Deal: Purchase certain smart home gear at Best Buy and get Google Home Mini for free

Best Buy wants you to transition your home into a smart home with its latest set of deals. Purchasing any item or item(s) the retailer has marked as “smart” will get you another smart device for free. The free smart device is a smart speaker in that of the Google Home Mini and will act as the hub of which connects your smart home gear together.

The last few years have seen the growth of smart home products. Everything from smart speakers to smart appliances can be found at Best Buy to give you more control over the devices in your home. There is a strange deal being run exclusively by Best Buy, who seems to have partnered with Google to give out Home Mini speakers free or with a discount to those who purchase various smart home products.

Some of the products eligible for the deal include the third generation Nest smart thermostat, the Nest Thermostat E, Philips Hue White Ambiance A19 LED Smart light bulbs, and Philips Hue Starter Kit. The Google Home Max speaker is also $49 off, which is enough to cover the price of Google Home Mini.

More affordable goods will allow users to save on a Google Home Mini rather than receive it free with a purchase. For example, shoppers can save $25 on Google Home and Home Mini, $20 on two Google Home Mini speakers, or $10 on Chromecast and Home Mini. Keep in mind that the standard retail price of Google Home Mini is $49, so these deals are pretty good. Buyers can take advantage of any of these deals while time and supply last. All Home Mini units will be of the Chalk color.

With the power of the Google Assistant, the boundaries are limitless as to what you can do over voice. With new abilities for Home like support of Bluetooth speakers, as well as upcoming assistant features, the speaker continues to improve over time and with use. Google is really step up for with what Google Home can do and while we’ve seen a few deals with Home Mini, this one is unique because it allows you to buy products from other companies and still save on the speaker. All is part of Google’s attempt to reach as many consumers as possible and get people involved in the Google smart ecosystem rather than that of competing brands. The deals are not limited to only Google products and you can check them out at the link in brackets below or in Best Buy stores.
