Google’s answer to Apple Pay may have been late to the game, but it’s already leading the way with a new rewards program — and it’s awesome.

Dubbed “Tap 10,” the program offers up free Google Play content simply for using Android Pay on a regular basis, and there’s even a mention of Chromecast giveaways.

Google is yet to make Tap 10 official, but some Android Pay users are already seeing promotional popups on their devices, and you can visit the Tap 10 terms and conditions page for all the details.

The current promotion offers up three free songs of your choice from Google Play Music when you use Android Pay ten times, but it gets much more exciting than that; the terms also mention free apps, movies, subscriptions, and even Chromecasts, which are usually priced at $35.

That’s a sweet reward for just using Android Pay to purchase goods you would have already bought anyway. The program is obviously designed to encourage you to use Android Pay as much as possible, and with freebies like these, it will certainly be successful.

We first heard about an Android Pay rewards program last October, but we knew nothing about it back then. Apple is also expected to be planning a reward program for Apple Pay, but the Cupertino company is yet to make that official.
