The Pixel 4a 5g is $299 for new customers porting in a number. Here's the promotion terms [google.com]


It also stacks with their latest trade in prices as noted on this thread:

https://slickdeals.net/f/14545055-google-fi-offering-higher-trade-in-discount-500

Which makes the deal even more slick. Here's the math including the $330 value for a iPhone 7.


Pixel 4a 5g ($499) - new customer with port in ($200) + 2 months of service without using any data ($40) - 1 month ($20 with referral) = $319

From $319 - trade in of iPhone 7 ($330) = - $11

https://fi.google.com/about/phones/pixel-4a-5g/

QA Note: Trade in value of $330 for iPhone 7 NLA

Edit: https://docs.google.com/spreadshe...sp=sharing

Thanks for user GreyMaid178 and SlickDealzYo for keeping track of the lowered trade-in values

Promotion Terms: $200 off Pixel 4a (5G) with purchase, activation and number transfer
New Fi customers get a $200 phone discount with the purchase and activation of a Pixel 4a (5G) phone from fi.google.com. You must also bring/transfer your number to Fi from your current carrier to be eligible.

How do I qualify for the $200 discount as a new Fi customer?
A new Fi customer is somebody who is new to Google Fi on either a new plan, or a new member as a part of an existing group plan. If you had previously used Google Fi at any point, even if you are not currently (or recently) a customer, you do not qualify as a new customer. This is not clear from ANY of their offer language.
To qualify for the full $200 discount, you need to:
Activate the phone on a full service plan (data-only SIMs do not qualify) within 30 days of the shipment confirmation email and remain active on Google Fi for 60 consecutive days.
You must also bring/transfer your number to Fi within 30 days of the shipment confirmation email. Fi-to-Fi number transfers are not eligible.
If you choose to get a new number, you will not receive the $200 discount.

Any other details to know?
Offer is valid while supplies last or while the promotion is live and available on the fi.google.com site.
For individual plans, limit one per person. For group plans, limit one per group plan member.
Offer is only available to U.S. residents 18 years or older, and requires Google Pay and Google Fi accounts.
Unless otherwise stated, this offer cannot be combined with other offers.
Discount is not transferable and is not valid for cash or cash equivalent.
If Google Fi determines that this offer is used in connection with abuse, misuse, or fraud, or if the account used to purchase the phone is not in good standing, the discounted amount will be charged to your Google Pay account.
Void where prohibited.

Transfer your number between Google Voice and GoogleFi [google.com] Google Voice to Fi transfer is not eligible.

Quote from Bflo23 :
How does Google fi data work? It says 1GB data for $10. Does that mean if I use 20mb for the month that I automatically get charged $10... and then every other 1GB it is another $10. Or do they charge $10 once you hit the 1GB mark.

You're essentially charged per MB at $0.01/MB, so if you used 20MB for the month, your data cost would be $0.20.
If you used 550MB, your data bill would be $5.50.

I'm on the FE now, IMO its simply a trade off. FE has bigger battery, better hardware all around, but the fingerprint scanner in screen instead of on the back is super annoying to me, it's becoming a deal breaker.

FE is superior in every way.

- Use a Fi referral code in Checkout. You get $20 Fi credit, after 30 days of service.
(i.e. You'll be charged for the first month. This $20 credit applies for the second month dues)

I'd be really careful with this. There are already some threads online (google it) about this year's trade-in program nightmares: the trade credit comes as FI service credit, NOT a refund to your credit card, even though they paid in full and were expecting a refund. So if you're willing to stay with FI for a year, go ahead. Otherwise, don't risk trading in one of the high-value phones.
Here is a work around for those with " existing Fi or current Fi member to get $200 discount. If you already activated and got email like oops don't miss out on rebate...bla bla bla:

1. Use a google account that has never been with Fi before.
2. On your new device ( Pixel 4a 5G for example ) go to your app. Click and hold Fi app, then select app info. Click Disable. A message will pop up just click disable app.
3. Go to Play store on the search box type in google fi. Click install. Once done click open then start activate with fresh new or never been Fi account.
4. Once done your status will not update till next day.
5. Next morning wake up have a coffee, reading some news, then go to your old google fi account, click on Fi savings then smile as 4 of 5 check mark were checked. The last one is Keep device active on Fi for xx more days.

Hope this help with those with problem like me being denied $200 off.
I travelled internationally quite heavily before the onset of COVID, so non-upcharged 4G data anywhere I traveled was a huge benefit.

I'm also at my computer almost all day, so the Hangouts integration was also quite beneficial. I could reply to texts while working without skipping a beat, or make calls from the same headphones I was using for music.

Hangouts integration was also hugely helpful when my phone broke overseas and all I had to do was buy a new $100 phone and I could use my Fi number.

Another great benefit was that my Pixel 3 was essentially free with the Fi travel gift card promo from 2018. I paid $800 for the P3, and was given an $800 Airbnb gift card, and since I already had a trip planned for the next spring, that covered my costs.

I also never used much data, so for two people, my bill was on average $35-40/month, which I know can be beat by some others, but I was comfortable paying it because I'm satisfied with the service. If you really like a $9 sandwich, you don't go to a different restaurant to save $2 on a sandwich you sort of like simply because it's cheaper. Although I guess that makes you lazy.

People use Fi, and whether or not you struggle to believe it, some people are actually even *satisfied* with their service!

You could have simply said "decent deal on the phone, but the service is too expensive for me, don't see much benefit for how I use my phone", yet you decided to brand every single user of Fi as lazy or too dumb to know better.

This is already being discussed here and here.

By the way, very nice "subtle" way of adding in your referral code! Smilie (Edit: I see you removed it now, I don't have a problem per se but I guess it violates SD rules).

Phones are unlocked. I'm just going to activate fi and then immediately take it out and use my regular sim. I had to throw away port anyway.

Would you be able to use another SIM from another carrier for that 3 months in this phone as long as you keep paying the Google FI and get your credit?

None of the referral codes I have found are able to apply. I'm wondering if it's not compatible with the discount.

Do they do a credit check for the sign up?

Can I port from Boost? Seems like the cheapest on eBay.
