Previous Google Nexus owners receiving discount off the Pixel 2


But for the next few hours only, you can take a whopping $400 off the Google Pixel 2 XL price with a "qualified" Verizon activation, which is a new record-high discount outside BOGO or trade-in affairs.

Buyers must activate the phone on a monthly installment plan.

If you are among the lucky ones, you have until February 28 to actually pull the trigger on a new Pixel 2. Also, the discount is not all upfront - you get $300 in bill credits and $100 instant savings. The Pixel 2 line ranges in price from $649 (Pixel 2 with 64GB) to $949 (Pixel 2 XL with 128GB). Once the 24 months are up, you will have paid $449.76 for the 64GB variant or $549.84 for the 128GB variant. To avail this deal from Best Buy and enjoy the Friday Phonedays promo, you just have to sign up for the standard 24-month installment plan of Verizon.

The cashback is valid on the Clearly White, Just Black and Kinda Blue colorways of the Pixel 2, and the Black & White and Just Black variants of the Pixel 2 XL.
