Google Pixel 5 deals

With the Pixel 6 to be launched and the Pixel 5a release, I am hoping that providers will eventually discount the Pixel 5 to get rid of inventory. I got the Pixel 3 after the 4 was released with a 360 dollar tab credit, and hoping to find something similar.

I don't mind being locked down for 2 years, don't really care about the provider much, but aim to stick to $35 dollars with 6-7GB data. I currently have a $35/6GB/1000 LD minutes and unlimited Text/Talk with Koodo and am post the 24-month contract term.

In case someone stumbles across the Pixel 5 on sale somewhere, please do let me know. :) Thanks a bunch in advance!

Current offers I given when asked each provider (Aug 18th 2021):
  • Koodo loyalty - $45 dollar 8GB plan + 150 dollar device credit = 90 more in cost over 2 years than buying the phone outright and keeping my current plan
  • Fido - $45 dollar plan + no device credit, so full price over 2 years. = 240 more in cost over 2 years than buying the phone outright and keeping my current plan
  • Telus - $55 8GB "migration" plan and 35/month for the phone = yea...no.
  • Rogers - $60, 20GB plan, no device credit = way too expensive.
  • Bell - have not checked
  • Virgin Mobile: $200 device credit spread across 24 months + $50 bill credit, but no discounted plans = $110 more if I go with their $50 plan vs. sticking to what I have and buy the phone outright
Mobile: $18.13/month BYOD - 12GB Data, 1000 LD Min. (Koodo)
$50 plan + $23 phone - $4.16 trade-in credit - $33.33 phone resell - $5.51 plan credit - $11.87 VISA GCs = $18.13/month!
Internet: $82.90 - 750/100 Mbps (Lightspeed)
Spotify: $20 USD/year

Smaller, better screen, more memory. But mainly size to me quite frankly. I have a Pixel 3 now and want to continue using a compact phone. :)
