The Google Pixel 3a and 3a XL released May 7. Maybe you've heard of them? If you haven't, we have everything you need to know right here! Of course, if you have then you're probably considering an upgrade. We think these are great phones and worthy of that consideration. Of course, like most smartphones these days they come with a price tag in the hundreds, despite purposefully being on the more budget end when it comes to phones this advanced. Because of that, a good deal or two never hurt anyone, and Verizon has a smart one going on right now for both the Pixel 3a and the Pixel 3a XL.

Whether you're a new or current Verizon customer, you can save some money when you switch to the Pixel 3a or 3a XL. New customers can get $100 off the price of either phone, and existing customers can get $50 off the total. You do still have to commit yourself to a 24-month plan, and the money you'll be saving will be dispersed over the course of those 24 months.

What that means, though, is you won't be paying as much for your phone every month. The Pixel 3a is a $400 phone that would normally add $16.66 to your bill. With this deal, it will only cost $12.50 a month. The Pixel 3a XL is reduced to $15.83 a month from $19.99. You can get either phone in "Just Black" or "Purple-ish."

You can read more about the Pixel 3a XL and how it performs in our in-depth review. Spoilers: We like it. The 3a XL gets 4 out of 5 stars and our Recommended badge. The review 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."

J.D. Levite has been in the deals game since 2012. He has posted daily deals at Gizmodo, The Wirecutter, The Sweethome, and now for Thrifter. He was there for the first Prime Day and has braved the full force of Black Friday. If you cut him, he bleeds savings. But don't try it for real. That's a metaphor.
  • Sounds great, but don't expect it to ship quickly. I chose two day shipping when I ordered on Wednesday night, and I haven't even gotten a tracking number yet.
  • That's assuming it's an upgrade from your current device 😉
