    Folks,

    Google has a great promotion right now (not sure if the carrier partners are doing it also), in that when you buy a Pixel or Pixel XL you get a coupon for a free Daydream View! I took advantage of this offer. I'm not going to say this was the deciding factor, BUT it certainly helped push me over the top! Plus the special Google financing. And I have always loved their Nexus phones.

    So did anyone else take this offer? Anyone else excited to get their Pixel (or Pixel XL) and then Daydream?

    I think this is an awesome offer for pre ordering, given the retail price of the daydream view!

    Sadly, I'm holding off on getting a Pixel... So no daydream view for me, yet 😁 .

    Interesting story about Google fiance and in stark contrast to Apple fiance, who always approve me ASAP and have done so for a $2000 iMac, and $1300 MacBook, Google fiance gave me trouble. So I applied at the initial time of purchase and was told they could not approve me just I would get a response in 7 to 10 days. I was like "WTF!" So about a week later I went back to the site, and my phone was still in the cart, so I tried Google fiance again and was told I was approved, and to just select that as my payment method which I did. So I try to complete the transaction and DECLINED! So I'm like "WTF!" But they provided a number to call. The phone line informed me that I was approved for 400 dollars credit. "Why da (cuss word) would I even want 400 dollars of credit?" "I'm trying to get a 700 dollar phone!" So I tried to get the automatic system to increase my credit limit, but I was declined! At this point I'm seeing red! I have a credit score of over 700, and my income while I won't type it, is more than enough. So I ask for a live operator. FINALLY success, he was able to get my credit increased to 800 and cover the cost of the phone.

    However it really left a bad taste in my mouth for Google. And/Or Symphony Bank!

    Actually in all reviews people have talked about how the pixel wouldn't looked so good in Daydream view. Why is that?

    I did. After the pre-order and am billed I'm suppose to receive a voucher in the email.

    My Pixel XL has already shipped, so as I understand it I should get an email about the Daydream in a few weeks.

    So, I'm confused... Are you getting married to Google or Apple? :-) J/K.

    All jokes aside, Yea... Financing is usually a headache... I didn't even want to consider that route.

    So was this only for people who pre-ordered or is this offer still available if people buy a Pixel now?

    I want to kick my old windows phone up the wall. I'm not the kind to update my phone regularly and neither are MS anymore. Stupid things like going on fb and part of the screen is missing.
    If I ever win one it's gonna be hammer time! Literally.
    Na I'd give it to one of my older brothers.
    I digress but I thought I would make you all feel better about your phones.

    I believe it's just pre-orders. HOWEVER I went to check at the Google site, and the damn thing is totally soldout right now!

    Well, what is the value of the coupon? Total of Daydream View price?

    It surely sounds very enticing.

    Your experience, pkcable, is exactly what I've been afraid of. I don't have excellent credit right now and don't have enough money to cover the entire cost of the phone. So if you had all those hassles, I'm pretty sure I'd be declined also, lol.

    Plus every time I've looked, they've been sold out of XL 128 GB in pretty much any color. And going with the 32 GB version wouldn't work for me.

    It doesn't really matter now because with the phone sold out they really don't need to offer it any promotional for now.
