Grab a new phone from Google’s Pixel 7 or Pixel 6 lineup at a fantastic price.
Google’s phones contine to impress us here at CNET, with nearly all of its latest models claiming a spot on our list of the best phones overall for 2023. There’s a wide variety of models to choose from, and with prices ranging from $349 to $1,099, there are options out there for every budget. Below, we’ve rounded up some of the best deals and discounts being offered from both carriers and retailers so you can get one of these sleek and top-rated Google phones in your pocket for less.
The Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro are the latest in Google’s flagship lineup, and they’re great choices if you already use Google services to help organize your life. There’s also the previous-gen Pixel 6A, which recently had its starting price reduced by $100, and the new Pixel 7A, which is our favorite budget-friendly Android phone.
If you’re having a hard time deciding which Pixel model will work best for you, we’ve compared the Pixel 7 and 7 Pro to their previous-gen counterparts, with a full breakdown of their specs and performance. If affordability is your top priority, you’ll probably want to opt for the budget-friendly Pixel 7A or the even cheaper previous-gen Pixel 6A.
The Pixel 7 and 7 Pro hit shelves back in October of last year, and you’ll find them in stock and available at most major retailers and carriers. There are tons of offers out there, whether you’re looking for an unlocked model, have an older device to trade in or are in need of a new service plan through a carrier.
There are a few benefits that come with buying your Pixel 7 from Google directly. For one, all models and colors are in stock, so you don’t have to worry about getting your ideal configuration, and Google allows you to buy your phone outright, as opposed to an installment plan required by some retailers and carriers.
At the moment, Google isn’t offering any straightforward discount on the Pixel 7 series. But if you have an older older device from Google, Apple or Samsung, you can save up to $650 with a trade-in, with the latest iPhones netting you the biggest discount.
AT&T is offering some solid deals on both the Pixle 7 and 7 Pro at the moment. When you have, or switch to, an eligible unlimited plan, and purchase your new Pixel phone on an installment plan, you can save $560 on the base model Pixel 7, and $580 on the Pixel 7 Pro. That drops the price down to just $5/month and $10/month respectively. AT&T also has a trade-in program where you can save up to $630 in exchange for your old phone from Apple, Google, Samsung and more.
Verizon is offering deals for both new and existing customers at the moment. If you’re adding a new line of service, you can get the Pixel 7 for free, or save $720 on the Pixel 7 Pro, which drops the price down to just $5 per month. Or, if you’re an existing Verizon customer who qualifies for an upgrade, you can save up to $440 with a qualifying trade-in, including old and damaged devices, as long as you’re eligible for an upgrade.
Verizon is also offering, $220 off a Pixel Watch and 50% off a pair of Pixel Buds Pro with the purchase. And you’ll get a free $200 Verizon gift card when you switch your existing number over from another carrier.
Both new and existing customers can save $500 on both the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro right now at T-Mobile. New customers will save $500 when adding a new line of service on qualifying service plan, or, if you’re already a T-Mobile customer, you can also save $500 when trading in your old phone as long as you already have or switch to a qualifying service plan. The discount is applied in the form of monthly bill credits over a 24-month period.
It’s pretty slim pickings on Pixel 7 deals at Best Buy right now. At the moment, the best offer available is as much as $350 off the Pixel 7 Pro with an eligible trade-in. You’ll also get three free months of YouTube Premium with the purchase if you’re a new subscriber.
CNET’s Lisa Eadicicco reviewed the recently released Pixel 7A and found it has many of the same features as the Pixel 7, saying that „it has the same Tensor G2 processor as the Pixel 7, a new 64-megapixel main camera and a 6.1-inch screen just like its predecessor.” But it’s available at a lower price than the other models in the Pixel 7 lineup. And right now you can snag even more savings. Here are the best deals you can get on this new device.
Google isn’t offering any discounts on its new Pixel 7A at the moment, but you can save up to $650 with an eligible trade-in, with the latest iPhones netting you the most credit.
You can save up to $448 when purchasing a Pixel 7A on an installment plan with activation on a qualifying unlimited plan from AT&T — no trade-in required. The discount is applied in the form of monthly bill credits over a 36-month period.
You can get the Pixel 7A for free at Verizon for a limited time when you sign up for a new line. You’ll also be able to save up to $220 on a Google Pixel Watch with its own new line of service as well as 50% off Pixel Buds A-Series with your purchase.
Right now T-Mobile is offering the recently released Pixel 7A for free when you add a new line on a qualifying plan. The discount is applied in the form of monthly bill credits over a 24-month period. And if you’re an existing T-Mobile customer, you can get up to $500 off when you trade in your older device. To get the full savings, you’ll need to trade in an iPhone X (or later), a Samsung Galaxy S20 (or later), a Pixel 5 (or later) or a OnePlus 8 5G (or later). Your device will need to be in good condition to qualify.
Best Buy is offering $50 off the new Pixel 7A when you choose same-day activation and sign on with a carrier. And when you choose a qualifying Google Fi service plan, you’ll get another $200 off via monthly bill credits.
CNET’s Lisa Eadicicco called Google’s affordable next-gen Pixel 6A the „best Android phone under $500.” It’s slightly smaller than the full-size Pixel 7, and features a 6.1-inch OLED display with a refresh rate of 60Hz. It’s equipped with 128GB of storage and 6GB of RAM, which is slightly less than the standard Pixel 7 has, but is still more than sufficient for most people’s needs. It also boasts 5G capabilities and support for Wi-Fi 6 for lightning-fast browsing. Since the release of the new Pixel 7A, Google has dropped the starting price of this previous-gen model by $100, so it’s already a solid value at just $349. And we’ve rounded up some of the best deals and offers out there so you can pick one up for even less.
Like with the Pixel 7 series, Google isn’t offering any straightforward discount on the Pixel 6A at the moment. But if you have an old device from Apple, Google, Samsung and more, you can still save up to $650 with a trade-in. Though if you’re shopping for the previous-gen Pixel 6A, you’ll probably be trading in an older phone that will net you closer to $200 or $300 in credit.
With the release of the Pixel 7A, Amazon has dropped its price on the Pixel 6A, offering the unlocked version for $349 right now. And you can save up to $401 if you’ve got an older phone to trade-in.
Whether you’re adding a new line or just upgrading, you’ll have to pay full price for the Pixel 6A at Verizon. However, both new and existing customers can save 50% on a pair of Pixel Buds A-Series, and $220 on a Google Pixel Watch with the purchase of a 6A — though you’ll need a line of service for that as well.
The previous-gen Pixel 6 is almost two years old at this point, and it’s getting pretty tough to find new models in stock. But if you’re committed to snagging one of these older flagship phones, Amazon still has a few available that you can pick up for hundreds less than the original price. Google no longer carries the Pixel 6 and most retailers and carriers have shifted their offers over to the newer Pixel 7 models, so this is just about the only deal you’ll find out there at the moment.
Amazon still has some previous-gen Pixel 6 phones that you can pick up at a discount right now. You can save up to $204 on the base model Pixel 6, or up to $411 on the Pixel 6 Pro, with no trade-in or new line required.
