Target one-ups Best Buy with $150 gift cards for Pixel 3 and 3 XL pre-orders : If your mind is set on one of the two new “Made by Google” smartphones running stock Android Pie out the box, but you’re having trouble deciding where to pre-order the Pixel 3 or 3 XL from, a couple of introductory deals might help you make up your mind.
Thus, you need to settle for “Just Black” or “Not Pink” variants, starting at $800 and $900 outright respectively. Quantities are obviously limited, and not all Target stores seem to participate in this promotion. Only “select” locations with Target Tech.
The extra-large “pure Google” phone comes with a sharper, “notchy” screen, but otherwise, the differences between the two models are minimal. The Pixel 3 XL obviously packs a larger battery as well, sharing a single rear-facing camera and dual selfie shooters with its little brother.
Overall, these continue to feel somewhat overpriced, but a $150 coupon you can use for future Target shopping should make the handsets’ price tags slightly easier to swallow. Target one-ups Best Buy with $150 gift cards for Pixel 3 and 3 XL pre-orders.
