voted cold! this deal has been posted a million times already.we get it, …voted cold! this deal has been posted a million times already.we get it, google have reduced the prices of their smart speakers!i will vote all google home deals as cold from now on and urge everyone else to do the same.


Listen here jamhole - I don't come on here to ruin anyone's day so kick it with this attitude. Do you think I seen all these deals you mentioned and then decided to put it up again? I came on today (an occasional viewer) to see one of the top deals very similar to mine, except it was completely sold out, and so I posted this so people that still wanted the same prices could buy from a reliable retailer. Vote cold if you wish but spare me the attitude.

This is a great price. The community here sucks..... People can't judge one deal on it's own merit. Just because 1 deal has been found that is the same price and it's very hot, This can't be hot. I might not want to get from the other retailer but because people vote it cold I might not see it even though it's the same price.

Sorry but I'm with the other grumpy old gits.. This deal has been posted several times in the last 48 hours, my phone has been going mental with alerts because of it..

A simple search shows that this deal exists elsewhere, and the rules of the forum state you should search for the deal before posting.. so being an occasional visitor doesn't really excuse this..

It makes far more sense to post in the other thread that it's available at other retailers (which is what I do) the OP can then add to their description to save pointless duplicates..

I'm not voting either way.. but just think these deals are a waste of time (much like this post) and everyone just needs to accept that it will continue to happen..

Same price in a few places

£1 More expensive than most places

And that same price is a deal, I don't get it?!

If nothing else, a deal going hot which has already been posted elsewhere makes the community a lot harder to manage, and gives people a lot more duplicate deals (in an already busy site) to trawl through.

Well intentioned as OP might be, it's simply good management to restrict repetitive deals.

Same way I can vote because I also don’t want this retailer.... so a lot factors go into a deal been voted hot or cold

It works with Spotify possiblity others as

Hot, same price as other deals but buying direct from Google means if they offer a trade-in option going forward you'll be entitled without question.

Constructive criticism I can accept - we do need that feature and in the future maybe I'll just post a comment in another thread. Thanks!

Yet the Tesco 3 for 2 deal can stay even though it was posted before. It was posted as a deal but moved to misc by a mod , as no proof was given I presume, but proof was given in the comments.

that, sir, is a HUGE "if"
"IF" they do, it will be a percentage off full price for returning your old hardware - which will be equivalent in savings to a sale price

just buy it from the store you can do easy returns with in store (e.g. currys, maplin)

yes, thats exactly what i think you did. either that, or you didn't bother to spend 5 seconds to see that this deal has already been posted a million times.
and the fact that this deal is cold (look at freezing cold score) shows i am vindicated.
You sound like a typical democracy hating remoaner!!

you don't need any subscription service, but if you subscribe to google play music, spotify, etc it can play that too

I don't pay extra - I have my google play music as my default music on the google home app. I uploaded 20,000 of my own music and it plays my playlists, artists, shuffles, etc. It also plays radio off tunein radio for free.

Don’t think +6 can be called freezing cold.

Well who pulled your little chain. Happy to vote you cold.

I have purchased the Google home mini. The speaker is loud enough for my needs.

What does this actually do?

Seems like Google and Amazon have conned millions into thinking that we all need some mediocre speaker with in-built pointless voice assistant, while they sit there laughing at millions of tax-free profit filling their coffers.

You can't use credit earned from Google rewards.

It's a fantastic little gadget; I have Chromecasts and Philips Hue in my house, I can voice activate my lights, TV's music from each speaker & amplifier and have music play seamlessly on multiple speakers much cheaper than buying a Sonos system. I am going to buy some plugs so that I can switch other things on and off via voice. I personally like the google system more than amazon, I think it's a smoother system. I am forever losing my phone in the house, I ask google to find my phone and it starts to ring. I'm about to get an Android TV and looking forward how I'm going to get them interacting together

Do does this not have apps built in?
I just thought that it could run things like Spotify...etc

I'm not sure if there built in or just accessible. When you link it up through the app on your phone, you can choose Spotify as your default music app or leave it as google play music.
