Get $110 if you bought a Nexus 4

technologyEdward KiledjianComment

I was one of the first Canadian blogs to write about Google's hugely discounted Nexus 4 promo on the Google Play store. The 8GB Nexus 4 was $309 and all of a sudden was reduced to the very affordable price of $199 (16GB went from $349 to $249).

Some of you may have been frustrated to see such a price drop, if you had recently bought a Nexus 4 but rest easy, Google has you covered with its price protection policy.

Google will issue the $110 refund with this condition

"Nexus 4 (8GB and 16GB) purchases from Devices on Google Play are currently eligible for price protection if the purchase was made on or after August 12, 2013. If your purchase is eligible, we'll refund the difference in price within a reasonable time."

Link to Google Support page for refund. 

The Nexus 4 is a great device and a fantastic choice for those not looking for the best camera, longest battery life or LTE. You can buy this unlocked device now and if you are with one of the major carriers take advantage of their $20 per month discount when you bring your own device.
