After many promotions since the launch of the Google Pixel 7 series over the past couple of months, the Google Store has just popped up radically Lowered the trade-in value on your old phone, especially if it’s a Pixel.
Since the launch of the Pixel 7 in October, Google has offered enhanced swap values in its store for various devices. This included high values for devices such as the iPhone 12, iPhone 13, many Samsung devices, and also older Google Pixel phones. Recently, the combination of the discount on the Pixel 7 and the value boost on the Pixel 6 resulted in an upgrade that cost just $20.
But now, the Google Store has decimated the exchange values of most devices, especially the older Pixel phones.
The easiest example to point to is the Pixel 6 series — where once the Pixel 6 was worth around $480 in trade-in, it’s now worth just $150. The Pixel 6 Pro is also down to $190 from about $550. It’s a steep drop, to say the least. Other older Pixel phones also dropped by similar amounts. Below, you can see the current trade-off value for what Google was offering in October. However, keep in mind that these values have changed quite a bit over the past two months, so the rates from October may not be in place over the past few weeks.
|Trade values in the google store||The value is 12/12||The value is 10/7|
|Pixel 6 Pro||$190||$480|
|Pixel 5||105 bucks||$400|
|Pixel 5a phone||$100 dollars||$350|
|Pixel 4 XL||$90||305 bucks|
|Pixel 4a phone||$71||$300|
|Pixel 4a 5G||$63||$325|
|Pixel 3 XL||$49||$271|
|Pixel 3a phone||$37||$150|
|Pixel 3a XL||$37||$150|
|Pixel 2||$25.01||$100 dollars|
|Pixel 2 XL||$25.01||$95|
|Pixel XL||$25.01||$100 dollars|
The absolute highest trade-in value you can currently get for a Pixel phone on the Google Store is just $205 for the 512GB Pixel 6 Pro. Yikes.
Moreover, Google has also reduced the exchange value of many other devices. We’ve tracked some of the changes below based on the values we’ve tracked over the past few weeks.
|Trade values in the google store||The value is 12/12||previous trade value|
|Galaxy S22 Ultra||$285||$775|
|iPhone 12||$266||510 bucks|
|iPhone 12 Mini (128 GB)||204 USD||$460|
Google will certainly boost additional commerce in its store once in a while as some promotions pop up, but in the meantime, it sure is a shame to see those values so low, especially with the holidays fast approaching. On the bright side, Google has brought back Pixel 7 discounts.
Notably, Google still prominently advertises that you can get the Pixel 7 “for free with a qualifying trade-in.” That’s still true with some iPhone and Samsung Galaxy trade-ins, but it’s clearly very difficult to hit the $499 minimum that gives users a free Pixel 7.
