The Pixel 6a is one of the best cheap phones you can buy. However, you don't have to pay the full $449 price to score one. Pixel 6a deals are now available offering Google's phone at a fraction of its listed price. 

In fact, one of our favorite Google Pixel 6a deals comes courtesy of Verizon. Currently, you can get the Google Pixel 6a for free at Verizon (opens in new tab) when you open a new line with select unlimited plans. It's the best deal we've seen for Google's newly launched phone. 

The Google Pixel 6a replaces the Pixel 5a on our list of the best Android phones you can buy. It features a 6.1-inch display coupled with the same Google Tensor chip found in the flagship Pixel 6. Google also says it'll support the phone with security updates for five years, which makes it an even bigger value for consumers who want to stretch their dollar with a phone that'll last awhile. 

So we're rounding up the best Pixel 6a deals you can get right now. Whether you're looking for deals tied to a carrier or the best unlocked Pixel 6a deals — here are the week's best promos.
