T-Mobile has never officially sold Google’s Pixel phones, but T-Mo has encouraged its customers to bring their Pixels onto its network in the past with special offers. T-Mobile’s #BYOPixel offer for the Pixel 2 is no longer being offered, but Google is now running a deal of its own.
The Google Store is now offering $200 back when you buy a Pixel 2 XL with Google Store Financing. With this financing, you’ll pay for the Pixel 2 XL over 24 monthly installments. The $200 statement credit will appear on your account within two billing periods.
The Pixel 2 XL is priced at $849 for the 64GB model and $949 for the 128GB version. Google is currently selling the device in Just Black and Black & White color options.
Also of note is that the Pixel 2 XL is sold unlocked. It includes support for LTE bands 1/2/3/4/5/7/8/12/13/17/20/25/26/28/29/30/32/66 and it’s been confirmed to support T-Mobile LTE Advanced technologies like 4×4 MIMO, 3x carrier aggregation, and 256 QAM.
The fact that you can’t buy it from T-Mobile may turn some people off of the Pixel 2 XL, but if you don’t mind that, then the Pixel 2 XL is worth considering if you’re in the market for a new Android phone. Not only does it have a high-end spec list, but becaue it’s a Pixel phone from Google, you’ll get software updates much faster than most other Android users. Google has said that the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL are guaranteed to get Android version updates and security updates through October 2020.
In addition to this $200 back offer, Google is giving an 18W USB-C power adapter to anyone who buys a Pixel 2 or Pixel 2 XL. Simply add both a Pixel phone and the power adapter to your cart and the cost of the power adapter will be deducted from your total.
Both of these offers run through March 31.
