Best Google Pixel 3a and 3a XL Deals for August 2019

The Pixel 3a just released earlier this year, barely even cooled off from the factory. Yet, here we are, looking at some awesome deals for it. In the competitive world of Android, we really shouldn't be too surprised. If you need to know more about Google's newest Pixel phone, read our larger review here. We gave it a Recommended badge and 4 out of 5 stars. Our reviewer said, "These phones have maintained most of what makes the Pixel 3 series among the most enjoyable phones to use, and in my week-long testing, I've noticed none of the performance hiccups that sullied some of that luster."

Best Best Buy Deal From $299 with activation

Best Buy itself doesn't have a big discount on offer, but it's offering cuts from retail price when you buy the Pixel 3a or 3a XL and activate service with a carrier at the same time. You can get the Pixel 3a for as little as $299, and 3a XL for $379, when activating on Sprint. And the other carriers have $50 discounts across the board.

Best B&H Deal $399 + $60 Mint Mobile prepaid kit

B&H has had a variety of gift card and promo deals for the Pixel 3a and 3a XL. Right now you can buy either version, the 3a (opens in new tab) or the 3a XL (opens in new tab), and get a 3-month Mint Mobile prepaid SIM kit, which is normally worth about $60. This is a unique deal to B&H and one of the better options we've seen B&H offer, and it's definitely better than anywhere else with no deal at all. Plus, if you use B&H's new Payboo credit card, you can actually get back any charged sales tax. That's a lot of ways to save on a great new phone.

Best Google Store Deal $149 with iPhone trade-in

The Google Store doesn't have any direct way to save, but it does have the best trade-in program we've seen. You can get the Pixel 3a down to $149 by trading in an eligible iPhone and as much as $400 with other phones. You'll get a discount based on the model and condition of the iPhone. The trade-in program is super easy to use, too. Google walks you right through it, and you can use it with either the Pixel 3a or the 3a XL.

All Major Carrier Deals

How to get the Best Google Pixel 3a Deals

The Pixel 3a honeymoon is over. All the carriers and retailers offering $100+ off the phone to get you to buy from them... that's done. Very few places still have that deal. And until a major holiday or something similar, we don't expect to see much in the way of new deals.

If $100 off isn't enough for you and you want some bigger deals, the best advise we can give you is... wait. Give it some time. There are so many new Android phones out there right now. Surely the Pixel 3a and 3a XL will have to come up with some new and creative discounts to stay relevant. That's one of the great things about Android, you know? With all these options, everyone wants to get your attention with crazy deals. We'll be sure to post them here as we find them.
