Updated 11:58AM ET, June 14th: B&H Photo’s deal is back, and it includes more phones this time around. The Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL in “not pink” with 64GB of storage are $300 off, bringing prices down to $499 and $599, respectively.
B&H Photo is offering a great deal on the Google Pixel 3 and 3 XL with 64GB of storage in the “not pink” color variant. Each are $300 off of their original prices, and the Pixel 3 starts at $499, while the Pixel 3 XL is $100 more at $599.
The Pixel 3 is currently in stock, and will ship following checkout. However, B&H Photo has “more on the way” for the Pixel 3 XL. Its site says to expect availability in seven to ten days.
This is the best price that we’ve seen for the unlocked phone, unless you’re a Google Fi subscriber and you took advantage of the recent sale where it was an impressively cheap $399. One big perk of this deal is that buying the phone through B&H Photo doesn’t require activation with a carrier, so it can work with any GSM or CDMA carrier in the US.
The Pixel 3 and 3 XL come in three colors, but this sale is, oddly, limited to the “not pink” model. If you don’t like that shade, it might be a problem for you, but consider it anyway: the orange power button stands out in a nice way if you plan to use the Pixel 3 XL sans case. And if you do plan to use a case, there’s little point in getting caught up on the phone’s color.
If photography is your main concern, this is not the cheapest way to get Pixel-quality photos, even at that sale price. The Pixel 3A XL costs $479, and while it can’t match the 3 XL’s speed or its notched display’s pixel density, it can take photos of a similar quality, and it is compatible with as many carriers.
These deals are set to last until Father’s Day, which is Sunday, June 16th in the US. We’ll update this post if it expires before then.
