    When ASUS announced the Nexus 4 and the Nexus 10, it also dropped the price of the 16GB Nexus 7 to $199 and introduced a new 32GB variant of the tablet for $249. Nexus 7 owners who got the tablet recently must have felt pretty cheated by this move from Google. There are only a few things in life worse than seeing a device that you recently purchased, get a hefty price cut.

    Thankfully, ASUS has announced that Nexus 7 owners will get a free ₤25 coupon via which they can purchase anything from the ASUS Shop online store. The offer is only valid for Nexus 7 tablets purchased by October 29th from either retail stores or from an online website. ASUS does not state as to which variants of the tablet are eligible for the offer or the purchasing date. Anyways, head over to this website if you live in Europe or the U.K to register for the offer.

    For Nexus 7 owners who got their tablet directly from Google’s Play Store, things are even better. The Play Store actually has a Price Protection policy, which states that if Google reduces the price of a device on Google Play, it will actually refund the difference in price to the user. The Policy, however, is only valid for devices purchased within 15 days since the price reduction took place. Also, users will need to apply for the price protection policy within 15 days of the price reduction taking place.

    This means that if you purchased a Nexus 7 from Google’s Play Store on or after October 14th, you are currently eligible for a refund from Google. Head over to this page to register for the policy and get your money back!

    The Chase Freedom Credit Card... awesome benefit:

    My recent message to them about my Nexus 7 purchase:

    I purchased an electronic device for $250 in September 2012. In about 30 days, the price fell to $200. Do you have a price protection guarantee as a member benefit?

    Chase Freedom reply:

    Dear (my name),

    I am writing in response to your inquiry.

    I would like to inform that your account has the following benefit:

    PRICE PROTECTION:

    The Price Protection benefit assists you in achieving the best price on products you buy entirely with your Chase card with an eligible card. If you buy an eligible item with your card in the United States and see a printed advertisement of it for less at any retail store within sixty (60) days of the original purchase date, simply file a valid claim and we will refund the difference up to $250 per claim. Additional terms and conditions apply. For more information or to file a claim, call the Benefit Administrator at 1-888-320-9656 (outside the U.S. call collect at 1-804-673-1691)

    If you have any further questions, please reply using the Secure Message Center.

    Thank you,
