassic World game selling for 99 cents instead of the normal $4.99 and Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions selling for $3.99 instead of $9.99.

For music lovers, Google is offering a free four-month subscription to Google Play Music. That appears to be applicable only to new subscribers. As someone who has done a free trial in the past, Google was only offering me a two-month free trial subscription.

Meanwhile, when it comes to movies and TV shows, the Play Store will be offering 50 percent off any single movie title being purchased or 25 percent off an entire TV season. This deal will not start until November 23rd. On Saturday, November 25th, Play Store customers can rent any movie for one day for 99 cents.

Finally, in the book section of the Play Store, buyers will find they can grab a $5 credit toward any book that costs more than $5 along with discounts on different titles. A special one day offer on Saturday will see several comic books offered for $5 or less.

Be sure to keep an eye on the Play Store over the holiday and big shopping weekend to take advantage of these specials. If you are looking for something more tangible, you may want to check out our own TalkAndroid Holiday Gift Guide 2017 for some ideas.
