expiredGoogle Pixel 2 sees $100 price cut at Best Buy on 2-year activations

Best Buy is currently running a sale on the Google Pixel 2 that brings the price down from a total of $650 to $550 over the course of 2 years. This sale only applies to Verizon models as Best Buy obviously doesn’t sell the Google Store version. Remember, this has to be done on a 2-year activation through your Verizon account, so you can’t just buy it outright at the $100 discount. The Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL have been riddled with minor issues lately, but Google is determined to fix them.
