Pixel 4a buy now or wait for a possible BF or BD sale?

Do you guys think the Pixel 4a will go on sale for BF or BD? I'm debating on whether to order it now which won't ship till mid Oct or wait a couple more months for possible sales. With such a late release date I'm thinking there won't be any sales this year.

If your don't immediately need a new phone, yeah I wouldn't be surprised to see a sale at either or both of BF/BD.

Yeah I think I'll wait just in case. Cant see them having more than $50 off but it's better than nothing.

I wanted a Pixel 3 XL when it launched, When it launched, they offered a free cordless charger

On Black Friday, they offered a buy one, get one at 50% off.

Would suggest waiting..... that's how I got my Pixel 3a for $399 CAD. I love this phone to bits! Especially after getting Android 11 yesterday!

Me too. Best phone I ever had. Gonna give it to my wife and get the 4a. I also got the 3a for $399 last year. I can't believe the value for the money in these phones. You can get 2 4a phones for the price of a frickin Iphone.

Same deal for me. Agree, best bang for the money. Might try tomorrow through Best Buy for the 4a. Will see what their delivery date is compared to Google direct.

Try and get a loyalty discount on it from your carrier. I just got an extra $100 off by getting a callback from Koodo.

So getting it for 380 AND they offer a $100 bill credit with the 4a.

Good deal. I didn't think they gave loyalty discounts on the phones, only plans.

Nah, carriers will often throw hardware credits in. I got a ridiculous deal on the original Pixel XL from Rogers way back in the day... Koodo will give you $25-50 without even blinking. More if you push harder.

They're shipping now into October. Might not be until BD for a sale.
