16GB Nexus 7 buyers getting $50 refund from Google, certain conditions apply
Just the other day, we told you that Asus is ready to offer €30 vouchers to Nexus 7 buyers that purchased the tablet before October 29. That’s when Google introduced the new 32GB Nexus 7 versions and that’s also when the company announced the new pricing structure of the Nexus 7 tablets.
The 8GB version was discontinued and the 16GB took its place to be sold for $199 a pop. The 32GB models will sell at $249 (Wi-Fi version) and $299 (3G model).
Considering all this, Asus decided to give money back to Nexus 7 buyers. But the refund program is only available in Europe and it only applies to Nexus 7 units purchased either from Asus or Google.
Now we learn that Google is also ready to refund money to Nexus 7 buyers that got one before Nexus 7. By “before,” Google means 15 days of the price reduction on Google Play. So if you purchased one on October 13, well, then you’re out of luck:
Nexus 7 (16GB version only) purchases from Devices on Google Play are currently eligible for Price Protection if the purchase was made on or after October 14, 2012. If your purchase is eligible, we’ll refund the difference in price within 14 days of your request.
As for 8GB models that were purchased in the same period, well, you’re out of luck again.
