If you’re a Verizon subscriber, here’s a $500 discount on Google’s Pixel 2 XL

Savings this good are almost criminal.

Best Buy and Verizon really want to sell you a Google Pixel 2 XL, like really bad. In fact, so bad that they’re offering up a $500 discount. To put it plainly, you can buy a 64GB Pixel 2 XL from both Best Buy or Verizon for just $350. Yea, that’s $500 off the sticker price.

But of course, there’s a kicker. The main one is that you have to be a Verizon subscriber and use it on the company’s wireless network. Secondly, you have to buy the phone from Best Buy, and finally, the payment of the phone has to be spread out over the course of 24 months.

When you buy the phone from Best Buy’s website, the store gives you an instant $200 discount. Additionally, you get $12.50 carrier bill credit from Verizon every month. When you add up all the numbers, you’re essentially only paying $350 for the phone, which is an absolute steal.

We had a chance to review the Pixel 2 Xl, and we absolutely loved it. It does have some issues with its display. Without getting too technical, anytime you position the phone at a particular angle, you see a blueish tint on the screen. You really notice it when looking at something on a white background. When you look at the phone straight on, the colors and display look incredibly vibrant. Angle the phone down or sideways, and that blue tint plagues the screen.

Thankfully, Google addressed these issues and extended the warranty up to two years, as well as pushing out a software update that fixes the screen tint problems.

Overall, $350 for a flagship Google smartphone is something that shouldn’t be passed up. We highly recommend that you scoop this up if you’re a Verizon customer and interested in the Google flagship phone.
