Where to buy the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro
0

Because of how well received it was by reviewers and Android fans, the Pixel 6 has become a hard phone to buy. Here’s where to find the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro in stock to buy Google’s best phones for yourself.

Due to the ongoing chip shortage, combined with “high demand” for the Pixel 6 Pro, some customers’ pre-orders have been delayed, while retailers are having trouble keeping the phones in stock. At one point, even the Google Store was unable to ship new orders for the Pixel 6 Pro until at least January. Thankfully, it’s all too easy to get the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro from places other than the Google Store.

Where Pixel 6 & Pixel 6 Pro are in stock

If you’re shopping for an unlocked phone in the US, other than the Google Store, there are only four authorized retailers where you can buy the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro: Amazon, Best Buy, B&H, and Target. Of course, all four retailers are limited to selling only what they can get from Google, and the demand for Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro phones is currently massively outweighing the available supply.

The two retailers to really keep an eye on are Target and Best Buy, as it’s possible that your local store could have Pixel 6 units in stock at the store. Similarly, both retailers offer the ability to have your order shipped to your local store for pickup – in case shipping to your home isn’t a good option for your situation.

We’ll keep an eye on the inventories of each retailer over the coming weeks and keep you updated on the quickest ways to buy the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro.

Latest update: As of February 8, 2022, with the holiday shopping rush now long behind us, essentially all retailers have the Pixel 6 in stock and ready to ship, and most even have the Pixel 6 Pro. Even B&H Photo, which had long listed the Pixel 6 series as “coming soon,” has finally begun selling the smaller phone to customers.

If you’re looking for a discount, Best Buy is currently offering $50 off the Pixel 6 — but not Pixel 6 Pro — if you activate it immediately. The Google Store also continues to be one of the best places to buy the Pixel 6 or 6 Pro, between its full availability of color/storage options and up to 10% promotional credit for Google One subscribers. But if you’re wanting to get the phones in a hurry, your local Target or Best Buy may have one on the shelf.

Pixel 6 & Pixel 6 Pro from carriers

In the United States, cell carriers have a lot of weight in the smartphone industry. As such, it shouldn’t be surprising to learn that many of them can get you the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro faster than retailers. Better yet, many carriers can offer financing for your new phone that’s bundled in with your cell phone bill.

On the flip side, though, you’ll end up paying more for the smaller Pixel 6 if you buy through AT&T or Verizon, as these carriers are selling the mmWave variants which cost $100 more than unlocked models. Worse, AT&T has been noted to sell all of their Pixel 6 phones for $40 more than any other retailer or carrier, for whatever reason.

Latest update: As of February 8, 2022, the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro are significantly easier to find, with every. Of particular note, Verizon has all three colors of Pixel 6 Pro — Sorta Sunny, Cloudy White, and Stormy Black — and multiple storage options on-hand and ready to ship. More importantly, Verizon offers fast and easy local pickup options.
