Those who got in early with a Nexus 6P or Nexus 5X order from the Google Store were promised a $50 Google Play gift card — but it's a tad confusing when it doesn't come in the box with the phone. Fear not, because you'll be getting an email from the Google Store a day or two after your new phone arrives with a code to deposit $50 into your account.
You can redeem the $50 of credit directly from the email with a link, but also note that the email contains a regular Google Play code that can actually be applied to any Google account. So if you'd like to spread the love a bit and give the $50 as a gift to someone, just send them that one-time use code and have them add it to their account through Google Play (just click "Redeem" in the sidebar).
No matter where it's going, make sure you redeem your $50 by the end of 2015, and spend it by the end of October 2016.
Haven't yet pulled the trigger on a new Nexus? You have until October 25 to order from Google and still get the Play Store credit.
