Happen to pick up a new Nexus 7 Sleeve yesterday despite the outrageous shipping costs? Well, you're likely to have your shipping costs refunded as customers have been receiving the above email tonight from Google Play. Anyone who pulled the trigger on a Nexus 7 Sleeve yesterday paid somewhere in the neighborhood of $18 to $22 for shipping on the accessory, which was a bit much considering the sleeve itself was only $29.99.
Those who purchased the sleeve yesterday are receiving refunds back on their cards, and in our case it was for $24.07 ($21.98 + sales tax) because we had chosen the 2-day shipping on our sleeve. So if you ordered your sleeve early, you're essentially getting free shipping in the end.
Google has dropped the shipping prices and included a third option, meaning that you can now choose between "Saver" 5-10 day shipping for $3.99, "Ground" 3-5 day for $7.99 or "Two Day" for $11.99. These shipping prices are much closer to what we'd expect to pay when buying a $29.99 accessory, and we're glad to see Google fix these and refund the first customers that purchased.
