Have they announced whether Best Buy would have a promo like the 7 where the trade-in value was the previous pro model was roughly 60% of the new phones value along with gift cards? Was too good of a deal to pass up and would like to utilize it again

I ordered from BB - got 200 for my P7 - no where near last year's deal - BUT - you get a free watch -
black watch - black band.
I think the P7 cost me about 0 after later year's deal.

I compared the two before committing my order, and BB was offering far less in trade-in for my P7 Pro 256GB than Google - $300 from BB vs $420 from Google.

Appreciate the responses. Frustrating bc I got $565 off my P7P for my P6P (as well as the $200 BB GC) but I was a little late to the party and it wasn't preorder. Hopefully after a month or so they start to offer the same value.

Thanks again!

Update - checked back with BB... They added another promo on top to where it gave me a $550 total credit in trade-in, making it a substantially better deal than Google's (still includes the watch, still scheduled available for pickup on release date). Have now ordered through them and canceled my Google order.

Add the 349 for the watch to the 200 for the P7 and it is close to last year's deal - I'd rather have the $$$$$$s

Guess I'll skip the 8 Pro unless I sell my P Fold...Google doesn't even list it to trade in... :cry:

I did order the Black 128 with the P 2 Watch as a matter of course, but I'll probably cancel.

I wish I had kept the P7 Pro... gave it to my brother 2 months ago after he lost his P7...

256 Black Pro (and case)
Black Watch 2 (Wifi)
Oct 12-13

Pleasantly surprised seeing my delivery estimate is similar to everyone else's. Was hoping to order during the announcement but was super busy at work today, so just now ordered. I am a little surprised this thread does not have more activity. Are people losing faith in the Pixel lineup?

So wait, they gave you $550 credit and the new Pixel watch?

That's a hell of a deal ..... I would rather have the BB GC bc I'm getting ready to buy a new TV but still....

Yep. Turns out first time I looked they hadn't gone live with the second credit yet. So the $300 was just a direct BB credit towards anything, and then there's the additional $250 when you use it then towards the phone. Tough to pass up.
