It can't quite match three months of Netflix, but Google is rewarding Chromecast buyers with a new bonus for the holidays: $6 in Google Play credit. Starting now and running through December 7th, you'll get the Play credit when purchasing Chromecast from retailers including Amazon, Best Buy, and Google itself. Google says the promotion is good for a free HD movie rental, but you can use the bonus store credit for anything you'd like on Google Play. The offer is "valid for any movie rental or other content on Google Play valued at $6 or less," Google says, though you can't put it towards devices or subscriptions.

With services including Netflix, Hulu Plus, and now HBO Go on board, Chromecast seems to be faring well with consumers. It's the best-selling electronics item on Amazon, where it can be purchased today for $29.99. That's $5 off the Chromecast's regular $35.99 price, and is likely the best deal you'll find for Google's miniature streamer.
