Google / CNET

While Google has only been in the phone business for less than a decade, it's certainly made an impact in its short time. Its Google Pixel lineup has gone a long way to making up some of the best phones on the market today, bringing in competition to both Apple and Samsung. Like all of them though, the biggest hurdle is the asking price.

Whether you need the latest and greatest Pixel 8 Pro, the versatile Pixel Fold or a less expensive alternative, such as the Pixel 7A or the previous-gen Pixel 6A, you don't have to spend a ton for a great phone. We've laid out the top deals below. However, if you see a deal you want to take advantage of, be quick about it. Phone carriers and other retailers offering discounts on phones and accessories can change these prices at their discretion and without notice.

Hey, did you know? CNET Deals texts are free, easy and save you money.

Not sure what the right model is for you? We've done a compare-and-contrast between the Pixel 8 and its previous-generation counterpart, with a full breakdown of their specs and performance.

Pixel 8 and 8 Pro deals

Released in late 2023, the Pixel 8 and 8 Pro are the latest phones in Google's flagship lineup. They're equipped with a next-gen Tensor G3 processor, new AI features and improved screens. You have a few ways to buy one for less right now.

Google is offering discounts on Pixel 8 phones until June 22. The base-spec Pixel 8 is available from $549, a $150 savings, while the Pixel 8 Pro currently starts at $749 -- $250 off its usual price. 

You can save even more by trading in your old phone. Google will give you up to $500 off depending on the device you hand in and its condition. Plus, you could get as much as $550 back in the form of bill credits if you switch to Google Fi. 

AT&T is offering savings on Pixel phones purchased on an installment plan. Score the Google Pixel 8 Pro for $0 a month by trading in an eligible device with a trade-in value of up to $1,040. You must also switch to an eligible unlimited data plan.

The Pixel 8 128GB will cost you $11 a month, but you can get savings of up to $444 in the form of bill credits over 36 months, with no trade-in required. The Pixel 8 256GB will get you a credit of $444 and still costs $11 a month. AT&T is also throwing in a free Pixel Watch 2 with any Pixel 8 series phone, as long as you also open a qualifying line. You can also save 50% on Google Pixel Buds until July 11 when you buy a Pixel 8 series phone.

Verizon currently has no direct discounts on Pixel 8 or Pixel 8 Pro phones themselves. However, you can get free 2-day shipping when you open a new line. Additionally, the carrier is waiving activation fees for customers who open new Verizon lines.

T-Mobile customers on a Go5G Plus or Go5G Next plan can get a free Pixel 8 or 8 Pro with an eligible trade-in or a new line of service. That gets you the Pixel 8 for free and the 8 Pro for only $200. If you don't have a trade-in, you can get the Pixel 8 128GB for $599 right now, down from $699. You can also score the Pixel 8 Pro for $799, down from $999.

If you're on a different qualifying service plan, you can still save up to $600 with a trade-in. This discount is applied as bill credits over 24 months. Note that the Pixel 8 Pros are out of stock at the moment, but you could save big if you're willing to wait a bit.

Best Buy is offering a discount of $250 on Pixel 8 Pro phones. All unlocked Pixel 8 phones are $150 off. You can get up to $325 trade-in credit on unlocked models through their trade-in program. You also get one month of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate for free and three months of Google One (100GB storage) with either Pixel phone. 

These discounts apply to Verizon carrier phones as well. 

If the Pixel 8 Pro is what you're after, there's now a promo at Spectrum giving $450 off. The Pixel 8 is $275 off. Plus, you can get an extra $100 off when you bring in a qualifying device and purchase and activate either the 8 Pro or the 8.

Mint Mobile is currently offering the Pixel 8 for $180 off, bringing the price down to $609. The Pixel 8 Pro is a staggering $440 off, bringing the total down to just $649. For either of these phones, you'll get six months of free wireless when you sign up for a six-month plan or longer.

Target currently stocks only 128GB models online, but it costs only $549 right now, down from its regular price of $699. 

Pixel 8A deals

The Pixel 8A is brand-new -- we literally just reviewed it in May this year-- and at its unlocked list price of $500, it's a tremendous value. Let's see if we can make it even better.

Google/CNET

AT&T is now offering new and existing customers the Google Pixel 8A for just $3 per month or for a one-time payment of $520. AT&T is also offering $100 off a pair of Ray-Ban Meta glasses with a qualifying plan when you buy a Pixel 8A. You can also get Google Pixel Buds for 50% off with the purchase of a Pixel 8A, or a Pixel Watch 2 for $6 per month with an eligible plan.

Google is offering the Pixel 8A for free when you switch to Google Fi. The $499 discount is available in the form of bill credits over a period of 24 months. 

Pixel 7 and 7 Pro deals

The previous-gen Pixel 7 and 7 Pro hit shelves in October 2022, and you'll find them in stock and available at most major retailers and carriers. Whether you're looking for an unlocked model, have an older device to trade in or need a new service plan through a carrier, several offers are available to you. 

There are no direct discounts on the Google Pixel 7 or 7 Pro through Google right now, but you can trade in your old phone from Google, Apple, Samsung and other brands for up to $450 off (with the latest iPhones netting you the biggest discount). 

AT&T isn't offering comprehensive deals on the Pixel 7 right now, but if you're looking to trade in your old Apple, Samsung or Google phone, you can save up to $465. Newer models (especially iPhones) earn the highest trade-in value. Right now, AT&T isn't carrying the 7 Pro. If you buy any connected device you can save $100 on Ray Ban Meta glasses with a qualifying plan.

Although Verizon is no longer carrying the Pixel 7 Pro, the Pixel 7 is still available. Though there are no direct discounts, Verizon occasionally offers perks to go along with new phone purchases. These deals fluctuate so check back often. For now, new and existing customers can get 0% APR on a new Pixel 7. The carrier is also offering free 2-day shipping when you open a new line.

Mint is having a limited-time offer where if you buy six months of service you get six months for free. Both phones are in stock but available only in a locked model.

Pixel 7A deals

Richard Peterson/CNET

CNET's Lisa Eadicicco reviewed the budget-friendly 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." It's available at a lower base price than the other models in the Pixel 7 lineup, but unless you can find it for significantly less than the 8A (or a great deal with your carrier), go for the newer phone.

Best Buy isn't currently offering discounts on the Google Pixel 7A, but you can trade in a device to save a good amount off the standard price. While technically you can get up to $755, with iPhones netting you the most back, your trade-in amount can't exceed the value of the Pixel 7A, so you'll have to see how much your trade-in would be worth. You can also save if you buy open-box phones, but availability varies by location.

The purchase also comes with one free month of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, three free months of Google One and three free months of YouTube Premium (for new subscribers).

AT&T doesn't have a discount on the Pixel 7A right now, but you can potentially get trade-in credit. You can also get the Google Pixel Buds for 50% off with the purchase of this phone. AT&T is also offering $100 a pair of Ray Ban Meta glasses with a qualifying line.

You can trade in a qualifying device and get an instant savings of $100 if you purchase and activate a new 7A.

Target isn't offering any discounts on the Pixel 7A. However, Target Circle card holders can save 5%.

Pixel Fold deals

Samsung's new generation of Z-series foldable phones has some competition from Google. The Pixel Fold is Google's very first foldable device and features a 5.8-inch cover screen, a 7.6-inch OLED internal screen, 12GB of RAM, a Tensor G2 processor and an intimidating $1,799 starting price, although you can get your hands on one for less with the trade-in offers below. 

Google is offering the Pixel Fold at a steep $500 discount right now. This deal lasts until June 22 and applies to all color and model configurations. Plus, you can save up to $435 with trade-in credit for an eligible device. 

AT&T is offering up to $1,124 in bill credits with a trade-in, the purchase of the new phone and a qualifying plan. You can also get $400 in credits on a Pixel Watch 2, which nets you this smartwatch for free with a qualifying Unlimited plan. AT&T is also offering Google Pixel Buds at 50% off when you buy a new Google phone. You can also save $100 on a pair of Ray-Ban Meta glasses when you purchase a qualifying plan for this device or get a promotional card worth the value of your trade-in.

Both new and existing Verizon customers can save on the Pixel Fold right now. If you're adding a new line of service and you have an eligible trade-in, you can save up to $800. If you're already a Verizon customer who qualifies for an upgrade, you can save up to $800 when you trade in an eligible device. If you open up a new qualifying line, you could get $899 off. 

Verizon is also offering an Amazon Fire TV 65-inch Omni Series 4K with purchase, valid until July 3. 

Get an instant savings of $100 when you get the Pixel Fold, activate it and trade in a qualifying device. 

Pixel 6A deals

Lisa Eadicicco/CNET

CNET's Lisa Eadicicco originally called Google's affordable Pixel 6A the "best Android phone under $500." It's slightly smaller than the Pixel 7, with a 6.1-inch OLED display with a refresh rate of 60Hz. It's equipped with 128GB of storage and 6GB of RAM, plus 5G capabilities and support for Wi-Fi 6 for fast browsing. After the release of the Pixel 7A, Google dropped the starting price by $100, so it was already a solid value at $349. 

Right now, after the release of the Pixel 8A, discounts are few and far between, and the phone is largely out of stock. Still, we've collected the best deals we can find below. 

Verizon is currently offering the Google Pixel 6A for the standard retail price of $400. It also has an activation fee of $35. That brings your total to $435 as there are no current discounts right now. However, you can get up to $400 back in the form of bill credits if you want to add a new smartwatch. You can also score up to $550 off a new tablet.

In addition, you can get free 2-day shipping or express in-person pickup with a qualifying line.

Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro deals

The Pixel 6 is almost 3 years old, so new models are scarcer than before. If you're committed to snagging one of these older flagship phones, know that Google no longer carries the Pixel 6, and most retailers and carriers have shifted their offers over to the newer Pixel 7 or Pixel 8 models, so deals are limited.

The 6 and 6 Pro are only sporadically available at Verizon, and there are currently no straightforward discounts. However, Verizon is offering free 2-day shipping or express in-store pickup with purchase.

The 6 Pro is out of stock right now and only available by express pickup.
