It's a fantastic time to be in the market for a Pixel 2 or 2 XL, especially if you're a Verizon customer and live near a Target store. Hot on the heels of a Google Store deal offering $50-75 off the latest Pixel phones, Target is offering a $250 gift card if you activate a Pixel 2 or 2 XL on a new Verizon line or a current one, and Verizon is offering a $300 bill credit spread out over 24 months. That adds up to a rather hefty $550 off Google's latest smartphones, if you're fine with some creative math. Target is also offering a $200 promo if you activate a 32GB Quite Black first-generation Pixel on a new Verizon line or a current one.
Now for the fine print: The $250 Target gift card for activating or upgrading a Verizon line with a purchased Pixel 2 or 2 XL requires device financing. If you want to take advantage of this promo, you'll have to make sure your order is completed and picked up in a brick-and-mortar Target store by the end of Saturday (December 23rd). The gift card can't be used to pay for this purchase, there's a limit of four per household, and this promo is US-only (sorry, Canada). Target also notes that quantities of this gift card are "limited."
The $300 Verizon promo expires Sunday, December 31st. It doesn't require a contract, but it will be applied as a $12.50 monthly bill credit over the course of 24 months.
Here are the variants of the Verizon Pixel 2 and 2 XL Target has available right now (before any promos are applied):
- Pixel 2 (64GB in Just Black, Clearly White, and Kinda Blue): $651 or $27.12 per month for 24 months
- Pixel 2 XL (64GB in Just Black and Black & White): $861 or $35.89 per month for 24 months
- Pixel 2 XL (128GB in Just Black): $966 or $40.25 per month for 24 months
Target is also offering a $200 gift card for activating or upgrading a Verizon line with a 32GB first-gen Pixel in Quite Black. The same terms for the $250 gift card for the Pixel 2 and 2 XL above apply.
Those of you who have been patient enough to wait for this kind of deal to drop have been handsomely rewarded. Go on and act quickly.
