If you were thinking of getting (or receiving) a brand new Nexus 7, now may be a good time to start. Google has announced via a tweet they have launched a Nexus 7 promotion in which you get free shipping and $25 worth of Google Play credit.
Running only in the US and Canada at the moment, you will be able to get free ground shipping via UPS on your new purchase of the Nexus 7 (only) and when you receive your receipt via email from Google, you should receive a discount code which you can add to the Google Play store.
This isn’t the first time that Google has done this. When the first Nexus 7 was released, if you registered it within a certain date, you were given a discount code to add to the Google Play Store. I got this when I bought my first Nexus 7 (in the UK, it was an amount of £10).
There is no word from Google as to whether this offer will be extended to any other country soon, or if it’s just a Thanksgiving present for the US and Canada, but rest assured we’ll let you know as soon as we know.
