Google is expecting to juice holiday sales of Chromebooks by turning on a subscription to the hot current streaming service, Disney+.
The company on Monday stated that it would provide Chromebook buyers three free months of Disney+ with the buying of new devices.
Mainly, the deal is legitimate for Chromebooks purchased between November 25, 2019, and January 21, 2020, or while stocks last.
Plus the free streaming offer has to be obtained by January 31, 2020, Google informs us.
Buyers will need to obtain the offer by way of the Chromebooks Offers Site, where they will get a promo code.
After downloading the Disney+ app from the Play Store on their Chromebook, users will next create an account, allow the Disney+ Subscriber Agreement, later click “Redeem Code” at checkout.
See that you are accepting of an ongoing subscription here; if you only need the three free months, you will require to cancel before the subscription auto-renews.
The promotion is not only a nice perk for Chromebook owners, however.
Marketing partnerships like this are supporting Disney instantly to get its latest streaming service into customers’ hands.
And giveaway chances like this further helps consumers to get over their primary hesitation about adding on still another subscription to their monthly expenses.
For now, it is free.
Also, Disney, of course, hopes you will forget to cancel later on and start paying or recognize the value in the subscription after the free time ends.
This is not the original big promo for Disney+ following its introduction.
Disney & Verizon
Disney had previously partnered with Verizon on a larger deal, which gave current and existing Verizon Wireless consumers on unlimited plans for a full year of Disney+ for free.
Disney stated that it signed up 10 million consumers for Disney+ within the first day of its extensive international launch.
That is higher than other streamers involving CBS All Access + Showtime, ESPN+, HBO NOW, and others.
Google is marketing a wide range of Chromebooks on its site before the holidays, beginning with sub-$200 primary models, all the way up to its high-end Pixelbook at $999.
It is worth seeing that only new Chromebooks fit for the Disney+ deal if you are pulling up a refurb or purchasing used from an online classified ad, you are out of luck.
Disney+ is $6.99 per month after the promo expires.
