At Best Buy, you can get the Pixel 6a for just $299 ($150 off) when you activate the phone on a supported network, including Google Fi and Sprint. Alternatively, the Pixel 6a has been slashed to $399 ($50 off) when you buy it unlocked from Amazon or Best Buy.

Nearly all flagship smartphones these days include wireless charging capabilities, but unless you go out and pick up a wireless charger, the feature’s basically nonexistent. Luckily, some wireless charging solutions are pretty affordable, like this Anker Wireless Charger for $10.99 ($3 off). It features Qi technology — making it compatible with both iPhones and most Android devices, including those from Samsung and Google — 10W of power output, and it’s even able to charge through cases up to 5mm thick. The only downside is that this device does not come with a charging adapter in the box.
