The new Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL smartphones are definitely the hottest new smartphones in town, and they are not even available in retail stores just yet. There is one thing that is certain about the new phones and that is their price.

If there is one constant relating to all flagship smartphone releases in 2017, it is the wallet busting prices people are expected to pay for them. Using Google’s new phones as an example, a Pixel 2 or Pixel 2 XL will set you back a pretty penny – $749 for a Pixel 2 with 128GB of storage, for instance. But what if you could get, say, the original Pixel with the same amount of storage, giving you room to grow? What if you could get one of those for, say, $499?

Well you can, and furthermore, if you need the larger Pixel XL, again with the same storage, you will be able to pick one up for just $549. And while these deals are on refurbished items, they are certified refurbs, meaning they have gone through proper checks before being sent out to you. In essence, you’re getting as good as new for not a lot of money, comparatively.

This “Certified Refurbished” product is tested and certified to look and work like new. The refurbishing process includes functionality testing, basic cleaning, inspection, and repackaging. The product ships with all relevant accessories, a minimum 90-day warranty, and may arrive in a generic box. Only select sellers who maintain a high performance bar can offer these Certified Refurbished products.

This being a collection of refurbished devices, you may want to hurry if you are going to order. There will likely only be so many to go around, and if the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL are just a little too rich for your blood, then these older devices are still excellent options, and at this price you really cannot go wrong with chancing your arm. We doubt you will regret it.
