Quote :P.S. To help make saying “Hi” to Project Fi a little easier, we’ll be offering the Nexus 5X starting at $199 for the next month when you buy and activate through Project Fi.
Quote :Get up to $150 off the Nexus 5X when you buy from Google and activate with Project Fi
16gb is $199
32gb is $249
add the cost of Project Fi basic + $30. (Don't see anything in the terms about cancelling after a month)
I just talked to a Project Fi rep. If one is a current Project Fi user, they can go to their account page, and click on 'your plan.' On that screen, to the right, is a Plus Sign with Buy New Device. Selecting that, does allow a current member to buy at the discounted price. Of course, the same rule applies regarding activation.

Nexus 5X: Be sure to apply the March 2016 OTA to ensure you have the most stable experience . Factory images here .
I've used Google Fi on the Nexus 6 for several months, here is my impression.
WiFi calling is a lifesaver when no Sprint or Tmobile signal is present, but a local business provides free WiFi.
The ability to install 'Google Hangouts' and 'Hangouts Dialer' onto any other device (iPhone 5 on R+, F3 on FreedomPop, Windows Tablet on WiFi) allows you to send & receive calls and texts using your Google Fi number, similar to iMessages, but without restrictions.
Hangouts delivers text messages without delay to all devices and 'Hangouts Dialer' connects voice calls using your Google Fi number to individuals who cannot tell the call is VoIP.
