Did you pre-order a Pixel 2, like I did, or Pixel 2 XL? Check your inbox, because El Googz is now sending out those free Google Home Mini promo codes. Everyone who ordered a P2/P2XL between October 4th and October 19th gets one, regardless of which retailer you bought from.
I got my promo code yesterday and got a shipping confirmation earlier today with an expected delivery date of tomorrow, November 9th. I’m a bit skeptical on that ETA though, so we’ll see. If not Thursday, I’ll have it Friday for sure, it seems.
A rough start for the Mini
The Google Home Mini made its debut alongside the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL on October 4th at Google’s big unveiling. At the time, the company told customers about the freebie, and the buzz was high. Unfortunately, the device got caught up in a bit of a controversy shortly after. This lead to the company disabling top-touch functionality altogether, for the time being.
If said functionality will return one day is still a mystery.
Rob got his Mini shortly after they became available in Canada. He wrote an article with his initial impressions of the pint-sized device if you want to check that out. I’ll do a full, in-depth review, with more photos of the device once mine shows up, as well.
While you’re waiting on that, we want to hear your thoughts, friends! At $49, will you (or did you already) buy a Google Home Mini? Did you pre-order a Pixel 2 or Pixel 2 XL and now you’re getting a Mini for free?
