Google Play Store Offering $1 Off Some In-App Purchases

If you haven’t checked into the Google Play Store over the weekend and are a player of games like Candy Crush Saga or Clash of Clans, you may want to take a peek.  Over the weekend, Google started a $1 off promotion on in-app purchases on a handful of games.  The promotion ends on February 28.

There are five games that you can get the $1 discount on throughout this month:

  • Candy Crush Saga
  • Clash of Clans
  • Candy Crush Soda Saga
  • Gardenscapes
  • Clash of Kings

To get the discount, you just need to accept the promotion within the Google Play Store, then open one of the games and make an in-app purchase.  The $1 discount will be applied prior to completing the purchase.

These types of promotions are not unheard of by Google and developers but they often are in the holiday season and over the course of the summer.  You don’t see them too often in February.   Still, for those who love these games, it is a nice incentive to make a purchase to help get you further along in the game.

Along with this promotion, the Google Play Store also has a few others going on that may be of interest:

  • 20% off for 3 months on Showtime
  • 25% off for the first three months for the World of Peppa Pig educational game
  • Up to 70% off in-app purchases in Coffee Meets Bagel dating app

All of these promotions should be showing up in the carousel at the top of the Play Store app when you open it up.
