  • If you pre-ordered your Google Pixel 3 or Pixel 3 XL from the Google Store, you earned a credit.
  • The credit is $50 for each phone you pre-ordered, and you should see the credit in your Google account now.

If you pre-ordered your Google Pixel 3 or Google Pixel 3 XL from the Google Store, you may not realize it but you earned a $50 Google Store credit. Google didn’t distribute the credit when you pre-ordered or when you received the device; instead, the credits are rolling out now.

As such, if you pre-ordered your Pixel 3, check your Google account to see if you have a credit! Apparently, Google hasn’t sent out email notifications yet to let you know it’s in there.
