ASUS, Google offering price protection for recent Nexus 7 buyers

When both ASUS and Google announced that their popular Nexus 7 tablet was getting slightly refreshed with new storage capacities at the same price points as before, some recent buyers were naturally pretty upset. After all, they could’ve spent $50 less to get a 16GB model, or gotten 32GB of storage for the same price.

Thankfully, the companies feel their pain: starting today, both ASUS and Google will be refunding some buyers of the $250 16GB model who purchased it before the price drop. In the UK, buyers can expect a voucher of ₤25 to spend in the ASUS store, while the rest of Europe will get €30. Meanwhile, US-based buyers will be getting a refund of $50 from Google.

To request your voucher or refund, hit up the either the ASUS (Europe) or Google (US) source links below. You’ve got until November 30 to get your application in.

    If only this was applicable to my tablet. I have an 8GB Nexus, and I’ve only really been able to use it a couple of weeks since I had to send it back for screen life. So, not only did I pay $225 for it (with tax and shipping), I didn’t even get to use it for much longer than other users. Still, even at $225 the Nexus is great, I just wish mine had more storage.
