The Amazon bargains I mentioned in last week’s Weekend Deals? (certain books or albums available for just a quarter) Those are thanks to Amazon price-matching promotions from the new competitor Google Play.
For a week, Google has been offering $.25 deals each day on one ebook, app, album, and movie rental.
“Now your favorite music, books, movies, apps, and games are all in one place that’s accessible from the Web and any Android device. Discover, buy and share like never before.”
Today’s the final day if you want any of the following for $.25:
I have picked up Kitchen Confidential by Anthony Bourdain, Own the Night by Lady Antebellum, Mylo Xyloto by Coldplay, The Giver by Lois Lowry, and Guns N’ Roses Greatest Hits for a grand total of $1.25.
While this promotion is ending, the competition between Google and Amazon will probably lead to some more price-matching good deals in the future.
