Asus customers who forked out for a Nexus 7 before the price drop on 29 October have been offered a £25 gift voucher in consolation.
The coupon is limited to those who bought their device directly from Asus or Google, and not only must the slate be registered with Asus, but customers will have to provide proof of purchase too.
Nexus 7 owners who bought their tablet before 29 October have until the end of the month to register. And the £25 voucher must be used before the turn of the year. But at least folk annoyed to have missed October’s repricing announcements can now grab themselves a free Nexus 7 case or some such from the Asus store. Check out the Asus Nexus 7 website for further detailsNovember 10, 2012 at 11:26 am #11578
Well one hour later I managed to product register two Nexus 7 Tabs separately on the Asus site. I purchased them for both myself and my superior half through PC World in July. It’s something I had’nt got around to doing, so if nothing else they are both registered …but I am wondering if they might award the same compensation on both tablets for PC World customers. It does seem a little discriminatory to do for some but not others? We will see watch this space!November 10, 2012 at 7:44 pm #11722
Thanks Zemo, saw this on the Register earlier today too. I guess I’ve gotta go register!
Not sure what the voucher will be good for, spose I may as well try and spend it!November 11, 2012 at 1:01 pm #11986
Just FYI, the official dock should be available on via Asus very soon, unless of course they’ve silently cancelled the idea, so you could buy/part pay for that ;)November 11, 2012 at 2:38 pm #12006
Now that would be more appealing, although I’m a bit cynical about if/when it will be released! We can but hope :)November 11, 2012 at 7:26 pm #12113
I have been trying to register for the last hour.
The site will not accept my serial number, I have tried 0.O,Q and
all permutations of above without success.
Gave up, it’s not worth it.

Registered ok after I typed serial number in with letter O rather than zero.
Got email asking for proof of purchase.
Sent email with proof of purchase to their specified address and email got rejected cos their mailbox is full!November 13, 2012 at 9:31 am #12708
I also can’t get the Asus site to accept the serial numbers for my two Nexus’s (Nexi?
Have tried O’s and 0’s – but no luck. I have a suspicion that since I am based in France and bought locally, I will not qualify for any voucher, even if I get registered. Have emailed Asus re problem and await their replyNovember 13, 2012 at 9:56 am #12715
Third character is letter O and last six characters numeric

Thanks Caledonia – it worked!! I thought I had tried all options of 0 and O, but obviously not. I got my email for 30 Euros voucher

Just registered my Nexus after experiencing the same problems as others. It came down to
O versus 0 and the result was that O won out despite the fact that it definately reads 0 on my Nexus serial number. Got a reply to my submission of my purchase receipt saying that the process will take 1 – 2 weeks as a lot of claims have been made!

What’s the email address you send your proof of purchase to? I don’t seem to have received any email directly regarding this offer after registering my tablet? :-\November 19, 2012 at 10:29 pm #16571
Not having a lot of luck myself. Just tried to register, “server to busy”, tried again and now it says I’m already registered.
Will try again when I have more patience!!November 20, 2012 at 7:33 am #16802
I have not received anything after registering mine. Maybe because I bought from Tesco Direct in July. I wonder if Trading Standards will be interested in Asus doing selective cashbacks?. Not happy with new software changes either so this could be the end for me with tablet.
