The discount bonanza that is Black Friday is just days away, but the tech deals are already coming in thick and fast. Now it’s Google turn to embrace the season of discounts with an enticing promotion for its experimental mobile network, Project Fi.
Starting from today until December 17th, the Project Fi referral program will now gift subscribers with prizes on top of the usual $20 referral credit. Dubbed the “Fi it Forward” challenge, Fi users will receive a free Chromecast for two qualifying referrals.
Register seven or more referrals and you’ll win Google’s grand prize: a brand new Android One Moto X4. The Lenovo-made device is the cheapest and most recent addition to the Fi-ready ranks and is a great mid-tier phone that’s bolstered by its stock-like Android One software experience and impressive design. Plus it’s free!
To get involved in the referral challenge, Fi users simply have to grab a unique link within the Project Fi app or web portal and share it with family and friends via text, social media, email, or any other way they like.
There’s even a leaderboard for comparing your tally to other Fi subscribers across the US. The current leader is on twelve referrals at time of writing, so you might have some catching up to do if you want to win. You can see the top ten and get started with your own referral links here.
To sweeten the deal, Google will also donate $50,000 to the Information Technology Disaster Resource Center (ITDRC) as part of the campaign. There are no additional requirements for this though. As Google puts it: “You’re already helping support this gift just by being part of Project Fi.”
This isn’t the first time the search giant has leveraged its MVNO network to support disaster relief. During Hurricane Harvey earlier this year, the search giant applied a $20 account credit for each customer living in the impacted areas.
