Google Fi has launched some promotional offers. New customers on a Google Fi unlimited plan will get their first 3-months of service for 50% off. Google Fi's unlimited plan is regularly priced at $70/month but is $35 through the special offer. Google Fi also has a new free Motorola phone offer and an ongoing offer to save up to $600 on select Samsung Galaxy phones.
50% Off Plan Offer Fine Print And Details
Customers can claim the 50% off credit by either signing up for their own account or by joining an existing account. New lines of service must activate within 30-days of signing up for Fi on fi.google.com/signup. A new customer is explicitly defined as anyone who has NEVER previously opened a Fi account. For customers joining an existing account, the existing account will NOT receive the 50% off credit for their line, it will only be applied to the new line. Current customers will continue to pay their plan's regular rate. New customers receiving the credit must maintain their account and cannot switch to another account or they won't receive the entire credit.
There is no time frame listed as to when the promotion will end. There may be a limited number of discount offers available, as Google does stipulate the deal will be available "while supplies last."

In order to get the discount on the phone, you must be a new customer porting in and you must keep your account and line active on Google Fi for at least 90 consecutive days. The discount on the phone will be applied at the time you purchase it. However, if you leave Google Fi before satisfying the 90 days of consecutive service requirement, your account will automatically be charged the difference between the sale price and the regular price of the phone. This offer is also scheduled to be available "while supplies last."
