It appears that Google is beginning to email YouTube Red subscribers an offer which will get them a free Chromecast if they follow a certain process through the online Google Store. Of course, it’s usually clear just what kind of subscribers (either old or new) get these kinds of offers, however as Android Authority reports, both kinds of payers are getting this very email:
Thanks for being a part of YouTube Red
Here’s a gift we hope you’ll love. Now through June 19, 2016, claim your very own Chromecast from YouTube Red. It’s on us! No strings attached, just a little treat for being one of the first people to join the party.
With Chromecast, you get a bigger picture. Simply plug it in and stream any YouTube song or video directly from your phone, tablet, or computer to your TV. We hear YouTube Red members love being able to watch ad-free videos on TV, so we thought we’d help you get started.
Follow these steps to claim your Chromecast before time runs out:
Hit the button above.
In the upper right corner, click “Choose Options.”
Don’t worry. The discount will be applied at checkout.
Thanks again for being a YouTube Red member. And happy watching!
If this is enough to convince you to sign up for the premium YouTube service, hold your horses. It appears that this email is being sent to random subscribers of Red, so the only thing you can do to make sure you get your free Chromecast is to pray.
