Project Fi wants you... and at least two other friends to start using their service. In return, they will be giving you a referral credit that varies, depending on the number of people you bring into the alternate wireless carrier.
Even though Project Fi's Referral Program is not entirely new, its challenges are. As announced recently, Google launched the new Project Fi Referral Challenge, where you can win three different types of prizes.
Here is more detail about the challenge:
First Challenge: When you get two friends to sign up with Project Fi, you can get a $20 credit for Google Play.
Second Challenge: Once you refer five people, you will be getting a "Fi weekender bag." Right now, no one knows for sure what this bag includes.
Third Challenge: As for the last challenge, Project Fi will be awarding whoever gets to the top three list of the most referred people a trip to the Google HQ in California.
Prior to today's news, Project Fi simply offered a $20 bill credit to a customer who refers a friend and signs up with service. In addition to this, Project Fi ran a referral program that required a referred individual to keep their Project Fi service for a minimum of 30 days and to make an advance payment for the second month of service.
Google has not specified its terms for the new referral program but maybe the same rules imply. We'll have to check with Google for more details.
Also, Google has limited the amount of referrals and credits you can get. If you join, you can only net up to $2000 worth of credits and referrals of up to 100.
Google's Fi Referral Challenge starts from July 25th and runs through September 25th. They also have a leaderboard that updates every 2 hours with the number of referrals each individual has made.
