    I spoke with a fi rep via chat today and they say "The promotional coupon emails are delayed. We are working diligently to ensure all qualified customers receive their coupon credit emails in a timely manner."

    I hope it's soon as I would like to get a case for my new 5x!
    The credit can't be used for hardware unfortunately.

    Oh, too bad - so really it's just the 50% off coupon waiting on. I wonder if the credit can be used for a Play Music subscription or is it just for apps, books, movies, tv, (e.g. digital content)?

    here's the fine print:
    "*Good for one $50 credit toward your Google Play™ balance with the purchase of a Nexus 6P or Nexus 5X purchased on the Google Store in the US from September 29, 2015 to October 25, 2015. A promo code will be emailed after the device ships. Google Play credit is not reloadable and has no cash value. Google Play credit must be added to a Google Wallet account by December 31, 2015. Once added, credit must be used on Google Play by October 25, 2016. Google Play credit cannot be used on the Google Store. Some subscriptions excluded. Must be 13+ years old and have existing or activate new Google Wallet account. Promotional offer available while Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X supplies last, no rain checks. See Promotional Balance Terms for more information. Google Play and the Google Play logo are trademarks of Google Inc."
    https://store.google.com/category/phones
    https://play.google.com/intl/en_us/a...fer-terms.html

    So it seems some subscriptions are excluded, which leads me to believe that it'll work on other subscriptions (not sure which ones). But it's a true $50, not 50% off coupon. It just works on apps, games, etc. I'm sure it'll work on in app purchases, like gems in clash of clans, etc.

    Those who ordered through Project Fi are supposed to get a second coupon, good for 50% off of a case; this is what he is referring to. It sounds as if he was disappointed to learn he couldn't use the Play Credit with the 50% off coupon to get the case for free.

    I spoke with a rep who told me that Google Play Music subscriptions are eligible so yes, the $50 can be used to pay towards your subscription. If you have any google balance right now (well, if it's at least enough to cover a month), you can already use that towards your subscription with the dropdown box it has on the payment screen.

    Just got 50% discount coupon for 5X case as well. I wonder if it is transferable since I am not going to buy a case for it.

    I am not sure if the code is linked to my account or anyone can use it.

    Is it just a code? I could try it by checking out at the Google Store. If it doesn't work, then no biggie. But you don't have to give it to me if you're not sure. 😉

    You guys all think this $50 Play credit is likely the best deal on these phones for the forseeable future?

    Nothing better around Thanksgiving or Christmas?

    yeah it is just a code and I have a feeling that it is linked to my account. Well, I sent it via PM to you anyway, so check it out and let me know if it works.

    You can , in fact, give the promo to a different account. It's not tied to the account that bought the phone.
