Thought i'll post this up anywho, but I'm not sure how long they're going to honour it as I'm very sure they're aware of this error.

The link I posted is of the search page on Currys that show that you get "2 of Google home minis" with a purchase of a Google pixel in the description. You won't see this "2 of" on the product pages themselves.

All the way through check out it says theres 3 items in the bundle. (1 pixel and home bundle and one free mini).

Sceptical, I've gone and ordered it anyway (actually ordered 2 as a present for someone else too)

Receipt came in email after ordering and it only really shown 2 minis and 2 pixels itemised.

Today, received delivery. It was actually honoured!
See proof. 4 homes with my 2 Pixel 2 xls! 2 each!

well done mate - no way they will honour it once the HUKD lot and eBay scalpers get started

EE are giving a free Google Home aren't they? A bit annoyed I only got a Mini with my order now!

This is a good deal for someone wanting both of these, but I don't think it's so good that it's worth a scalper's time. Just checked Ebay out of curiosity and it doesn't look like you could make much profit selling the three items.

Was hesitant of putting this on HUKD for that reason, but I'm very sure they're aware of this but still delivered on it.
I say that, cause I actually queried them couple times on this beforehand...

As mentioned before the actual product page doesn't show it. the search results do, and the baskets too. But the receipt doesn't.. being honest, its a wildcard. But if you're looking for a pixel 2 anyway. Worth getting them bingo cards ready...
Good deal, crap phone
the markup on a £800 phone and production cost of those minis - £20? leads me to think even if it's an error it's not a good deal
Pixel 2 or Pixel 2 XL - using & means you get both phones.

If you started to look at mark up and production costs of everything you wanted to buy you would never actually buy anything.

Ah yeah, prob need to fix my title. It was meant to mean, "seems like deal applied for either pixel 2's".

no because there are better value phones available.
Still expensive for these phones inspite of giving 2 mini s.
The silly price of these phone means they need sweeteners to get people to buy, I suspect.
How is this an error ? It clearly states 2 free google minis
Not showing 2 for me, just 1 mentioned and then none in basket. This is for sim free?
Obviously a 'glitch'



OK I'll get my coat,

Such as? I’d be interested to know of a phone with a better camera than this that runs pure android and will be supported with at least a few os updates not to mention unlimited uploads of full res photos and videos to google photos. Please point me in the direction of the cheaper phone that has all that.

Not really a silly price for what you get when compared to the market.

While a good device, it does not run pure stock Android, that was scrapped from the start of the Pixel Range. It runs a skinned version of Android which is very close to stock.

Are you sure? Every review states it runs stock android. Especially being Google’s own device I would have thought they would have put pure android on it??

Yeah, they started running a slightly skinned version since the inception of the Pixel Range. With the Pixel devices in the settings menu you get to see the tab for 24 hour support, you get a different camera app, own skins, Pixel Launcher etc. While these features are "exclusive"to the Pixel range (which means it's a skinned version) if you see another device on stock they do not have these, yes are means to sideload some of these "features" but does mean now that it isn't true stock.

Plenty of articles around the net, too many to list all sources but one example below.

Not sure why this is cold but it was apt time as my Nexus 5X hit the dreaded boot loop. I just picked up the same deal yesterday and had the Pixel and two Google Mini's delivered. Have some heat from me!!

I'm loving the Pixel 2xl... Also I don't think people realise you're only meant to get 1 google home mini... ever... anywhere. Confirmed to be an error over the phone too.

Website now shows only 1 fixing the error. I've now expired this.
