New Gold Nexus 6P already on sale, as Nexus 5X picks up a free Visa gift card
CES 2016 may not have brought us a ton of all-new phones, but we sure got to see new spins on some recent models, and that included the golden special edition Nexus 6P graduating to wide availability. The handsome-looking handset emerged as a show favorite, and shoppers have been free to pick one up for themselves both through the Google Store and with retail partner Best Buy. Even though the gold Nexus 6P is still the new hottness, it’s already attracting efforts to make it just a bit more commercially appealing in the form of some solid discounts, bringing the price down fifty dollars.
At Best Buy right now, shoppers can pick up the gold Nexus 6P for $450 (32GB) or $500 (64GB). These discounts apply only to the new gold edition, and are so far present only at Best Buy – Google’s still got the gold Nexus 6P for full price.
It’s not clear how long this deal might last, so if you’ve been tempted by the phone’s new color option, this could be an ideal time to pick one up.
Today’s savings aren’t just for the Nexus 6P, though, and we’ve also caught word of a new deal available for the Nexus 5X, as well. This time we’re looking to an eBay seller who has the phone listed for just $300 (16GB) or $350 (32GB). That comes in $50 less than Google’s own pricing, and there’s the added allure of a bundled $20 Visa gift card – so effectively, we’re looking at a $280 Nexus 5X. That’s a good price for a regular phone, let alone one with the Nexus family’s early access to software updates.
Amazon’s also got the Nexus 5X for $50 off, but without the Visa bonus.
Between the two of these offers, are you tempted to sink a little cash on a new Nexus?
