The Pixel 4a is likely on its way, and just like the 3a before it, we expect it to be a mid-range phone for those who don’t want to shell out flagship prices for a new device and don’t mind a slightly less powerful phone. However, if you act fast, you might be able to grab a more powerful Pixel 4 or 4 XL for less than two-thirds of its normal price—and only $100 or so more than what you’d probably pay for a Pixel 4a.
All unlocked Pixel 4 and 4 XL models are on sale for at least $300 off—about a 38 percent price cut—through May 9th, or as long as supplies last. The price drop applies to online and in-store purchases from Amazon, Best Buy, and Google Store, but the deals differ slightly between each retailer.
Amazon and Google Store shoppers can grab the standard Pixel 4 XL with 64GB of storage for just $499 (normally $799), or the 64GB Pixel 4 XL for $599 (normally $899). For context, the much-less powerful Pixel 3a is about $300 right now, which isn’t that much less expensive than the 4’s sale price when compared to other smartphones.
If you want more storage, the 128GB Pixel 4 is just $599 (normally $899) and the Pixel 4 XL’s 128GB version is $699 (normally $999). Amazon also has a bundle where you can get a discounted Pixel 4 or 4 XL plus a $74 wireless charging base in one purchase.
Best Buy, on the other hand, is cutting prices even more by offering both phones for $350 off while supplies last.
Regardless of which store you buy from, you can customize your Pixel 4 or 4 XL’s color. Both phones are available in white, black, and orange color options, though specific availability may differ.
This is probably the best deal we’ll see on the Pixel 4 and 4 XL for some time. I get wanting to hold out to see if the 4a is worth waiting for, but considering that it likely won’t match either the 4 or 4 XL in terms of power, grabbing a discounted 4 or 4XL is likely a better option in the long run.
