If you recently purchased a Chromebook (or have had one for years) and you don't know about Chromebook perks, you're missing out.

Google offers special perks to every Chromebook device, from free subscriptions and permanent game copies to significant discounts on popular apps and services. Plus, the company regularly slots in new perks, so if no perks look interesting to you right now, check back in a few months!

Some perks are reserved for new Chromebook users or Chromebook Plus devices only, but most perks are available to every Chromebook user. Regardless of your Chromebook type, here's how to redeem your perks.

How to redeem your free Chromebook perks

To redeem most Chromebook perks, you can follow these simple steps:
