Google Play is offering up Blake Shelton’s Bringing Back The Sunshine MP3 Album completely FREE! Keep in mind that you will need to enter a valid credit card or PayPal account information to score this freebie, but you will not be charged anything since your order is free.
UPDATE – Check out this helpful tip left in the comments by reader, Nikki: There is an app on Google Play called Google Opinion Rewards. You’ll take short surveys for Google Play credits…might be nickels and dimes for the 1-2 question surveys, but it puts money into your account so that you don’t have to have your CC or Paypal to checkout to get these free albums. And it really does add up over time…I’ve earned 70 cents this week alone for mere seconds of my time…but $6.29 since I joined 2 months ago. Makes splurging on app purchases, music, etc, no big deal!
