Google's Pixel 7 Pro Is $150 Off In Early BF Sale Off Or Free With These Trade-In Offers
Google's Pixel 7 Pro smartphone hasn't been on the market very long, but it's already deeply discounted. That's because Google is getting a jump start on the Black Friday and Cyber Monday shopping season. To sweeten the deal even further you can trade in an existing smartphone and receive up to $900, depending on the model, which effectively makes the Pixel 7 Pro a free upgrade, in a sense.
Normally priced at $899, the Pixel 7 Pro has been slashed to $749 at the Play Store and other retailers for the holiday season. That's a chunky $150 savings right off the bat. You can also find it for the same price at Amazon and Best Buy with various color options available.

Not too shabby for avoiding the hassle of selling your existing handset yourself (on eBay or wherever else). Likewise, Best Buy is also offering trade-in credit for a bunch of smartphones, though not necessarily as much as Google. For example, the iPhone 14 Pro Max with 1TB of built-in storage fetches $550 in trade-in credit versus $900 at Amazon. Still, that brings the price of the Pixel 7 Pro down to $199.
Amazon also has a trade-in program, it just isn't as fleshed out or as lucrative—there's no option to select an iPhone 13 series phone, while the iPhone 12 Pro Max fetches up to $401 instead of $650. Nevertheless, it's worth looking into if you want to go that route.
As for Google's latest flagship phone, we noted in our Pixel 7 Pro review that it's refined in every way, with an improved premium build quality and overall design. To recap the specs, it wields a 6.7-inch OLED display with a 1440x3120 resolution and 120Hz refresh rate, powered by Google's Tensor G2 SoC and 12GB of RAM. The model that goes for $749 right now is the one with 128GB of storage.
For taking photos, it has a 10.8MP shooter on the front, and a triple-camera arrangement on the back consisting of a 50MP primary lens, 12MP ultrawide camera, and 48MP telephoto lens. It also boasts optical image stabilization (which isn't on the non-Pro model).
