Title: "Free" Google Pixel 3 and XL with Google Fi
Post by: yelped on November 28, 2018, 12:24:19 PM
Today only. Get equivalent to amount spent with a number of travel partners. Must stay with Fi for a couple of months. Could sell the GCs here and get the Pixel phones for 80% off (excluding taxes).

See T&C's here: https://fi.google.com/about/device-promo-terms/?utm_source=bing&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=1004502%20%7C%20Project%20Fi%20%7C%20DR%20%7C%20ESS01%20%7C%20NA%20%7C%20US%20%7C%20en%20%7C%20Tab%2BPhone%20%7C%20Bing%20SEM%20%7C%20BKWS%20~%20Google%20Fi%20-%20Exact#$200-fi-service-credit-with-compatible-phone-activation-on-google-fi-promotion-terms

No you just bring your current mobile number to them. Stay for minimum time they require then go with anyone you want.

So if I sign up for Google Fi I’m paying about $20 a month for about 2-3 months & price of a phone+taxes-gc or just getting a $200 Fi credit?

Calculations right?
Title: Re: "Free" Google Pixel 3 and XL with Google Fi
Post by: ChaimMoskowitz on November 28, 2018, 05:35:17 PM

Ok now I am confused. I thought you had to buy a phone and port a number to get the price of the phone back in GC's, no?

Post by: KidOOO on November 28, 2018, 09:27:22 PM
Yes.

FYI as per Dan's post, as well as T&C this only works with porting an existing number

New Google Fi users must transfer (port-in) their current personal number over to Google Fi during sign up. The number being transferred must be currently active and have been active with the previous carrier and the user since 8/28/18 12:00 AM PT.

ordered, just see the update that it’s dead. didn’t see any mention about gift card, but thought that maybe it doesn’t have to say anything.
What should i do now? cancel the order? let it ship & then return to at least get the amex offer? keep it & then have a fight with google?

Ask a chat rep if you got the gift card offer. If not, I would ask if they can compensate in some other way. If they don't offer any compensation I would cancel.

I used Dan's link, the offer showed throughout the checkout process.
Per the terms, you'll get the gift cards after 75-90 days of activation.

-Does anyone know about whether I can move the phone over to sprint immediately but somehow keep the plan active (and receive the GC)?
-I used a GV number to sign up, can I port a Sprint number once I receive the phone without losing the GC?

Thanks!

Shouldn't matter. Amex offer credits post even if you save the offer after spending as long as it's before the charge posts.

wonder if anyone can help..

I have two amex cards both ending with the same 4 digits.. and and expiration dates just 2 months apart.
The $100 promo was on one of them (the biz card).

When ordering the phone (749 pixel) I put in the card number of the biz card.

Today I noticed the pending charge on my OTHER amex (non biz) which was stored in google payments wallet from a previos purchase.

This is a mistake by google, and they can't seem to figure out how to switch the payment now. they suggested asking amex to switch over the charge. anyone heard of that option? would amex do such a thing? would it qualify for the $100 offer?

Have we come to a conclusion on how to know if the gift card promo was activated on the purchase or not?

My first purchase went thru at 10:04 (EST)  but I canceled that one because I used the wrong CC and the next purchase went thru at 10:18 (EST). Spoke with a rep today and she confirmed that as long as I purchase before 11:59 (PST) I am eligible, but I don’t fully trust her, so I had her send me an email, but it’s still vague.

Hi XXX,

Thank you for contacting Project Fi support.

We have confirmed that your order GS. XXXX XXXX XXXX. To qualify for this promotion, a device must be activated within 15 days of device shipment and remain active for 60 consecutive days within 75 days of device shipment. The device must be activated within the same plan that was used to purchase the device. Activation must be for full service (i.e., activation does not apply to a data-only SIM).

After the terms have been satisfied, the customer will receive an email from Google Fi (around 75 - 90 days after device activation) with instructions on how to obtain a gift card from Tango subject to Tango’s terms and conditions.

Please let me know if you have any additional questions.

Thanks,

Chelsea
Google Fi Support

Question,

I ordered the phone on an existing fi account. I want to keep the ordered phone for a different provider. I'm assuming i don't need to activate the specific phone i ordered.

Do you guys think my 60 days activation requirement already started? i would ask a google fi csr but that is a bit awkward "i'm not using that phone on fi".

Thanks

Seems like you can put a regular SIM in the phone and switch between fi and the SIM without deactivating fi, anyone know if this will mess up the GC offer eligibility?

I emailed them this question and was told no. I'll probably do it, but YMMV. Based on the terms alone I'd be concerned within the first 60 days...

“Hi there,

Thanks again for joining Google Fi!

It looks like you purchased a phone from us on 11/28 during our Travel on Us promotion. Per the last email we sent you, if you are new to Fi, we wanted to remind you that you must port in an existing phone number within 15 days of device shipment to qualify for the travel gift card(s) with Airbnb, Delta Air Lines, Hotels.com and Southwest Airlines. New phone numbers or phone numbers created after August 28, 2018 are not eligible for the promotion. Once you have ported in your number, you will need to satisfy the full terms & conditions to be eligible for the gift card.

If you are on a group plan and if you or your plan members have also purchased phones for the Travel on Us promotion, the same conditions apply to these phones.

If you've already activated your Fi account with a brand new number, please reach out to our support team in order to port over an eligible number to qualify for the travel gift card.”

Seem to be saying that a new number won’t work- I only did this deal as a new phone number, which was also supposedly eligible as per Dan’s post!

Anyone else get this or will calling help?

After 2.5 hours on hold and finally speaking to a "supervisor", I was informed that Google had to respect its policy of "consistency" to anyone that purchased after 7:00 pm pacific time and could only offer me a $100 service credit or let me return the phone with a pre-paid shipping label. I'll be returning it. What a waste of time and poor and misleading customer service.

Just got this!

Thanks for contacting Google Fi support!

I request you to please do not insert the T-Mobile SIM card in your device as it will deactivate the eSIM on your device while switching to physical SIM. If the eSIM gets deactivated then you'll not be eligible for the promo.

I'd suggest you to please wait until you receive the credits on your account. Once you receive the credits, you can switch to your T-Mobile SIM with Google Fi.

I appreciate your understanding.

After all to deliver the phone someone actually signed, so maybe he should ask the same guy to activate it.

You wanna prepay $500?

If he finance the phone that actually a nice idea, in case that it's possible of course

PSA: Make sure to activate phone in the US. Fi cannot be activated overseas.

I chatted with them today rep said it needs to be activated 15 days from device delivery which was 5 days after shipment, terms say within 15 days of device shipment. Anybody looked into this?
Rep told me it’s 15 days from shipment.

Just got this!

Thanks for contacting Google Fi support!

I request you to please do not insert the T-Mobile SIM card in your device as it will deactivate the eSIM on your device while switching to physical SIM. If the eSIM gets deactivated then you'll not be eligible for the promo.

I'd suggest you to please wait until you receive the credits on your account. Once you receive the credits, you can switch to your T-Mobile SIM with Google Fi.

I appreciate your understanding.


...hope this isn't accurate. Ugh.

I was told that all it looks like to them is the phone being off, it's not considered paused or cancelled and it won't effect my promotion eligibility. I got it in writing...

Mind posting?

I was planning on using this phone and keeping it and don't want to wait 3 months.

Thank you for reaching out to Google Fi. I did want to confirm with you that if you utilize the dual sim functionality of the Pixel 3 phone that DOES NOT affect your eligibility of any promos as it relates to active status with Google Fi.

That's not entirely clear.

That reply could be simply talking about using esim+physical sim which are BOTH tied to Fi, not esim w/ Fi & physical sim w/ separate carrier -- which is the case most are curious about.

When rep responded to AJK, he did not seem so sure, and also didn't answer the question that was asked until he was forced to, and sounds like he just guessed. I'm 99 percent it would be fine -especially after the DP that it shows as active- but it's a lot of money to gamble with.

Off topic, but when you go out of the USA, you can dial from Hangouts Dialer app when using the mobile data, and will be charged as if you were calling from the USA, so whatever the regular GV rate is plus the data consumed, which is .6 to 1 MB perminute, so about 1cent per minute in addition to the GV/FI rate. Otherwise, it's at least 20 cents per minute for calls from outside the US.

In addition I have screenshots and an email of the chat.

When I have my Sim active it says Google Fi is not your active carrier however I do not recall it ever having to be my active carrier, all I need to make sure is service is not paused or suspended. I am being billed and my cycle days are going lower so obviously it's active in that sense.

I sort of had this on my main Google account, but it didn't really affect me at all the way they had issues.

Basically, I had fraud on my Google Pay of this main account - someone got in and essentially drained one of my bank accounts by sending a bunch of payments with my debit card (maybe $2k total). I think I reported the fraud to Chase first, who immediately reversed the transactions and started a fraud investigation. I also called Google, and I think they said something along the lines of 'since you reported to your bank, we don't do anything on our end'. Two of the payments were still technically pending, so I canceled them in Google Pay.

Google never could quite explain how someone accessed my Google Pay account, especially since no devices not owned by me were listed as having accessed the account at any time. In the meantime, they basically froze my Google Pay, telling me I'd have to have my bank re-authorize the charges and initiate the fraud/dispute within Google alone if I wanted to reactivate Google Pay. I wasn't using that Google Pay account for anything (though it did mean one less account to do orders from by all the great buying group Google Express deals) so I didn't really care. I happened to have done a Google Fi deal (not the travel one) during this time, but I specifically didn't want to link it to my main account (I wasn't actually keeping the service) so it wasn't a problem.

Eventually, Chase/Google appear to have resolved the fraud thing, and it seems like my main Google Pay account is unfrozen. I can definitely see it being a bigger deal if I used the Google Pay ecosystem with any regularity.

I noticed it a couple of weeks ago. It shows $1,000 pending for each of us.
I don't see it when I go to the link. Where does it show what is pending?

Help! I just got an email from a supervisor that they decided my phone is not eligible anymore, even though a previous representative assured me that it was included. I waited to activate my phone until i got that first confirmation. (I have an email with the proof.)

Can you post the email? What prompted the email?
Title: Re: "Free" Google Pixel 3 and XL with Google Fi
Post by: JuryDuty on January 09, 2019, 01:40:40 PM
Can you post the email? What prompted the email?

The first email:

Hi,

This is Jason from Google Fi with the information you requested. The promotion in question was valid 1/28/18 12:00 AM PT through 11/28/18 11:59 PM PT. Your purchases were time stamped Nov 28, 2018 8:15 PM and Nov 28, 2018 10:03 PM.

Thanks,

Jason

The 2nd email:

Hi,

My name is Lee and I'm a higher level Specialist here with Google Fi. I'm working directly with our Promotions Team to determine your eligibility for our "Travel on Fi with Any Device Purchase " promotion that was ongoing from 11/28/18 12:00 AM PT - 11/28/18 6:59 PM PT.
   
After thoroughly reviewing your account, we only can confirm that one of your orders  (-----------) was purchased within the promotion time-frame.

Under our investigation, order ------------- was purchased at 8:03 PM PT on 11/28/18. Unfortunately the promotion ended early at 6:59 PT PT due to the limited amount of vouchers available.

Please know that to monitor your Google Fi Launch promotion status in the future, you can refer to the Special Promotions tab within your account. This can also be accessed through g.co/fi/nov28promos.

If you have any questions, you can always reach us by replying directly to this email.

Thanks,

Lee

So basically I bought one for myself, sent an invite to my wife within the time limit but purchased hers out of the time limit. Even though Dan had already reported it as expired, when i bought it through my link, it said the promo was still valid. Before activating it, I called to confirm that it was eligible, and Jason confirmed it. Later, when this new link went up, it didnt say that my wife's was eligible. I called to confirm thatbit was eligible, and they basically said they thought it was but they're escalating the case. Two weeks later I got the second email.

The latest update:

Hi,

Thank you for your reply.

We deeply apologize for the miscommunication from support. Unfortunately we are unable to make any exceptions to the promotion due to our current terms.

For the misinformation, I can credit your Fi account with a one-time service credit of $50.00 for the inconvenience.

As stated in the previous email, if all terms are successfully met, your order -------------- should fall under the original promotion.

Please feel free to reply directly to this email if you have any promotional related questions.

Thanks,

Lee

Btw, is anyone else having call quality issues with these phones? Both DW and I have had issues since day 1. Basically one issue is that it almost always takes a good 5-8 seconds for the other side to be able to hear our voices. So half the people hang up before that. There are usually more issues when we dial out. Then there is more intermittent issues with our voices cutting in and out that sounds like it may have to do with aggressive noice canceling or something.

Fi support is kind of useless.

My account doesn't show the travel credit pending when i click on the link provided earlier in this thread (though i've been assured more than once by their useless support desk that i do qualify), but at the same time, for the past three billings my bill has been $0 and it says "free month of fi" on the bill.  I'm wondering if somehow i got the wrong type of credit, so want to know how the account date looks for somebody that got the $200 credit.

Right, but if the folks who put other SIMs in prior to 60 did NOT receive GC, then it becomes clear that Fi views that as not active, which means I won't put MINE in until after 120.

Title: Re: "Free" Google Pixel 3 and XL with Google Fi
Post by: Dan on February 22, 2019, 09:56:49 AM
Not at all. If they got the GC then I'd switch my SIM now.

I didn't activate until 12/18.
Title: Re: "Free" Google Pixel 3 and XL with Google Fi
Post by: AJK on February 22, 2019, 09:59:15 AM
The other way to look at it is that even if the 3P SIM folks did it prior to 60 days and don't receive GCs, that just means the Google Fi viewed that their service was not "active" for 60 days, and therefore they didn't comply with promo terms, even if they continued paying the bill for 120 days (i.e. not "cancelled").

Conversely, if they DID insert 3P SIM and received, then Google Fi viewed that their service as active anyway.

This reading, which may be the better one, would not require one who hasn't yet inserted a 3P SIM to wait until 120 days to insert.

Incorrect.  Or at least the way in which your post suggests, which contradicts what the T&C imply.  If you meet terms, they send GC.  If you subsequently break terms, they'll charge you.  If you never meet terms to begin with, why would they send GC? Only to then charge you...?

Title: Re: &quot;Free&quot; Google Pixel 3 and XL with Google Fi
Post by: Eliyohu on February 24, 2019, 10:13:51 AM



That just makes no sense.



The other way to look at it is that even if the 3P SIM folks did it prior to 60 days and don't receive GCs, that just means the Google Fi viewed that their service was not "active" for 60 days, and therefore they didn't comply with promo terms, even if they continued paying the bill for 120 days (i.e. not "cancelled").

Conversely, if they DID insert 3P SIM and received, then Google Fi viewed that their service as active anyway.

This reading, which may be the better one, would not require one who hasn't yet inserted a 3P SIM to wait until 120 days


(https://monosnap.com/image/7FDIbqN9aMKnnuoj1ESZb4DwQSSiTV.png)

The way it seems to me is that from 0-60 days it needs to be consecutive service
(At least that Any paused days wouldn't count towards 60 days)
From 60-120 paused days do count, but can't be longer then 7 days...

I am of the opinion that simply PAYING  for the service (i.e. not discontinuing) thru 120 days is sufficient. See posts above.

You don't think my opinion wrote the T&C? Smartest kid in the class, you were, huh?

Either way, I'm not guaranteeing my interpretation, nor suggesting you follow my lead.  But I also don't see the smartest kid in the class offering an alternative interpretation either.

One can always be more risk averse and more conservative, but that comes with it's own costs (not being able to use your new phone).  But just like with investing, being super conservative and keeping all your investments in cash leads to a loss of approx 2-3% of purchasing power every year.

Thank you for writing in.

I agree that you have activated the device on Dec 5th 2018 and have completed the 90 day time period. However, it shows that the device is activated on 2nd January 2019 from our end and that might be due to system glitch.

However, to ensure you are eligible to receive the gift cards, I have also checked with my specialist team about the same. You can expect to receive the gift cards after 3rd April 2019. We apologize for any inconvenience caused due to the delay.

Did you decide? Trying to make a decision.
Basically your selling your pixel for $550
Which is better than you can get for a used, but depending how much the S10 will sell for as brand new...

I didn't disagree. I just took the opportunity to point out that most tech websites, especially blogs, write "reviews" that are totally subjective and cannot back it up with numbers. As opposed to sites like Anandtech, especially in the days of Brian Klug and Anand himself.

Anyone who uses dual SIM, and not concerned about invalidating the promotion, are you using Sprint? Im wondering if it's different being they use both the imei and sim

How is anyone doing it with sprint? I’ve had issuez

They claim to me that they can’t activate a phone on both networks at once since the IMEI ID cannot be registered with Fi and Sprint at same time. Only way around is to switch Fi plan to another phone every time you want to switch to sprint plan. Or at least that’s what I was told.

This is in regards to the Sprint promo but relevant regardless

C/p from SD

4: My phone is/was on Project Fi (Google). What can i do to make it work on this promo?

AFTER removing your phone from Fi (port out or cancel), you have to call them and ask them to deregister the phone or rather make it available for Sprint postpaid use. Because Sprint is part of the Fi network it looks like the phone is already active on there. Takes 24-48 hours to happen once you open a ticket by calling 1-844-TALK-2FI.
Note: When I called, the CSR did not understand when I asked about "deregistering" my phone. Probably the most efficient way to go about this is to explain that you are trying to switch to Sprint and need to be removed from the Project fi list or whatever. My case had to be elevated to a higher up CSR/tech, and after a brief hold, I was told it was taken care of. I was then able to pass go on the sprint IMEI checker.

When I tried that I was told:
1. Need another phone to register with my Fi plan in my current phones place.
2. Will need to do this every time I switch.

Not sure if the above is true, I’ll try harder when my 120 days are up.

If your really eligible then you shouldn't need to do this.. if it's a gv number, you can chat with gv support and they can tell you when the number was created. Or possibly you have a missed call or text somewhere in the account..

Number was transferred to my primary email address from eligible account, and then to Google fi. They insist they need a screenshot from the account showing the number active there prior to 8 28, and since the number is out, I have no way of doing so.
The welcome to Google fi voicemail does not show to which number it was dialed.

I chatted with them and the guy tried to claim that my hundred twenty days were up approximately April 11th.. which I told him that 120 days from 12/7 is actually 4/5.. to which he agreed. But he refused to pause and deregister my device (to use on Sprint) .. because he wanted me to wait until the promotions tab updates..

I cancelled my service already and sold my device. Gave an extra 2 days buffer. Site hasn’t yet updated but it’s been slow in updating the entire time.

sold gift card on DDF = 696

total profit - $229.13 plus 4 months of service!
