It's prudent to buy Google products at certain times of the year since they are often discounted on special occasions. The next sale season is Easter, and Google UK has a range of deals to entice you. Not only can you get money off some of its newest products like Pixel 4 and Nest Mini, but a few older devices are also down in price.
A few days ago, Android Police named the Pixel 3a as Phone of the Year for 2019. Praise was given for minimal compromises combined with a very competitive price (at least in the US and a few other countries). Almost as if somebody was waiting for this opportunity, two of the biggest electronics retailers have quietly discounted both sizes by $120, bringing them down to new lows of $279.99 for the regular and $359.99 for the XL.
Black Friday is out of the way, but that doesn't mean the deals have all ended. It's a time-honored tradition for retailers to milk these commercial holidays for all they're worth, and so today is Cyber Monday.
It's the most wonderful time of year for tech aficionados who've been waiting to buy some new gear. You've probably seen a lot of US-only discounts on the site over the past few days, so it's about time we took a look at some of the best Black Friday deals across the pond in the UK.
With Black Friday less than two weeks away, retailers have already started discounting some items and teasing their full-blown deal extravaganza. Google is joining them today with its own early look: The entire Google Store front page has been themed with black and a list of upcoming sales is displayed below it.
Team 17 is best known for the iconic game series about anthropomorphic worms blowing each other to smithereens, but the developer also has some other solid titles to choose from on mobile. The Escapists 2: Pocket Breakout that came out earlier this year and Sheltered are among the games on sale — in fact, the whole Team 17 catalog is discounted right now.
Given that AP is a US-based site, we don't often post about deals for other countries. However, the Google Store is offering some interesting deals for Easter in some European countries. The headline here is €250 off of a Pixel 3 or Pixel 3 XL, though there are also some deals on Home/Chromecast products.
Not to be outdone by the spring sale from Amazon that we took a look a yesterday, the Google Store is running a promotion in the UK right now that sees many of its Home products heavily discounted. Most of the prices are as good as on Black Friday weekend, but the £100 off the Home Max is even better. It's not just Google's own hardware either, as a selection of Nest cameras and thermostats are also on offer.
Google is in the midst of transforming its music and video subscription services under the YouTube name, and that includes some small pricing changes. Students can get a deal, though. Google is reportedly announcing student-only pricing for YouTube Music Premium and YouTube Premium today. Both options shave several bucks off the monthly price, and it's even cheaper if you act fast.
