On October 4th Google revealed these phones after months of rumors and speculation. They have a lot to offer, beautiful screens, one of the best cameras and run the latest Android 7.1 Nougat. Users can buy one today from the Google Play Store, Verizon or even Best Buy. If you do, make sure to take advantage of the deals we’ve found.

Take a peek at our review above, then read on for more details. The smaller 5-inch Google Pixel starts at $649. Then the bigger 5.5-inch Pixel XL is $769. Pricing that matches some of the high-end competition like Apple. It’s not the low prices many are accustomed to. As a result buyers are looking for deals or discounts. That’s exactly what we have for you below.

Google’s new phones bring a lot to the table. Taking everything users loved about Nexus phones then refined into an improved experience. From a premium all-metal design, the latest and greatest hardware and more. Pixel is the first phone to run a Snapdragon 821 processor for improved performance. They have plenty of RAM and up to 128GB of storage. Google even claims it has the best smartphone camera on the planet. That’s a bold claim. Not to mention smart features like the Google Assistant.

One thing to consider is these phones are still fairly new, so discounts are hard to come by. There are deals to be found though. We can expect Pixel deals during the holidays and Verizon Black Friday deals will save buyers a pretty penny. As of right now, these are the deals you should be aware of.

T-Mobile Pixel Deal

Google’s Pixel is unlocked and has support for almost every major carrier in the United States and around the globe. Meaning one bought from the Google Store will work on AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon, Sprint, MetroPCS and regions around the globe. Even the Verizon model works with any and all carriers.

It’s being advertised as exclusively on Verizon, but that’s just not true. Everyone needs to be aware of that. In fact, in early November T-Mobile confirmed the Pixel works everywhere, including their network. To convince buyers to switch they’ll pay for half of the phone. It’s called Free Your Pixel.

Buy a Google Pixel anywhere that it’s available and bring it to T-Mobile. The popular carrier will pay for half of it. Up to $325 to be exact. Savings won’t be 50% on the Pixel XL, as it retails for $769, but you get the drift.

Whether you’re already with T-Mobile or use another carrier simply bring a Pixel to a nearby store. Then join a new T-Mobile One plan and get half off Google’s greatest phone. This is one of the best deals around, and will be for the foreseeable future.

Best Buy Google Pixel Deal

The biggest deal we’ve seen so far comes from Best Buy, which was sort of expected. They typically offer big incentives to get users in their stores rather than going to carriers.

Best Buy gave those who ordered the new Google Pixel or XL a $100 gift card and a free Google Chromecast. As long as it gets activated on Verizon Wireless, and not another carrier. This deal has since expired, but a new Verizon deal is detailed below. If you still want to get it from Best Buy, they’re offering 6 or even 18-month zero financing options.

That $100 can go towards cases, covers, screen protectors, accessories and more. It’s also worth noting it’s an older model, not the new Chromecast Ultra Google just announced. Still, it’s a free gift simply for going to Best Buy that’s typically $35. A perfect companion for the Pixel.

The bigger XL is still sold out almost everywhere and very hard to find. If you see one, get it.

Verizon Pixel Deal

Considering the only carrier in the United States that will offer Google’s new phone is Verizon, they are the only one with deals. Honestly we didn’t expect to see any discounts, with them having exclusive access to the phone, but we received some.

First off, and what everyone should know, is you can get these phones for 20% off from Verizon. That may not sound like much, but 20% off an $800 phone is a lot of savings.

Using the discount code “SAVE20” on Verizon’s website will get buyers the Pixel for as low as $520, or the 128GB Pixel XL drops from $870 to $690. This is a good way to save some money, according to Droid-Life.

Starting November 10th Verizon has a new buy one get one 50% off deal going on, which is huge. Allowing buyers to snag a Pixel and get a second one for cheap.

The buy one get one for 50% off above is only available for a limited time, so hurry while supplies last. Verizon will also have the Pixel for $400 off on Black Friday.

Those who buy the Google Pixel or XL from Verizon Wireless will also get a free Google Daydream View VR headset. That is a $79 value, and essentially matches Samsung’s free Gear VR deal with the Galaxy S7. Verizon will also give buyers up to $300 towards it with any 4G LTE smartphone trade-in. Making it much cheaper.

It’s worth noting Google’s own Daydream VR has a remote control, a better design, and could potentially be a better virtual reality experience. It also works seamlessly with Google’s new phone. So this is a great opportunity to try both without spending the extra $80.

More details on the free Daydream View and how to redeem it can be found here.

Carphone Warehouse

They aren’t calling it Black Friday, but that’s exactly what this deal is. Those outside the United States looking to grab a Google Pixel or XL should consider Carphone Warehouse. Buying the phone in contract with monthly payments has a big discount, and both are £150 off.

The company also has the sim-free model available at £70 off  for those interested. Similar savings can be found on other phones like the Galaxy S7 for Black Friday. This deal won’t last long, so click the link to learn more and buy it come Friday.

Other Options

Once we see more deals, discounts or savings we’ll be sure to update this post with additional information and links. Buying it direct from Google also awards users a free DayDream View VR headset.

Another option for potential buyers is to simply use Google’s financing option. A 24-month cheap payment plan. Spending $769 for the Pixel XL is a lot of money, and spending over $900 after tax for the 128GB is a big price to pay. As a result Google is offering financing options starting at $27 a month.

We’ll continue to monitor for new and exciting deals or discounts, and update as more become available. Stay tuned for more savings in the coming weeks.

8 Best Google Pixel Screen Protectors

InvisibleShield Glass for Pixel XL

InvisibleShield Glass for Pixel XL

 Zagg is a pioneer when it comes to screen protectors. Being one of the first years ago to offer durable and safe protection for our phones. And they continue to do so in 2016. This is an InvisibleShield Glass screen protector made of hardened, re-inforced and strengthened glass just like what comes on the phone. From the company behind Zagg. 

It's extremely resistant to scratches and damage just like the stock Gorilla Glass on the Pizel, and will act as a second layer of protection. If for whatever reason it gets a scratch, chip or crack, remove it and the phone is as good as new. Zagg is one of a few brands we always turn to for screen protection.

Reviews suggest it doesn't cover the entire screen, which is by design as the glass has a slight curve on the edges. This is to prevent the "halo" effect many see on iPhones. It also makes the screen protector case friendly so it doesn't get pulled up and wasted.
