Pixel Cheaper on Amazon

Looking to get a new phone finally but noticed that the Pixel 3 XL 128gb is $200 cheaper on Amazon. as compared to  Google's site.    Not sure exactly why.  Google site it is $999, while on Amazon, it is about $799.

 

https://www.amazon.com/Google-Pixel-Unlocked-GSM-CDMA/dp/B07KDWMP86/ref=sr_1_4?keywords=pixel+3+xl&qid=1552051344&s=videogames&sr=8-4

 

That is the link to Amazon's site.  Says sold by Google.  And if it is $200 cheaper, why is that?  It is an unlocked phone and I will be using it on Verizon and looks to be the same as Google's site.

Looks like they are not selling through Google but still not sure how they can discount it by $200.

Good question. From the description, price, etc., it appears to be a good deal.  Absolutely no experience with the seller...nor am I sure of Amazon's protection of buyers with respect to third party sellers. 

 

Seems fine though...I guess.

You'd be crazy to buy a Pixel 3 at full retail price right now. It's been discounted by Google many times, and Pixel 3 128 GB was recently $749. Just wait for a sale.

I am hoping for a deal soon.  Don't really want to pay $1000 for a phone.  Just checking what is out there really.
