Default Thinking about an N7? Get it before 9/30 to get the free $25 credit

Just a heads up, Google just announced the free $25 Play store credit with purchase of an N7 will be ending on 9/30, so if you are thinking about getting one, think faster...

Google Play credit on Nexus 7 - Google Play Help

Quote:
Eligibility
The $25 Google Play credit offer ends September 30, 2012.
As another note, you will have a year from that date to use your existing balance, all Play credit balances from this promotion expire on 9/30/2013

Tipped that for you. I asked them to give you credit if they do post it on Phandroid.

No need to fight over it, you both got credit.
I think I have just a couple bucks left, but I'll use them soon.

What are some of the better apps to buy? I already have Titanium Backup Pro, but I was thinking Light Flow Pro for my GNex (btw does the N7 have a notification light?). I would prefer to use the credit on utilities rather than games

If you have the credit, you won't lose it. They just won't be giving it to folks that buy the tab after 9/30.

As far as lightflow goes, I have it and love it on my GNex. The N7 doesn't have a notification led, but you can use it to manage notification sounds on the N7.

I'm not a TiBu user, so I'll defer on this to someone else. Let me check some of my other paid apps and see if there is anything else worthwhile.

Yeah, per my post, you have another year before you lose the credit. So take your time. Hopefully there are some good app sales near the end of the year.

The $25.00 credit wasn't a deciding factor in my purchase but it was a nice bonus. I'm not a power user and still have over $11.00 left in my account that will take a while to use up. For someone that has a need for power apps that $25.00 credit will come in real handy.

A LED control app on an N7 would be a big waste, I'm assuming you'd use it on another device.

Beautiful Widgets on the other hand is a worthy spend of the credit.

I'm still sitting on $20 of my credit, I just can't find anything I want/need. I did use some of the credit and donated to the beta Falcon twitter widget. That thing is awesome.

Help! When I first set up my N7, I was given the option of adding a credit card (and getting the $25) later when I made a purchase. However, I just made a purchase in Play and didn't get the $25. Any ideas?

Update: I can't seem to find Transformers, either.
