The Google Pixel and Pixel XL have had its fair share of online offers ever since the two arrived in India back in October 2016. It seems even offline retailers are getting in on the discount brigade now, promising Rs 13000 in cashback.
This Google Pixel cashback is valid till May 31 on cash, debit card, and credit card transactions, including EMI purchases. The sum gets deposited to your account within 90 days of the sale in the case of the last two. This time constraint naturally isn’t there if you’re paying via cash of course, so the Rs 13000 cashback is effectively an instant discount.
The banks eligible for the Pixel deal are HDFC Bank, Kotak Mahindra Bank, RBL, HSBC, Indusind Bank, Standard Chartered Bank, Yes Bank, UBI, ICICI Bank, Axis Bank, and Citibank. Note that only one transaction is allowed per card till the end of the offer period.
Flipkart is currently offering a Rs 13000 flat cut of its own for all credit and debit cards, in addition to up to Rs 20000 off upon exchange. Cutting out that much from the cost of the Pixel translates to it coming down to Rs 44000 (32GB) and Rs 53000 (128GB). The Pixel XL effectively falls down to Rs 54000 (32GB) and Rs 63000 (128GB).
Common specifications of the Google Pixel and Pixel XL:
– Display: 5-inch FHD/5.5-inch QHD
– OS: Android 7.1 Nougat
– Storage: 32GB/128GB
– RAM: 4GB

– Connectivity: 4G, Wi-Fiac, Bluetooth 4.2, USB Type-C, NFC, GPS
A prominent retailer apparently told Gadgets 360 that many offline shops are burdened with unsold inventory of the Pixel. The new scheme is meant to get these units into the hands of consumers without having to officially announce a price cut.
