Google removes deductible costs from Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL Preferred Care plans
For those not aware, Preferred Care is an optional insurance plan for the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL that extends the scope of their normal warranties by covering accidental damage for two years. So long as you coughed up either a $79 or $99 deductible for the Pixel 2 or Pixel 2 XL, respectively, you would get a new phone sent to you.
What made things a bit confusing was when Google announced that both phones would now come with a two-year warranty worldwide. This led to the question of what would happen to those who took out Preferred Care for either Pixel 2 phone, with Google saying at the time that it would remain unchanged.
Good on you @Google for making the Preferred Care have value again. #teampixel #pixel2xl pic.twitter.com/3BIeocLqRA— Brandon (@thisistechtoday) November 1, 2017
Either way, it seems that Google is intent on following through with its damage control regarding the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, particularly when it comes to the latter. The company has promised that upcoming software updates should solve a good number of issues with the two phones, but we will have to wait and see whether things pan out that way.
