Google trade-in values for old Pixels skyrocket w/ Pixel 6a


The US Google Store is running a rather notable trade-in promotion for the Pixel 6a that significantly increases the trade-in value of older Pixel, as well as iPhone and Samsung, devices.

Update 9/16: With this promotion winding down next Saturday (September 24), the Google Store has lowered Pixel trade-in values. It’s no longer $300 across the board, though you can still get near that with the Pixel 4/XL, 5, and 5a.

However, the Pixel 3a/XL, 4a, and 4a 5G suffer the most with only a $200 trade-in value. This route is still the best deal for those with Google’s older mid-ranger phones that will soon hit end of life in terms of software updates. However, note discounts at Amazon, Best Buy, and other retailers.

Trade-in Storage Pixel 6a Pixel 6 9/16
Pixel 3 64GB $85 $32 $82
128GB $100 $47 $84
Pixel 3 XL 64GB $100 $64 $95
128GB $110 $74 $100
Pixel 3a 64GB $300 $47 $200
Pixel 3a XL 64GB $300 $68 $200
Pixel 4 64GB $290 $111 $285
128GB $300 $121 $295
Pixel 4 XL 64GB $290 $142 $285
128GB $300 $152 $295
Pixel 4a 128GB $300 $84 $200
Pixel 4a 5G 128GB $300 $84 $200
Pixel 5 128GB $300 $347 $290
Pixel 5a 128GB $300 $200 $290

Update 8/8: Google has brought back the significant boost to trade-in values for the Pixel 6a until Saturday, September 24. The difference is that there’s no free Pixel Buds A-Series offer, and it comes just after the $50 Google Store credit ended.

This applies to all 6a models sold on, including Unlocked, Google Fi, Verizon, and AT&T.

Like before, the chart below assumes that your Pixel turns on, is free of cracks, and has a working screen. To see how much Google increased the trade-in values for what’s basically a $149 Pixel 6a, we show the credit you’ll get when buying the Pixel 6. 

Update 7/26: As a reminder, the boosted trade-in expires on Wednesday (July 27, 2022 at 11:59 p.m. PT) before the Pixel 6a hits retail. You also have until then to get Pixel Buds A-Series for free with your 6a pre-order. Depending on your location, Friday delivery (in the US) is still possible if you order today.

Original 7/21: When buying the Pixel 6a through the US Google Store, trade-in values have significantly increased to a maximum of $300 if your Google device is in the best condition possible.

The Pixel 3a and 3a XL are the oldest phones eligible for the $300 trade-in credit. Others include the Pixel 4, 4 XL, 4a, 4a 5G, 5, and even last year’s 5a. (For comparison, the Pixel 3 XL tops out at $110.)

This boosted trade-in ends on Wednesday, July 27 at 11:59 p.m. PT, or just before the Pixel 6a hits retail. Remember that you’ll also get Pixel Buds A-Series with your pre-order, which is another $99 value. Check out the terms and conditions:

Trade-in values vary based on condition, year, and configuration of your eligible device, and are subject to change upon inspection. Credit card refund available only on a card used to purchase the Pixel phone. Phone trade-in…
