Google is giving away a free Chromecast to Android Pay users

You could be the owner of a brand new Chromecast if you actually start to use Android Pay, as Google is giving away its streaming dongle as a reward to some users.

Tap 10 is the company’s latest Android Pay Rewards promotion, and this time it’s asking phone users to make ten transactions through its mobile payments app by February 29.

All of this is an incentive for new users to begin drawing money via Android Pay, which Google hasn’t highlighted nearly as well as Apple did with Apple Pay. This could help close that gap.

Android Pay Rewards fine print

Notably, only US residents are eligible for this Android Pay Rewards promotion, and even then, it might not work. You “may be eligible for a Reward,” offering no guarantee of a reward at all.

In fact, we tried to use it twice today by eating at McDonald’s (for review purposes, of course) and nothing came up. You may have to wait for an update.

Also buried in the terms and conditions is the fact that transactions need to be at least five minutes apart to count. Ordering ten McDonald’s apple pies from back-to-back-t-back is only going to leave you with an angry stomach, not a Chromecast.
