Best Google Pixel Deals: Preorder Offers on Pixel 7, $398 Off Pixel 6A and More

If you already use Google for your email, calendar and cloud storage, it’s tough to compete with the convenience offered by a Google Pixel phone. And right now, you’ve got a few different options to choose from, including several models that earned a spot on our list of the best phones for 2022.

The Pixel 7 and the Pixel 7 Pro will be the most advanced phones in Google’s lineup, but they’re not on shelves quite yet. They’ll officially be available on Oct. 13, which means that you’ve still got a few days to take advantage of some great preorder offers before they’re gone. If you don’t need to upgrade to the latest and greatest, you can still find some bargains out there on the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, though most carriers have switched their best offers over to the new Pixel 7, so you may have to shop unlocked if you want a discount. And if you’re after the most affordable option, the brand-new Pixel 6A is our favorite Android phone under $500 right now. But no matter which model works best for your needs, there’s no reason to pay more than you have to. Below, you’ll find our roundup of all the best deals on all Pixel phones that you can shop for right now from both carriers and retailers.

If you want to buy your new Pixel directly from the source, it’s not too late to take advantage of Google’s preorder offer. Pixel 7 and 7 Pro devices will be released Oct. 13, and you can get up to $750 off with trade-in and $200 in Google Store credit when you order right now. 

Similar to Amazon’s promotion, Target is giving away gift cards with Pixel 7 and 7 Pro preorders. You’ll get a $100 Target gift card with the Pixel 7 or a $200 Target gift card with the Pixel 7 Pro. That’s as good as free cash if you plan to shop at Target a bunch this fall.

Purchase the new Google Pixel 7 series on a qualifying installment plan and trade in your old phone for as much as $800 off. That means the Pixel 7 is available for free, with the Pixel 7 Pro available for less than $4 per month. 

Verizon is offering customers up to $700 off Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro models with a trade-in, and it will even accept old and damaged devices. You’ll have to activate the phone on a qualifying data plan to get the discount, and if you’re looking to port your number over from another carrier, you’ll also get a free $200 Verizon gift card. 

Verizon is also offering a “buy one, get one for $700 off” deal, with activation on a qualifying data plan, in case you need more than one new phone. And if you’re in the market for a new smart watch, you can save up to $220 on the Pixel Watch with this purchase and activation on any data plan. 

T-Mobile is offering the Pixel 7 for free on its Magenta Max plan with a trade-in, or you can get as much as $800 off the Pixel 7 Pro. If you don’t have a device to trade in, you can get up to $500 off with a new line, and if you’re already a T-Mobile customer, you can get up to $300 off with trade-in. 

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 6, 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 6 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. 

If you don’t want to be tied to a carrier, Amazon has the best Pixel 6A offer out there at the moment. Right now, you can save $100 on unlocked models with no strings attached. That means no trade-ins or lines of service required to get the discount. You can save $100 on the chalk, charcoal and sage variants with all three colors in stock and ready to ship.

Like Amazon, Best Buy is offering $100 off unlocked models of the Pixel 6a. You can also activate it through a carrier at Best Buy, though we’d recommend seeing what offers your carrier has first, as many have even better deals and discounts available.

Both new and existing AT&T customers can grab the Pixel 6A for just $2 per month when purchasing on an installment plan and with activation on a qualifying unlimited plan. That locks you into a 36-month plan, but saves you $398 compared to AT&T’s price, or $377 compared to the price from Google.

Customers adding a new line of service at Verizon can get the Pixel 6A completely free with activation on a qualifying 5G unlimited plan. Unfortunately, those who only want to upgrade an existing line will have to pay full price. However, both new and existing customers can save $220 on a Pixel Watch with the purchase of a 6A and activation on any data plan.

Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro deals

The Pixel 6 and 6 Pro are Google’s latest flagship phones. They sport an all-new design, improved cameras and much more inside. From features like Magic Erase to incredible picture quality, there’s a lot to like about these phones. The 6 Pro can get pretty expensive, so you’ll want to make sure you’re getting the best Pixel 6 or 6 Pro deal that you possibly can. We’ve rounded up all the current offers below and will continue to update them as new ones become available.

If you’re looking for a no-strings-attached deal on an unlocked Pixel 6 or 6 Pro, Amazon is your best bet at the moment. Discounts jump around quite a bit between different configurations, but right now you can save $75 on the Pixel 6 or $213 on the Pixel 6 Pro in the stormy black color variant.

Best Buy has partnered with AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon, so you can shop some carrier-specific deals through the tech retailer. Right now, AT&T and T-Mobile customers can save $400 on the Pixel 6 and $500 on the Pixel 6 Pro when purchasing on an installment plan. Verizon customers can save $500 on both models. 

Best Buy is also offering up to $250 off “unlocked” models, but the discount requires same-day activation through a carrier, so you’re not actually walking away with an unlocked phone.
