Google Play counting down to the New Year with surprise daily deals

Google Play counting down to the New Year with surprise daily deals
The holiday season is in full swing, and that always means deals. Last year, the Google Play Store (then still known as the Android Market) held a sale honoring its 10 billion app download milestone. This year, Google is going more traditional and will be counting down the days until New Years with surprise daily deals on apps, music, books, movies, and TV.

Today kicks off the deals with the Hotel Tonight app. It's a solid app that is similar to Priceline's hotel deal finder, but it is specifically geared towards finding you a great price on a hotel room for tonight. The idea is that hotels have unsold rooms, and drop the price, sometimes considerably, at around noon each day for rooms that night. Hotel Tonight aggregates those deals to help you out. And, the special deal is that you can get an extra $35 off your first stay using the app if you download it today and use Google's offer code. Not a bad deal, if you're looking for a hotel room. 

Tomorrow will bring a new deal on something in the Play Store, and there will be one new deal each day until January 1st, so check back and we'll let you know what's happening.
