When it comes to Chromebooks, Google likes greasing the wheels. To entice potential Chromebook purchaers to buy, Google normally offers special deals for Google services, such as bonus Google Play credit or extra storage on Google Drive.
Now, Google is stepping outside of its garden to offer would-be Chromebook buyers a deal that focuses on what they might be doing throughout the holiday season: binge-watching television and movies. Until the end of December, those who purchase a Google Pixelbook, or a Samsung Chromebook Plus or Pro, will receive six free months of Netflix.
Google's offer gives buyers six months of free access to Netflix's $10.99/mo plan—streaming on two screens at once, but only up to high definition, not the ultra high definition streaming of Netflix's more expensive premium plan. (Though Google does allow you to apply the value of its offer—$65.94—to a different Netflix plan if you choose.)
Those who purchase the eligible Chromebooks, or those who recently have, must redeem Google's Netflix offer by December 31. Additionally, those purchasing a Samsung Chromebook Plus or Pro can also enjoy $20 in Google Play credit, a separate offer that also expires at the end of December. All Chromebook owners can still receive 100GB of free storage in their Google Drives for two years as well, provided they redeem Google's regular offer.

PCMag.com recently called the Samsung Chromebook Plus and Google Pixelbook two of the best Chromebooks of 2017. In his review of the Google Pixelbook, Joel Santo Domingo notes that, "if you've already determined you can get everything done on a chromebook, the Pixelbook certainly delivers the prestige factor and is faster than more budget-minded chromebooks."
Samsung's Chromebook Plus, roughly half the price of Google's Pixelbook, "is an attractive option for its premium build and versatile convertible form factor along with its bright, clear screen with more-than-full-HD resolution," Domingo writes. That said, competing Chromebooks—like the Asus Chromebook Flip—give more battery life, more local storage, and faster performance for a slight bump in cost.
