What you need to know
- Google and uBreakiFix have teamed up to offer free repairs to Pixel owners who are also first responders or healthcare workers.
- Eligible workers get one free repair, no matter what kind of damage or device it is.
- Samsung owners can also take advantage of a similar deal.
Google and uBreakiFix are teaming up to support first line responders amid the current crisis. These include law enforcement, police officers, emergency medical technicians (EMTs), firefighters, doctors, nurses, pharmacists, and nursing home and hospital staff.
Members of this profession will be able to have their Pixel phone repaired for free. This covers any type of damage, ranging from broken screens to liquid damage that woud typically not be covered by warranties. As long as they had their work ID, they'd be able to go to any of uBreakiFix's 500 participating U.S. locations. Mindful of social distancing, the company offers curbside service in addition to carry in service.
Eddie Trujillo, uBreakiFix Vice President of Partnerships said:
The company has also teamed up with Samsung to provide free repairs to Galaxy phones. Both offers will last through June 30.
Think frontline grocery workers could hop on this promotion? Just bought a Pixel 2 XL with screen burn-in.
There probably going to say no
So like 4 people.
Honestly can't tell if you really think that there are only 4 people currently employed as firefighters, nursing home employees, doctors, nurses, EMTs and police. I'll definitely be going in to get my free screen replacement though (totally happened removing PPE too so I'm pretty grateful to get this crack fixed!) To be fair to you though, totally agree that anyone forced to go out into this sound get this service, including and especially grocery workers, etc.
This is great as my Pixel 3XL stopped charging or turning on.
