Update (11/23): It appears Verizon has updated its promotion page, noting that this Black Friday deal is only applicable to the Pixel, not the Pixel XL. As of this time, we're not sure if Verizon will be discounting the Pixel XL for Black Friday or not, but we'll be sure to update this post as we learn more.

Original post (11/22): If you don’t mind being locked into a two-year payment plan, Verizon has a really, really good deal on the Google Pixel and Pixel XL.

From this Thursday, November 24 through Friday, November 25, Verizon is selling the 32GB Google Pixel and Pixel XL for an incredibly low $10 per month, while the 128GB Pixel and Pixel XL are going for just $15 per month. That means, essentially, both 32GB models will cost you only $240 in all, and the 128GB versions will cost only $360. As you may recall, the 32GB Pixel and Pixel XL normally start at a hefty $649 and $769, respectively, making this one of the best Pixel deals we’ve seen thus far.

This is one of the best Pixel deals we've seen thus far
Before we get too excited, there’s a hefty dose of fine print we should talk about first.

To get the deal, you’ll need to purchase your Pixel or Pixel XL on a standard device payment plan. After roughly 2-3 months, Verizon will start applying monthly bill credits to your account to make up for the discount. So, if you were to buy the 32GB Pixel on a payment plan, for instance, you’d get a total of $409 ($649 full retail price – $240) spread out over 24 months. In order to get the full discount, that line will need to be active for the full 24 months.

So no, you’re not getting these phones for $10 or $15 per month the simple way. But if you can get past the few caveats listed above, you’ll end up saving yourself quite a bit of money in the long run.

This deal will be available both online and in-store, so you can even buy your new Google phone from the comfort of your home.

If the Pixel phones aren’t for you, Verizon is also letting new customers take $200 off any Android smartphone priced $400 or higher when they switch to Verizon or add a line from November 24-27. Alternatively, current customers can save $100 on any Android phone priced $400 or higher. In both cases, you’ll need to activate your new phone on a payment plan to get the discount.

Oh, and one other thing – Verizon, just like many other retailers, is selling the Google Home for just $99, which is a steal.
