Google’s newest phone brings the camera prowess of the Pixel 3 and 3 XL to a more acceptable price. It’s called the Google Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL, and while the new phones may compromise on build materials and internal components a little, it still has what everyone loves about the Pixel range: Supersmart camera tech, Google Assistant, and a range of other clever software features.

You may be wondering where you can get the Google Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL for yourself. Thankfully, there are a range of options. You can buy the phone unlocked and use it on your preferred carrier, or you can get it straight from your carrier, which might mean good deals and payment plans.

Unlocked

The Google Pixel 3a and 3a XL are available unlocked straight from Google, and that’s good news for those that simply want to own their phone outright. The device is relatively affordable too — you will pay $399 for the standard Google Pixel 3a, or a slightly more expensive $479 for the Google Pixel 3a XL. The phones can be bought directly from the Google online store — and if you buy them from Google, you’ll get a $100 gift card to the Google Store. You have to be signed in to your Google account when you make the purchase to get the gift card, which will expire on August 31, 2019.

Google isn’t the only one offering $100 gift cards to customers. For example, if you buy from B&H Photo, you’ll get a $100 gift card to the B&H Photo store, and if you buy from Best Buy, you’ll get a $100 gift card to Best Buy. The offers end on May 18.
