The emails, which seemed to have started heading out on Friday, are promising a $50 credit on store.google.com if you can find someone who redeems a code which gives them 15% off the purchase of a Pixel 2 or Pixel 2 XL.
The deal is pretty simple, just share the individual code in the email with a friend, and they get 15% off their Pixel 2 phone and you get $50 in credit to use on the Google Store. The deal runs until July 20th, so there’s a fair bit of time left, with the $50 promo code emailed to you 4-6 weeks after your friend completes the sale – but the $50 must be redeemed by September 15, 2018 or it will expire.
Both the 15% off Promo code, and the $50 code you get can be redeemed by pasting the code into the field in the Checkout once you get to the Google Store.
Even though the email has terms and conditions stating ‘Available only to US residents with shipping addresses in US‘, the discount still applies to Pixel 2 phones in the checkout. Whether that means that the $50 code won’t be applied isn’t really clear. Still, the 15% discount works.
It always pays to shop around for a deal on the Pixel 2, with JB Hifi regularly having specials. Still, if you know someone who wants a discount here’s a good way to get it.
