Deal: Google summer sale brings savings on Pixel 2 XL, Home Mini, and more

By | 9th July 2018

It’s summer sale time once again over on the Google Store, with discounts on a wide range of phones, speakers, and more all made by the big G. The offers are available to U.S. consumers until July 17 on selected devices while stocks last.

First up is Google’s flagship phones. Despite the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL hype train having long left the station at this point, the search giant’s second-generation Pixel phones are still some of the best Android phones available, so it’s hard to grumble at the flat $100 discount currently being offered on the larger Pixel 2 XL.

That saving brings the base model Pixel 2 XL with 64GB storage down to $749, while the 128GB variant is now $849. This is far from the cheapest we’ve seen either device, but it’s a solid offer if you’re looking to buy an unlocked version.

Google’s smart speaker range also enjoys a price cut, with the Home Mini dropping to $34 ($15 off). Alternatively, you can pick up the regular Home for $99 ($30 off) or two for $158 ($100 off). The more powerful Home Max, meanwhile, is on a two for $648 deal which knocks off around $150 overall.
