Pixel 8 and 8 Pro deals
Released in late 2023, the Pixel 8 and 8 Pro are the latest phones in Google’s flagship lineup. They’re equipped with a next-gen Tensor G3 processor, new AI features and improved screens. You have a few ways to buy one for less right now.
Just note that in our ongoing review of the Pixel 8 Pro, CNET uncovered some camera problems that we felt were serious enough to warrant holding off on recommending the phone. Google says it’s working to quickly solve these issues via a software update, and we’re confident that it will. We had no such problems with the Pixel 8 and rated it very highly.
Google just dropped a new exclusive color — mint green and they are offering deals to celebrate. Through Feb. 3, if you opt to get the phone in mint you will get a matching case for free.

Though the Pixel 8 Pro is not currently discounted, you can pick an unlocked Pixel 8 up in hazel for $655 and the obsidian for $649, down from the regular price tag of $699. Not a huge savings but if you want the phone, you can save a little bit on the price.

Verizon also has a few bonus offers. You can get up to $220 in promo credit when you add a Google Pixel Watch 2 to your phone purchase, but note that you’ll need a new line of service to get the discount.

Pixel 7 and 7 Pro deals
The previous-gen Pixel 7 and 7 Pro hit shelves in October 2022, so you’ll find them in stock and available at most major retailers and carriers. Whether you’re looking for an unlocked model, have an older device to trade in or need a new service plan through a carrier, there are plenty of offers to be had.
There are no straightforward discounts on the Google Pixel 7 or 7 Pro through Google right now, but you can trade in your old phone from Google, Apple, Samsung and other brands for up to $550 off (with the latest iPhones netting you the biggest discount).
Similar to Google, AT&T isn’t offering comprehensive deals on the Pixel 7 or 7 Pro right now, but if you’re looking to trade in your old Apple, Samsung or Google phone, you can save up to $550. Newer models (especially iPhones) earn the highest trade-in value.
Best Buy does not have any current discounts on the Pixel 7 or Pixel 7 Pro, however you can save when you trade in an old device, and the purchase of either phone scores you one month of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, three months of Google One and three months of YouTube Premium.
Amazon has had some bigger discounts on the Pixel 7 Pro right now. If you opt for the 128GB in obsidian, you can save 28%, bringing the retail price down to $650, a $249 deal. If your heart is set on the hazel variant, it’s $210 off and the snow variant is $200 off.
The Pixel 7 isn’t showing as many discounts, though the 128GB lemongrass color is discounted by $163, dropping the price to $536.
Although Verizon doesn’t have any straightforward discounts on the Pixel 7 or 7 Pro right now, the company is offering savings if you combine the purchase with a Google Pixel Watch 2.

As with the Google Pixel 8 and 8 Pro when you buy six months of service you get six months for free. Both phones are in stock, but the Pixel 7 Pro is available only in a locked model.
Watch this: Pixel 7 vs. Pixel 7A: How Do the Specs Stack Up?
Pixel 7A deals
CNET’s Lisa Eadicicco reviewed the budget-friendly 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.” It’s available at a lower base price than the other models in the Pixel 7 lineup.
Google has all configurations of the Pixel 7A in stock including the exclusive coral color and they are all priced at $499, so no savings there but trade in an old phone and you could save up to $550, though most likely you’ll save less than that for older model iPhones or Google phones. Still, with the 7A priced at $499, it can bring the price down significantly.
Any purchase of the Pixel 7A through Google also includes three months of YouTube Premium and Google One.
The Pixel 7A is not discounted right now at Best Buy but you can get the price down from $499, with a trade in, with iPhones netting you the most back. However, your trade-in amount can’t exceed the value of the Pixel 7A. The purchase also comes with one free month of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, three free months of Google One and three free months of YouTube Premium (for new subscribers).
Although the retail price for the Pixel 7A at AT&T is slightly higher than it is at Google (Google’s price is $500, AT&T’s price is $520 out the door), you can trade in a qualifying device to drop the price by as much as $490.
T-Mobile is offering two ways to get your hands on the Pixel 7A for free. You can get one free with a new line on a qualifying service plan, or with an eligible trade-in as long as you have or switch to a Go5G Plus plan.
As with other Pixel phones, there are no discounts on the Pixel 7A right now but you can get the same buy six months, get six months free offer for wireless service.
Pixel Fold deals
Samsung’s new generation of Z-series foldable phones has some competition from Google. The Pixel Fold is Google’s very first foldable device and features a 5.8-inch cover screen, a 7.6-inch OLED internal screen, 12GB of RAM, a Tensor G2 processor and an intimidating $1,799 starting price, although you can get your hands on one for less with the trade-in offers below.
Although there are no straightforward discounts on the Pixel Fold, you can save up to $550 with an eligible trade-in. The latest iPhones will net you the biggest discount, although Google also accepts phones from Samsung, LG, Motorola and others. Any purchase of the Pixel Fold through Google also includes three months of YouTube Premium and Google One.
AT&T is offering up to $1,040 off with trade-in, the purchase of the new phone and a qualifying plan.
Both new and existing Verizon customers can save on the Pixel Fold right now. If you’re adding a new line of service, you can save up to $1,000. If you’re already a Verizon customer who qualifies for an upgrade, you can save up to $800 when you trade in an eligible device.
Verizon is also offering some other bonuses, including $220 off a Pixel Watch 2, but you’ll need a new line of service for the smartwatch as well.
With no straightforward discounts on the Pixel Fold, Best Buy does offer up to $680 off with an eligible trade-in, with new iPhone models getting you the most off. You can also get one month of Xbox Unlimited Game Pass and three months of Google One free with purchase.
While it’s not offering a huge discount, if you want to pick up the Pixel Fold for a little less, Amazon has the 256GB version in obsidian for 6% less than the regular price. This means you can pick it up for $1689, a $110 savings.
Pixel 6A deals
CNET’s Lisa Eadicicco originally called Google’s affordable 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 — slightly less than the standard Pixel 7, but still more than sufficient for most people. It also boasts 5G capabilities and support for Wi-Fi 6 for fast browsing. After the release of the Pixel 7A, Google dropped the starting price by $100, so it’s already a solid value at just $349.
Right now, discounts are few and far between, and the phone is largely out of stock. Still, we’ve collected the best deals we can find below.
The starting price is $349, and right now, Google isn’t offering any straightforward discount on top of that. But if you have an old device from Apple, Google, Samsung or more, you can still save up to $590 with a trade-in. 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.
Verizon is one of the few carriers still offering the Pixel 6A. The regular price is not discounted, as it’s still a decent price at $349, but Verizon is offering up to $220 off on a Pixel Watch 2 with purchase. Right now only the obsidian variant is in stock.
Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro deals
The previous-gen Pixel 6 is over two years old, so new models are scarcer than before. 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 (though it still has the 6A) and most retailers and carriers have shifted their offers over to the newer Pixel 7 or Pixel 8 models, so deals are more limited. You can find limited stock of the Pixel 6 at AT&T but there are no current deals.
Amazon still has some previous-gen Pixel 6 phones that you can pick up. The Pixel 6 Pro is 47% less than the original retail price, so it’s $480, saving you $419, with no trade-in or new line required.
