Google has the Pixel 3 and 3 XL on sale at $300 off with no strings attached whatsoever
Not yet, at least, and certainly not when you can purchase the two at a massive $300 discount with absolutely no strings attached or special requirements. We're talking no upfront activation on any specific carrier (or mobile virtual network operator), no monthly installment plan, bill credits, trade-in, or subscription needed.
All you have to do is visit the official online US Google Store right now and choose the variant that best fits your needs, starting with a 64GB no-notch 5.5-incher fetching just $499 outright. The same phone can be had in a 128 gig configuration in exchange for $599, while the jumbo-sized Pixel 3 XL is itself available at 600 bucks with half that internal storage space in tow. Finally, the notched 6.3-incher costs $699 instead of a $999 list price with 128GB local digital hoarding room, and all four Pixel 3/3 XL versions are up for grabs in your choice of three paint jobs, including "just black", "clearly white", and "not pink."
You can buy the substantially discounted Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL completely unlocked for use on any major carrier you want or you can get the devices bundled with a Verizon SIM card if you're certain that's the right network for you. Last but not least, you can even sign up for a monthly payment plan with 0 percent APR and spend nothing upfront.
As far as the actual phones are concerned, we'll be honest with you. They're not the fastest or prettiest in the world right now, but they run silky smooth software, they're guaranteed to receive timely updates for at least two more years, and they still have one of the all-around best cameras on the market.
