Cyber Monday is here again, and as part of Cyber Monday deals at Best Buy, you can get a fantastic deal on one of our favorite Google Pixel phones, either the Google Pixel 8 or the Google Pixel 8 Pro. Both are discounted quite a lot as part of the sales event, with the Pixel 8 losing $150 off of its standard price and the Pixel 8 Pro shedding $200. Take a look at both phones, and their associated deals, in the blurbs below before you decide on which one you want.

Google Pixel 8 — $549, was $699:

Starting with the stats, Google’s Pixel 8 has a 6.2 inch, 1080p screen that refreshes up to 120Hz. It operates on the latest Google Tensor 3 processor and the Android 14 OS with 8GB of RAM, about the same as a fairly standard laptop. One of its coolest features comes in the form of its new Magic Eraser feature. When you take a photo with your Google Pixel 8’s 50MP rear camera or 10.5MP front-facing selfie cam, you might find unwanted objects in the scene. All you need to do is tap the objects to select them and AI magic will erase them from the scene, replacing them with some GPT-style magic imagery. It also has a fantastic battery life, lasting well into the second day after a charge, which makes it (in terms of battery life) better than the Pixel 8 Pro. When you aren’t using your lenses to make magic photos, you can even shoot 4K video.

Google Pixel 8 Pro — $799, was $999

The Pixel 8 Pro is, funny enough, the Google Pixel 8’s main competition. It has a larger 6.7 inch screen with a higher resolution (2992 x 1344p) and is powered by more RAM, this time charging your day with 12GB. You’ll also be blessed with better camera lenses if you get the Pixel 8 Pro, as it includes a higher quality supporting lens and a 48MP telephoto lens. To go with this camera, you’ll also get the ability to put more precision over what type of shot you take, plus some Magic Photo bonuses as well. Really, the only downsides of the Google Pixel 8 Pro are its somewhat shorter battery life (it should still last you until past bedtime) and high price. But hey, right now it is on sale, so that downside is being mitigated in a big way.

Need a new phone? This iPhone can be yours for $149
The Apple iPhone SE 2022.

You might be surprised to hear this, but Apple iPhone products tend to be great traveling companions because of the Apple ecosystem, especially when paired with something like an Apple Watch SE. Even if you don't travel a lot, you can still take advantage of many of Apple's subscription services, such as these great shows on Apple TV+. If you want to get into the Apple ecosystem, there's no cheaper and better way than the iPhone SE 3rd gen. Luckily, Walmart has a great deal on one, bringing it down to $149 from $379, which is a pretty substantial deal.

Why you should buy the Apple iPhone SE
For being a budget phone, we're surprised that the iPhone SE comes with an IP67 resistance rating, meaning it can withstand the elements much better and is a good hiking and traveling companion. It also has wireless charging, which can help avoid dirt getting into the charging port and being pushed in with repeated uses out in the wild. With a weight of just 144 grams and 7.4mm in thickness, the iPhone SE is also lightweight and compact, so it won't take up much space in a bag or pocket, compared to other phones that are almost twice the thickness and weight.

But all of that goes out the door if you're getting a massage at home, in a cozy, full-coverage chair, just like the full body massage chair that's available as part of Best Buy's Deal of the Day. Normally a bank account draining $4,000, you can grab it for $1,600 right now and save $2,400. That's a huge amount of savings, just imagine what you could do with that money. Nothing beats the full body massage this chair gives you though. If you're interested, hurry, because this deal is only live for today.
