Google Play Offering $0.99 Movie Rentals (and Other Discounts) on Thanksgiving

Google unveils holiday season savings on games, apps, books and movies

If spending Thanksgiving watching football and parades doesn't really sound like your kind of fun, Google Play will have you covered. Google Play is offering deals on apps, games, movies, TV shows and books.

If you prefer to purchase your movies instead of renting, Google is chopping 50 percent off fan-favorite Deadpool 2, which rings up at just $9.99.

For the bookworms out there, the Play Store has discounts on both ebooks and audiobooks for the year's best-selling titles. This deal is only good on Thanksgiving, so get all your renting in before passing out from too much turkey.

If streaming video is more your thing, you can find discounts on a wide selection of shows and movies ranging from Game of Thrones to Teen Titans Go! to the Movies. In return you get full downloads of original TV series and movies making it ideal for entertainment when the internet isn't going to be available. While movie rental discounts won't be available until tomorrow, a lot of these deals are already live, so have a look at the Google Play Store to see if anything catches your eye.

Google Play is also offering up to 80 percent off some popular gaming titles and promotions on subscription fitness apps and meditation app Headspace.
