Google offering 3 months of Disney+/Stadia Pro, 100GB of Dropbox/Google One, and more for Chromebook users
Chromebooks are some of the best bang for the buck laptops the average consumer can get if all they need is a safe, secure, and speedy PC to browse the web, work on documents on the go, and watch some videos. Chrome OS is no longer as web-centric as it used to be since they added a lot of offline functionality, Android apps, Linux apps, and soon, full-fledged Windows apps. Just in case you’re still not completely sold on getting a Chromebook, Google is continuously offering various incentives to get you to dive into the ecosystem, and they all seem pretty awesome.
Two of the bigger promotions are 3 free months each of two popular subscription services: Disney+ and Stadia Pro. We’re sure you’re familiar with both, but in case you aren’t, here’s a recap. Disney+ is a Netflix-like streaming video service that allows you to stream all of your favorite Disney, Marvel, and more. After 3 months of this promotion, you’ll have to pay only $6.99 a month. Stadia is Google’s cloud game streaming service that allows you to play games like PUBG on your Chromebook, so long as you have a stable and fast Internet connection. It is free to join but you’ll have to pay for each game you want to play (though the $9.99/month Stadia Pro subscription will get you free games each month).
Not all Chromebooks come with a lot of storage, so Google is also offering free trials to popular cloud storage services: 100GB on Dropbox and 100GB on your Google account through Google One. Both of these offers are available for 12 months, after which you’ll have to pay monthly fees to both to keep using the extra storage.
Other perks include:
- a $20 discount towards Stadia Premiere Edition (only applicable for Google’s in-house Pixelbook/Pixelbook Go/Pixel Slate)
- a copy of The Fall of the Dark Brotherhood story expansion for The Elder Scrolls: Legends for free
- a copy of Stardew Valley for free
- 30 days of free Calm Premium
- a free in-app item pack for Fallout Shelter
- a copy of Duet Display for free
- 1 year of free VSCO membership
- 6 months of free Squid Premium
Many of these perks aren’t new (though the Stadia one is brand new), but we know that many people don’t routinely check the perks page for new promotions. So if you haven’t been keeping up with what promotions are available to claim, check them out right here.
