Still no reduction in Tesco and other retailers........
Wonder will Google be shamed into extending the refund to retail customers too?
Google, like Asus, will compensate folk who purchased a Nexus 7 just before it reduced the tablet's price, on 29 October. Nexus 7 Unfortunately, the price protection promise only applies to owners who splashed out on or after 14 October, as Google's offer only covers the 15 days before a price cut. Only the 16GB version is …
Not quite - people who bought early direct from Google don't get the refund from Google, and don't get the voucher from Asus.
I bought from Google pre-release because of the £15 play voucher, as I didn't realise retails stores would also have it. So to not be eligible for either offer does annoy me a bit.
I bought my 16gb version on release day and knew what I was getting into. Pay n for x. It seemed good enough at the time that I plunked down the money and I got what I asked for.
I'm an adult and I (try to) make informed decisions, not some whiny entitled baby, though.
As things stand I got the £15 Play store credit AND I get the £25 Asus voucher.
If someone didn't want a 16gb Nexus 7 they shouldn't have bought one and should have waited for something better to get with their money.
Both the play credit, the Asus voucher and the Google 15 day reimbursement are more than generous for a device that's already great value at the price it was offered for sale at originally.
Yeh, well ... I bought my N7 on release day too.
However, I did not know what I was getting into. By purchasing the device direct from Google, I have been financially disadvantaged; I don't qualify for either the Asus £25 or the Google 15 day reimbursement.
It's a great device, but the refund policy has kinda spoilt the experience for me.
Well its just a bit of a slap in the face - buy shiny new gadget, see price reduction within a couple of months after the initial release. Seems a bit unfair and all credit to them for giving out these refund vouchers, even under limited terms. Still happy enough with mine despite these unfavourable events.
