The actual method from the android app is as follows:

Open the chromecast app
  • Wait for the list of devices to populate.
  • Select the relevant device.
  • Wait for the "Connecting to XXXX" dialogue to finish.
  • When all the device info etc pops up, press the menu overflow button.
  • Select "Check for offers" and follow the instructions. (You must agree to send your serial number).
  • It should then allow you to open the play store and redeem the voucher immediately.
From a PC/laptop, you need to try http://www.chromecast.com/offers and follow the instructions.

In both cases you must be connected to the same Wifi network as the relevant chromecast and on a PC/laptop, you need to be using the Chrome browser and have the Google Cast extension installed.

Can't remember offhand whether the Chromecast app reports the serial number. It's also etched on the Chromecast unit itself with higher resolution, but lower contrast. Google must think we're all eagle-eyed.
It doesn't ask for serial number, the app and website check if its vaild

That's a relief, though unfortunate that it refuses to redeem for you.

Thanks for the headsup!

Default No offers

I get no offers found on my chromecast bought from Currys UK chromecast. Is there anyone we can get in touch with to talk about this?

Any way to trick the CC into thinking we are in UK?

HELP so confused
I have a TMobile Note 2 N-7100, its now unlocked to use with my AT&T sim. it shows that i have 4G speeds, i am searching the threads and getting mixed messages about enabling LTE. i came across this http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2068041 but it was non-specific about working on At&t, even though if it works which i have not yet confirmed is there another way to enable it without running the risk of "bricking" my phone?
