(EXPIRED) Update: Save $100 on advertising, not a Fi phone

Update: Reader Mdk reports that while the advertising offer was triggered in the winter deal, it was NOT triggered on a subsequent purchase a few months ago. Marking this deal dead as such. There’s a new Amex Offer that recently came available on some business cards for advertising purchases: Spend $400 or more on advertising, get $100 back. That’s obviously a nice offer if you’ll be spending money on advertising. However, if you aren’t spending on advertising, it…

(EXPIRED) 50% off Pixel 3 or Pixel 3 XL with Google Fi 4/22 only

Google Fi is offering a discount of 50% off retail price on Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL phones today (4/22/19 only). That’s a pretty awesome deal if you’re looking to get on Fi or if you’re just looking to buy a Pixel (which could be used on the other major US carriers after activation). It’s not as good as the insane deal last fall, but if you missed that and/or are just looking for…

Google Fi gift cards better than expected

Google Fi has begun sending out emails with travel gift cards from the incredible November promotion (see: [DEAD] WOW! Get a Google Fi phone & travel gift card worth the phone’s price). I received my gift card email earlier this evening, and it turned out to be even better than expected: not only can you mix and match amounts with all of the included partners, but you do not need to redeem all of the…

My full retreat back to iPhone-land

That’s it then.  My Pixel 3 is gathering dust already.  I gave it a try, but ultimately decided to return to my trusty old iPhone. The reason? I missed some key iPhone features, and I was frustrated with a few Pixel 3 quirks. Pixel 3: “Turn left onto North Main Street.” Me: “OK Google. Stop Navigation.” Pixel 3: “Continue straight 1 mile.” Me: “OK GOOGLE. STOP NAVIGATION” Pixel 3: “Turn left onto…” The dialog above…

Tiffany’s Google Fi warning. Time to retreat?

Earlier today, Tiffany at One Mile at a Time posted “Why I Can No Longer Recommend Google Fi.”  In that post, Tiffany described a number of issues with her latest Pixel phone and with Fi support.  None of those issues were deal breakers though.  The deal breaking humongous issue was with Google Pay.  And it made me nervous… When Google ran a one day spectacular sale on new Fi phones back in November, Tiffany’s husband…

iPhone withdrawal symptoms when switching to Android Pixel

Remember the incredible phone deal offered by Google Fi a couple of weeks ago? The deal was intended to last until midnight pacific time, but it died early. Apparently Google doesn’t have the ability to predict behavior nor the finances to cover a bad bet (I jest). You can read about the expired deal here: WOW! Get a Google Fi phone & travel gift card worth the phone’s price. The deal was especially good for…

Porting from T-Mobile to Google Fi? Set your PIN in 2 minutes or less

If you recently got in on the incredible Google Fi deal (See: [DEAD] WOW! Get a Google Fi phone & travel gift card worth the phone’s price), you will need to port a number if you’re a new Google Fi customer. Porting a number requires your account PIN from your previous carrier, which is different from the password you use to login to your account on the website or carrier phone app. It can sometimes…

Despite a deal, not everyone should switch to Fi. Here’s why.

Yesterday, Google Fi ran an incredible deal that ended up being pulled early (See: WOW! Get a Google Fi phone & travel gift card worth the phone’s price). That deal was so good that it caused me to make an unbelievable impulse purchase: a Google Pixel 3 XL for $999. Yet despite buying a crazy phone and Greg’s happiness with the service, I don’t actually intend to switch to Google Fi. Here’s why I bought the phone,…
