Or get a Pixel 3 XL for $549.99. They’re refurbished, but still amazing deals on “the best Android phones of 2018.” Plus: an equally amazing power-bank deal.

Huge savings on the Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL.

I know: Another phone? Right on top of yesterday’s Moto X4 deal? Hey, I don’t control when the universe decides to spit out sweet discounts.

And this is pretty sweet — too sweet to pass up just because of repetitive timing. For a limited time, and while supplies last, Daily Steals has the refurbished unlocked Google Pixel 3 for $499.99 shipped with promo code CHPSKTPXL3.

SEE IT AT DAILY STEALSThat same link will give you the option of choosing the Pixel 3 XL for $549.99 after applying that same code.

These flagship phones debuted just a few months ago, with list prices of $799 and $999, respectively. That makes the XL a particularly good deal: Almost half off!

I’m no expert when it comes to the Android phones, so I’ll immediately refer you to CNET’s Google Pixel 3 review and Pixel 3 XL review. TL;DR? The former was found to be “the best Android phone of 2018,” and one of the only 3 phones to receive a CNET Editors’ Choice nod last year. The latter was hailed as “everything we love about the Pixel 3 on a bigger screen.”

These are A-grade refurbs in bulk packaging, with “little to no cosmetic defects.” That means they were all purchased and returned (elsewhere) within seven days. And although Daily Steals lists a 90-day warranty, these should all have additional coverage from Google proper, given that they’re barely six months old.

Indeed, because they’re so new, you don’t have to worry about getting a used battery, which can be an issue with refurbished phones.

I love deals like this. You get a flagship phone for a midrange price, and the only real sacrifice is the retail packaging.

Bonus deals: As you know, I’m a sucker for mobile chargers that have built-in cables. Recently I shared a Mophie power bank that had micro-USB and USB-C plugs. Today I have one for the Apple crowd.

For a limited time, and while supplies last, MobileCityOnline (via Amazon) has the Mophie Encore Plus 20,100-mAh Lighting and Micro-USB power bank for $29.99 with promo code CHSKTMOPHBT. Regular price: $49.99. (And before Mophie discontinued it: even higher.)

SEE IT AT AMAZONThis is great for iDevice users because it lets you charge not only your iPhone or iPad, but also whatever non-Apple devices you happen to own: Wireless headphones, Kindle ereader, Oculus Go VR headset and so on.

And thanks to its high capacity, you should be able to charge everything multiple times. The vast majority of other power banks in this price range are either a much lower capacity or lacking the built-in cables.
