Google Play is granting some of its members a free $1 credit today. So hurry up and check your account to see if you got it! You can use your new balance on apps, movies, music, books and more from the Google Play library.
You should see a pop-up when you log into your account saying “A Gift For You – $1 Play Credit”. The credit will expire in September. It appears as though only some google accounts are receiving the credit, but it is unclear why.
Eligibility and Redemption. Google Play Gift Cards (“Gift Cards”) and prepaid Play balance including redeemed Google Play gift cards, credits or gift codes (“Credits”) are valid only for users who are 13 years of age or older, and who are residents of the USA. Gift Cards and Credits are issued by Google Payment Corporation (“GPC”).

Any unused Google Play balance will remain in the recipient’s Google Play balance when redeemed. Google may provide Gift Card and Credit purchasers with information about the redemption status of Gift Cards or Credits that they purchase.
