If you pre-ordered the Google Pixel or Pixel XL, you more than likely earned yourself a free Daydream View, Google’s mobile VR viewer. Pre-orders through the Google Store and Verizon included the freebie, and we started seeing redemption codes go out last night for some.
In fact, we had two arrive in our inbox last night from Google Store orders. The emails, at least the ones from the Google Store orders, arrive with subject “Here’s your Daydream View promo code.” Inside the emails, you’ll find a promo code and a “REDEEM NOW” button that will take you directly into the store to get your free View. As you add the item to cart and walk-through the checkout process, as long as you pressed the “REDEEM NOW” button in email, you should see the final price dropped to $0.
After placing your order, Google will give you an estimate as to when you should receive the View. Ours both show November 22-24, so a good week or so out.
For Verizon orders, redemption of your free Daydream View happens by filling out a simple form. Head to vzw.com/digitalrebatecenter, use code “GOOGLEGIFT” and your purchase date. From there, fill out the form as requested and you’ll be on your way to receiving you freebie.
