The official Google Store for hardware began their Black Friday sales early this year, starting on November 16th, 3018. That’s a week and a day before the official Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving here in the United States, Thursday, November 22nd, 2018. Google’s list of products with sales runs from tomorrow right on through the week after Black Friday on into Cyber Monday, too – and there’s a wide variety of products on which to gaze.
If you’re the sort of person that only shops on Amazon, first of all god help you, you’ve given your life to robot overlords, and also, these products will probably appear on sale there too. As ChromeUnboxed reminds us We don’t yet know the sale status of these products from Google on Amazon, but that’s generally a place where the sales extend – we’ll see!
November 16 – 21
The first batch starts on November 16th and ends on the 21st – that’s for the Google Pixel 3, only. Google Pixel 3 and 3 XL are buy one, get a second one for “up to” 50% off. There’s also a free phone case with the purchase of a Google Pixel 2 XL on the Google Store in “Offers” – but that doesn’t seem to be limited to Black Friday week.
If you’re on the fence about a Google Pixel 3 smartphone, head over to our Google Pixel 3 XL Review to see what you’re missing. Or what you could do without?
