Default Pixel 2XL + Mini + $150 Google Store credit for $849?

google is running a fathers day sale. buy pixel 2 or 2xl at the regular price and google will give you a mini and $150 google store credit. i'd want a 2xl and only need 64gb storage, so it'd run me $849

is this a deal i don't want to lose?

Seeing as the new Pixel is coming out at some point. I'd hold off.

yeah, oct i think, but i'm going to europe in sept and might want the camera upgrade to what i have now (oneplus 5)

ordinarily i'd wait until the pixel 3s come out and get a 2xl on swappa after the prices drop

i'd have gotten the oneplus 6 if they'd come out with a better camera

A mini is like a $30 value. Looks like you're paying full price so I guess it depends on much Google Play media you're buying today. If you think you'll spend $150 on Play stuff anyway, then it seems like a good deal.

the mini retails for $49, but is on sale for $39. the credit would likely be spent on a google home and a case for the phone

They don't even need the button press.
