It was just a year ago today that we launched this amazing shop on the interwebs to offer the best in digital content. Since the best parties are the ones that send you home with a present, today we celebrate our birthday with a festive goodie bag full of gifts.
The web giant is offering discounts on music, movies, books, magazines, TV shows, and games. Among the offers are a 10 percent discount with Hotels.com, a $15 gift card from the Google+ Sign-In partner Fancy, 99-cent movie rentals, free song tracks from The Velvet Underground and LCD Soundsystem, and more.

The company also promoted collections like 25 must-own movies, 25 banned books, and the “25 albums that changed the world.”
