Discounts galore: Google launches Google Play Surprise Calendar Countdown

The Google Play elves have launched a new promotion. Called the Google Play Surprise Calendar Countdown, the promotion launched on Monday.

Every day -- from Monday, Dec. 17 through Jan. 1, 2013, Google Play will have a surprise. It's similar to other promotions that Google has run in its Play Store in the past. Often though, these promotions were tied to milestones in Google Play. This one is all about the holidays.

In addition, Google's promotion could be quite a bit better than selling $0.99 apps for $0.10. Here's what it says on the first day:
Welcome to the first day of Google Play's surprise calendar countdown! Don't forget to return each day through 1/1/2013 for a special free or discount offer to you, direct from Google Play.

Today only: download Hotel Tonight and get $35 to use toward your first hotel booking! Hotel Tonight lets you book great same-day rooms at top-rated hotels in over 70 destinations across the globe. To redeem, enter promo code: Google35.

Come back tomorrow for another Apps, Books, Movies, TV or Music surprise!
A $35 deal is a pretty good one. Hotel Tonight has a 4.4 star rating in Google Play with over 5,500 ratings.

There is also a version of Hotel Tonight in the iOS App Store. There the app is free and has a 4.5 star rating overall, but insufficient ratings for the current version.
