Woot has the OG Google Pixel and Pixel 2 lineups on sale at great prices (refurbished)
While we wouldn't typically recommend buying an Android handset released in 2016 or even 2017, Google's Pixels are special in that they're guaranteed to receive timely software updates for much longer periods than phones from other brands.

The first-generation Pixel and Pixel XL, for instance, were initially promised just two major OS promotions, but now Google plans to deliver Android Q goodies as well and a stable rollout of the newest platform version is likely right around the corner. That makes these oldies incredibly desirable for bargain hunters in love with the stock Android experience, especially when the smaller model is available for as little as $109.99 today only, while the larger variant starts at $104.99.

If you're wondering why 2016's Pixel is more expensive than the Pixel XL, that's because the former is only on sale in a 128GB configuration, with the latter up for grabs in both 32 and 128 gig storage capacities. Obviously, the 128GB 5.5-incher is pricier than its 5-inch equivalent, at $119.99. Sold with a 90-day Woot limited warranty, the Google Pixel and Pixel XL are both "expected to have a moderate level of wear & tear" while fully supporting "most" US networks, from Verizon to AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint.

The same goes for a refurbished Pixel 2 priced at $199.99 with 64 gigs of local digital hoarding room, whereas a 64GB Pixel 2 XL can be purchased for only $224.99 over the next few hours. Naturally, the second generation is prettier and faster, with thinner screen bezels and a Snapdragon 835 processor in tow, but the Snapdragon 821-powered Pixel and Pixel XL are the ones that come with a headphone jack, strongly appealing to mobile industry nostalgics on super-tight budgets.
