Best Buy and B&H are bundling cool Pixel 4/4 XL discounts with sweet e-gift cards
Android purists unwilling to wait or settle for the upcoming mid-range Pixel 4a with a trendy hole punch display in tow will be happy to know the oft-discounted high-end Pixel 4 and 4 XL are on sale again at substantial discounts from at least two major US retailers.
What's special about these hot new deals are not the actual price cuts, but rather a $200 e-gift card both Best Buy and B&H Photo Video throw in with shipments of Google's latest flagship models in unlocked 64GB variants. Interestingly, the former retailer can only hook you up with that very cool gift if you're looking to purchase "Just Black" flavors of the Pixel 4 or 4 XL, while the latter is running this compelling deal on both black and "Clearly White" hues.
On top of the $200 digital coupons, the two retailers are shaving $100 off the regular prices of the 64GB Pixel 4 pair with absolutely no strings attached, but if you don't mind one particular string, you can actually save even more money at Best Buy. That's because the smaller Pixel 4 model, which normally starts at $800, can currently be purchased for as little as $599.99 with an upfront activation on a new line of service or new account altogether at Verizon or Sprint.
Upgrading Verizon and Sprint customers, as well as those looking to activate the 5.7-inch handset on an existing or new AT&T account, need to cough up $649.99, which still represents a substantial $150 savings in addition to the $200 offered for future purchases on the aforementioned e-gift card.
The same $200 + $200 discount applies to the jumbo-sized 64GB Pixel 4 XL when activated on a new Sprint or Verizon line or account, while the two carriers' upgrading subscribers and all of AT&T's customers are looking at saving $150 on top of scoring a gratis $200 e-voucher.
While certainly divisive due to their somewhat outdated designs and unimpressive specifications (by ultra-high-end standards), Google's Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL arguably deliver plenty of bang for your buck when marked down so steeply. After all, we are talking about two of the world's most impressive cameraphones right now, with silky smooth software pre-loaded, several major updates guaranteed, and top-notch Snapdragon 855 processing power also on deck.
