They paid $2B for the rights to NFL Sunday Ticket. They can afford to pay for people upgrading to a Pixel 8 Pro. It's not like there will be 300K Pixel 8 Pros sold.... Am I lying though?I don't expect they will offer anything, but wouldn't the smart business move be to offer a perk to people switching to a Pixel phone versus people who have been buying Pixels/Nexuses for a long time.? You want new customers. If someone is on their second or third google phone, they are already a likely customer.
I've been considering switching to Apple because of the minor glitches with my Pixel 6 Pro hardware. Like tap to wakeup. That would be Google's loss if I bail. I'm just one person though.
Google gave out FREE Google Home mini's with the Pixel 2 XL or 4 XL I believe. That's how I received my first Google Home mini. I thought they gave out discounted Pixel Buds too at some point after buying a Pixel.
