Google offers referral plans on Pixel 3 and Pixel 3XL

Google announced referral offers to all Google Nexus and Pixel owners — in partnership with Indian e-commerce platform Flipkart.

Google Nexus and Pixel users can refer the new Pixel 3 or Pixel 3XL to their friends and family members. Google will offer incentives to both the referrer and referee.

Each referrer will receive Rs 2,000 Flipkart gift voucher, and each referee will get Rs 7,000 discount on any of the Pixel 3 variants on Flipkart.

Google is starting this referral program today and users can generate codes till 20 December 2018. Customers can redeem generated codes until 24 December 2018.

The 64GB model of the 5.5-inch Pixel 3 is priced at Rs 71,000.

The 125GB model of the 5.5-inch Pixel 3 is priced at Rs 80,000.

The 64GB model of the 6.3-inch Pixel 3 XL is priced at Rs 83,000.

The 125GB model of the 6.3-inch Pixel 3 XL is priced at Rs 92,000.

Both Pixel 3 and Pixel 3XL are available in three colour choices: Just Black, Clearly White, and Not Pink.

Here is how the program works:

Using their Pixel or Nexus smartphone, a user needs to login using their email ID via the Flipkart app. They will then see a targeted banner announcing the special referral program for Pixel and Nexus family owners.

The user clicks on this banner and is directed to a page listing the benefits for the referrer and referee.

On this page, the user will enter their email ID to participate in the program.

Within 48 hours  the customer  will receive an email from Flipkart via their registered email ID with the unique link that they can share or use for themselves.

Links will only be activated from start of program date, and can be redeemed till end of redemption date after which they will become invalid.

The referee with the link will land on a Flipkart Page on which the referee will have to validate the code. It will get tagged to referee’s Flipkart account until offer expiry. Then at the time of purchase of a Pixel 3 or Pixel 3XL on Flipkart, an instant discount of Rs 7,000 will be applied during checkout, over and above other running offers.
