By now, you’ve likely heard about Android Pay, Google’s tap-and-pay software for mobile payments. Google has been trying some different tactics to encourage usage of Android Pay, with a notable promotion last month in which the company gave $20 Best Buy gift cards to those that tried Android Pay. But now the company is giving customers another incentive to use Android Pay, with Android Pay Rewards.
Android Pay Rewards is a new feature within Android Pay that will reward customers for how often they use Android Pay. On their first tap, they’ll get a free song from Google Play Music. Users will get the same reward on their second and sixth taps. On their 10th tap, however, the rewards really ramp up, with users getting a free Chromecast. Yes, you read that right.
Users will receive a promo code to use in the Google Play Store that will allow them to get their free Chromecast. The promotion runs through February 29, so interested users have a bit of a time to get started with Android Pay. It should be noted that not everyone is seeing the promo yet. It’s arriving as part of the Android Pay update that’s currently rolling, so it may be a couple of days before you see it. When the promo info does appear, it should show up along with your payment, loyalty and gift cards.
