The Pixel 3a
at $399 and the 3a XL at $479 shoot many birds with one stone even without the $100 card deal that Google is running in partnership with retailers like Best Buy or B&H. In an increasingly image-centric world, they offer cameras on par or often better than those on $1000 phones.
The oily stock Android with 3-year upgrade guarantees, free media backup, large batteries, durable polycarbonate bodies that you don't have to baby, or easy and cheap repairability only add to the already formidable appeal of Google's computational photography.
With the $100 gift card promo that Google launched the Pixel 3a
and 3a XL
, though, they've become simply too irresistible to ignore, to the point that the black 3a is currently the "#1 seller" over at B&H. If you want to take advantage of what is essentially a 25% off deal for the 5.6" Pixel
3a, however, you'd have to hurry to the Google Store
, Best Buy, Amazon or B&H
, as it is good through tomorrow only, and that's that.
Buy Pixel 3a/3a XL and get $100 to spend on Google Store. Offer valid through May 18, 2019 at 11:59pm PT. Available only to US residents aged 18 years or older with US shipping addresses. Customers who checkout as guests are ineligible to receive the Promotional Balance.
Oh, well, not that reverting the Pixel 3a price to $399 will be a dealbreaker for what it offers, but the lack of a $100 gift to go with America's finest midranger would certainly take some of its veneer off.
On Amazon, where the new Pixels just went up for sale, the $100 deal is available for the black 3a XL only, but a gift card from Amazon will certainly go a longer way, too. Deal or no deal, the new Pixels are now slapped with the "#1 new release" label on Amazon, too, in the first day of their posting.
