    Call Verizon and have them credit you, it works

    I called and chatted with support:

    Call person said: she saw the promotion and it is valid but has no information on how existing play music users get the credit. Suggested I wait a few weeks and see if it was automatically applied the next billing cycle.

    Chat person said - - credit would automatically be applied.

    We'll see I guess. Seems like if it was a play store thing, you'd get a play number to redeem.

    Nice perk though - worth $8.99x6=$53.94

    I'll have to keep watch on this thread. I'm getting this phone tomorrow and already subscribe to Google Music as well.

    So, I hope I'm not derailing the thread too much... that means some stuff is free not all, right?

    Nice to have the video link . . . . guess we'll wait and see if and where the credit shows up (Google Play or VZW bill.)

    Always nice when a company thoroughly thinks through a promotion and welcomes customers with open arms.

    The promotion is 6 months of free access which I guess is worth $9.99.month so almost $60.

    (I pay $7.99 as one of the early adopters.)

    I just completed a chat with a Verizon rep online minutes ago about this very thing. She looked into at for me and came back with:

    "I found the disclaimer here. It says that Existing Google Play All Music Access customers are not eligible for this promotion."

    I mentioned to her that that was not obvious anywhere. A phone call to Verizon support yielded that exact same results, though they admitted it's not obvious to buyers that existing All Access members are ineligible. No credit offered, just the mention that we're still in the 14-day period to return the phone if that was a dealbreaker.

    Good tip. I never saw the notice. if I can't get credit for myself as a current $7.99/mo subscriber, why not just give the code/credit to a friend?

    I just opened the Google Play Music app for the first time and it offered the 6 month free trial courtesy of Verizon. I haven't previously used Music with this Google account

    This is extraordinarily unfair to those who subscribe already. I don't see how this could stand. I want the Maxx, but this isn't cool.
