Didn’t get your Google Pixel yet? You may be getting a freebie

Bad news: Some of you might be getting your Google Pixel phone late.

Good news: Google may reward you for your trouble!

After receiving high praise from critics – ourselves included –  it appears that Google is having a hard time keeping up with preorders of its brand-new flagship phone.

This has resulted in Google sending out emails to some customers saying that it “may take a little longer” for them to get their Pixel. 

To make good, the company also intends to credit affected customers $50 in Google Play Store credit once their phone finally arrives as a token of appreciation.

While Google’s emails don’t specify by how much its delayed shipment will miss the delivery window, some customers on Reddit have claimed their phone will only be a few days off the original mark.

Patient Pixels

Given that a little extra waiting could result in $50’s worth of apps, movies, music, or YouTube Red, Google’s handout seems like a pretty good deal. 

That said, it’s still not clear exactly how long the average customer will have to wait or who qualifies for the credits, as some users claim they’re still waiting on their credits after their Pixel arrived a couple of days late.

Google has stated that demand for the Pixel has exceeded expectations, resulting in the company working to resupply its wares as soon as possible.

At the time of writing, the larger 5.5-inch display Pixel XL is also selling fast – so much so that it’s currently out of stock in the Google Store and putting interested customers on a waitlist.

We have reached out to Google to learn more about the effect of the reported delays, and will update this story as it develops.
