If you hate the Pixel 3 XL notch
badly enough that you’re willing to give its predecessor a chance, you might be interested in Best Buy’s massive $400 discount
, offered well ahead of Black Friday.
The catch is you need to agree to a Verizon device payment plan, but if you don’t mind buying the Google Pixel
2 XL in refurbished condition, we have some great (separate) news. Amazon-owned Woot has both the 6-inch stock Android phone and its 5-inch brother on sale today starting at $440 and $420 respectively.
This is an extremely reputable retailer, mind you, focused on killer one-day deals like this one, with a 90-day limited warranty included, as well as free standard shipping provided for Amazon Prime members.
The refurbished Pixel 2 and 2 XL
are available at heavily marked-down prices with your choice of 64 or 128GB internal storage space in two color options each. The smaller model can be had in “Just Black” or “Clearly White”, while the XL variant comes coated in black or a black and white combo colloquially known as panda.
420 bucks will obviously buy you an entry-level 64 gig Google Pixel 2
, with the same handset fetching just $30 more in a 128GB configuration. Meanwhile, the Pixel 2 XL costs $439.99 in a 64 gig version and a very reasonable $469.99 with 128GB digital hoarding room.
In closing, it’s also important to mention Woot’s refurbs are listed as GSM unlocked in addition to Verizon-compatible. That means Sprint is the only one of America’s “big four” networks where you cannot activate these bargains.
