Google has three different Pixel 3 Black Friday deals in the pipeline, including outright discounts
Apart from Google’s new Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, every high-end smartphone you might be looking to purchase this holiday season is set to get a substantial Black Friday discount, freebie, or gift card at retailers like Target, Walmart, Best Buy, Costco, or Kohl’s. Yup, that includes the iPhone XS, XS Max, iPhone XR, iPhone X, and Samsung Galaxy Note 9.

But Android purists should rest assured, as the very search giant behind the making of the Pixel 3 duo is cooking up some neat Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2018 deals.

As reported by Droid-Life, you’ll be able to buy a Pixel 3 or 3 XL from the US online Google Store and get a half-price second unit between this Friday, November 16, and Wednesday, November 21. That’s not too shabby for two devices that were recently sold alongside a complimentary Nest Cam by Best Buy in what then seemed like a pretty decent combo.

But if BOGOs are not to your liking, and you’re interested in buying just the one “pure Google” phone, it’s probably wise to wait until November 22, when outright discounts of $150 and $200 will be offered on the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL respectively.

This actual Black Friday promo will end Sunday, November 25, but the next day, i.e. on Cyber Monday, the same two phones will be bundled with free Google Home Hub smart displays and $50 Google Store credit.

Meanwhile, the entire Google Home lineup is looking at a decent $50 markdown between November 22 and 26. We’re talking the “regular” Google Home, as well as the Home Hub and Home Max, but obviously, not the ultra-affordable Home Mini, which will only get a $24 price reduction.

If you want to save 15 extra bucks, you can bundle the Google Home Mini with a Chromecast, while a Google Home Max two-pack will be available for $150 off list on November 26 only.

New Pixel phones need to be launched around summer, so the CPU won't feel like dated and it will help the sales.

Explain how the CPU feels dated

The new snapdragon will come out early next year potentially only 2 months from now. Most who would consider the Pixel are looking for a high end device and that makes it a tough call for a tech savvy buyer

I have the Pixel XL, 1st gen. Still great device, and speedy even after 2 years. Never feels slow, or feel like it COULD be faster. Battery life after 2 years started taking a slight dive as with all phones, but nothing serious.

I don't even know how someone would consider buying a phone right now with the Snapdragon 900 so close to being released.

Not bad either way.

I wouldn't even take one for free. Too bad they shoved such a great camera into a crappy phone.

The $150/200 discount actually prices the phones where they should have been to begin with.
