Pre-orders for the Nexus 6p and Nexus 5X went live today! The pre-order experience is always pretty intense when it comes to Nexus devices. You know the whole sit in front of your PC and hit F5 repeatedly until your device finally goes on sale?! This is exactly what I did. When the Nexus 6p and 5X finally went live I was pretty stoked. To add to my already giddy spirits Google decided to also give those who pre-order $50 in free Google Play credits. This is an awesome idea. With the free money you are encouraged to order movies, music, games and books. After you see just how incredibly easy it is to order all this stuff it makes you want to order stuff even after your credit expires. I have found this to be the case with my Chromecast gifts. Prior to receiving free movie offers I had not really considered purchasing movie rentals from Google Play, but the process was so seamless that this has been my go to method for renting movies ever since.
I think that this is really what Google is going for. Aside from the free $50 offer you will also receive 3 free months of Google Play music. Hopefully the free Play Music subscription is available for those who have already used a trial subscription in the past. If so that is great news! Which device did everyone preorder?
