    I agree with your theory. Bummer for anyone who hesitated for even a few hours.

    Nice. So people who don't want Netflix can sell the three free months.

    Procrastination got the best of me and I didn't pull the trigger on getting one the other day. Now it was almost impossible to find one much less with the Netflix offer.

    So I went to ebay and bought one. There seems to be plenty of them there. Some are being sold way more but once in a while you do see one that is close to the actual price. I actually bought one there for $41. I also noticed that the ones being sold on ebay do have the Netflix offer (at least the one I bought). :D

    Although originally I wanted another Google TV set-top box for the basement, (the one I have is in the bedroom), but this Chromecast would do fine for now.

    Purchased one from Best Buy today (Tue. 7/30)....

    The Netflix code was emailed to me pretty fast...

    So, I assume that if you purchase in store... You may get the code...

    The upside to me was that because I already have a Netflix account, the code gave me a 3 month credit...

    Yep, the 3 months $24 credit for existing netflix customers essentially made jumping on it day 1 a no brainer. Chromecast for $12 bucks. Only down side is i had to wait till yesterday got get mine But free best buy shipping another incentive.

    i was finally able to buy Chromecast yesterday at Best Buy. and when i was checking out, the cashier told me about the Netflix code on the receipt. i thought that ended.

    so when i got home, i immediately input the code into my existing Netflix account, and voila! 3-months free added to my account. temped to go back and get another Chromecast for another TV, and get another 3-months free. :D

    I think they only let you apply it once per account....

    But it is transferable.

    Might wanna check for an expiration date on the download.

    The ones I purchased from BEST BUY had expiration dates as early as 8/24/13.

    The one I purchased directly from GOOGLE doesn't expire until 12/31/13.
