In the latest development from the ongoing Google Store summer sale, the company is sweetening the pot for buyers of the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro smartphones. In addition to the already attractive discounts on these flagship devices, Google is now offering four months of its premium AI subscription service, Google One AI Premium, absolutely free.

As we reported earlier, the Google Store summer sale kicks off with some exciting deals on Pixel devices. The highlight of this promotion is the substantial price cuts on the Pixel 8 Pro ($250 off, now $749) and the Pixel 8 ($150 off, now $549).

However, Google has now added an enticing bonus to this already compelling offer. For a limited time, those who purchase either the Pixel 8 or the Pixel 8 Pro during the summer sale period will receive a four-month subscription to Google One AI Premium, valued at $79.96, absolutely free.


The Google One AI Premium subscription unlocks advanced AI capabilities, including access to Gemini Advanced on and the mobile app, as well as Gemini integration in Gmail and other Workspace apps. Subscribers also enjoy 2TB of Google One storage for Photos and Drive.

Google is touting the AI Premium subscription as a powerful tool for Pixel users, allowing them to “quickly uncover insights, identify trends, summarize key information, and process significantly more information with a 1 million token context window – so you can tackle more complex problems than ever before.” Additionally, the subscription enables users to “make everyday tasks easier with Gemini in Gmail, Docs, and more,” by leveraging AI assistance for drafting invites, resumes, and more directly within Google’s productivity apps.

This offer is separate from the on-device Gemini Nano capabilities, which are set to arrive on the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8a in the near future, promising “Dynamic Suggestions” powered by AI.

The four-month Google One AI Premium subscription sweetens an already attractive deal for those considering the purchase of Google’s latest flagship smartphones. With substantial discounts on the hardware and a generous helping of AI smarts thrown in, the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro are shaping up to be compelling choices for consumers seeking a premium Android experience with a potent AI twist.
