Best Buy sells Google's Pixel 3 and 3 XL for Verizon with free Nest Cam right now
But while Samsung’s hot-selling Galaxy Note 9, for instance, has been on special offer more times than we can count at various retailers lately, discounts on the newest “pure Google” handsets are almost impossible to find.
Almost, because Best Buy is now selling the Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL with complimentary Nest Cam indoor security cameras, technically letting you save the latter’s full $199.99 retail price. An outright markdown of the two phones’ MSRPs would have obviously been preferable, but a cool gift like that is definitely better than nothing.
All you need to do to obtain it is add a Pixel 3 or 3 XL to your cart and commit to a Verizon activation on a device payment plan. The gratis Nest Cam will be added to your cart automatically, and you’ll be left paying at least $33.34 a month for two years.
That amounts to around $800, which is the suggested retail price of a 64GB Pixel 3, while a 128 gig variant of the no-notch 5.5-incher will set you back a grand total of $900 ($37.50 a month for two years).
A 64GB Pixel 3 XL costs the same exact $900, while a 128 gig configuration requires 24 monthly payments of $41.67 each, totaling a few pennies over a full $1,000.
Nest is a wholly owned subsidiary of Alphabet, which is also Google’s parent company, explaining this promotional partnership that needs Best Buy as an intermediary for some reason too.
