So it’s been a full year since Google’s Play Store went live (how time does fly,) and the Web-based media store is celebrating by offering deep discounts in all departments. Free tunes, apps, gift cards and cheap movies are only a few items that the service is advertising. You definitely don’t want to miss these deals.

Starting today, you can redeem a free $15 gift card to use on your first purchase from Fancy, the crowd-curated gift shop. Also, ten percent off you next hotel booking from the app, a digital  $20 gift card for use with the Gyft app and a free download of the Breaking Bad pilot episode, to name a few.

This birthday marks one year since the Google Play Store replaced the Android Market as the most trafficked Android app purveyor. The birthday sale is pretty massive; just on the landing page, you’ll see music items, books, movies, magazines and TV downloads, among the aforementioned free gift card opportunities.

We’re expecting Google to add more deals throughout the day and possibly through the week. But for now, check out the sale page and redeem your free download of Velvet Underground’s “Sweet Jane”!
