Whether you’re looking for a new smartphone or other smart gadgets, you’ll find some of the year’s hottest Google releases at discounted prices. Search online to compare Black Friday deals on Google products.
Here’s what kinds of discounts were available in 2019 and what you can expect for 2020.
$200 Off the Google Pixel 4
The Google Pixel 4, which was released last fall, saw great Black Friday discounts already. Retailers offered $200 off both the 64GB and the 128GB Pixel 4 models.
Amazon, Best Buy, and Google all knocked the price of the Google Pixel 4 down to $599 (64GB) or $699 (128GB) for 2019. The Pixel 4 XL was also discounted by $200, giving you savings on this larger Google smartphone too. Shoppers were able to get the Pixel 4 XL for $699 (64GB) or $799 (128GB).
This year, you’ll likely see a similar deal on the Google Pixel 5, Google’s newest smartphone. Expect savings to be around $200 again, as the newest smartphones don’t tend to see the biggest discounts on Black Friday.
$400 Off the Google Pixel 4
Last year, if you didn’t mind opting for an older smartphone model, you could double your savings on the Google Pixel 4.
Best Buy knocked an impressive $400 off the Pixel 4 – the final price was $399 for the Pixel 4 and just $499 for the Pixel 4 XL. However, this Google Pixel deal required activating your new smartphone at Best Buy with an approved carrier – Verizon, AT&T, or Sprint.
You’ll likely see a very similar discount on the Google Pixel 5 this year from Best Buy, with activation required.
Up to $600 Off the Google Pixel Slate
During last year’s Black Friday event, there were huge savings available on Google tables. Shoppers were able to get a brand new Google Pixel Slate tablet for as much as $600 off. That’s a nearly 50 percent discount on the original price of some Pixel Slate models.
Here’s how the deals broke down:
- The Google Store: $350 off the entry level Pixel Slate with a free Pixelbook Pen and Pixel Slate Keyboard.
- Best Buy: $350 off the entry level Pixel Slate with a free Pixelbook Pen and Pixel Slate Keyboard. $650 off the upgraded Pixel Slate with a Pixel Slate Keyboard.
- Amazon: $350 off the entry level Pixel Slate with a Pixel Slate Keyboard. $650 off the upgraded Pixel Slate with a Pixel Slate Keyboard.
The entry-level Google Pixel Slate operates with Google’s Chrome OS, an 8th Gen Intel Core m3 processor, 8GB of RAM, and 64GB of storage. The upgraded model comes with an Intel Core i5 CPU, 8GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage.
This year, you may see similar deals. With a newly upgraded Pixel Slate model available and three tablet options to choose from, you’ll likely see discounts on every tablet – but they will vary. Make sure to check the specs before buying on Black Friday to make sure you’re getting the most bang for your buck with the Pixel Slate models that are on sale.
$100 Off the Pixel 3A and Pixel 3A XL
The Google Pixel 3A was already an affordable smartphone before Black Friday 2019. But its price dropped even farther to make it a serious bargain. As “last year’s model” during the 2019 Black Friday event, the Pixel 3A saw some really solid discounts.
A number of retailers – including Best Buy, the Google Store, Amazon, and B&H Photo – knocked $100 off the price of both the Google Pixel 3A and Google Pixel 3A XL. That brought the price down to just $299 for the Pixel 3A and $379 for the Pixel 3A XL.
Since the Google Pixel 5 is now the newest phone added to Google’s lineup, you’ll likely see a similar deal offered on the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL. As the previous year’s smartphone for 2020, these smartphones will likely become very, very affordably priced.
Up to $50 Off Google Smart Home Products
Google smart home gadgets like the Nest Hub, Nest Wifi Router, and Nest Mini speakers are very popular on Black Friday. These gadgets normally don’t see steep discounts throughout the year, so Black Friday is typically their biggest discount.
Last year, discounts of up to $50 off were available on most of Google’s smart home products. For example, here’s a sample of what was offered:
- $20 off the Google Nest Wifi router.
- $40 off the Google Nest Wifi router and point bundle.
- $50 off the Nest Hub smart display.
- $30 off the Nest Hub Max.
- $20 off the Google Nest Mini smart speaker.
You can expect deals around these same amounts for 2020’s Black Friday event. Google smart home gadgets don’t often see deep discounts unless a newer device or model has been released. Keep an eye out for different discounts at different retailers online and compare your options to make sure you’re paying the lowest price available.
