PSA: I check Google's rebate offers occasionally and found that they seem to fluctuate widely and are currently high for Black Friday.
Pecking around on Google and Ebay simultaneously I figured out that I could buy a refurb Pixel 5 on ebay for $200, then trade-in on a 7 for a $400 rebate for a net savings of $200. With the 7 at $500 right now, that gets me into a 7 for $300, and haven't sold the almost new 6A yet.
Only reason I'm upgrading is the lack of brightness on the 6A is an issue here in the sunny southwest. The 6A is unreadable with sunglasses on.
