So, you are on the lookout for a brand new smartphone and are wondering whether you should give Google’s latest handsets, the Google Pixel and the Pixel XL, a go. After all, with these two models, you will be able to enjoy all that Android 7.0 Nougat has to offer -- in addition to special features and functions that will make up part of Android 7.1 Nougat, too. What better way to pick up either one of these two flagship Google smartphones than to look to Verizon, the (official) mobile carrier for the Pixel range, or Best Buy?
Verizon’s Google Pixel and Pixel XL deals
First of all, do bear in mind that the Google Pixel and Google Pixel XL will arrive as unlocked device on other carriers, although you are more than welcome to pick up either from Verizon if you so desire. This coming Black Friday, we are expected to see a 50 percent discount on both the Google Pixel and Pixel XL handsets. The reason that lies behind this would be Verizon's BOGO (Buy One Get One) 50 discount plan, where it enables those who are interested to pick up a second Google Pixel handset with 50% off the regular price. This seems to be a bargain, especially when you take into consideration couples that want everything to match in their lives, right down to the kind of smartphone models that they use.
If you would like to participate for the BOGO 50 deal from Verizon, there is a caveat. Verizon would want you to subscribe to a monthly deal, which will set you back by $27.08 each month across the time span of 24 months for the Google Pixel, bringing the total price to $649.99. For the $769.99 Google Pixel XL, that would mean a $32.08 monthly commitment for 24 months. Not only that, you have to sign a monthly subscription in order to qualify for the offer on the second handset.
It must also be noted that Verizon has a 20 percent discount on the Google Pixel device at the moment if you apply a SAVE20 discount code, which would mean the Google Pixel can be yours for $520 a pop.
Best Buy’s Google Pixel and Pixel XL deals
What about Best Buy’s offering for both the Google Pixel and Pixel XL this coming Black Friday? Well, the Google Pixel will set you back by $27 per month across the time span of 24 months, resulting in a full price of $648. The larger sized Google Pixel XL will be a wee bit more expensive each month, with a $31 monthly payment that will eventually arrive at the full price of $744.
If you are interested, you will be able to check out the full range of offers that Best Buy has for the Google Pixel as well as the larger sized Pixel XL smartphone here. At the end of the day, give or take a dollar or two, perhaps it would be better to just stick to a mobile carrier when it comes to purchasing smartphones. After all, that is the business in which they have the relevant expertise in.
