Preorder Google’s Pixel 6A and get Pixel Buds A-Series for free - The Verge
This deal roundup highlights Google’s excellent preorder perk that tosses in a free set of Pixel Buds A-Series earbuds when you preorder the Pixel 6A. Other deals include $40 off the Nintendo Switch Lite and a $40 Echo Show 5.
Welcome to the weekend. This week was a deal drought relative to last week’s Prime Day-filled coverage, but there are still some cool, limited-time offers that are worth highlighting. For one, Google flipped on preorders for the Pixel 6A phone and the Pixel Buds Pro after a long wait since their announcement at Google I/O 2022. And for people who want the Pixel 6A, placing a preorder at Amazon or Best Buy will get you a complementary set of Pixel Buds A-Series wireless earbuds that normally cost $100 alone.
Allison Johnson published a review of the Pixel 6A on Thursday, and it seems like it was worth the wait. While it has a 6.1-inch OLED screen that’s both smaller (some may prefer this) and slower in terms of refresh rate (60Hz vs. 90Hz) than the Pixel 6, it has the same Tensor processor. So, at least it should be able to keep up in terms of speedy performance. As for the Pixel Buds A-Series earbuds that come free with this deal, they don’t have active noise cancellation or wireless charging — both of which are present in the Pixel Buds Pro — but they sound wonderful considering they’re a freebie.
