The holiday season may be long behind us, but thankfully for consumers, the season of deals, offers and discounts doesn't seem to going anywhere, especially with Valentine's Day coming up shortly. Best Buy is now joining the party, as the national retailer is now offering a $50 discount on the gold-colored model of the current flagship smartphone from Google – the Nexus 6P. The smartphone is available in 32 and 64 GB versions, and the rebate is applicable on both, as per the listing on the retailer's official website. While the discount itself is nothing to scoff at, there's even more good news for those wanting to get their hands on the latest Nexus phablet. The retailer is also offering a $25 gift card to go with the $50 rebate, bringing the effective discount to a pretty decent $75.
With the $50 cash discount, the price of the 64 GB version of the Nexus 6P now stands at $499, while the 32 GB model can now be bought for only $449. While Best Buy hasn't made it clear how long the discount will last, it is clearly marked as a 'Sale', and not a permanent price reduction, so interested users will do well to make their minds up quickly, lest the scheme is withdrawn soon. One thing to note is that the handset is currently also discounted by the exact same amount on the Google Play Store, but the $25 gift card is a definite bonus for those wanting to grab it from Best Buy. However, the offer on Google Play is applicable to all versions of the device, as also the Nexus 5X.
Talking about the Nexus 5X, the device got a permanent price cut last month, and the 32 GB model is currently available at $349 on the Google Play Store. Both the Nexus smartphones have been the subjects of a number of offers and discounts since their launch last year, and with the 5X already getting an official price cut, it remains to be seen if the $50 discount on the Nexus 6P will also be made permanent at some stage in the near future.
