The Google Play Store is offering a great special deal for this Black Friday weekend. Customers entering a special promotion code can save a full half off of the price of any album in the store, including Adele's "25," Justin Bieber's "Purpose" and Taylor Swift's "1989."
With the Black Friday/Thanksgiving weekend finally upon us, Americans are celebrating the holiday in the traditional style — gathering with the family, stuffing their faces, watching football, and of course, shopping for the incredible bargains the weekend usually brings.
This Black Friday weekend, consumers can avail themselves of great deals on technology items in addition to everything from clothing, household goods and, of course, holiday themed decorations and accessories. There are also some great deals on one of the most popular purchases during the holiday shopping season: music.
Verizon customers that were lucky enough to be one of the first 74,000 to sign up have already been treated to a free iTunes gift card valued at $5 this Thanksgiving. The credit can be applied to any song, album or app of the cardholder's choice in the iTunes store. If you didn't snag one of these while they were available, you already missed out, but there's another great promotion for music lovers this weekend for all Google Play store customers.
Through Dec. 1, all buyers are entitled to receive any album offered in the Google Play Store via digital download for half of the regular price. The hottest album by far right now is Adele's "25," which is poised to break historical first week sales records with sales of over 3 million copies. Most of those purchases have been for the full retail price, which is $10.99 in the Google Play Store, but using the special promotion code you can get "25" for just $5.49.
Justin Bieber's recently released "Purpose" is another huge seller this holiday season, and buyers can pick up the set for just $3.99 instead of the regular $7.99. If the Biebs is not your cup of tea, don't worry, you can apply the promotion to any album, old or new in any musical genre, as long as the regular price is less than $15.
