It’s not often Google smartphones go on sale, especially just six months after their release. But Google’s exclusive carrier partner for last year’s Pixel 2 XL flagship, Verizon, has a bold offer you can take advantage of shall you stay with the carrier for two years.
The latest promotion on Google’s Pixel 2 XL is being offered at Best Buy stores thanks to a partnership with Verizon. Sales have been slowing down a bit after a strong start, and this bargain might be to clear some extra stock and give incentive.
For a limited time only, you can save up to $500 on a Pixel 2 XL. You got that right. Google’s latest and greatest smartphone from 2017, which tops every other phone’s camera and is still one of the best on the market, can be had for as little as $350. But there are some precautions.
First off, note that this is only for the Pixel 2 XL and not the smaller Pixel 2. Secondly, understand this is the Verizon model and that you’ll be required to have the phone with the carrier for two years to save. This is because $300 of the possible $500 discount is spread over your bill credits for two years. We saw a similar but not as generous deal being offered around the holidays. If you leave and decide to pay the phone off, the remaining discount is lost. This is Verizon’s way of keeping you enrolled for its service, where its profit comes from, as you’ll continue to save as you stay enrolled. It’s almost like the replacement for the now-ceased 2-year contract. The other $200 is simply a sale being run by Best Buy, which is $200 of instant reduction in price. No trade-in is needed.
Both storage capacities are eligible for this deal and the phone comes in choice of Black & White or Black. The 64GB capacity comes out to be around $14 per month after the Verizon discount, while the 128GB model will run you around $19 per month. If you’re a Verizon customer or actively looking to sign up for Verizon service, this deal is a no brainer shall the phone be the one you’re looking for and two-years not be an issue. It’s too bad Verizon hasn’t run the deal on any of its other phones.
