Google is looking to entice Android smartphone users into using their newest mobile payment platform with a new promotion that could net you some pretty cool freebies including a new Chromecast!
The promotion is a rather straight forward and simple one, in order to get users to start making payments with Android Pay,
Google has launched a new promotion called Tap 10. Google is giving
out various rewards in hopes of you making 10 mobile payments before
the end of February. Included in the prizes are songs, movies and
subscriptions from Google Play, and even a Chromecast for those of you that complete all 10 purchases using Android Pay. There are a few requirements you have to meet in order to qualify but those are rather basic.
First the basic details: All payments must be made through the Android Pay app (obviously) and must be completed by 11:59:59 p.m. PT on February 29, 2016. You also have to be over the age of 18 to qualify, sorry kiddos. The App Account Information must also match the information of the participant that completed the act of Tapping, sorry no using someone other persons details to try to earn rewards.
Now the real stuff: Participants who Tap to pay for a purchase at
a contactless terminal at an Android Pay merchant may be eligible for a
Reward. For a list of major participating store merchants go to: http://www.android.com/pay/;
however a participant may Tap to pay for a purchase anywhere Near Field
Communication (“NFC”) payments are available. The only time a Reward
may be provided to a participant is within the first ten (10) Taps
during the Offer Period; once a participant has reached ten (10) Taps,
he/she will no longer be eligible to receive a Reward in this Offer.
Note: Participants who reach ten (10) Taps may continue to use the App
without penalty or issue. All Taps must be at least five (5) minutes
apart to be eligible in this Offer.
Rewards will be sent via a promotional code to the Google Account linked to the individual participant’s App Account. Rewards and promotional codes expire at 11:59:59 p.m. PT on March 31, 2016.
Unused Rewards after 11:59:59 pm. PT on March 31, 2016 will be
forfeited, and no additional compensation will be provided to any
participant. Limit one (1) Reward type per participant. Click here for full rules and details.
So what say you, will this new offer get you out there using Android Pay, or are you still on the fence about mobile payment solutions? Personally I think I might have to add it as an option to my phone even though I don't think I shop at enough locations that accept NFC payments yet.
