Phone discounts on the Google Store usually only apply to the unlocked — and occasionally Google Fi — models. If you’re a Verizon subscriber, Google today is offering a $300 off the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL deal until year’s end.
The Google Store on Saturday kicked off a “save $300 off Pixel 4 or Pixel 4 XL” campaign that takes the form of promo credit applied to your Verizon account over two years. To clarify, this does not apply to the unlocked or Fi edition, though those currently see a $100-$150 price cut until midnight. Meanwhile, 2019 flagship purchases include a free (or Verizon discounted by $50 as a commenter points out) Nest Hub.
You have to be an existing Verizon subscriber to take advantage of this Pixel 4 discount, and can pay in one of three methods with each carrying their own terms:
- Finance with Verizon ($20.79-$29.13/month): Requires activation
- Finance with Google ($33.29-$41.62/month): Get your phone with Google’s monthly payment plan
- Pay in full ($799-$999): One-time payment. Pay with credit/debit card or Google Store credit
Verizon device payment purchase or full retail price purchase and upgrade req’d. Less $300 promo credit applied to account over 24 mos w/in 1-2 bill cycles; promo credit ends if eligibility requirements are no longer met; 0% APR. Device must complete activation by 12/31.
The first scenario sees you pay $20.79/month — instead of $33.29 — after a $12.50 promo credit. (Update: The same is somewhat true of the second option, but the Verizon credit is applied to your cellular bill and not when you pay Google every month.) The third sees you shell out in full and get the discount applied monthly through your carrier.
While not instant — like most other direct Google Store offers, this $499-$699 Pixel 4 price range with the Verizon discount is identical to what Google sold the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL at for the last few months of its life.
Google is in the final holiday push with its Store offering free 2-day shipping until next Friday. The company warns how “Pixels are in demand” and to “check the estimated delivery date at checkout, before confirming your purchase.”
