Black Friday may have come and gone, but Google’s Black Friday deals are still trucking in. Google reintroduced several deals this week, which were the first and/or best discounts we’ve seen for many of Google’s new products. The highlight of the bunch is definitely the Pixel 6a, but you get good deals on the Pixel 7, Pixel Watch, Chromecasts, and Google smart speakers, too.

The Pixel 6a, which normally retails for $449, is still out there for an incredible $299. Let us remind you that this comes with a top notch SoC at $900 Pixel 7 Pro. The Pixel 6a is a great deal even at $449, honestly a rip off of slightly more expensive phones, but Google seems more interested in trying to grab as much market share as possible right now. (Google apparently isn’t happy about this, and the Pixel 7a rumors move the phone even further in the high-end line!)

If you really want the more affordable Pixels with larger, higher refresh rate displays and newer cameras, you can still get deals on them, too. The 90Hz, 6.3-inch Pixel 7, normally $599, can be had for $499, and the 120Hz, 6.7-inch Pixel 7 Pro is down to $749 from the regular $899 price. Google’s fine print actually says that all of these Pixel phone deals will last until Christmas Day.

If you’re really a Google early adopter, the Pixel Watch is also on sale. The Wi-Fi (not LTE) model is on sale for $299, $50 off the regular price. The Pixel Watch is definitely a good start for Google, which has ignored the wearables market for far too long. Criticized in our review for being too pricey, that paltry $50 discount still doesn’t seem like much against devices like the $250 Apple Watch SE, which is a better product in every way. This also isn’t exactly the Pixel Watch you want. The LTE version is still $399 and doesn’t get a discount. Still, here if you want it.

Next; Chromecast devices! The 4K and HD versions are both $10 off, coming to $40 and $20, respectively. These are the two new Chromecasts “with Google TV,” which turns them into Android devices complete with an app store, internal storage, and a remote instead of the simple app streamers they used to be. You can still control them just as easily as your old Chromecast, they have a lot more features now. The problem is that neither model is really built to handle the task of running Android and having an App Store, because they don’t have enough storage. If you try to use the app’s features, you’ll be constantly tweaking the 8GB of internal storage, but at least it’s cheap.

Finally: nest stuff! Smart speakers and displays are also discounted. Most of these deals aren’t available on Amazon, because they’re pretty frivolous about competitors passing on Alexa. The Nest Audio speaker, normally $100, drops to $68, while the smallest Nest Mini, usually $49, is $25. They both play music and let you yell “Hey, Google” hopefully that gets handled by Google’s voice algorithms. Smart Displays add a questionably useful LCD display to the mix, the $100 second-generation Nest Hub ranges from $50 to $50, and the (larger) Next Hub Max ranges from $229 to $174.

All of these deals are also available at Target, Best Buy, and the Google Store.
