    Ends Boxing Day (inclusive) according to the email I got.

      Would you be willing to upload a PDF of that email? I sorely need it for my price protection claim. I would be forever grateful!

  •  

    Hmm…stick with Pixel 2 XL (still shrink wrapped), or return it, pay $200 more and get Pixel 3?

    Btw OP, deal ends 1st of January/while stocks last according to a FB post by JB.

      Cheers, added to description.

        Sorry, I was wrong. JB's post about ending January 1st was general - the Pixel 3 deals are Boxing Day only - they made a follow up post regarding specifically this phone. aja12 is right.

      I'd say the biggest deciding factors would be:

      • End of official support period. You'll get an extra year with the Pixel 3.
      • Device size. Pixel 3 is fairly compact (145.6 x 68.2 x 7.9mm), while the Pixel 2 XL is exactly what it says on the tin (157.9 x 76.7 x 7.9mm).

      2 XL has 1440p, but super high resolution on a phone sized device isn't as big of a deal as most make it out to be.

      SD835 vs 45 is also a fairly minor difference. They'll both be more than competent for most tasks.

      I'd say 2 XL if you don't care about the excessively large size of modern smartphones (or if you're a big screen guy) and the 3 if you are willing to pay extra for a more compact package.

      The 3 will get photo storage for longer for free in original size than the 2 if you hat bothers you.

      For the small difference I think the 3 is worth it, but they're not the same devices.

    •  

      The screen on my pixel 2 xl is not worth the price. I'd swap if I was you.

  •  

    Wonder if google will have a boxing day sale with the same price. Hopefully with the stand included too.

    So, my Brother in law just bought this phone a couple of days ago from JB (I know, I know but his old phone broke and he didn't want to wait).

    I've heard of others getting the difference back when a sale comes on shortly after (like this). What's the process and is it likely to be approved?

      I believe it's as simple as your brother in law taking his receipt in, with his method of payment (so.. his credit card etc), and making mention of the paid price and advertised price at the counter. From memory if it's within 30 days it's okay?

  •  

    So with the 64GB at $999, are they likely to offer the $500 off on a new plan for $1000 phones? If so that's enough to push it over the line for me.

  •  

    Not sure if everyone realises (I didn't), but you don't need to wait for the stores to open to grab one of these on sale… you can just click and collect, so you can avoid the boxing day morning sales rush.

    HN and Google store have done the same! Good for those that have the amex cashback for HN :)

  •  

    Wouldn't budge on ticket price. Even with purchasing other items if anyone was curious.

    •  

      It is the best price you can get on the phone, why would they go cheaper when they know you can't get it cheaper anywhere else?

  •  

    Trying to buy this online using JB HI-FI Gift cards. It accepts 5 cards but wont allow me to add any more. Assuming there is a 5 gift card limit when using online. Does the same limit exist in store? Pity as I was hoping to buy the Pixel using gift cards whilst its $200 cheaper..

    I'd like to claim the difference back from my credit card insurance via price protection but I need a copy of the offer in a physical catalogue and it doesn't look like JB has it published according to their online catalogue. Any ideas?

  •  

    I'm really tempted but the pixel 2 xl is just so good…
