Fall is upon us, which means deals on great tech, and Google is launching new hardware. That's right, Google's Pixel 8 Launch event is happening on October 4, and Amazon's Prime Big Deal Days is taking place on October 10 - 11. It's a perfect storm of events that could lead to some of the best deals we've seen on Google's Pixel 7 lineup in a long while. Plus, other products like the Pixel Watch may be getting a refresh, too, and when new tech goes on sale, older tech usually sees some significant price cuts.
If you want to beat the holiday shopping rush and get a deal early, here are a few great deals before Prime Big Deal Days even starts.
Fantastic early Prime Big Deal Days deals
Google Pixel Buds A-Series
If you're in the market for comfortable and lightweight midrange earbuds with decent audio quality, look no further than the Pixel Buds A-Series from Google! Although they lack advanced features such as ANC or multipoint connectivity, their vented design is engineered to alleviate in-ear pressure and help you stay alert of your surroundings. And with a budget-friendly price of $80 on Amazon, you won't find a better value anywhere else.
Save $45 on the Google Pixel 7 with 256GB of storage and get almost all the same goodies as the Pro model while you're at it. Sure, the camera array is slightly worse off without the telephoto lens, but everything else is top-notch. At this price, that's a bargain any way you cut it.
We've waited for Google to make a watch for over a decade, but luckily, we didn't have to wait that long for it to go on sale. Save over $40 and at pick up a Google Pixel Watch for only $309 and beat the rush on Amazon's Big Deal Days.
Pixel 6 is a good option for those who can't afford the latest Pixel 7 but want a bigger phone than Pixel 6a. It has an impressive 90Hz screen and wireless charging. Plus, you can save just shy of $200 on the model with 256GB of internal storage at Amazon right now.
Google Pixel 8 launch could mean great phone deals
Google's Pixel phones are some of the best Android phones you can get your hands on, and with the launch of the new Pixel 8 lineup likely to replace the Google 7 models, we could see some amazing deals when Amazon's big sales event starts.
We saw the Pixel 7 Pro go down about $250 dollar during Amazon's Prime Day sale earlier this year, so if you see it reach that price or lower during Amazon's October event, then you know you've picked it up on an incredible deal. The Pixel 7 also saw a discount of just $100 during the sale period, which is significant but not super large, so I'm hopeful Amazon beats that price this time around. And, even though the Pixel 7a was fresh after launching during Prime Day, we still saw the device marked done $50 at Amazon .
While the stock has dwindled in the past few months, don't overlook the Pixel 6a if it is available on a great deal. It's still our favorite budget Android phone, and if it goes down to a sale price of only $249 — like it did earlier this year — it could be the spotlight stealer again this time.
Be on Pixel Watch
We know that the Pixel Watch 2 is likely to be announced on October 4, the same time as the Pixel 8 lineup, and that could mean that the first Pixel Watch could see deep discounts for Amazon's fall sales event. One of our biggest criticisms of the Pixel Watch was its very premium price point, considering its features. so when you see it go on sale for $100 — as it did during Prime Day — those criticisms disappear and leave you with an ambitious and exciting smartwatch.
Listen up for great deals on Pixel earbuds
Google Pixel Buds A-Series
Google Pixel Buds Pro
During Prime Day earlier this year, the Google Pixel Buds Pro saw some heavy discounts — going as low as $130 for a little bit. It became one of the top-selling items in June, and there's no reason the earbuds couldn't do the same at Amazon's October event in just a few weeks. Google will be fresh off the release of the highly-anticipated Google Pixel 8 series, so what better time for Google to discount its top-tier pair of wireless earbuds?
Smart home deals with Google Nest
Google Nest Doorbell Battery
Google Nest Audio$68 $100 Save $32
Google Nest Wifi Pro$264 $300 Save $36
If you're looking to set up a smart home network, Google Home is a great option. This platform makes it easy to connect smart devices such as cameras and TVs, and you can manage everything right from your smartphone using a simple app and Google Assistant. Last time around, Google Nest products made up a good portion of the best smart home deals on Amazon, So it wouldn't be out of the question to look for popular products like the Nest Smart thermostat and Nest Doorbell to receive a price reductions during the October event.
Amazon Prime has long since evolved from the days when it merely offered free two-day shipping and a burgeoning library of original shows. Prime now includes a music service, one of the most robust TV show and movie streaming services on the market, unique deals for its members — like free Twitch subscriptions and exclusive Whole Foods discounts — plus access to exclusive deals, especially on Amazon's unofficial-official holidays, like the upcoming Prime Big Deal Days.
