The Google Pixel and Pixel XL are now available for preorder at Verizon, and the Big Red has a treat for fans of the smartphones, particularly for those who are planning to trade in their older phones to get them.
With the carrier's promo, subscribers stand to save up to $300, but of course, they have to meet several requirements to get in on the action.
The Requirements: Eligible Smartphones For The Trade-In
To start things off, the Pixel and Pixel XL must be purchased with a plan — more on the specifics in a bit.
Verizon is also only going to accept older phones that are still in good working condition. In other words, devices that have been roughed up too much are a no-go.
Customers will also have to trade in a pretty recent model, and the list of eligible smartphones include the Samsung Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 edge, Galaxy S6 edge+, Galaxy Note 5, LG G4, LG V10, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and the HTC One M9.
As for the credit from the trade-in, it'll be applied over the span of more than 24 months, starting with the second or third cycles. Needless to say, the lines must be active for at least two years to get the complete amount.
The Pricing: How Much The Pixel And Pixel XL Plans Cost
For the record, Verizon consumers will soon be able to grab the 32 GB Pixel at $27.08 a month for two years or the 128 GB variant at $31.24 a month for the same time frame that has a $649.99 or $749.99 retail price respectively.
Meanwhile, the $769.99 Pixel XL with 32 GB of default storage will be available at $32.08 a month for two years, and the $869.99 model with 128 GB of space at $36.24 for the same duration.
As for the release date, the Big Red is expected to start shipping out the two smartphones on Oct. 20, and they're strutting down the mobile scene in three flavors: Really Blue, Very Silver and Quite Black.
The Bottom Line
To sum things up, the Google-branded smartphones are up for preorder at Verizon, and subscribers can save up to $300 when they purchase either the Pixel or Pixel XL via the trade-in program — that is, if they can satisfy the requirements.
