Pixel 3 And Pixel 3 XL Discounted Again As Google Spreads Holiday Deal Cheer
If you missed out on grabbing a discounted Pixel 3 or Pixel 3 XL during Black Friday or Cyber Monday, there's no need to fret, Google has marked both of its flagship phones down once again. The smaller Pixel 3 is selling for $699 in the Google Store, down $100 from its MSRP, and the Pixel 3 XL now starts at $749, down $150 from its MSRP.
Those are not insignificant discounts, even if the discounts aren't quite as deep this time. They're also still not cheap handsets, even with the savings, though Google offers a finance option to spread the cost out over time. Here is how the upfront and financed pricing breaks down, depending on which model and storage configuration you choose:
- Pixel 3 w/ 64GB: $699 upfront (down $100) or $29.13/month for 24 months
- Pixel 3 w/ 128GB: $799 upfront (down $100) or $33.29/month for 24 months
- Pixel 3 XL w/ 64GB: $749 upfront (down $150) or $31.21/month for 24 months
- Pixel 3 XL w/ 128GB: $849 upfront (down $150) or $35.38/month for 24 months
You can also get up for $400 back in the form of a refund credit when trading in your old phone.
Google's latest discount offer applies to both unlocked and Verizon (SIM card included) models, and of course the phones support Google Fi. You also get your choice of color—Just Black, Clearly White, and Not Pink.
The biggest differences between the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are the size of the displays and accompanying resolution—the Pixel 3 sports a 5.5-inch FHD screen (2160x1080) and the Pixel 3 XL wields a 6.3-inch QHD+ (2960x144) display. Both are powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor and 4GB of RAM and both offer excellent camera performance (check out our review for an in-depth analysis).
Google's discount pricing is good until 11:59 pm PST on December 22, or "while supplies last." In addition to the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, several other items are on sale as well. Here's are a few of them:
- Google Home Hub and Nest Hello Bundle: $278 (save $100)
