The Google Store is having a back-to-school sale right now, with big savings on Pixel, Pixel XL, and more.

You can find out more about the sale on the Google Store website. But here’s a roundup of the key savings:

Pixel and Pixel XL are up to $200 off, and you get a free Daydream View VR headset. Google is finally pricing its flagship handsets somewhere close to Nexus territory (which is where pricing should have been all along). A 32 GB Pixel is now $524 (normally $649), and the 128 GB version is $100 more. The 32 GB Pixel XL is now $569 (normally $769), whereas the 128 version is $669 (normally $869). Also, every Pixel/Pixel XL purchase comes with a free Daydream View VR headset.

Google Home is $20 off. This isn’t a particularly notable deal, as Google Home is often on sale, but you can pick up the firm’s digital assistant appliance for just $109 during this sale.

Buy a Google Wifi 3-pack and get a free Chromecast Audio. This isn’t unique to the back-to-school sale, but if you purchase a Google Wifi 3-pack for the normal $299 price, you get a Chromecast Audio (a $35 value) for free.

The Google back-to-school doesn’t have a definitive time frame, but the firm says the Pixel handsets are on sale “while supplies last.” Which suggests this may be tied to coming refresh.
