$300 Off Verizon Pixel 3 or Pixel 3 XL at Best Buy - Not Bill Credit

$500.00

68,243 Views
If you missed the 1 day $400 flash sale during BF, this is the best offer right now for the Verizon Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL. For those who don't know, Best Buy gives instant discount. The rest is device payment plan. You can pay off 1 week after activation. This is not bill credit.

https://www.bestbuy.com/site/cond...2990999627

The way these Best Buy cellphone deals work is as the following:
1. You need to be upgrading a line or starting a new line. If you are upgrading a line that still has remaining device payment, you need to pay it off first. I had to deal with this since I recently upgraded to Note 9 at Best Buy. I had a LG V20 on the line on 2 year monthly installments. I had 2 more installments left. When you pay off the phone, you lose remaining installments. I was able to call Verizon and get it the installments credit back, but it's a YMMV.
2. You will get $300 off instantly, and the remaining will be paid to Verizon on monthly device payment. You can usually pay off the remaining balance in 1 week.
3. You pay tax on MSRP.
4. If you return the phone, you have to pay restocking fee regardless if you opened the phone.

Plus, get another Pixel 3 on us.
No trade-in required.
Add another Pixel 3 or Pixel 3 XL with monthly device payments to your cart, get Pixel 3 64GB model on us (or $800 off any other Pixel 3 model).
You'll need to add this phone as a new smartphone line on your account.

Even if Verizon let you do it, you have to activate a new line and get it as device credit for 24 months. You will be tied to Verizon for 2 years.
This is the same deal Costco has on their site... are you referring to that?

No you'd pay tax on $750 from the google store and tax on $900 with this bestbuy deal. Yes I know it is only $10-15 but it narrows the gap a bit.
It is state specific.l to charge tax on the original price of a phone discount or something.
Unless I am missing something.
Did a check out with both, same taxes quoted.
Verizon as well.

"stand corrected, maybe I saw something that wasn't really there, Google Store (didn't check Google Fi) shows lower tax only apply to carrier purchases.

VERIZON ONLY. Best Buy only sells phones primarily for Verizon. For Pixel 2 or 3 types only Verizon as well . I was able to get in on this on BF and absolutely worked. I had to pay off the remainder of the leftover from my original 2016 Pixel XL before starting the online process which was no comparison to receiving the $400 off the top and leaving the remaining ona payment plan until ready to pay that off early if want to that was not a choice when I purchased the Original Pixel XL. At the time of buying the Pixel 3 XL Best Buy had the newest Pixel Stands at 50% off fo $39.99 per stand so was able to buy 2 Pixel (specific) Wireless Stands for 2 different rooms that work awesome.

Microphone on pixel 3 and 3 xl is really really terrible... I'd stay away.

Great for taking pics tho... but microphone SUCKS. People can barely hear you for shit.
I have been facing same issue with my two Pixel 3's we bought two weeks back, called Google support and Google Fi several times and they sent me a replacement which has the same issues
People can't hear me and also on both the phones I am hearing a static noise while talking directly on the phone

I am returning and thinking go with either OnePlus 6T other iPhone XS

Yes, it's well documented in video recording and phone conversation. Pixel 3 microphone sucks. This is a great phone that can't make phone calls LMAO...

Go with Oneplus 6T! :-D

XS is fine but freaking over priced... I'd go with XR $750, it's a steeper discount with bigger screen. but then again, I hate Apple OS.

XS (2017) has "bad" camera... I'd go with XR $750 with much improved camera and beastly updated processor if I go with Apple... but then again, I hate Apple OS.
Just switched from iPhone to Pixel 3 , been using iPhone's from last 10 years Smilie and I like the pixel 3 but it's useless if we can't make calls

Thanks for the advice on the OnePlus 6t
