    I use the OtterBox Defender for my Galaxy Nexus. Yeah, it costs $50, but it works. A quick story: The Defender includes a belt holster, which I managed to lose. I emailed OtterBox asking the cost for me to replace just the holster. About 5 minutes later a response email popped up with a No Charge invoice for a whole new case/holster! I called their customer service just to verify what I was seeing was true. Yep, they replaced it because I lost it. It is a USA company, Ft. Collins, CO with customer service reps whose first language is English.
    OtterBox, on a previous phone, protected it when I dropped it onto a concrete drive from the top of a ladder, and on another occasion when slammed the hood of a car on my phone. The hood bounced back up and left no mark whatsoever on the phone or case. It costs more, but with my history, I need the best.

    Thank you all who have posted here. If it were not for this thread I would have paid in full for an extra battery. Even though I did not get my GNex from Sprint (craigslist), the sales rep over the phone was extremely helpful in ordering the battery for me. Only paid shipping. Of course I did not mention how I got the phone, just that I had it activated last month at a store and was not aware of the promotion. It wasn't a lie, just not telling the whole truth . She did not ask how I got it anyway so no harm done. Now as soon as I get my pogo pins from Hong Kong, I'll be making my own landscape desktop dock. Too bad I couldn't get Sammy's for free too.

    Sprint actually doesn't care where you got your phone from. It's sprint branded, and valid on your account. As long as you didn't tell them you found it on the street, it's all good
    Check your bill, you'll most likely see a credit for what you paid for shipping. Even better deal than we thought.

    Still a good offer!

    I just got my Galaxy Nexus yesterday, got a good deal through bestbuy, and after perusing the forums and seeing everyone talking about the battery, I figured I would give it a shot. Two calls later, my extended battery is on its way for right at $14 with shipping and taxes.

    * Navigate to accessories and add the battery pack
    * Enter promo code BATTERY1
    * Check out (at this point, it may ask you for zipcode, and if it does, enter it - and then, instead of selecting a phone, navigate to accessories and re-add the battery pack (and enter the promo code BATTERY1)
    * Check out - total should be free, and shipping should be free too. You will need to enter a credit card though. (also will need to re-enter the employee information - above)

    Will it get processed or canceled? I don't know. I tried it and got a confirmation Email. Hopefully it will ship. If not, hopefully I will get the one I ordered from telesales yesterday.
    This worked for me: $7.86. Thanks! Hopefully it gets shipped. We'll see.

    Update: it shipped! It'll be here in 3 days.

    I ended up with 3 of the batteries. got my first one when the promo began. two weeks later I bought my Son a Gnex and called to get the extended battery for his. the sales person said, looks like you have 2 galaxy nexus on your account? I replied "Yes" and they said "we will be shipping you two of the batteries."

    I saw no reason to argue with them that I had only called for one.

    That is the procedure I used, shipping was $6.50. For some reason they sent me two of the batteries with covers. I'm not complaining

    I got mine. Shipping was $12, but oh well. Sales didn't want to give it to me because I got my GNex from Amazon ($49.99 at the moment), but retentions talked them into it.

    The extended back is needed, but it's hardly a different, so if I ever decide on a cover, I don't expect it to be an issue (I'll still probably check first though). I usually dislike covers though.

    I got my phone from Amazon too and I didn't have a problem.

    When did you do it? The promotion apparently ended almost 2 weeks ago.

    I got my free battery a few days ago however it did cost me like 14 bucks for shipping which is pretty ridiculous.

    Anyways the battery does last noticeably longer than the stock 1850 though don't expect any miracles.

    I went for a run yesterday listening to spotify (offline) and using endomondo run tracker. Battery was fully charged when I left and after about 1 hr 30 min it was down to 65%. The rub tracker uses GPS but still that's a huge drain in such a short time.

    I will get used to it and will start carrying an extra battery.

    Just wanted to chime in, I also used Dereck_B's procedure. I ordered last Tuesday, picked the cheapest shipping, and it was here on Friday. I have definitely noticed a difference. Took my phone off the charger ~ 9AM Saturday and around 1PM yesterday (~28 hours) I still had 40%. It's well worth it, in my eyes. Bought it from Swappa, so I don't think it matters where you got it from.
