The newest Pixel phones, the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL, finally released a couple days ago. If you haven't already run out to buy one, but you are interested in upgrading to Google's latest and greatest, there are a few deals you should know about! These deals won't last much longer, either, so you should act while you can.

Let's start with Sprint. At Sprint you can buy the Google Pixel 4 64GB smartphone at its regular price and get a second identical phone for free. If you go with the Pixel 4 XL, you can get a second Pixel 4 XL for free, too. For both secondary phones, the deal is applied as a monthly promo credit over the span of an 18-month lease. Eligibility requires signing up on two new lines of service or one new line and an upgrade.

At Verizon, you can also buy one Pixel 4 and get a second one free. The second phone must be of equal or lesser value, but you will get an $800 promo credit applied over 24 months. That means you can upgrade the capacity or go with the Pixel 4 XL if you want. You'll just max out at $800 in savings.

If you don't need a second phone but you want one Pixel 4, you can trade in your old phone and get up to $450 off at Verizon. Any deal with Verizon that includes switching over to Verizon also gets you a $200 prepaid Mastercard, so that's just some extra incentive there.

Verizon's deal includes $800 off a second Pixel 4 when you buy one. You don't have to settle for the 64GB version if you don't want to, but you'll only save $800 even if you up the capacity. The deal is a promo credit applied over 24 months.

The Pixel 4 64GB phone costs $33.30 a month. You get $33.30 applied to your bill every month to cover the cost of the second phone. If you go for the Pixel 4 XL deal at Sprint, you'll get $38.71 applied as a credit to cover the cost of the second phone.

Curious about Verizon's trade-in plan instead of the Buy One, Get One deals? Well, it's simple. Buy the Pixel 4 and then trade in an eligible phone within 30 days after check out. You'll get $450 back in the form of a credit applied over 24 months to your bill. There are dozens of eligible phones for this deal. Check out the website for the full list, but rest assured it includes Android and iOS smartphones going back several generations.

After you've actived your new Pixel 4 or Pixel 4 XL at Verizon and signed up on a new line with an Unlimited plan, visit the Verizon Promotion Center. Use the code FALLSWITCH and then fill out the rest of the info. You'll get a $200 prepaid Mastercard sent to you within eight weeks.

Read our hands-on preview of these amazing new phones to see what they have to offer. Although we're eager to fully test them out and see just how well they live up to the hype, Andrew Martonik said "These are beautiful phones with good enough specs, clean and fast software, some great Google-exclusive features, impressive camera capabilities and all-new standouts like advanced face unlock and Motion Sense gestures."

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.

  • From what I'm reading from other sites, this phone will have plenty deals in 2 months after the newness is over.
  • That's typical of most phones. And if u wait six months the deals get stronger. the question is do want the new p4 or happy to sit back. For me the $450 trade in on my og pixel XL was great offer. And then I traded my pixel xl2 for a second xl4. It works out to a buy one get free deal. And my phone bill dropped $25 for upgrading 2 devices. So it's a win all all around.
  • I'll wait. I have a Pixel 1 and the Android 10 update has done a lot. Had some battery issues but figured out it was a rogue app. I'll see what the user experience is like, and then see if any deals materialize for Black Friday or Christmas.
  • I use the "regular" size phone and I don't want to carry a battery pack with me, so I'll be passing on the P4....
  • Don't believe the hype. No matter how many echo it. I have a P4 coming from a P3, Battey life is fine. I've been with Google since the Nexus 4, ppl complained about that battery too. Both more than enough for an EE/ PowerUser...and there will be updates!! XD
