The Australian Google Store is having a flash sale. If you want a Google Home or Mini, Chromecast or Pixel Buds act quickly. Alas, the Pixel 2/XL is not yet on sale!
These discounts should also be at approved retailers that in some cases even undercut the official store prices.
- Google Home Mini – $59 – normally $79
- Google Home – $129 – normally $199
- Chromecast Ultra – $89 – normally $99
- Chromecast 2 – $49 – normally $59
- Pixel Buds – $209 – normally $249
Make sure you select the Australian store if your location services are turned off. All include free delivery.
GadgetGuy’s take – Google Store sales are few and far between
Google, like every hardware maker (GadgetGuy’s article here) needs to clear stocks to make way for new models.
Alas the excellent Pixel 2 and XL (GadgetGuy review here) are not on sale. They are in the U.S. store, so it means the Google Pixel 3 is not far away.
I use the Google Home and Mini every day. Its “OK Google set the alarm”. Then “OK Google turn the bloody alarm off”. The I make small take about the weather and ask it to tell me a joke.
Q: “What’s a magical dog called?”
A: “Labramagadoodle” (OK next time I will specify a non-dad joke).
The Home and Home Mini are respectable pieces of kit – see our review here.
