'ZDNET Recommends': What exactly does it mean?
ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.
When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNET nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.
ZDNET's editorial team writes on behalf of you, our reader. Our goal is to deliver the most accurate information and the most knowledgeable advice possible in order to help you make smarter buying decisions on tech gear and a wide array of products and services. Our editors thoroughly review and fact-check every article to ensure that our content meets the highest standards. If we have made an error or published misleading information, we will correct or clarify the article. If you see inaccuracies in our content, please report the mistake via this form.
Google's products have become synonymous with smart technology in recent years. And with the status of being one of the best tech retailers in the game comes fairly high price tags on its products. If you know where – and when – to look, scoring a great deal on Google's signature products can happen, saving you some cash.
Right now, you can save up to 33% on Google's products, ranging from its signature Nest mesh system to $10 off its Pixel Buds A Series. If you've been eyeing the system for a while, it's a good time to buy and set up a great smart home.
Below, we've rounded up the best Google deals so you can save up to $50 now. Be sure to check out the list.
Ever wonder which porch pirate has been nabbing your packages? The Google Nest Cam will keep tabs on your front door, helping ensure your packages stay right there. You can talk to delivery drivers from wherever you are, thanks to the accompanying smart app. The camera stores event histories for three hours without a subscription and up to 60 days if you opt for the subscription.
This is the lowest price we've seen.
Google's signature earbuds are currently $10 off. Full disclosure - they do not come with noise canceling, but they do come with up to five hours of playback, customizable ear tips, and 12mm dynamic speakers that will give your music and podcasts clear, high-quality audio. And they come in two colors.
We never see Google's only earbuds on sale, so even at $10 off, this is a great deal.
When Google launched its flagship phone last year, getting your hands on one for the first month or so was practically impossible, and the hype for the specs versus the price still continues. At 6.7-inches, the phone comes with a host of great features: a special 48MP telephoto lens for taking top-quality images, including a special night shot mode; the first Google Tensor processing chip; and IP68 water and dust resistance. Whether you want the 128GB, 256GB, or the 512GB model, the $100 savings goes across the board – and it includes unlocked phones for activating at your preferred carrier.
Get the 128GB model at Amazon for $795. Going through the Google store allows 24-month financing, interest-free, for only $5 more.
If you're looking for a new mesh system, the Google Nest Wifi is one of the best options on the market right now. This small set can handle up to 200 different devices, so whether you're streaming on your TV in the living room or surfing your phone in the kitchen, you can seamlessly connect. As a bonus, it comes with comprehensive parental controls for monitoring kids' activities.
The lowest price right now is $169 at the Google Store. You can get it at Amazon, but currently it's listed at $195, which is only $4 off sale price -- to be blunt, not a great deal -- so we recommend opting for the Google Store.
