Did you get a Nook for Christmas? Well, Barnes & Noble thanks you for helping to keep its beleaguered tablet business alive for another quarter. As thanks, it wants to give you a little gift before the holidays are officially over.

Barnes & Noble announced today that all new Nook device owners will get $5 credit which can be used on anything in the store, from books and movies to apps and games. To redeem your credit, you just have to activate your new Nook by setting up an account on the device.

“Nook tablets and eReaders continue to be big hits with kids and adults who want the best experience for digital content, and we are welcoming all of the new Nook owners with $5 to help get their library started,” said Jim Hilt, Vice President of eBooks at Barnes & Noble. “Barnes & Noble is also offering great post-holiday values on the leading digital content, making now the best time for customers to load their new Nook device with books, magazines, apps, movies and more.”

To help you buy something with that $5 in credit, Barnes & Noble says that the bestselling Nook titles are half off for a limited time. Some of the books included in the sale are Dan Brown's Inerno and Stephen King's Doctor Sleep. In addition to the book sale, Nook customers can also subscribe to two magazines for the price of one.

There's no word on when the $5 credit offer expires, but you might want to pick up a Nook sooner rather than later if you want to take advantage of this admittedly meager offer.
