With today’s launch of the Pixel 6a, the Pixel Buds A-Series US Google Store pre-order bonus and fast-track redemption period are over, but you can now get the mid-ranger for $399 after a $50 credit.
Update 8/6: The American Google Store will end its $50 Credit Promotion with a $449 Pixel 6a buy on Sunday, August 7 at 11:59 p.m. PT.
It would be safe to assume that Amazon will do the samewhich changed the checkout process to selecting “Pixel 6a Sage/Charcoal/Chalk + FREE $50 Amazon Gift Card” in the “Style” selector (do not choose “Pixel 6a Only” or “Pixel 6a + Case”).
Update 7/29: A similar offer is available from Amazon in the United States. Scroll down to “Special offers and product promotions” on the Pixel 6a product listing and click “Add both to cart”.
Offer expires at 11:59 p.m. PT on August 7, 2022.
Original 7/28: When purchasing the $449 unlocked or Google Fi model from the US Google Store, you will get $50 store credit. This effectively discounts the Pixel 6a to $399 and the promotion can be easily used to purchase a pure and simple accessory.
Get $50 Google Store credit when you buy a Pixel 6a (unlocked or with Google Fi).
For example, the official case is $29while Bellroy’s leather offering is $49. The Google Store has four more cases under $50, while two screen protectors (OtterBox and Zagg) are available. In terms of value, it’s obviously less than $99 headphones, but not everyone necessarily wanted them and would have preferred the credit.
This offer starts today and ends August 7, 2022 at 11:59 PM PT. So far we’ve only seen it in the US, and Google says “your credit will be emailed to you within a maximum of 3 weeks” and is valid for the year next. Just add the Pixel 6a to your cart and the offer will automatically apply. Full promotion terms are available here.
