In time with the upcoming Christmas holiday when people opt for movie marathons, Google announced an irresistible offer for future users of its streaming stick. Consumers who will buy Chromecast until Dec. 21 will get $20-worth of credits on Google Play Store.

Search engine giant clearly wanted Chromecast to be the official streaming device for the holiday season as buyers of the gadget will also have two months of free Hulu Plus and three months of free access of Google Play Music All Access.

This Google news came as streaming device competition has been tight almost two years after Chromecast's release. As the device who once dominated the market, Google's Chromecast is now competing with Amazon's Fire Stick and Microsoft's Miracast dongle.

Next year, A Firefox OS-powered streaming device is also rumored for launch and the retailer giant Wal-Mart is also reportedly working on its own Vudu-focused streaming stick.

With the $20-worth of freebies, Google Chromecast is "already a good buy at $35." The deal also allows the device's users to an easier pairing between the streaming stick and the Fire TV stick for the best video streaming experience. Target also offers Chromecast at a very cheap price tag of $22.99. If you minus the $20 credits, the device will cost $2.99.

It is also important to note that the limited time offer will be available for Chromecast owners who bought the device starting Dec. 7 until Dec. 21. Although some previous owners of the streaming stick were also able to take advantage of the deal.

To check if you are eligible for the latest promo of Google for its Chromecast, you can go to chromecast.com/offers. The process of knowing if you can avail the freebies is a bit tricky as well.

"You must (A) be using Chrome, (B) must have the Google Cast extension on your browser, and (C) must be on the same network as your Chromecast."

With almost two years on the video streaming market, Google Chromecast "has gone from nothing to being the #2 video streaming device sold to U.S. customers." This fact is blamed to its $35 price tag.
