Have You Pre-Ordered The Pixel 6? If So Which Deal?

After sifting through all the deals and weighing all the little intricacies id love to know what OzBargainers went for.

I have done a little analysis google sheet that goes through all the different deals that have come through OzB and tried to calculate the purchasing value.

  • Any suggestions on pixel 6 pro cases?

    I like the bumper Case from rhinoshield but they haven't released a case for the pixel 6 pro yet.

    Thoughts on other cases from Google, Spigen, caseology, moment etc?

    • +1

      I got the Spigen Ultra Hybrid. Same case I've gotten last three or four phones.

        Thanks for the suggestion! Im eyeing that too!

        Back in the days I had the ultra hybrid for my galaxy nexus, nexus 5 to rock that stormtrooper + transparent/Gray case look. :P

        • Went into JB to pick up the bonus nest audio and ended up getting the google case for $35 for now.

          Might get rhinoshield/spigen/mous if need additional protection down the track

    That appears to be Pixel 6 Pro pricing, and not Pixel 6.

  • The nest audio or Google credit don't actually make it cheaper.. it's just free crap they've thrown in.

    • not cheaper…but something for nothing.

  • Thanks for the analysis

    P6Pro 512GB

    I went with Google, but used Google One 2TB monthly plan ($12.49/mo) for an extra 10% store credit on top of the $150.

    I also used the $70 off coupon from the birthday sale (it arrived in my inbox today).

    Subtotal A$1,599.00
    Discount - A$70.00
    Total A$1,529.00

    Store credit earned
    10% Store credit A$152.90
    Google One

    So, $1,611.49 ($1,599 plus $12.49 for One sub)
    Minus $70 birthday coupon = $1,541.49
    Minus $150 pre-order store credit
    Minus $152.90 10% store credit
    Comes to $1238.59

    The Google Store credit has value for me. I'm already invested in the Google Nest ecosystem and I want both the new Pixel wireless charger and the Nest security camera floodlight combo unit some time soon.

      Very nice - playing the long game with google.

      Would have thought carriers/retails would have more leverage but googles pulled through with being able to stack different discounts.

  • Have You Pre-Ordered The Pixel 6?

    Wheres the no poll option? I have not preordered nor do I plan to preorder, however I do plan to buy the phone when it is available in stores.

  • I ended up with both the Google and JB hi Fi preorder
    Question is: is it better to get the JB on release day or the Google on 3 Jan?

    JB gives me nest audio and Google gives me $70 off and $300 store credit (I'm on Google one and got the $70 off offer for being a local guide)

    • How'd you get 300 credit
      Thought it was only 150,

      • the answer is literally in my post - specifically $302.9

      • Think U also get up to 10% as store credit if U have google one subscription

    What's the Harvey Norman $65 Optus Plan? I wasn't able to find it. Is it the Optus Plan through Harvey and a gift card?

  • Just picked mine up today! 2 days earlier than expected!

    • Amazing where from

      • I called up my local JB yesterday and they were notified by Google that preorder could be collected as of yesterday. YMMV

        • I also called up my local JB Hi-Fi yesterday after seeing people collect theirs on Whirlpool. They said they heard no such thing from Google. 🤦🏻‍♀️

            @kerfuffle: My mate had similar experience.

            It's a bit silly though, I was able to pick up my phone but the phone cases were still on embargo so have to wait until tomorrow to pick one up.

          • @kerfuffle: Same just called my local jb, and they said I can only pick it up tomorrow.

  • Has anyone else had issues with the Shopback $55 on signup for Telstra, the cashback is activated and you can start the order but once you go to checkout it is disabled for some reason.
