Same for me, saw the promotion appear on the site before the launch videos had even started talking about the phones and ordered there and then.
I've gone for Sorta Sage, expecting by 16th Oct.

Yep, ordered as soon as it went live during the event and much earlier than expected. Why?
The green looks cool and I am fine with the specs once the battery size was clear.
The form factor is exactly what I want (and sooooo very close to the Essential phone)
The BOSE headphone deal is almost ridiculous (even though I have Sony XM3s) making it a steal.
YMMV etc

I have a problem with my wh900's and ordered the xm3 (overhead headphones so we both mean the frame thing) 2 days ago. I cancelled them this morning after ordering the pixel 5. I'll probably sell them on but I'm curious to hear the difference, meanwhile the xm3 might drop some more in price while I use my wh900 and wait for these Bose units.

Yep, we mean the same Sony ones (apologies, I probably got it wrong). I guess the BOSE will drop heavily in price once a bunch of people get free ones and eBay gets busy with them.
I expected the headphone deal to be in-ears with wireless charging, but now I realise that the 4a5g (what a bad name) has the same deal it makes sense for the latest pixel buds.

To be fair, it's pretty typical El goog seemingly having no sense of narrative with their own products. Perhaps they can push that as "consistency in an ever changing situation". :silly:

Sony's naming convention confuses me, I think there's another one similar in name to xm3 but it's in ear.

I don't think I would have ordered if they came with ear buds, I like my over ear headphones for the office and now wfh.

Yep I also pre ordered the pixel 5 with Bose headphones offer (will be selling it to help offset the cost) even if I get £100-200 for them. I ordered via carephone warehouse. Says 15th October to be delivered! Just need to wait for some decent Spigen cases to show up! I'm coming from a 2017 Sony XZ Premium phone so should be a nice upgrade and also slightly smaller phone but more screen so perfect for me :)

I had ordered on the Google store initially but my delivery date for sage green was the 27th Oct. Today I cancelled the order on Google store and placed the order on carphone warehouse for the sage and the delivery date is now 15th Oct.

The sage is still available for preorder on carphone warehouse and e2save (both participating retailers for the bose headphone offer) so if like me you also have an end of Oct or early Nov delivery date on Google store then maybe worth cancelling and ordering from one of these (remember the headphone offer is subject to stock so the earlier you get the phone the better).

I told myself I don't need the upgrade yet - then comes Bose offer. I managed to sleep on it for a night and then ordered as soon as I woke up. Expecting on 16th Oct too. Just ordered a clear case in preparation for this.

I've had DPD, Yodel and someone else before. Not sure if they have one dedicated partner

    Update, only after threatening pixel-offers with legal action, I received an email and sms the very next day saying my free gift has now been dispatched (85 days) never again!!!
