Google suspends Pixel x Play Points promotion you probably didn't know existed

Outside of their respective price tags, both of Google's most recent Pixel phones have a lot in common, including some special offers for shoppers.

Google has suspended the promotion after detecting "technical issues" with the campaign.

Should you buy a Pixel 4a or a Pixel 5?

Google really doubled down on affordability with its 2020 lineup. There was no super premium option last year; there was the Pixel 4a, cheaper than its predecessor at $349, the Pixel $499 4a 5G, and the $699 Pixel 5.
