Hi everyone,

We’re very excited to announce that Fi SIM cards are now available for purchase in 500+ Best Buy stores across the US.
These SIMs will be sold separately from devices and are priced at $9.99. When you purchase a Fi SIM from participating Best Buy stores, you are eligible to receive a $10 service credit upon SIM activation on Fi (with a limit of one qualifying activation per person and a limit of six qualifying activations per group plan). Note: While Best Buy employees will not be able to assist in Fi SIM activations, it’s easy to do on your own by following the steps listed here.

FAQs

1. Are only new Fi members eligible for the $10 service credit?
Any user (current or new to Fi) can buy a Fi SIM and get the $10 service credit if it’s activated on Fi (with a limit of one qualifying activation per person and a limit of 6 qualifying activations per group plan, and with no port-in requirement).

2. I purchased a Fi SIM from Best Buy, how do I receive the $10 in service credits?
Within one week after activation, you will receive an email confirmation of the service credit and will see the $10 credit on your subsequent bill(s).

3. I purchased a Fi SIM from Best Buy, but I’m having difficulty activating it.
Try following the steps listed here. Still having issues? Let us know below or contact Fi support.

4. Which Best Buy stores are carrying the Fi SIMs?
We recommend contacting your nearest Best Buy store for product availability.

5. What types of SIMs will be available for purchase?
Google Fi Talk & Text SIMs will be available. Note: Data-only SIMs will not be available.

Does this mean possibly in the future that fi phones could be purchased in store?

@TheOmegaOnion   Yes-  there are only two kinds of sims available from Fi:  full sims and data-only sims .  Only the full sim is available at Best Buy, and it gives you talk and text, and data.

5. What types of SIMs will be available for purchase?
Google Fi Talk & Text SIMs will be available. Note: Data-only SIMs will not be available.

@Leticio  they are not selling Data-only Fi sims at Best Buy, only the full sims.  And to activate them, all the normal rules apply:  you need to be a US resident with a US mailing address, a US Google account and a US method of payment in Google Pay.
