If you’ve been holding off on a new Pixel smartphone, Chromecast with Google TV, Nest Hub, or other Google hardware, the online giant has some good news. In 10 days, it will host a Black Friday sale that will offer significant discounts on some of its key products.

You can find a preview of Google’s 2022 Black Friday sale on the Google Store website. Among the sales that will start on November 17, 2022 are:

Pixel 7 Pro. Google’s flagship smartphone normally starts at $899, but it will be on sale for $749 and up, a savings of $150.

Pixel 7. The Pixel 7 will likewise be on sale, in this case for $499, or $100 off the normal $599 (and up) pricing.

Pixel 6a. Google’s most affordable smartphone, the Pixel 6a, normally costs $449 and up, but it will be on sale for an incredible $299 and up, or $150 off.

Chromecast with Google TV. The HD and 4K variants of the Chromecast with Google TV will be $10 off, with prices starting at just $19.99.

Pixel Buds A-series. Google’s entry-level earbuds will be $64, or $35 off the normal $99 price point.

Nest Hub (2nd Gen). Google’s smaller smart display—with a 7-inch display—will be $50 off, or just $49.99.

Nest Thermostat. Normally $129.99, but will be $40 off, or $89.99.

Nest Cam (Battery). Normally $179.99, but on sale for $60 off, or $119.99.

Nest Doorbell (Battery). Also normally $179.99, but on sale for $60 off, or $119.99.

I’m hoping there’s more on November 17, as I’ve been holding off on getting the Google Nest Wifi Pro (Wi-Fi 6E). But I’ll probably get a Pixel 7 or 7 Pro during the sale at least.
