For a few very well evaluated phones that didn’t appear to need special introductory offers and discounts to impress stock Android enthusiasts on tight spending plans, the Pixel 3a and 3a XL beyond any doubt got a lot of arrangements during their first couple of long stretches of accessibility. Most of those are currently terminated, which means you can no longer score free gift cards or exchange in an old iPhone at an insanely high value.
While the US online Google Store clearly still accepts trade-ins as an advantageous form of saving money on the Pixel 3a or Pixel 3a XL, the actual value cuts you’re looking at currently are almost negligible. Granted, you can get a considerable discount of up to $610 by giving up your “old” iPhone XS Max in favor of another mid-range Pixel, yet why would anyone ever need to do something like that?
Meanwhile, trade-ins of devices like the iPhone SE, 6s, or iPhone 7 are now priced at up to $63, $112, and $170 respectively. That’s not so terrible if you think about it, however, it’s also a far cry from what Google offered up to this point. You could ditch an iPhone SE and get a whopping $264 towards your Pixel 3a buy only a few days ago, whereas the iPhone 7 was priced at up to $289.
Naturally, all good things must arrive at an end eventually, and these incredibly generous advancements are clearly no exception. It’s additionally worth pointing out that Google has basically aligned its official Pixel 3a and Pixel 3 exchange in projects, offering everyone the same exact discounts. You can change from select Android handsets made by Samsung, LG, Huawei, and Motorola to a new Pixel too at similarly sensible yet not quite mind-blowing markdowns.
Finally, if you don’t have an old, completely functional phone to exchange in, it might likewise be a good idea to look at the most recent bunch of best buy deals including sweet freebies and decent savings with upfront transporter activation.
