The Google Pixel 6a is now just $299 at Best Buy – an absolute steal
The Google Pixel 6a is just $299 (opens in new tab) with an eligible carrier activation this week at Best Buy. That’s not only a massive saving of $150, but it’s the lowest non-trade-in price we’ve seen yet on this excellent mid-range Android flagship.
Today’s deal at Best Buy addresses our main complaint about the Google Pixel 6a at launch – that it’s just too darned expensive for what you get. At $299, however, it’s hard to complain. Not only do you get a super-powerful Tensor chip under the hood, but you’re getting some fantastic camera features, like Magic Eraser, as well as the clean Android experience you’d expect from a Google device.
The catch with this Google Pixel 6a deal at Best Buy is that you’ll need to activate your device on AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, or Google Fi to be eligible for a rebate. If you’re going to be pairing your device with one of the best prepaid plans on the market, then we’d recommend checking out Amazon’s current price of $399 (opens in new tab) for the Pixel 6a. That’s not only the cheapest price yet from the retailer, but it’s a simple upfront deal that doesn’t require you to jump through any hoops.
Another great option at Amazon this week is the standard Google Pixel 6 for $499 (was $599) (opens in new tab). Again, this is the lowest price yet on the device, and a deal that doesn’t require a trade-in or a plan. Should you go for this model? It’s a tough call, but it’s worth it if you value a slightly better screen (90Hz vs 60Hz refresh rate) or a more premium build. The standard Pixel 6 features a classier glass-backed design, whereas the Pixel 6a features a more mid-range polymer (i.e., plastic) build. Either way, however, you’re getting an excellent price for a very, very solid Android device.
