If you purchase a Google Fi phone today, November 28, 2018, you’re eligible to earn travel gift cards equal to the purchase price of the device (up to $999 for the most expensive model)! This deal works for new or existing Google Fi customers.
Or, if you currently don’t have Google Fi and want to sign-up without purchasing a new phone, you’re eligible for a $200 Google Fi statement credit for switching to the service and bringing your own phone over.
This is a stellar deal and the gift cards are useful – you can choose between Delta, Southwest, Airbnb, or Hotels.com. And if you’ve got the Southwest Companion Pass (or are earning one soon because of the limited-time increased bonus on all of the Southwest cards), you can get close to double the value from your gift cards, making this an extra special deal.
I’ve never used Google Fi, so I can’t speak to how good or bad the service is. But this deal looks like it’s too good to pass up! If you’ve used the service before let me know in the comments how it’s been for you.

Amazing Google Fi Phone Deal for Southwest (and Other) Gift Cards
This deal only lasts until 11:59 PM Pacific Time today, November 28, 2018. So act fast!
If you’re buying a new Google Fi phone the deal is simple: Buy a new phone and receive travel gift cards equal to the price you paid (excluding taxes). You can purchase those phones here.
My guess is you’ll need to pay the full price up front to qualify. I don’t think the monthly payment option will earn you the bonus.
To qualify for the gift cards, your device must be activated within 15 days of shipment and remain activated for 60 of the first 75 days following shipment. The big catch is if you cancel your service within 120 days of activation or have it paused for more than 7 days, the value of the gift cards will be charged to your Google Payments account. So pay attention to the timing if you decide to pause or cancel your service!
New Google Fi Customer Can Get $200 in Credits
If you’ve got a phone you want to bring over to Google Fi, you’re eligible for $200 in statement credits. This offer is for new Google Fi customers only and it has the same expiration date and time (November 28, 2018, at 11:59 pm).
You’ll need to keep the service active for 30 days to earn the credit. And you’ll need to port over a phone number that is currently active with another carrier or has been active since August 28, 2018. The credit will be applied 45 to 60 days after activation. These credits can only be applied toward costs such as data, calls, texts, and device protection. They aren’t valid for purchasing or financing other devices.
You can read all of the terms for both promotions here. Both of these deals are limited to one per person and require full-service plans (don’t apply to data-only SIMs).
If you take advantage of this deal, I’d love to hear how it works out for you!
