[Deal] Google takes up to $200 off the Pixel, throws in a Daydream View for free

The price of the Google Pixel is at an all-time low over on the Google Store.

Google finally created a high-end, no-compromise phone in 2016. The Pixel isn’t like anything we’ve seen before from Nexus devices. Rather than cutting corners in select areas, Google went all-in to compete against Samsung, Apple, and others. That, however, came at a big price. Starting at $649, the Pixel didn’t receive a warm welcome from those Nexus loyalists. But it worked out for Google as the Pixel has been a deemed successful mainstream phone. And now there’s a price that everyone should be happy about.

If you’ve been holding out for a lower price on a new Pixel, the wait is finally over. The starting price has been slashed by $125, and the larger model’s price has been reduced by $200. Both are also coming with a free virtual reality headset.

Right now you can get the Pixel for $524 and the Pixel XL for $569. Need additional internal storage? You can go from 32GB to 128GB for $100 rather than $120. And, yes, the Pixel in Really Blue is still available after making its return in July.

When you have your Pixel in the cart, swing over to the virtual reality section on the Google Store. Every purchase of a Pixel makes you eligible for a free Daydream View. Google’s virtual reality headset normally costs $79. So you can add that to your savings as well.

For those who need a case, the Google Store has one more offer. The Google Earth Live Case, Google Trends Live Case, Pixel Clear Case, and Pixel Color Case have all had their prices cut in half.

Google’s Pixel remains one of the very best phones on the market today even though it was announced almost an entire year ago. Keep in mind, too, that its successor will likely be announced in September. The upcoming Pixel 2 is why the current Pixel is getting a price cut. Google wants to clear out existing inventory as it makes room for the new devices and pushes them instead.

    These should have been starting prices for pixels. Original prices were ridiculous. It’s a good phone, but grossly overpriced.
