Nexus 5X and 6P goodies: $50 Google Play credit (US only) and free 90-day Google Music subscription

Google just announced the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P, the world's first smartphones to run Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box, and the first Nexus handsets to feature fingerprint scanners. Both the 5X and 6P are available to pre-order starting today in the US, UK, Ireland and Japan, directly from Google Store. The two devices will start shipping sometime in October, when they're going to be available in many other markets (Google has yet to reveal a complete list of countries where it will launch them).

In the US, Google will offer a $50 Google Play credit to each new Nexus smartphone buyer. Anywhere else (including the US), all Nexus 5X and 6P users will be able to enjoy a free 90-day Google Music subscription.

In case you haven't heard yet, prices for the Nexus 5X start at $379 (16 GB model), with the 32 GB model costing $429. The Nexus 6P is more expensive: $499 (32 GB), $549 (64 GB), and $649 (128 GB - yep, this is the very first Nexus phone with 128 GB of storage space). So, who's planning to buy a Google Nexus 5X, or a Google Nexus 6P?

I assume Nexus are GSM-only? I have been on TMo since the beginning of time, but thinking of switching to Verizon. Can't find a Verizon phone I care for...
