ALL GONE: Can you get a £49 Google Nest Mini for 'free' or £10?
Possible freebie for new and existing Spotify 'Premium' subscribers
MSE Update, Mon 7 Sep at 10.40am: Spotify says that due to high demand, the Google Nest Mini offer is no longer available. We've left the below for reference.
Music streamer Spotify is offering a free Google Nest Mini (formerly Google Home Mini) voice-activated smart speaker to new and existing £10 per month 'Premium' subscribers. You can do this until 11.59pm on Wed 30 Sep, or while stock lasts. The speaker is normally £49, but it's currently on offer for £29 at Google Store and other retailers. Please read this carefully and do note the risks with this deal before going ahead with it.
The offer will work with any of its Premium plans, and the £9.99 per month individual account is the cheapest way to get it, unless you’re a student, then it’s just £4.99 per month. See 'More info' below for a full list of plans and prices. You'll also need a free Google account (or to set one up).
If you're already a Spotify Premium member – including 'Duo' or 'Family' accounts – you can claim the Google Nest Mini for free (see how), and as you can cancel your Spotify membership anytime, newbies can technically sign up to bag this deal then immediately cancel once you’ve ordered the Google Nest Mini (paying just £9.99 for your first, and last, month of Spotify streaming).
Spotify wouldn't tell us how many Google Nest Mini devices are available, but did say it's 'while supply lasts'. It's confirmed this trick works – and a few of us at MSE got it when we tried – but we expect this to be popular, so go quick if it's something you want as it could end the promotion at any point.
Important: Just in case it goes wrong or Spotify closes the loophole, only do this if you’re prepared to take the risk of paying £10 for a month’s music streaming with no extra perks.
1. Sign up or in to a Spotify Premium account via this Spotify link by Wed 30 Sep (though the deal could end sooner if it's popular so don't hang about) and you'll see a message saying you've registered for your Google Nest Mini. Important: You'll be charged every month until you cancel your subscription. Only the primary account holder can claim the freebie.
2. You'll then receive an email (likely within 24 hours – though ours arrived much quicker) telling you your free device is now available to order – see image below. Click 'Get it now' in the email by Sat 31 Oct and you'll be taken to the Google Store online, where you can choose one of four colours and the discount will be automatically applied.3. When you get to the Google Store, you'll need to sign up to a free account (or log in if you already have one). You're required to enter a valid payment card if one isn't already on your account – though you won't be charged and you should see there's no cost for the device before you complete the checkout.4. Google will then post the Google Nest Mini to you – delivery's free and you'll be given an estimated delivery date.
- Individual - £9.99/month
- Duo - £12.99/month – allows two people within the same household to get the Premium service.
- Family - £14.99/month – allows up to six people within the same household to get the Premium service.
- Student - £4.99/month
You can't get this deal if you've had a free Google device via a Spotify promotion in the past.
This offer excludes the Channel Islands, Isle of Man and Gibraltar.
Cheapest Google Home/Nest Black Friday deals
Eg, £29 Nest Mini (norm £49), £59 Nest Hub (norm £119)
"Ok Google", let's take a look at the cheapest Black Friday prices we could find for Google Home devices.
A lot of the big retailers are price-matching each other, meaning there isn’t a stand-out lowest price, however, some are offering longer warranty periods and other small extras, such as a free six-month subscription to Spotify Premium at Currys, so it's up to you where you choose to purchase from.
Of course, prices could change throughout the week before Black Friday itself (29 Nov), so be sure to do your own price comparisons, but here's what we found at 11.14am on Fri 29 Nov:
- Google Home Mini - £19 (norm £49) at Google until 11.59pm on Tue 3 Dec. Same price at Currys* and Argos*.
- Nest Mini (the latest Google Mini device) - £29 (norm £49) at Google until 11.59pm on Tue 3 Dec. Same price at Currys* and Argos*.
- Google Home - £49 (norm £89) at Google until 11.59pm on Tue 3 Dec. Same price at Currys*.
- Nest Hub - £59 (norm £119) at Google until 11.59pm on Tue 3 Dec. Same price at Currys*, John Lewis* and Argos*.
- Nest Hub Max - £189 (norm £219) at Google until 11.59pm on Tue 3 Dec. Same price at Currys*, John Lewis* and Argos*.
Important: Don’t allow yourself to be taken in by the hype around Black Friday and be sucked into buying something you don’t need or can’t afford. Always do your own price comparisons to ensure you are getting the best deal possible – don’t just take a retailer’s word for it.
