Verizon has made it official. They will be making the Google Pixel available for just $10/month on Black Friday, while the larger Pixel XL will be available for just $15/month on Black Friday. That effectively makes the Google Pixel $240 after 24 months and the Pixel XL $360. Typically the Pixel would sell for $27.08/month and the Pixel XL would cost you $32.08/month. The way that this deal works is similar to T-Mobile’s “free” smartphone deals they have been running. Where you will get a monthly bill credit that will make up the difference for either the Pixel or Pixel XL. This bill credit won’t start until about 2-3 billing cycles after you purchase the device (this is to make sure you don’t buy the phone then head out the door to another carrier).
On top of that, Verizon will also be selling Google Home for $99. Much like Best Buy and the Google Store are also doing, beginning tomorrow and running through November 28th. However, the sale on the Pixel and Pixel XL are only good on November 24th and 25th. Both Pixel and Google Home deals are good in-store and online.
This sale on the Google Pixel and Pixel XL are likely the best sales you’ll find this Black Friday. As they are taking more than half off of the regular price (it’s actually closer to two-thirds off), and if you’ve been looking for a new smartphone you definitely can’t go wrong with the Pixel and Pixel XL. Verizon is also the only carrier in the US that is selling the device. However their model is unlocked so you can take it to another carrier (but that would mean you won’t get your monthly billing credits). The Pixel and Pixel XL are basically the same smartphone, both running on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor with 4GB of RAM and 32GB or 128GB of storage. The Pixel sports a 5-inch Full HD display with a 2770mAh battery, while the larger Pixel XL has a 5.5-inch QHD display and a larger 3450mAh battery. Both are running on Android 7.1 and include the Google Assistant, which is exclusive to the Pixel and Pixel XL right now.
