The Google-made Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL may not have the fanciest designs, sharpest screens, biggest batteries, or most impressive memory counts out there, but the unbelievably capable single rear camera and stock Android experience makes them highly attractive for certain people. Of course, even the most passionate software purists are likely to find it hard to justify an expense of $799 or $899 on these latest “pure Google” phones.
Fortunately, the search giant appeared to realize that relatively soon after releasing the Pixel 3 duo, offering a number of cool deals in recent months. The largest outright discount expired on March 3, but starting today, the Google Store promotion is back on, this time running through the end of the month. The terms and conditions are as straightforward as they come, with $200 savings available on every single Pixel 3 and 3 XL variant sans any special requirements or strings attached.
That means you can now get the 5.5-inch, no-notch model in exchange for as little as $599 unlocked as long as you can make do with 64 gigs of internal storage space (and no microSD card slot). The 128GB configuration of the smaller Pixel 3 sets you back $699 instead of $899, as does the 6.3-inch Pixel 3 XL in a 64GB version. Finally, a more digital hoarding-friendly option of the jumbo-sized handset currently fetches $799, down from $999, with all variants available in a trio of paint jobs – Just Black, Clearly White, and Not Pink.
The $200 discount is good for unlocked, Google Fi, and Verizon-specific Pixel 3 and 3 XL models, although if you’re thinking of using your new stock Android phone on the nation’s largest wireless network, it’s probably a better idea to shop at Target or Best Buy. With device payment plans and monthly bill credits, you’ll end up spending significantly less in the long run.
