Most big digital retailers do holiday deals, and Google Play is no exception. Google surely wants the recipients of new Android phones and tablets to get used to buying things through its storefront as quickly as possible. While that obviously benefits Google, that doesn't mean these deals aren't pretty solid this year. Perhaps the best deal is three months of Google Play Music for $1 -- a deal that'll also include commercial-free videos on YouTube Red and full access to the new YouTube Music app. That deal is comparable with promos Spotify has been running for some time (not to mention the free three months of Apple Music still up for grabs), but sadly you'll need to be a new subscriber to take advantage.

If you can't take advantage of that music deal (or just don't want to) there are still plenty of other ways to save some cash. The new Minecraft: Story Mode game is only 10 cents, down from its usual $4.99 price point. You can also rent any movie in the store for 75 percent off or purchase any single album in the store for 50 percent off, and books are "up to" 80 percent off. Selected in-app purchases will also be heavily discounted by as much as 90 percent, but we're not sure what apps are part of that deal.

These deals are live now, and there should be more beyond these to find if you explore Google Play. It's worth noting that only customers in the US, Canada, UK, France, Germany, Australia, Japan, Brazil and Mexico can take advantage, though -- if you're in one of those countries, get shopping.
