Here’s where to grab your shiny new Pixel 2 or Pixel 2 XL
Now that Google has officially announced the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, it’s time to get in line and order. If you’re fast enough, you’ll even snag a Home Mini for free for a limited time.
Verizon customers are in luck because they are again the exclusive carrier of the Pixel phones this year. You can pre-order the Pixel 2 or Pixel 2 XL on Verizon’s website or through the My Verizon app. The 64 GB Pixel 2 will run you $27.08 per month for 24 months at a total of $649.99, and the 128 GB version is $31.24 per month for 24 months at a total of $749.99. The 64 GB Pixel 2 XL is $35.41 per month for 24 months at a total of $849.99 or the 128 GB Pixel 2 XL is $39.58 per month for 24 months at a total of $949.99.
You can get the Pixel 2 in all three available colors of Kinda Blue, Just Black, or Clearly White and the Pixel 2 XL in Just Black or Black & White. If you trade in an eligible device you can even get a discount of up to $300 off the price. Plus, don’t forget the included free Google Home Mini with purchase.
While Verizon is the exclusive carrier for the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, T-Mobile is showing they are a Pixel friendly carrier by offering up to $325 to Pixel 2 owners. This promotion offers you half the value of a 64GB Pixel 2 phone when you purchase either a Pixel 2 or Pixel 2 XL and add a new line to T-Mobile. All you have to do is buy a new Pixel 2 phone, sign up for a new line or add a new line to your existing account, and show T-Mobile proof of purchase. They will then ship you a Mastercard gift card in the amount of $325.
If you’re looking to buy off contract then you can order directly from the redesigned Google Store where the Pixel 2 starts at $649 for the 64GB version and the 64GB Pixel 2 XL starts at $849. They only come in two different storage configurations so if you’re wanting more storage the 128GB models will run you an extra $100 for either phone. If you’re looking to drop the total a bit you can try Google’s trade-in program which can save you up to $410. Naturally, Google offers the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL in all available colors.
Best Buy is also carrying the 64GB and 128GB Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL in all available colors either off contract or on contract with Verizon. Don’t worry though, the free Google Home Mini is also available here. Although, there appears to be no trade in deals if you go this route.
