    Update: Sorry... they are already out of stock! :(

    Update 2: Some folks have had luck with constantly refreshing the order page for a few minutes, so if you want these really bad, you might give it a shot! Good luck! :D


    Here's something pretty cool for Star Wars fans. Earlier in the month, Verizon was handing out FREE Star Wars: The Force Awakens themed Google Cardboard devices to folks who came in their stores for a limited time. Apparently, they had more stock than consumers who wanted them because you can now find them on the Google Play Store, also for FREE.

    These are basically the same Google Cardboard VR goggles that have artwork depicting BB-8, a First Order Stormtrooper, Kylo Ren, and R2-D2.

    Here's a link to grab one before they finally do run out: Star Wars: The Force Awakens Cardboard - BB-8, First Order Stormtrooper, Kylo Ren, or R2-D2 - Google Store

    Ugh, I tried just now and they had 2 ofthem still in stock. I went to checkout and as it was processing, it said an error occurred. So it looks like someone snagged the one I had in my cart =\

    Ya but luckily i kept refreshing and they went back in stock (atleast temporarily) and I snagged a stormtrooper one :D

    For anyone trying, I suggest refreshing the page every minute or so. Seems like they'll go back in stock and sell out every few minutes, but you have to be quick or you'll get an error message while checking out.
