Four months since it’s release the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL still have the best smartphone camera available. Now with the next generation of phones about to hit the market there are likely going to be some decent deals on them in the coming weeks.
Starting off today Telstra (and JB Hi-Fi because they are a re-seller for Telstra) are offering a deal on the Pixel 2 XL. For a limited time you can get a Pixel 2 XL for $59 per month on a plan that includes 15GB of data per month and a free Google Home Mini.
Sounds too good to be true doesn’t it? Unfortunately it is. There is some fine print: you will have to sign up to a new 24 month contract and is only available for users who are porting in to Telstra onto the new contract. If you are already a Telstra customer you could always try the trick of porting out to a $2 Vodafone sim and porting back in an hour or so later — that should work.
If you head over to the Telstra website the deal is not available but instore, at both Telstra and JB Hi-Fi, and the online chat are both offering the deal if you don’t mind signing up for two years.
Reading the Ozbargain website also shows that a lot of people will be getting this deal and then selling the phone on one of the various online markets so hopefully this means there will be some affordable Google Pixel 2 XL smartphones showing up soon. I am in the market for one but will not be signing up to a two year contract.
Anyone looking to grab a Pixel 2 XL or are you waiting for one of the new flagships to launch? Which one do you like the look of?
