Google's Newest Nexus Phones Return to Record Low Prices (With Freebies!)
A handful of retailers have put the newest Nexus smartphones on sale again, so you're in luck if you missed out on picking one up during the discount period last month. Actually, you might be better off since some retailers are giving away freebies with some models, too.
You'll be able to save $50 on any of unlocked Nexus 6P (32, 64, or 128 GB) or Nexus 5X (16 or 32 GB) models starting today, April 15th, and running through May 6th. Best Buy, Newegg, Amazon, and the Google Store are participating in the sale, but you're probably best off ordering through Best Buy or Newegg since they're also throwing in gift cards to sweeten the deal.
Your dollar will go the furthest by ordering from Best Buy if you're in the market for a Nexus 6P. In addition to the $50 off the price of the phone, you'll also be rewarded with a $50 Best Buy gift card for ordering any of the models. Both Nexus 5X models are also on sale for $50 off, but there is no gift card included.
Newegg is offering a similar deal to Best Buy's, but, depending on the color you choose, some models of the Nexus 6P come with a $50 gift certificate, while others also have a free case.
For instance, the Matte Gold 32 GB and Matte Gold 64 GB Nexus 6Ps comes with a $50 gift certificate and a free case. Buy the same thing in Graphite or Aluminum though, and all you'll get is a $50 gift card. You might as well just buy the Matte Gold model and use the free case to cover the back if you don't like the cover, considering the front of the phone is all black.
None of the Nexus 5X phonescome with any additional giveaways, but they are still $50 off.
You won't get any extra goodies from Amazon, but both the Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X are eligible for two-day shipping if you're an Amazon Prime member.
Like Amazon, Google isn't handing out any free extras in addition to the price cut, but you will get free shipping for either of the devices. Also, don't worry that both phones are still listed at full price in the store—the discount isn't applied until you head to checkout.
- Google Store: $50 off Nexus 6P (starting at $449.00)
- Google Store: $50 off Nexus 5X (starting at $299.00)
The Nexus 6P is one of the best phones in Google's lineup, and the 5X is a thrifty alternative, so if you're in line to get a new phone, these deals are definitely ones to think about.
