Google is making its Nexus line of phones even more affordable. The Internet firm is offering the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P at a discount of $50 as part of a Valentine’s Day promotion.

Nexus 5X a steal

Earlier this month, Google made a permanent price cut of $30 to the Nexus 5X device, the smaller 5.2-inch smartphone. Now the price of the device has been reduced by another $50 for a limited Valentine’s Day promotion. The company is offering the unlocked 16GB 5X for $299 and the 32GB model for $349.

Though many people have reported performance issues with the Nexus 5X, despite that it is a great device for the cost. The device sports an LCD screen and runs on the powerful Snapdragon 808 processor. It has 2GB of RAM, while the camera of is awesome like the one in the 6P version. The price of $380 was a bit too much for the device, but the current price of $300 is a good one. The device has secured 4.5 out of 5 stars from Amazon customers as well.

Google also makes Nexus 6P more attractive

Google is also offering a discount of $50 on the new matte gold version of the larger Nexus 6P. After the discount, the 32GB unit now costs $449 and 64GB unit $499. The company is also offering a $50 credit towards the purchase of a Huawei Watch, provided the customer buys the 6P model in any color. By adding the credit, Google has surely made the Nexus 6P a bit more tempting.

There are some limitations to the offer. The promo is only for Nexus 6P units bought from the Google Store in the U.S. and Canada. Also the $50 credit can’t be used for other purchases from the Google Store but can only be used towards the purchase of a Huawei Watch. The credit will be forfeited if it is not used before Sept. 1.

Google gave no information regarding the end time of the promotions. But a spokesperson from the company told The Verge that the offers are for a limited time and will last up to the Valentine’s Day (Feb. 14).

On Tuesday, Google shares closed up 0.02% at $733.79. Year to date, the stock is down by almost 6%, while in the last year, it is up by over 35%.
