When it comes to Android phones, Google makes some of the best options, claiming multiple spots on our list of the best models for 2023. They’re powerful and user-friendly, and particularly great if you’re already part of Google’s ecosystem, using Gmail, Google Calendar and the rest.
There are quite a few different Pixel phones to choose from, but no matter which model is best for you, there’s no reason to pay more than you have to. Read on for the best Pixel phone deals you can shop right now, from both carriers and retailers.
The Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro are the latest in Google’s flagship lineup, and they’re great choices if you already use Google services to help organize your life. There’s also the previous-gen Pixel 6A, which recently had its starting price reduced by $100, and the new Pixel 7A, which is our favorite budget-friendly Android phone. Plus, there’s the new Pixel Fold, Google’s first foldable device, which officially hit shelves just this summer.
If you’re having a hard time deciding which Pixel model will work best for you, we’ve compared the Pixel 7 and 7 Pro to their previous-gen counterparts, with a full breakdown of their specs and performance. If affordability is your top priority, you’ll probably want to opt for the budget-friendly Pixel 7A or the even cheaper previous-gen Pixel 6A.
Pixel 7 and 7 Pro deals
The Pixel 7 and 7 Pro hit shelves back in October of last year, and you’ll find them in stock and available at most major retailers and carriers. There are tons of offers out there, whether you’re looking for an unlocked model, have an older device to trade in or are in need of a new service plan through a carrier.
There are a few benefits that come with buying your Pixel 7 directly from Google. For one, all models and colors are in stock, so you don’t have to worry about getting your ideal configuration, and Google lets you buy your phone outright, as opposed to on an installment plan, which some retailers and carriers require.
At the moment, Google isn’t offering any straightforward discount on the Pixel 7 series. But if you have a phone from Google, Apple or Samsung, you can save up to $620 with a trade-in — with the latest iPhones netting you the biggest discount.
Amazon is pretty much the only retailer offering straightforward discounts on the Pixel 7 series at the moment. You can save $90 on the obsidian variant of the basic Pixel 7 or $80 on the snow variant of the Pixel 7 Pro. Unfortunately, discounts on other configurations are pretty slim right now.
AT&T is offering some solid deals on both the Pixel 7 and 7 Pro. If you want the basic Pixel 7, you can pick it up for free with an eligible trade-in and an installment plan. If you want to upgrade to the Pixel 7 Pro, you can pick it up for just $10 per month when you purchase it on an installment plan with no trade-in required (though you can still trade-in your old phone for an even bigger discount).
Verizon is offering deals for both new and existing customers. New customers can save up to $900 with an eligible trade-in and a new line of service, which scores you the basic Pixel 7 for free. And if you’re an existing Verizon customer who qualifies for an upgrade, you can still save up to $700 on the Pixel 7, and up to $800 on the Pixel 7 Pro. Note, though, that there are quite a few configurations sold out at the moment.
Both new and existing customers can save on the Pixel 7 series right now at T-Mobile. New customers will save $400 when adding a new line of service on qualifying service plan. Or, if you’re already a T-Mobile customer, you can save up to $500 when trading in your old phone as long as you already have or switch to a qualifying service plan. The discount is applied in the form of monthly bill credits over a 24-month period.
Best Buy is offering a few different ways to save on the Pixel 7 and 7 Pro. If you’re after an unlocked model, you can save up to $500 with an eligible trade-in. Or, if you’re a Verizon customer, you can save $150 on the Pixel 7 and $200 on the Pixel 7 Pro with same-day activation. It’s worth noting that Best Buy does carry T-Mobile models as well, but they’re available only in-store.
Pixel 7A deals

CNET’s Lisa Eadicicco reviewed the budget-friendly Pixel 7A and found it has many of the same features as the Pixel 7, saying that “it has the same Tensor G2 processor as the Pixel 7, a new 64-megapixel main camera and a 6.1-inch screen just like its predecessor.” But it’s available at a lower price than the other models in the Pixel 7 lineup. And right now you can snag even more savings. Here are the best deals you can get on this new device.
Just like the Pixel 7 and 7 Pro, Google isn’t offering any direct discounts on the Pixel 7A at the moment. But you can save up to $620 with an eligible trade-in, with the latest iPhones getting you the biggest discount.
AT&T will knock $340 off its price for the Pixel 7A when you purchase the phone on an installment plan, which drops the price to just $5 per month — no trade-in required. The discount is applied in the form of monthly bill credits over a 36-month period.
Right now, T-Mobile is offering as much as $500 off the Pixel 7A in exchange for your old phone, which means you could get your hands on the new Google phone for free. To get the full savings, you’ll need to trade in an iPhone X (or later), a Samsung Galaxy S20 (or later), a Pixel 5 (or later) or a OnePlus 8 5G (or later). Your device will need to be in good condition to qualify.
You can save up to $600 when you trade in your old phone at Best Buy, which could score you the Pixel 7A for free. Best Buy is also offering some other bonuses, including a free month of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and three free months of YouTube Premium if you’re a new subscriber.
Pixel Fold deals
Samsung’s new generation of Z Series foldable phones has some competition from Google. The Pixel Fold is Google’s very first foldable device and features a 5.8-inch cover screen, a 7.6-inch OLED internal screen, 12GB of RAM, a next-gen Tensor G2 processor and an intimidating $1,799 starting price — though you can get your hands on one for less with the offers below.
If you want to grab the new Pixel Fold directly from Google, you can save up to $620 with an eligible trade-in — with the latest iPhones bringing you the biggest discount. Though Google also accepts phones from Samsung, LG, Motorola and others.
AT&T has a pretty incredible trade-in offer on the new Pixel Fold right now, as long as you have or switch to a qualifying unlimited plan. When you trade in your old phone from Apple, Google, Samsung or a handful of other brands, you’ll get as much as $1,000 back in the form of monthly bill credits. That drops the price down to just $24.45 per month. To get the full discount, your device needs to be valued at just $35 or more, so you may be surprised at how much that cracked iPhone in your drawer is worth. Just note that the discount is applied over a 36-month period.
Both new and existing Verizon customers can save on the Pixel Fold right now. If you’re adding a new line of service, you can save up to $1,000 when you trade in an eligible device as well. And if you’re already a Verizon customer who qualifies for an upgrade, you can still save up to $800 with an eligible trade-in.
CNET’s Lisa Eadicicco originally called Google’s affordable Pixel 6A the “best Android phone under $500.” It’s slightly smaller than the full-size Pixel 7, and features a 6.1-inch OLED display with a refresh rate of 60Hz. It’s equipped with 128GB of storage and 6GB of RAM, which is slightly less than the standard Pixel 7 has, but is still more than sufficient for most people’s needs. It also boasts 5G capabilities and support for Wi-Fi 6 for lightning-fast browsing. Since the release of the new Pixel 7A, Google has dropped the starting price of this previous-gen model by $100, so it’s already a solid value at just $349. And we’ve rounded up some of the best deals and offers out there so you can pick one up for even less.
Like with the Pixel 7 series, Google isn’t offering any straightforward discount on the Pixel 6A at the moment. But if you have an old device from Apple, Google, Samsung and more, you can still save up to $620 with a trade-in. Though if you’re shopping for the previous-gen Pixel 6A, you’ll probably be trading in an older phone that will net you closer to $200 or $300 in credit.
With the release of the Pixel 7A, Amazon has dropped its price on the Pixel 6A to $349, and you can pick up the charcoal color variant for around $30 less. You can also save up to $401 if you’ve got an older phone to trade in.
Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro deals
The previous-gen Pixel 6 is almost two years old at this point, and it’s getting pretty tough to find new models in stock. But if you’re committed to snagging one of these older flagship phones, Amazon still has a few available that you can pick up for hundreds less than the original price. Google no longer carries the Pixel 6 and most retailers and carriers have shifted their offers over to the newer Pixel 7 models, so this is just about the only deal you’ll find out there at the moment.
Amazon still has some previous-gen Pixel 6 phones that you can pick up at a discount right now. You can save up to $259 on the base model Pixel 6, or up to $154 on the Pixel 6 Pro, with no trade-in or new line required.
