All Google Home Discounts, Offers and Sale - April 2018
It was pretty clear from the outset, you claim directly from Nokia by following the link provided.
How do you claim this Google home mini? after buying from carphone wearhouse contact nokia? or it will be send with phone??same order? im confused?
mrkhal1l: I'm keeping a close eye on Nokia with regards to their software support. I love the fact they stick to stock android. But I'm keen to see how well they keep up their support. If they continue to provide speedy updates for all their phones up to 2 android versions I'd be shellshocked. For now tho, happy with my Redmi Note 4 ( I miss you stock android :'( ) The Nokia 6 2018 is on the Android One Program so this is guaranteed at least 2 years worth of OS updates and a little longer on security updates.
Does it? The picture up top looks like a five year old design now?
I was waiting for this to come out, my nexus 5x couldn't last any longer and went for the Nokia 8. Very pleased with it, though the 6 looks like a nicer phone (more modern)
Got it thanks!
It's a good deal, just a shame the £99.99 for the same deal that was on a couple of weeks ago is no longer still going
I've reported it in the link below, and apparently it's not supposed to happen so they are investigating Deezer ticket
I've reported it here, and apparently it's not supposed to happen so they are investigating Deezer ticket
Thanks saltyzip. My 4 month trial of google music runs out next month. Good to know about the Deezer issue. Thanks. (y)
I'm not convinced at the moment I have an issue playing Deezer via Google home, in that it auto cuts out after 2 hours of play.
Is anyone else getting the deezer music stopping on Google Home after 2 hours? When saying ok Google play music it should play continuously..
Fair enough! OP should definitely add that detail
look at the advert and the product codes. type them in the search on the currys website https://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/smart-tech/smart-tech/smart-home/philips-hue-bridge-2-0-10138722-pdt.html#srcid=11026 https://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/smart-tech/smart-tech/smart-home/philips-hue-colour-wireless-bulb-e27-10152878-pdt.html#srcid=11026 https://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/smart-tech/smart-tech/smart-home/google-home-mini-chalk-10171098-pdt.html#srcid=11026 https://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/smart-tech/smart-tech/smart-home/philips-hue-white-colour-ambience-wireless-bulb-b22-10159490-pdt.html#srcid=11026
How do you know these are colour? In the photo the colour bulbs are shown as a different offer at £159
Thats white only though....
https://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/smart-tech/smart-tech/smart-home/philips-hue-white-colour-ambience-wireless-bulb-b22-10159490-pdt.html Appears to be colour. "Save £60 when you purchase two Philips Hue B22 bulbs with a Philips Hue Bridge and Google Home Mini"
It was oos at my store So I made an order online on friday to collect on monday But its still processing for the bulbs and hue bridge Does anyone experience the same issue?
Yes, I reserved them Friday night. I should have been clearer in my post, apologies. I had to show the emails in store to help the staff in both stores but was easy enough
Another advantage of not needing to use light switch's is that it reduces your cleaning (y)
Did u reserve them before you went to the store?
Many thanks op for this, much appreciated. Managed to pick myself up two full sets, sadly from different Argos stores. The self service price wasn't discounted but in both stores, the sales assistant told me, I'd pay the reserved price, not the instore price. I even watched one of them over-ride the prices on the til. Got the spare bridge and mini's on ebay now. Could end up being a superb bargain, many thanks again :)
Well it isn’t obvious if I didn’t know is it? Otherwise I wouldn’t have asked the question.
Yes you can. Two way functionality added recently.
No you cannot, unfortunately. You can Echo but not Google. I think Google has one way bluetooth.
My dad bought one of these, but due to the fact his hearing isn’t great he can hardly hear the speaker. Does anyone know if you can link a Bluetooth speaker to it? I have the amazon echo which connects to my UE Boom 2 speakers, which are great.
>> There is a Google Home on eBay at the moment for £30 Is this Google Home? or the cheaper Mini version?
Code doesn't work anymore There is a Google Home on eBay at the moment for £30
Still annoys the heck out of me that I can use Google Assistant to play a movie on Netflix on Tv, but it can’t do the same for Google’s own Movie and tv content.
Nothing more. It’s just a speaker upgrade.
I think the code has expired, back to £89 plus p&p
Save up for 12 weeks instead then buy it cheaper and pocket the difference.
But with Very you get 12 weeks to pay interest free. Handy if you don't have the cash available immediately :)

Came here to post the same. Still not entirely clear where to buy, but with pre-orders now open from Nokia direct, you'd assume they would be a safe bet to get the Mini.
I was looking for the same thing last night. Seems to be coming free with Nokia 6 in Italy http://nokiamob.net/2018/03/24/buy-a-new-nokia-6-2018-and-get-google-home-mini-for-free-in-italy/ Would be good to hear this from an official source. The Nokia 8 cpw offer is very tempting at the moment... :/
I doubt they would release stores like this if it weren't true.... https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.androidauthority.com/nokia-7-plus-uk-release-date-free-google-home-mini-848853/amp/#ampshare=https://www.androidauthority.com/nokia-7-plus-uk-release-date-free-google-home-mini-848853/ Maybe I'm proved wrong when pre orders open
Has any solid proof emerged yet about this offer e.g from Google or Nokia themselves? I ask because I heard this offer might actually only apply to Nokia 6 and not the 7 Plus.
Got one, works great for me. You can subscribe to Google play music for 4 months free.
Ok thanks. I like Dougal!
This feature is coming very soon, it was briefly available to firmware 114510 according to Reddit. https://www.reddit.com/r/googlehome/comments/85wjkj/can_now_play_from_google_home_to_bluetooth_speaker/
No training other than the initial setup bit. Whilst Alexa is more natural, it also means that the dot used to wake up with similar sounding words or sounds. No accidental waking up with the home so far. Try "hey Dougal" with the home though. Someone else suggested it on here and it makes my son laugh! Or try "Ok Booboo" Surprisingly it works.
Out of interest have you trained the Home to everyone's voice? I didn't as I think it gives each person a profile so we can't share my music? Perhaps that's my problem. I'll try to sneak it back this eve. If only you could change the wake word to Alexa :)
Didn't work for me on internet explorer but did work on phone using Chrome.
Still works.... Don’t need it that’s why I didn’t order it but worth a punt if you want it
Hot, worked for some, it seems people vote cold because it does not work for them, not because of the deal, typical, isn't it...
Payment fails, poo
Keep getting payment failed type messages
Harsh cold vote. Cheapest around for the trusted shops. 104 elsewhere. Normally 129. I regret getting an Echo 2nd Gen, sound quality is poor and refuses to connect to Spotify Free (unlike Google Home), Alexa is incredibly dumb too and I hate her voice. Going back pronto Ordered thanks OP
Spell what? who are you? what do you want? me no English
You could Google how to spell you're You could Google how to spell you're
You still here!
Ignore this COLD deal.
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!
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.
Cheers for the heads up - dates in the original post confused me. Too hungover to head out anyway!!! ;)
NO!!!!! See the dates, this weekend is Westfield only. Smart-activated donut trucks - Westfield Stratford City (Westfield Ave, London E20 1GL): Thursday 22nd - Friday 23rd March: 11am - 7pm Saturday 24th March: 10am - 6pm Sunday 25th March: 12pm - 6pm Angel Central Shopping Centre (21 Parkfield St, London N1 0PS): Thursday 29th March: 8am - 6pm Friday 30th March: 10am - 6pm Saturday 31st March: 10am - 6pm Sunday 1st April: 12pm - 6pm Mini pop-up bike tour - John Lewis, Oxford Street (300 Oxford St, Marylebone, London W1C 1DX): Friday 30th March 2018: 10am - 6pm Saturday 31st March 10am - 6pm John Lewis, Westfield London, White City (Ariel Way, London W12 7GF): Friday 30th March 2018: 10am - 6pm Saturday 31st March 2018: 10am - 6pm
Thanks for the info m_b_m... Might pop down to John Lewis early tomorrow, put on my best smile and have a go...
Apologies, that wasn't the intention at all. Posting rules state that postage cost should be in title. Hence me mentioning free C&C. Otherwise the total cost would come up as £37.50.
Actually, London. This weekend. Google are giving them away at popup stores. You just need to find them
Free Google Home Mini? Where?
Able to fit any more free in the title to trick me anymore?
I'm gonna sound stupid, just checked this deal but it shows a us version and a au version. Obliviously one is for America. What's the other for? Plus the deal is still on
Thanks for sharing op
On the check out page there was a button for chat. I asked them to transfer me to someone in sales
Fingers crossed. I have 2 Sonos One's that my wife is not too keen on due to Alexa's inability to understand most simple commands.
They will, end of the year, Google assistant will be available on Sonos
Bought one from Argos at exactly the same time. Haven't stopped using it. Got google play music now and it is easily the best music service I have used for a while. Then got some TP Link plugs. Now all my floor lamps are voice automated. Absolutely love them. Then got a mini for the living room. Now getting a mini for the utility as well. Amazing devices. Even my son can get it to follow his baby talk and respond appropriately. Great with homework. As a family we are fully converted from the useless Alexa's to functional "Google" devices. Now if only Sonos would get their act together and replace the Alexa with Google.
They wouldn't bloody price match mine, must of been slightly too late!
But all the points you mentioned need a third party device
Th Not true! They both have merits and weaknesses. I use both. The Amazon echo dots are currently outselling Google home minis probably because the dots have the 'skills' feature which the home minis lack and the Amazon echo dots also have an audio output so you can connect high quality cabled speakers. The home minis don't. There's greater flexibility with the Amazon's echo than Google's home. I also prefer Alexa's voice over Google but either are good. The only thing I would favour with Google's home is you can have more of a natural conversation and Google is the biggest search engine so the minis will recognise more words and know more answers to the questions you throw at it. The echo's use Bing.
These are so much better than the Amazon Echo. I didn’t want either, but they ended up as the must give gift at Christmas.
As a father of a 9 month old, "OK google, play pepper pig on TV" while your hands are full of baby/nappy/food is very handy! That is, until he figures out how to say it himself I guess...
What do you mean not that useful? They're very useful, especially for:- - Cooking, can follow recipes without touching my phone. -Heating, just tell it to turn the heating up/down/off/on. -Calling, I never carry my phone around the house with me so generally just ask Google to call people. -Lights, main lights can turn on and off automatically but if you walk into a room at a random time you can just tell Google to turn the light on. -kettle, turn the kettle on remotely so there's hot water before you even get to the kitchen. -Celebs, is that celeb still alive/how old? And so much more...... *Forgot the most useful "Hey Google, where's my phone?" And it'll ring it for me even on silent!
sending my Google Home back. it's not a patch on Amazon Echo now i've tried both. Google home seems to robotic, it has number of issues such as activating on your phone at the same time. Delays in actioning functions. The way it has to repeat all the actions it's carries out (you can turn this off on Echo although it's minimal anyway) The silly touch control volume buttons... There are more. I tihnk google assistant is brilliant but it's fine on the phone, I don't need it as a box in my home when I have my phone near by most of the time. For the rest I will stick with Echo as it seems to function better for home automation.
I do ;) but i was thinking that 'Shauney3' has one for Google Home which is what inspired my post reply. Yes the DOT isnt pretty either .. but versus Google Home i think its the better styled device. The Echo Spot looks nice as does the Show and main Echo 2nd gen speakers its only really the DOT thats a little fugly.
Looks like Zeek codes ended midnight 21st March (yesterday).
Thanx it is that's for it is I think doesn't bother much with iPhone prefers I pad as he sees things better thanx for help (y) (y)
*Assuming you live somewhere posh enough to have either a JL or Waitrose. ;)
Don't forget 5% quidco!
Taken the plunge, hope I make use of it , thanks .
Main reason these are popular now over a Amazon dot is for free calls using google home READ HERE
well done thanks
