Deal: get $100 of Google Play credit with the purchase of an HTC One M9
Faced with disappointing sales and disastrous stock performance, HTC is doing its best to move some One M9 units off the shelves. This time around, the company is offering $100 in Google Play credit with the purchase of a new HTC One M9.

Customers who will purchase a new HTC One M9 from the company's website will get $100 of Google Play credit to use as they see fit. Note that customers who will get the handset through their carrier or from a third-party retailer will not qualify for the $100 free credit. The deal is valid from now until October 31 and is only available in the United States.

$100 may not be much, especially since you won't be getting your hands on the actual money, but some may find it a pretty sweet incentive to purchase the HTC One M9. Although most app developers have migrated towards free apps, the number of In-App Purchases has spiked over the past year or so, which means that you'll finally be able to purchase that cool new skin for your character - or about a hundred of them. Alternatively, you can use the credit to rent movies from Google Play: at $6 a piece, $100 will last you for about 16 high-definition movies.

On top of the $100 free Google Play credit, HTC will also throw in its free insurance program. Called UH-OH Protection, the insurance will allow you to replace your handset for free in case you broke it. UH-OH Protection is the best smartphone insurance program you can get at the moment.
