Best Buy and Target sell the Pixel 2 for $300 less

Christmas is usually a good excuse to get a new smartphone, especially a flagship device that’s more expensive. But if you haven’t bought one, you should know there’s a great Pixel 2 deal available right now from various retailers.

Before you get too excited, however, you should know there are plenty of compromises involved.

First of all, the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL phones aren’t the Pixels we wanted. The two handsets were affected by various issues. Google fixed some of them, while others will be fixed in the future. If that’s not a dealbreaker for you, then you’ll probably want to take advantage of this deal as soon as possible. After all, a $300 discount on either model sounds great, especially since you don’t have to trade-in your old smartphone.

But wait, there’s more. The deal is useful only if you’re okay with Verizon being your carrier for the following two years. You don’t have to sign a contract with the mobile operator, but the Pixel 2 deal is only good as long as you’re getting a device payment plan of 24 months. The $300 discount isn’t applied at purchase. Instead, it’s divided over the two years. The only way to take advantage of it is to stick with Verizon.

The Pixel 2 deal is available from Verizon, which launched it in retail stores about a month ago. But you can also get it online from the carrier. Furthermore, starting this week, Best Buy and Target have joined. The best part about it is that Target is willing to sweeten the deal, throwing in a $250 gift card with new lines of service or upgrades.

Check out the deal over at Best Buy and Target.

Target announces its own Green Monday sale and other shopping events

Green Monday may be a sales term coined by eBay many years to describe a brand new sales event, but it’s not just eBay that offers Green Monday deals any more.

Green Monday is “celebrated” on the second Monday of December every year, and while it’s not as big as Black Friday or Cyber Monday, the sales event is still something to consider checking out, especially if your Christmas shopping isn’t done.

This year, Green Monday falls on December 11th, which means we’re just a few days away from it. eBay the other day unveiled its own Green Monday sale, which contains several deals on gadgets and electronics.

But Target also took the wraps off its Green Monday deals. Target calls it its “biggest Green Monday sale ever on Target.com.”

The retailer is ready to let you save $20 for every $100 spent online, which is a great promo. However, you only get to save up to $100, which means you have to spend $500 on Target products to take advantage of it.

The company did not highlight any particular discounts in its press announcement, so feel free to browse its online store as you plan your Green Monday shopping spree.

Additionally, Target offers other similar deals. All weekend long you’ll save $10 for $50 spent on toys in retail stores and online while paying $100 for toys nets you $25 in savings. The offer is good from Sunday, December 10th, through Saturday, December 16th. However, you can’t combine the toys deal with the Green Monday sale.

Finally, this weekend, you’ll be able to save extra cash on various products included in Target’s Weekend Deals, as follows:

  • 30 percent off apparel for men and women
  • 20 percent off shoes and boots
  • 20 percent off holiday lights
  • 20 percent off natural beauty products
  • 15 percent off bed and bath

All in all, Target is hosting three separate sales events, from December 9th through December 16th.
