took the wraps off its long-awaited 2020 midrange champ, the Pixel 4a
, and it is every bit the value-for-money ratio as we expected. Well, not at the OnePlus Nord
level, but then again the Pixel 4a
camera is way above the midrange level, too.
The newest member of the Pixel
phone family is barely out of the gate, yet there are already deals and incentives to be found, as the Google Pixel 4a preorders end today, the August 20 release date.
The best Google Pixel 4a price deal comes at Best Buy
As usual, Best Buy is sweetening the pot when it comes to purchasing newly-announced phones with a carrier through their stores or website. You can save $50 on the Pixel 4a and get the phone for just $299
with an eligible carrier activation. Of course, you can get it for the regular $349 price fully unlocked.
Google Pixel 4a price at Verizon, T-Mobile and AT&T
Google was one of the first phone-makers to include a functioning eSIM card in its Pixel line of phones, so that they can be programmed to run on various carriers at once, and the Pixel 4a is no exception.
Here's a list of the Google Pixel 4a prices and deals on US carriers, with Verizon offering a cool $110 discount over Google's price with a new line:
- Verizon: From $10/month with new line, or $379.99 paid in full. A $379.99 device payment purchase or full retail price purchase is required. Less $139.99 promo credit applied over 24 months; promo credit ends if eligibility requirements are no longer met. Promotion only applies to new Verizon customers and existing Verizon customers who are adding a new line with Unlimited plans.
Google Pixel 4a at Amazon
The Google Pixel 4a preorders were sold out shortly after the period began, and now Amazon is also out but stock should be replenished soon. In the meantime, you can always head over to Google's own store to grab the affordable phone of the summer.
Pixel 4a at the Google Store
- Price: $349 for 128GB ($299 with activation at Best Buy)
- Launch date: the Pixel 4a shipments will begin on August 20
If you are looking at the most obvious place to get the Pixel 4a, the Google Store
is a good bet, as right now it offers free two-day shipping when you enter code GOOGLESTORE2DAY during checkout.
Pixel 4a at Google Fi
Needless to say, you can get the Pixel 4a through Google's virtual Fi carrier
that piggybacks on the big US networks and it will work like a charm there. Unfortunately, Google Fi is offering it for the same price as anywhere, or $349.99, but you do get the plan deal that is only $17/month per line for three of those, and $10 per GB used, or unlimited data for $50 each.
