Chromecast Offers Free £20 Credit and Movie Rental

110
Found 16th Nov 2015
Just checked the Chromecast Offers app after buying a new Chromecast and saw four offers available:

Free £20 Credit if you've just bought a Chromecast
90 Days Free Google Play Music Subscription
2 Month Free NowTV Pass
Free Movie Rental via Google Play Store

I've been able to add in both the free £20 and the Free Movie rental!

To check if you've got it too:
Open the Chomecast App
Select your Device
Click on the Settings button and then 'Check for Offers' and it will take you to a page showing what you're eligible for.

This is *NOT* for the Audio version of Chromecast, it's for the HDMI version!

​You can spend it on anything that Google play offers.

It's not because it's a launch version, it's because it's meant for the non-audio version!

I have a non-audio launch version and this worked fine for me. I now have £20 credit in my Google play!

Thankfully you don't have to enter any card details or anything to add it to your account, so double thumbs up!

Are you sure you can use it on apps? It clearly says 'movie' credit..
anyone know if you get these deals for buying a new cast even if you have already got on me (and used the deals)? Chromecast deals are great there are fro time to time free movies etc that pop up so its worth checking regularly even once youve cashed these in.

​I've done that before, just stopped the auto renew in the account I have now. Once it expires, open the chromecast offer and it'll add in the free pass onto your account

​Yeah! Exactly what I did. Had a first gen one, bought the new one to add to another telly and it's given it to me, so I presume it'd work for yoy too

​yup, just bought some books and games with it.
Thanks for posting OP. Defo glad I bought a new Chromecast now (hadn't noticed much difference to the old one tbh, but it's nice to have one on both TVs).
Nice. The offer doesn't show for me, but I've had mine for ages and redeemed similar offers before.

One thing I did notice was that I could redeem the free movie rental offer, even though I used it last month to rent a movie that cost 15 quid!
Thanks OP. Managed to get the £20 credit with my V2 Chromecast I bought last month.
£20 credit, 2 months movies on NowTV (great for Christmas) and movie rental as well. That'll do nicely.
Nice offer op, I got this on mine the other day but have just purchased one for a Christmas present, does this have a use by date?
Is it "Free £20 Credit" or "Free £20 Movie Credit". I quickly ordered one seeing this post, but seems like I have missed it?
I nearly forgot to power up my old first-gen Chromecast to grab a second movie rental.

​the offer says movie credit, like in the screen shot but all it does is add £20 to your play account for you to use as you please
So if i grab today and set it up next week a Chromecast V2 ill still be eligible for this offer effectively making the device free ?

​yep. free if you can find one at about 20gbp and were going to spend 20gbp in play store in anycase. if you weren't going to spend 20gbp the it ain't free no matter how. much credit they give you cause that's money you wouldn't have spent
BTW. does anyone know if the credit times out?

mrdtb is right. however, I personally find buying chromecast in UK is no brainer. I bought mine from wuaki Tv for £27 which gives me one of the latest movie. then every now and then, chromecast give offers like this. Google play credit £20 is very generous. last time on v1 was only £5. then 1 free movie rental, 3 months Google music, and then 2 months now TV. when you got such offer, quickly use them as they will have new batch of offers which applies to your existing chromecast. on v1, I got approx 3 batches of offers already. true that if you don't intend to buy things on Google play, your money shifted to an object that you will never purchase on the first place but I personally find the movies (now TV, crunchy rolls, free rental) are useful, giving me the access to all new movies throughout the year. for that, I find chromecast is really well worthed.
Redeamed yesterday - adds £20 to Googleplay account so can use for anything as far as I can see. Heat added.
Could not get the £20 , but have had my 2 chromecasts for ages , but got the movies and free rental..............this will be the third or fourth time I have had these .............cheers OP for reminding me to check.........

Remember you can cancel your now movies immediately and the offer is still active for the 2 months
It's £20 movie credit.. just saying, might want to have this in the title. I was thinking this might be a good deal for £20 credit for games etc, but not just for streaming movies.
OK, so you can spend the credit on anything? can anyone confirm?
Anything on the play store apart from hardware.

​I've been able to buy apps and books. Works across the entire play store
Cool, thanks guys

Probably won't use it much, but it's another device to play around with and is ultra portable for use when traveling etc

What can be done with the £20 credit?


Not a bloody lot
You can also use the credit to pay for things in games - I.e. buy Gold packs in Real Racing 3.
Are there any apps which allow you to stream uk TV? such as tvcatchup?
Well I have the v1 Chromecast so I'm not eligible for the £20 cashback but I'm glad this post prompted me to check my offers again because I've got 2 months of NowTV movies and a free Play movie rental. I'm really chuffed considering all the free offers I have had since I bought it. It only cost £18 and it just keeps giving.
