Because of how well-received it was by reviewers and Android fans, the Pixel 6 has become a hard phone to buy. Here’s where to find the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro in stock to buy Google’s best phones for yourself.

Due to the ongoing chip shortage, combined with “high demand” for the Pixel 6 Pro, some customers’ pre-orders have been delayed, while retailers are having trouble keeping the phones in stock. In particular, the Google Store is currently unable to ship new orders for the Pixel 6 Pro until at least January. Thankfully, it’s all too easy to get the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro from places other than the Google Store.

Where Pixel 6 & Pixel 6 Pro are in stock

If you’re shopping for an unlocked phone in the US, other than the Google Store, there are only four authorized retailers where you can buy the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro: Amazon, Best Buy, B&H, and Target. Of course, all four retailers are limited to selling only what they can get from Google, and the demand for Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro phones is currently massively outweighing the available supply.

The two retailers to really keep an eye on are Target and Best Buy, as it’s possible that your local store could have Pixel 6 units in stock at the store. Similarly, both retailers offer the ability to have your order shipped to your local store for pickup – in case shipping to your home isn’t a good option for your situation.

We’ll keep an eye on the inventories of each retailer over the coming weeks and keep you updated on the quickest ways to buy the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro.

Latest update: As of November 1, 2021, all five retailers are able to take orders for the smaller Pixel 6, with some shipping sooner than others. With a bit of luck, you may even be able to get same-day pickup from Best Buy. Meanwhile, Amazon is unfortunately your worst bet for the small Pixel 6 at the moment, shipping in either weeks or a few months depending on your preferred color.

If you’re hoping to buy through the Google Store — a good idea for those with a Google One membership, given the 3/10% credit — the Pixel 6 is a bit backordered and the Pixel 6 Pro is only in stock for Verizon subscribers.

Pixel 6 & Pixel 6 Pro from carriers

In the United States, cell carriers have a lot of weight in the smartphone industry. As such, it shouldn’t be surprising to learn that many of them can get you the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro faster than retailers. Better yet, many carriers can offer financing for your new phone that’s bundled in with your cell phone bill.

On the flip side, though, you’ll end up paying more for the smaller Pixel 6 if you buy through AT&T or Verizon, as these carriers are selling the mmWave variants which cost $100 more than unlocked models. Worse, AT&T has been noted to sell all of their Pixel 6 phones for $40 more than any other retailer or carrier, for whatever reason.

Latest update: As of November 1, 2021, the Pixel 6 Pro is still in stock at quite a few carriers, making them the best — and only — way to buy Google’s latest high-end flagship. Of particular note, Verizon is the only carrier offering the Pixel 6 Pro in Sorta Sunny, though on a slight backorder. AT&T and Verizon are also the only carriers to offer the Pixel 6 Pro in Cloudy White, albeit with a longer one to two week backorder.

Luckily, if you’re trying to get the smaller Pixel 6, just about every carrier you can think of has the phone in stock. It’s just a matter of how picky you are about the color, with smaller carriers often only offering the Stormy Black colorway.
