Google's awesome Black Friday deals will include hefty Pixel 7, 7 Pro, and Pixel Watch discounts
UPDATE: Thanks to an anonymous tipster and a couple of resourceful Redditors, we can now add another sweet Google Store Black Friday 2022 promotion to the Pixel 7 and 7 Pro-headlined list. 

Although it's not officially etched in stone yet, it sure looks like the reasonably well-reviewed and decidedly feature-packed Pixel Watch will score its first-ever discount soon, dropping from a $349.99 starting price to as little as $299.99 between November 17 and November 28.

Obviously, there's no way to be certain that the screenshot below and the one shared on Reddit are legit, but there's rarely smoke without fire in these cases, and Google has been known to tease some of its early holiday deals using this exact same method before.


That also seems to confirm the end date of the company's entire Black Friday sale this year, although November 28 just so happens to be the Monday after Thanksgiving, aka Cyber Monday, which means a second wave of (very similar) deals could hit the US Google Store for at least an extra 24 hours. Our original post follows below.

Google is setting the stage for the year's biggest shopping day, officially revealing exactly what's in store for stock Android-loving bargain hunters come November 17. That's next Thursday, mind you, rather than the final Thursday of the month, which means you'll get plenty of time to complete your holiday shopping well before Thanksgiving.

By far the most compelling US Google Store deals set to be made available during the search giant's undoubtedly extended Black Friday 2022 sale will see the Pixel 7 and 7 Pro drop to lower-than-ever prices of $499 and $799 respectively.

These are the first outright discounts with no strings attached, no special requirements, and no gifts included for the two "pure Google" phones released just last month, slashing an almost surprisingly generous $100 and $150 off the regular starting prices of the 6.3-inch Pixel 7 and 6.7-inch Pixel 7 Pro.

Digital hoarders should wait and see what kind of markdowns the non-128GB storage configurations will get, although it seems reasonable to expect the exact same discounts across the board.

We're also fairly certain these deals will be available from other retailers as well on or around Black Friday, so if you prefer shopping at Best Buy or Amazon, we'd definitely advise you to keep an eye out after November 17 (or even before that date).

At $499 and up, the "vanilla" Pixel 7 could easily be thebest affordable phone available this holiday season, packing the same Tensor G2 processor as its big brother while sporting a reasonably smooth 90Hz AMOLED screen and very capable dual rear-facing cameras.

In turn, the Pixel 7 Pro is likely to prove one of the greatest alternatives to Samsung's Galaxy S22 Ultra or Apple's iPhone 14 Pro Max... at only $799, absolutely shining in the display and camera performance departments while rocking a more refined design and (at least for now) smoother software experience than its predecessor.

The Pixel 7 and 7 Pro are not the only devices Google plans to discount ahead of Black Friday, mind you, although the rest of the company's early holiday deals look far less exciting on paper while also seeming... oddly familiar:

  • Pixel 6a - $299 (down from $449)
  • Chromecast with Google TV (HD or 4K) - $19.99 and up (after $10 discounts)
  • Pixel Buds A-Series - $64 (discounted from $99)
  • Nest Hub (2nd Gen) - $49.99 (50 percent off)
  • Nest Thermostat - $89.99 (down from $129.99)
  • Nest Cam (battery) - $119.99 (after $60 discount)
  • Nest Doorbell (battery) - $119.99 (down from $179.99)
