    It looks like people who ordered it yesterday or this afternoon, ordered it in time, as the Netflix offer is ending.

    So glad I bought mine on day one!

    How does this affect other retailers though? Do they have their own allotment of Netflix promo codes?

    From what i have been hearing, I think the offer being terminated is universal, it probably is what Netflix had allotted, so once 3pm PT comes and goes today, that's it.

    I bought mine yesterday from Amazon while they had the promo. The offer was even on the product page, so I hope not.

    I don't think this change will affect orders already placed. Every retailer has been advertising the Netflix deal. I don't think they can just back out of it if you already bought a Chromecast.

    Netflix just got Googled! That must have been some deal Google offered them for 3/mo free for all of these initial purchases (that lasted all of 1 day).

    I got the email with my Netflix code. I ordered mine through Google before the show was even over, though.

    Since I don't see any BestBuy.com orders mentioned on here, I'll jump in.

    I ordered via BestBuy.com yesterday at 6:05 PM EDT. I received my "order has shipped" notice about 12 PM (EDT) today and received my Netflix promo code about 5:30 PM (EDT) today.

    I don't have my Cast yet. Should I just go ahead and enter the code now, or wait until I actually have the Cast (so I can maximize the 90 days)??

    Maximize the 90 days? You do realize that you can watch Netflix without a Chromecast, right?

    I bought mine from Best Buy retail store at 1:33pm today. The Netflix code was printed on the same receipt.
    (the code was also automatically emailed to my email address that Best Buy RewardZone had on file)

    My friend just came back from the same store. She bought it at 6:30pm and the Netflix code still got printed.

    I ordered a total of seven (7) on Thursday, in two batches. Five in the first order, two in the second order, about 20 minutes later. I got five codes for the first batch which we'll be giving away with all five of those Chromecasts, btw and zero for the other two. (And nada for the two I got today from Amazon.)

    Have you actually picked it up in person yet? I think Best Buy doesn't consider the purchase "complete" until the product is picked up by a real person.

    Ordered mine from Amazon yesterday around 1, but they never sent me the code. Looks like I have to contact Amazon about where the code may be.

    Same exact situation here. Hopefully the code is in my "digital locker" when the Chromecast arrives.

    On Amazon now:

    Netflix Promotion No Longer Available

    Please note that the Netflix promotional offer (which was available in limited supply) has now ended. Customers who ordered their Chromecast prior to 5:31 PM PST on July 24, 2013 will receive a Netflix gift code via email within 5 days of their product's ship date.
    I know for sure they were still listing the promo (at minimum) several hours after that time. I fear there will be some folks who think they are getting a code and may not.
