If you want to get a discount on a brand new Google Pixel 3 or Pixel 3 XL, then Monday, April 22, is the best time to do so. 

The mobile search giant cut the smartphones' prices in half for its fourth anniversary of Project Fi.

In case you didn't know, Fi is Google's cellular coverage plan.

The most affordable phone, the 64GB Pixel 3, is discounted from $799 to $399 or $16.62 a month. The 128GB version is $449, compared to the regular $899 price.

Cheap phones: $1,000 for a smartphone? How about $100?

The Google Pixel 3 XL costs $449 for 64GB and $499 for 128GB. The XL smartphones would otherwise cost $899 and $999. The Pixel 3 XL has a larger screen size and better battery life than the standard Pixel 3.

The smartphone deal is only available for new and existing Google Fi customers, and the offering runs until midnight.

It's applied automatically when you check out. 

For even more savings, you can combine the deal with a device trade-in offer by giving up your current smartphone, Google says.

No matter what phone you have, the Google Fi plan only charges you for the data you use, and when you hit a certain amount of data, it’s free for the rest of the month. 

For $20 a month, you get unlimited domestic talk and text, unlimited international texts, and access to cellular coverage in more than countries.
