Buy a Pixel 3 on Verizon and get another one for free

Verizon’s BOGO deal is the best so far

Published

on

After all the leaks, the Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are now official. Both come with bigger screens, better cameras, and sadly, higher prices. If you want to get them at a more reasonable price, you could check out Verizon’s offer in the US.

For a limited time, you can buy one Google Pixel 3 or Pixel 3 XL through Verizon with monthly device payments for 24 months, and get a Pixel 3 (64GB) for free.

It’s basically a buy one, get one deal for the base model. If you wish to get a better variant, you can use the US$ 799.99 credit to get any other Pixel 3 or Pixel 3 XL model.

Of course, there’s a catch to these deals. Verizon wants you to add a new line to one of your Pixel 3 phones. Seems like a pretty fair deal, right? Pre-orders are now open through Verizon’s website.

The Pixel 3 phones are available in Clearly White, Just Black, and Not Pink colors. The Pixel 3 starts at US$ 33.33 per month for 24 months on Verizon device payment (US$ 799.99 retail price), while the Pixel 3 XL starts at US$ 38.74 per month for 24 months (US$ 929.99 retail price).
