Pre-Order to Save Cash
If you want to save some cash, consider a pre-order.
The device is very new so we haven't seen a ton of deals yet, but that should change in the near future.
As of right now, you can save some cash if you pre-order via Google. The company is providing its Unlimited Plus service for three months which is a $210 value. It's risk-free, but you'll need to activate it on a new Fi account within 30 days.
If you have an old phone in good condition you could also save money on a new Pixel 5a.
Google's currently accepting trade-in offers for iPhones, Samsung Galaxy devices, LG phones, Motorola phones, and older Pixel models.
For instance, if you were to trade-in an Apple iPhone XS in great condition, you could get up to $267 to help offset the cost of the Pixel 5a.
Trade-in values fluctuate so if you find a price you really like right now, you might want to think about going through with an order.
