  • Google Store summer sale: Pixel 2 XL, Home, & Chromecast, including $150 off Home Max pair

The phone easily earned our Editors' Choice award for its great all-around performance, but the Pixel 2 XL's blending of a top-of-the-line mobile camera with Google's A.I. magic results in one of the most fun, elegant camera experiences you'll find in a camera today. Google has kicked off one of its own over at the Google Store, dropping prices on a number of devices.

Google's Nest products are not on sale, and neither is the regular Pixel 2, the latter of which is odd to us (since the Pixel 2 XL is discounted).

Unfortunately, the smaller Pixel 2 is not included, while Google is also discounting the 2nd-generation Daydream View by half. Google will also shave $150 off the price of two Google Home Max speakers when you buy them together, which is a fairly attractive deal given how expensive the Home Max is. The standard Pixel 2 doesn't qualify for this discount, so you'll have to stick with its larger brother if you want to save some cash on a phone. For a lot less, you can buy the Home Mini, which is $15 cheaper than the $50 MSRP. So if you're hoping to get a cheaper Pixel 2 you're out of luck for the time being.

B&H Photo is now offering up the Google Home Mini for just $34.

If you have any money left over from Steam's recent sales bonanza, you can head over to the Google Store and grab a variety of electronics at a discount.

There aren't any deals to be found on the Pixelbook, but there is an $80 discount on Google Clips to take advantage of.

Of course with all retail deals you won't have to wait for delivery, making it easy to scratch that particular tech itch, but if you do decide to order from the Google Store you can get all your goodies delivered free - although if you want them super fast you'll can choose to pay for faster delivery.
