Possible Free Google Home Mini. Google Pop up stores in London - No guaranteed. You place an order and get either a doughnut or a Google home mini.

LocalFound 22nd Mar
The pop-ups are happening in two locations for a very limited time. You can either head to Westfield Stratford City from Thursday 22nd – 25th March or the Angel Central Shopping Centre from Thursday 29th March – Sunday 1st April.

Plus, for one day only, there will also be a pop up bike tour in two locations: the John Lewis store on Oxford Street on Saturday 24th March between 10am - 6pm, or the John Lewis store in Westfield White City on Sunday 25th March between 12pm - 6pm.

No guaranteed. You place an order and get either a doughnut or a Google home mini. An odd concept but a bit of fun

Misleading title as it's more like a competition
Not free

So do i ‘pay’ the price of a Google mini to get a donut?
Imagine waiting in line
Everyone infront you gets a Google Home Mini, and you get doughnut
I'll try my luck!
What does place an order mean, do I order a donut?

Yup
It actually says you get a Google Home Mini or 2 doughnuts for free. The doughnuts cost min. £4 each from Doughnut Time.

No. It's free
If anyone can please share the location inside. That shopping centre is huge.

So far no-one in FB has done it.


You can find the pop-up shop at Chestnut Plaza. (from the Google UK twitter)

Well, yesterday I ordered a Google Home Mini and today I got one for free. After 40 minutes of queue at peak hour after work. 33494375-zCwVZ.jpg
How does it work

How does it work


The doughnut - open mouth, bite it.

Google Mini - Open mouth, don't bite.
I will give my honest opinion of how I think it worked:

You stay in a queue (which yesterday at 17.30 turned out to be 40 minutes long, after 18.00 people were not allowed to queue - and take into account this was not a weekend).

You are given a menu card with some questions to test the device, either fun questions or others to showcase the functionality of the device. You choose one of them, and the person in the Donut Booth asks you which question you chose. The person writes down your answer. You then get one gift box.

The gift box is a Google Home Mini or a doughnut.

After receiving the gift you are enquired by one person who makes a short survey (how was the experience, would you buy one, did you have one already), and you are given a small map showing the shops inside the shopping centre selling the device.

Now, my opinion: I think that the person inside the truck was choosing by hand either to give the Google Home to you or not, so either be excited or fake that you are really excited to win, be polite to her/him, and they will give it. This is how I think it was like yesterday, the people most excited in the queue (teenagers mostly) got the device and were shouting afterwards.

Cheers for the heads up - dates in the original post confused me.

Too hungover to head out anyway!!!
Thanks OP. I went to Westfield Stratford this morning and got a Home Mini. I did get there at 10am when the doughnut truck opened, it only took about 15 minutes to get to the front of the queue.

In Angel yesterday (Friday) at 12, the queue was just too long, all the way to the street, I came back at 4pm and was in the queue for about 30-40minutes (in the rain, they have umbrellas). They said 1 in 3 is a Google Home Mini and that it's completely random, the boxes look identical so I tend to believe them. They handed out hot chocolate and mini donuts twice when I was in the queue, so even if you don't get a Home Mini, it's not too bad. Good luck!
