Best Buy drops Google Pixel 2 XL price to $200 with monthly payments (down from $850)
They say every ending is a new beginning, and as far as the recently discontinued Pixel 2 XL is concerned, that may soon apply to Pixel 3a and 3a XL sales, but it already does in terms of crazy deals on the 2017-released big guy. No longer available directly from Google, the Snapdragon 835-powered 6-incher is currently up for grabs at Best Buy for an insanely low price with Verizon device payment plans.

A measly $8.32 a month is enough to buy subscribers of the nation's largest wireless service provider a 64GB "Just Black" Google Pixel 2 XL, which amounts to a grand total of $199.68 after 24 installments. That's down from a list price of $850, although obviously, the stock Android-running phone got a bunch of discounts on the heels of the Pixel 3 and 3 XL launch. But until today, the savings you were looking at with or without installment plans ranged from $200 to as much as $450. You couldn't even purchase refurbished units for less than $400 or so.

This time around, Best Buy offers a total markdown of $650.16, including a $450 instant discount and $8.33 monthly bill credits for the duration of your two-year Verizon commitment. Naturally, you can also choose to pay for the Pixel 2 XL in full upfront, but in that particular case, you only stand to save 450 bucks and need to cough up $399.99.

If you don't have a problem with the terms and conditions of Best Buy's latest killer deal, it's essentially impossible to deny the appeal of a $200 handset with always smooth, up-to-date software, a beefy processor under the hood, a decent 4 gigs of RAM, an excellent 12MP rear-facing camera, a large and sharp P-OLED display (with no ghastly notch), a respectable 3,520 mAh battery, and dual front-firing stereo speakers. That's no longer a flagship device by current standards, but it completely crushes its competition at a new all-time low price with minimal strings attached.
