Google’s latest flagship Android smartphones, the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are set to go on sale in India starting November 01. Since the Pixel brand does not have a huge fan following in India, Google has announced some exciting launch offers for existing Pixel and Nexus customers. Google will be giving a Home Mini free of cost to existing Pixel and Nexus owners who upgrade to the latest Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL (review) smartphones. In addition to a free Google Home Mini, customers can avail some other attractive offers as well during the first week of sale.
Google Home Mini Free for Pixel 3, Pixel 3 XL Buyers
The Google Home Mini offer will be valid only for existing Google Pixel and Nexus smartphone owners from November 01 till November 07 in India. Customers will be able to claim their free Google Home Mini at the point of sale. In case the retailer does not have the free Home Mini available, they will reach out to the customer once the stock is available. Going by the terms and conditions of the offer, it will be valid only at select offline stores. It is not clear if existing Google Pixel and Nexus owners will be eligible to receive a free Home Mini on purchasing the Pixel 3 or Pixel 3 XL from Flipkart.

In addition to the free Google Home Mini offer, Google has announced No Cost EMIs up to 18 months and an additional cashback of 5% on select bank cards. The 5% cashback offer will be valid only on EMI transactions using HDFC Bank debit/credit card, Citibank credit card, RBL credit card, or BFL super cards. The cashback will be printed on charge slip for eligible transactions. However, do note that the cashback offer cannot be clubbed with any other offer, aside from standard EMI and bank cashback. However, unlike the Home Mini offer, anyone holding an eligible card can avail the 5% cashback offer. Apart from standard and No Cost EMI options, customers will also be able to opt for Bajaj Finance schemes to purchase the latest Pixel smartphones.
