Deal: Unlocked Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL on sale for as low as $5000
However, if you can't afford to pay such a high price and don't want to sign up to a long-term contract, your best bet is to try and buy a refurbished unit. As it happens, DailySteals has both the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL on sale for much less than Google's asking price.
Not to mention that these phones come unlocked and you can use them with any carrier in the United States, but keep in mind that some carriers like Sprint may require you call and activate the device before using it.
In any case, DailySteals now offers the unlocked Pixel 3 for just $500 and the Pixel 3 XL for $600. Make sure you add the promo code CHPSKTPXL3 at checkout to reduce the price by $100 and bring it to the amounts mentioned earlier.
