Google’s Pixel phones continually impress us here at CNET. In fact, four of the Pixel models have earned a spot on our list of best phones overall for 2023. And with prices ranging from $449 to $1,099, there’s an option for every need and budget. Below, we’ve rounded up the best deals and offers available right now from carriers and retailers, so you can get your hands on a Pixel 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 Pixel 6A, which has been our overall favorite Android phone under $500 for a while now, and the Pixel 7A, which was just released.
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.
Pixel 7 and 7 Pro deals
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. But if you have an older older device from Google, Apple or Samsung, you can save up to $400 with a trade-in, with the latest iPhones netting you the biggest discount. And if you’re looking for the 7 Pro, you’ll get a $100 discount outright, plus whatever trade-in savings you may qualify for if you trade in your device.
Amazon is one of the few retailers offering a no-strings-attached discount on the Pixel 7 series that won’t require a trade-in or new line of service. While there are no discounts on the basic Pixel 7 from Amazon directly right now, you can save $100 on the Pixel 7 Pro. Amazon also has its own trade-in program, and you can earn up to $401 off in exchange for your old devices.
AT&T’s offers vary a bit depending on which Pixel 7 model you’re looking at. If you want the base model Pixel 7, you can save up to $560 when purchasing on an installment plan and with activation on a qualifying unlimited plan — no trade-in required. And if you’re looking for a Pixel 7 Pro, you can cash in on up to $580 on an installment plan with activation. And you can also recycle your former device with a trade-in credit of up to $350 (with the flagship phones for Apple, Samsung and Google bringing in the highest values).
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. If you don’t need a new line, you can still save up to $800 with a qualifying trade-in, including old and damaged devices, as long as you’re eligible for an upgrade.
Verizon is also offering 50% off a pair of Pixel Buds Pro with the purchase.
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.
Best Buy is offering a fairly misleading deal on unlocked Pixel 7 phones right now. While you can technically save $100 on an unlocked Pixel 7, or $150 on an unlocked Pixel 7 Pro, you’ll have to choose same-day activation and sign on with a carrier to get the discount, essential defeating the point of an unlocked phone.
But if you’re a Verizon customer, you can save up to $800 with an eligible trade-in and activation on a qualifying service plan. Verizon even accepts old and damaged devices, so you may be surprised what your old phone is worth.
Pixel 7A deals
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.
If you buy your Pixel 7A directly from the Google Store, you’ll get Pixel Buds A-Series and a limited-edition case free with your purchase.
Amazon has the unlocked Pixel 7A available for its full retail price of $499 right now, but you’ll get a free $50 Amazon gift card, which you’ll be able to use on a future purchase at the e-tailer.
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 $400 on an eligible smartwatch purchase 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.
If you purchase the new unlocked Pixel 7A at Best Buy, you can save an additional $50 with activation, bringing the price down to $449. On top of that, you’ll get a $50 Best Buy gift card.
Pixel 6A deals
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. It’s already a solid value at its usual price of $449, but 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 $350 with a trade-in.
With the release of the Pixel 7A, Amazon has dropped its price on the Pixel 6A, offering the unlocked version for $349 right now. You’ll also get 3-months of Amazon Music Unlimited for free with your purchase.
AT&T has the charcoal variant of the Pixel 6A available right now, and if you have an older phone to recycle, you can get up to $350 for a trade-in with a device in good condition.
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 $400 on select smartwatches with the purchase of a 6A — though you’ll need a line of service for that as well.
Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro deals
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.
If you don’t need the latest and greatest, Amazon is still offering the previous-gen Pixel 6. There are no direct deals from Amazon right now, however we have seen large discounts before, so we will keep an eye out for the next time we see a deal. As for the Pixel 6 Pro — there are some models in stock, but they’re either renewed or being sold through third-party retailers that we haven’t vetted, so we’d recommend steering clear.
