Chromecast-Thumb

Update: Google has since shared a list of retailers from which Canadians can pick up the Chromecast and take advantage of the offer. The options include Amazon, Best Buy, Future Shop, and Google Play.

 

Canadians, don't say Google's never done anything for you. The Big G is now tossing in $20 CAD worth of Play Store credit with the purchase of a Chromecast. This deal applies whether you pick one of the affordable media sticks up from Google Play or opt to hit up another authorized retailer such as Amazon instead. The catch is that you must purchase the Chromecast before June 30th.

Considering the Chromecast currently goes for $39.99 up in the cold white North, this is a nice way to quasi-get half of your money back to spend on music, movies, and other stuff to enjoy on that new device that will soon arrive at your door. Google will deliver the credit in an email after you make the purchase, and you have until July 30th to redeem it. On that day, the deal is over, and unclaimed credit disappears.

    this > netflix deal

    • atlouiedog

      I think that everyone I knew who got in on that deal already subscribed to Netflix so they saved $24, which is more than $20 (well, about $18.50 after conversion).

    But what if you've already purchased one?

      The offer applies to Chromecast units purchased and set up between June 9th and June 30th. Everyone else is out of luck.

        The weird thing is I ordered mine April 20th from Amazon.ca and just got the $20 put into my account from this deal 2 days ago.

  • perfectlyreasonabletoo

    Odd, I'm a Canadian in Canadia and Google says there's no offers available for my location:

      Had this issue here. UK users were meant to get £5 of credit, I bought mine from PC World and didn't get the offer... quite a lot of people didn't.

      Try again. I'm in eastern Canada (Montréal) and I bought mine the first week it was available on Amazon.ca.. Now I have it.
      You have to go on your desktop and go to the site's offer, connect with your Chromecast, then if you're logged in, it'll give you the rebate code that you'll be able to register on the Play Store.
      Good luck...
      Use it, they need to know that we buy goods from them...

          Bug off!!!!

  • silver_arrow

    Wicked. Just picked one up for my dad for fathers day without even knowing this. Pretty awesome of Google to do this.

  • Erik Tomlinson

    This just worked for me even though I bought my Chromecast through Google Play the day they became available to Canadians (i.e. months and months ago). Thanks for pointing it out!!!

  • Alain Lafond

    Canadians, don't say Google's never done anything for you

    Yeah, yeah, yeah...
    True. We have Android, but always a lot later. Sometimes after Europe...

    But this time, thank you Google.
    And thank you Android police.
    Maybe it'll shut me up a bit for a short while complaining about USA centric policy of Google.
    But I don't know why. Knowing that USA is still an Apple garden.
    The rest of the world is Android. Why do we still are late in upgrades.
