According to a (seemingly targeted) email that Sprint sent out recently, you can bring over an unlocked Google Pixel to the carrier and get up to $325 in service credits when you activate your device. That would in effect bring down the price of a new Google Pixel XL down to $445 out of pocket if you’re willing to stick with Sprint for a whole 24 months…
Deal: Get Pixelbook at 25% off: $750!
To take advantage of this offer, you have to head to a Sprint store to get a SIM card for your device, and then activate the device (which is probably going to run you a $30 fee, unfortunately). From there, you’ll get up to $13.55 per month in service credits for up to 24 months, which brings your savings to up to $325.
But there’s a difference between bringing the Pixel and the Pixel XL. A tipster for Android Police says that a Sprint rep told them they’ll get $10 a month for the standard Pixel and $13.55 for the XL. So that translates to $240 in service credits for the Pixel and $325 worth of service credits for the XL. That said, you have to keep your account in good standing either way.
But if you want to take advantage of this offer, you need to act pretty quickly. The fine print notes that this offer ends on December 31st. You also might have to pester a rep for the offer if you didn’t get the email, which may or may not work out so well depending on what your rep knows. One person was reportedly able to get the offer by chatting with a support rep online.
Here’s a screenshot of the full email (via Reddit):
