    It doesn't come up on pre-order but as long as you order within timeframe by the 17th you should be good

    The email was a solicitation that had nothing to do with my actual order. It was informing me about a promotion if you order by the 17th. Reading the fine print it looks like it's only for select customers if you are signed up to receive their marketing emails.

    So, does this mean you get a free stand, $50 credit, and 6 months of free YT premium?

    Google isn't giving a free stand. I think that's Verizon.

    The 50 dollar bonus is only if you are opted in to their marketing emails and you sign in with your account.

    Youtube bonus is for new subscribers

    I called in to see about the promotion, and in checking on it they cancelled my order. Not the whole order mind you, just the Pixel 3, hours after I pre-ordered it and I was already slated to get it not until the 25-26th. My Google Home Hub is still on preorder through Google (mostly for my Dad to work in conjunction with the Nest Hello so he can see and respond to who's at the door easier).

    So I left it at that and ordered a Pixel 3 through the My Verizon App. It'll ship on the 18th and is supposed to include the Pixel Stand. I'm still not a fan of wireless charging, but I'll give it another try. Worst case I sell it.

    Wireless charging is great... so convenient and your device doesn't get scratched up by the charging port.

    I can take it or leave it. I had wireless charging during about 3 years back. I like quick charging better. They both have their place. Wireless quick charging would be nice but I have a feeling that might generate a lot of heat.

    I just set it down when I am near a wireless charger and it gets me through the day even on a heavy day. If I need fast I will just plug it in for a few.

    I have wireless charger at home, work, and in the car so I pretty much always have one near.

    That's pretty messed up for not letting people know about that offer. I'm sure tons of people unchecked the marketing emails.

    Samsung has slow and fast wireless charging.

    Heard the note 9 wireless charging has a fan.
    Hope the pixel stand has one.
    Cause if its a fast charger. And you leave it on too long. If its like the Samsung it can get hot.

    I've already detailed the reasons I don't care for wireless charging in another thread, so I'm not going into it again here. Plus I'll have to remove my case before charging since I use magnetic phone holders in my vehicles.

    And my phone isn't scratched up from using the charging port either. Now a lesser man would make a joke about not being able to hit the hole, but that's just not me.

    After seeing issues with first batch of devices (any manufacturer), I did say it is better to play a waiting game.

    It's an incentive designed for people who subscribe to their emails....if you don't subscribe you lose. I don't see a problem with that.
