If you happen to be a Project Fi subscriber traveling through the San Jose International Airport go check out the newly planted Project Fi vending machine complete with all sorts of travel related goodies.
Join us after the break for the details.
As you may or may not know, Project Fi is a virtual carrier created by Google that piggybacks on Sprint, T-Mobile and US Cellular’s networks and also uses your own WiFi as well as public WiFi networks for data and calls. Project Fi only works with Google’s Pixel and Nexus phones and what really sets it apart is the “pay only for the data you use” feature (if you pay up front for 3 GB of data and only use 2 GB at the end of the month, you will only be charged for the 2 GB).

The items in the vending machine are free (again, only for Project Fi subscribers) and include things like charging cables, socks, sleep masks, etc. To take advantage of this, on your Project Fi phone you need to dial *#*#FLYWITHFI#*#* (or *#*#359948434#*#*) and that will generate a QR code you hold up to the vending machine and then you’ll be able to choose your goodie. Again, all the items are free, but you can only redeem one every 24 hours.
If you’re lucky enough to be at the San Jose airport and use the vending machine let us know in the comments how it all went and which goodie you chose!
