The Google Pixel 3a can be yours for just $250, provided that you activate the device on the same day.

The Google Pixel 3a Best Buy listing.

The Google Pixel 3a is definitely in the running for the best mid-range phone of 2019, and it can now be yours at a massive $150 discount.

Google’s first budget Pixel phone is now on sale via Best Buy (h/t: 9to5Google) for just $249.99, as opposed to its $399.99 original price tag. The only catch with this Pixel 3a deal is that you need to activate the device on the day of purchase. Otherwise, you’re paying a slightly higher but still great $300 for the phone.

Either way, you’re getting a discounted 64GB Pixel 3a in Just Black, Purple-ish, or Clearly White. The budget Pixel stands out from other budget phones by offering the same flagship camera experience as the Pixel 3. That means an identical 12MP single rear camera with support for HDR+, Night Sight, and astrophotography modes.

Google’s mid-range device also brings a Snapdragon 670 chipset, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of fixed storage, Active Edge squeezing, and a headphone port. The latter isn’t available on Google’s recent flagships, making the Pixel 3a stand out even more.

You do miss out on water resistance and wireless charging, but these omissions are to be expected at a $400 and under price point. You can check out the Best Buy Pixel 3a deal via the button below.
