A few days after a lot of folks took Google to task for shutting down their video download service and offering, by way of apology, Google Checkout coupons. Well, Google has learned its lesson and has decided that it is going to make things right. Here’s what they are doing:
1. If you paid using a credit card, the full amount of credit will be applied to your card.
2. You still get to keep the Google Checkout credits.
3. You will get six more months of playback on the videos you bought.
When your friends and well-intentioned acquaintances tell you that you’ve made a mistake, it’s good to listen. ….. We should have anticipated that some users would see a Checkout credit as nothing more than an extra step of a different (and annoyingly self-serving) kind. Our bad.
OK, all is forgiven. Please don’t do it again!
