Electronics Deals – October 18, 2018: Dell Chromebooks, Google Pixel 3 & More


Dell is discounting a number of items today, so if you were looking for a new laptop, monitor, TV or any PC accessories, then now is the time to pick them up. On the Chromebook side of things, the Dell Inspiron Chromebook 11 is on sale, coming in at $179. That is only $20 off of its regular price, so it's not a huge deal, but this was just announced a few weeks ago. So seeing any sort of price drop is pretty impressive. On top of that, Dell's popular 27-inch monitor is also on sale for $197.99. This is part of Dell's InfinityEdge lineup, so you're getting a good looking monitor, with virtually no bezels. Though this one is a 1080p monitor so it's not that incredible, but it's also under $200.

The Sony Xperia XZ3 is also available now for those that are looking for a new smartphone. It sports a 6-inch curved OLED display, powered by the Snapdragon 845 chipset, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. There is also a 3300mAh capacity battery thrown in for good measure. This is a really good smartphone for those that want something high-end, but also want a great camera and up-to-date software. That is because Sony is launching the Xperia XZ3 with Android 9 Pie, which is rather impressive to say the least. The only other smartphone to launch with Pie, other than Pixel 3, is the Huawei Mate 20 series. So this is definitely a good achievement for Sony.

Google's latest smartphone, the Pixel 3 is also available now. After being in pre-order status for about a week. Verizon is the only carrier selling the phone, once again. And Verizon has a pretty sweet deal on the Pixel 3. If you buy a Pixel 3 through Verizon, you can get a second one for free, or "on us" as carriers like to say. This does require at least one new line of service. So you can add a line to your account and take advantage of this offer. You can buy a Pixel 3 XL and a Pixel 3, or two of the same phone. But the important thing to note here is that Verizon is only giving you $799 credit, so if you purchase two Pixel 3 XL's, you are getting $799 off of that phone via monthly bill credits. That effectively brings the price down to about $130, which is still a great price on the Pixel 3 XL.


All of the deals listed below are accurate for today, and will expire at midnight PST on their expiration date. But keep in mind that some of these deals may end before then, if stock runs low or simply runs out. It's also important to note that Amazon and other retailers, tend to fluctuate their prices. Whether that is to price match other retailers or to undercut the competition. There are some really good deals down below, and you'll want to pick these up before they are gone. You can check out Amazon's latest lightning deals (which are only available for a few hours) right here, there's plenty to take advantage of today.
