As you may know, Google only made the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL official yesterday. Yet here we are 24 hours later bringing you the first ever deal on the company’s new smartphone duo. Best Buy already lets you save up to $100 when you purchase a Pixel 2, but there are some noteworthy caveats.
First off, only the Pixel 2 is $100 off. The Pixel 2 XL is discounted too, but just by a mere $25. Next up, you need to know that these are Verizon Pixels we’re talking about, and to take advantage of the price reduction you’re going to have to pay for them using the carrier’s installment plan.

If you’re okay with all of that, then your monthly installments for the Pixel 2 will be $22.91 (for the 64GB version) or $27.08 (for the 128GB model). Over the course of two years, you’ll pay a grand total of $549.84 or $649.92, respectively – in each case, a few cents over $100 less than normal.
If you’re interested in the Pixel 2 XL, the installments will be $34.36 per month (64GB) or $38.53 per month (128GB). In total that means either $824.64 or $924.72, depending on which model you pick. Just a hair over $25 in savings, as mentioned.
You still get the free Google Home Mini if you go this route. The Pixel 2 should ship by October 19, while the Pixel 2 XL doesn’t even have a release date to speak of yet. So be prepared to play the waiting game.
