We all want to think we're getting value for money. And that probably explains why Google Pixel 3a deals - released earlier this year - have been so popular. A modern phone with a low price tag. And now EE has come along and made this cheap smartphone even better value by throwing in a terrific tech freebie.
EE is currently offering Google Pixel 3a deals with free gifts including your choice of an Xbox One S, Sonos One or B&O headphones. That means a freebie up to the value of a stonking £250.
With prices starting from £34 a month, the inclusion of these free gifts hasn't even boosted the price sky high like we're used to seeing with gift offers.
And, for those who want to go all out on their new phone deal, EE also offers its Smart Plans for a fiver more a month. These allow you to upgrade your contract whenever you want and feature so-called Swappable Benefits giving you the options to choose between data-free streaming on your Apple Music subscription, similar unlimited data for streaming the likes of YouTube, BBC iPlayer and Netflix, or access to the BT Sport app.
We've listed the best of these Google Pixel 3a and 3a XL deals down below so you can choose which works best for you (promotion ends on September 2). Or, if none quite take your fancy, consult our guide to the best mobile phone deals for all your other options.
