The ludicrous Google Pay 'death sentence' can lock your Fi account and phone number

Google has gone from a plucky search engine startup to a sprawling international corporation with its tendrils reaching into many aspects of our lives. Sometimes, that provides unique advantages.

Get a combined $400 off a Pixel 3 or 3 XL via Project Fi, plus discounts on other phones

Google has dropped the price on its latest pair of flagships via the Google Store between $150-200, but Project Fi is set to one-up that offer. From now until next Tuesday (11/27) you can get a cumulative $400 off either the Pixel 3 or Pixel 3 XL — $200 in an up-front discount, and $200 in the form of bill credits.

Don't like bill credits? You can also get an up-front $400 off the LG V35 ThinQ or G7 ThinQ with activation. Love bill credits? You can get $350 towards service if you get the older Pixel 2 XL. And if you just want something cheap, the Moto G6 and Moto X4 are $150-250 off (with activation).

Buy one Pixel 3 or 3 XL, get another free-ish (via $799 service credit) on Project Fi

The latest Pixel phones are a little too spendy for some, but Google's Project Fi service has a deal that might make them more palatable. If you purchase two 2018 Pixels on a group plan, you can get a $799 service credit. That's sort of a "buy one, get one" deal as the base model Pixel 3 costs $799. You do still have to buy the phones, though.
