Chromebook Pixel owners receive $150 Visa giftcard after complimentary Verizon service got cut off early


Chromebook Pixel Google Play listing

For all 4 people that picked up Google’s very own Chromebook Pixel, the search giant is looking to make things right after an issue with Verizon saw the laptop’s complimentary 4G LTE came to an abrupt end. Originally, the LTE equipped Pixel was sold with 2 years of free Verizon data (up to 100MB), but according to ComputerWorld, reports from users (seriously, who bought this thing?) noticed their 4G LTE had been cut-off early, barely a year into their service.

While Verizon has yet to address the issue (they’re currently investigating), Google is taking matters into their own hands by offering Chromebook Pixel owners a complimentary $150 Visa giftcard for their troubles. If your service has been cut short, you can contact Google Play support about the issue here.

      Heck, my mom only uses about 300MB a month on our family plan. I don’t know how she does it, but you’d be surprised at how little data you use just to browse the web.
