US customers who hit Google Play this morning to order a Nexus 6, were offered a small bonus when ordering their phone – the option to get 6 months of Google Play Music All Access.
It’s a pretty decent bonus for customers in the US (worth up to US$60 all up), but without the phone on-sale here in Australia we can’t tell if it will be offered to Australian customers. Unfortunately the Terms & Conditions attached to the offer don’t bode well with Google advising :
Promotion only open to users who are residents in the United States who have purchased a Nexus 6 in their country of residence on or before December 31, 2014 from Google Play
There’s also bad news if you’ve signed up to Google Play Music All Access in the last 12 months, with those people also ineligible for the deal. There’s quite a few caveats and Google is reserving the right to ultimately change, cancel or amend the offer at any time.
We’ll hopefully see this in Australia as Google tries to push their service to anyone, but it’s not guaranteed.
