(ENDED) Pay $45, Get $50 Google Play Gift Card

This offer expired…

Google and Amazon have a complicated relationship. They are the definition of frenemies on so many levels. Case in point, Amazon is offering a $50 Google Play Gift Card for $45 with free shipping. This is a plastic gift card delivered by mail. Prime members get free 2-day shipping or if it is available in your region, it also qualifies for free 1-day delivery. This is a 10% straight up discount.

Another option this week: 20% back in Plenti Points at Rite Aid
But IF you are a participating in the Plenti rewards program, this shopping week you can get 500 Plenti points back on a $25 Google Play gift card at Rite Aid brick and mortar stores. So you getting 20% back in points, but you pay full price at checkout.

You can’t use Plenti points to buy gift cards, so you can’t roll over the same balance for more gift card promotions. You can spend the Plenti points in future purchases at Rite Aid and other participating locations (eg Exxon-Mobil gas stations, Macy’s, etc). Limit two per customer for this week which expires Saturday 10/21/17.

PRO TIP: Google Play gift cards are a great way to get roundabout discounts on monthly subscriptions that never get discounted. Nowadays you can pay for subscriptions on Google Play using your Google Gift Card Balance, you don’t have to pay using a credit card. So you can load up your Google account with gift cards, and pay for your Netflix and HBO Now and Google Music / YouTube Red and everything else that offers subscriptions through Google Play! You can even pay for the darned “CBS All Access” subscription if you want to watch the new Star Trek: Discovery.
