We've barely recovered from the swell of deals on Cyber Monday, and Google is rolling out sweeping deals in the Google Store on phones, smart home gear and more. These deals kick off immediately and run all the way to December 22, and in some cases December 24, so you have plenty of time to think about your purchases and line up the perfect gift for yourself or someone else. Here's the breakdown:
- Google Pixel 3 for $699 (was $799)
- Google Pixel 3 XL for $749 (was $899)
- Google Home for $99 (was $129)
- Google Home Max for $349 (was $399)
- Google Home Hub for $129 (was $149)
- Chromecast Ultra for $59 (was $69)
Google's also giving $100 discounts across the board on smart home bundles with the Home Hub. If you buy a Home Hub along with any Nest product — like the Outdoor Cam, Thermostat or Hello doorbell — you'll receive $100 off the set.
These are great deals on all of Google's latest gear ... minus Chromebooks.
Unlike the last couple rounds of deals, these holiday savings don't include any additional discounts on the Google Pixelbook, which is back up to its original launch price of $999. And this sure would've been a great opportunity for Google to offer some sort of discount on the the Pixel Slate, which has been criticized for its high price, but it's also staying at its original $599 mark.
The most enticing deals here are obviously on the Pixel 3 and 3 XL, dropping them down to be a bit more competitive with the likes of Samsung, which has been running deep discounts on the Galaxy S9 and S9+. Getting solid savings on all of the latest smart home tech is also great, particularly the Home Hub that's freshly on the market. The discounts are applied automatically when you put the items in your cart, and run through either December 22 or 24, depending on the product.
