Make your home a little smarter with this offer from Best Buy, because you can get a free Google Chromecast when you pre-order Google Home for $179.99 -- a value of $45.00!

Google Home is Google's highly-anticipated smart speaker with Google Assistant, which lets you control smart devices with your voice. It can even answer obscure questions by getting real-time answers from Google and integrate with services like Spotify. Other features include:

  • Enjoy your music -- with a simple voice command, play tunes from services like YouTube, Google Play Music and Spotify. Enjoy even more compatible audio services by streaming directly from your phone to Google Home
  • Get answers from Google -- get answers to things you want to know including the latest on weather, traffic, finance, sports and more
  • Manage your everyday tasks -- Google Home can help you with things like your commute, flight information and more. Plus, it's a whiz at setting alarms, starting timers and adding items to your shopping list
  • Control compatible smart devices -- simply ask Google Home to stream videos to your TV with Chromecast or to turn up your Nest thermostat
  • Get superior sound and voice technology -- Google Home's high excursion speaker delivers HiFi sound quality. It can also hear you reliably thanks to far-field microphones

This offer is available online only until June 25. Pre-orders will begin shipping on June 26 and free shipping is included with this deal.

      Just noticed in the latest bestbuy flyer that they are taking preorders for the Google Home for $179.99 and get a Chromecast free. We must have entered "the twilight zone" as this actually appears to be a pretty fair conversion from the US price ($129.99 USD), normally we get shafted and then some when it comes to price difference of electronics between the US and Canada, plus a free Chromecast to boot. I've had the GH since BF when I bought it for $99 and even though the novelty has worn off a bit, it still comes in quite handy and the sound quality ain't too shabby.
      What are you even talking about, 130 vs 180...that is getting shafted then some. Thats above current exchange rate.

      I also dont see how a pre order is a hot deal.

      Buddy, $129.99 USD is approx $175.00 CDN at the current exchange rate on xe.com, your cc will never give you that rate, plus you get a Chromecast free ($45 value). People were paying more via b&hphoto.

      Not yet, preorder, Google said it should be released in June.

      My Google Home worked in Canada without any issues out of the box, no jumping threw hoops like with the echo. "hey Google, how far to the LCBO?" works :)

      You want the Chromecast Ultra (4k) free... And when you like your breakfast, sir? J/K

      Including the regular Chromecast is still quite generous, I'd say that's what makes this a hot deal, otherwise it'd be "room temperature" if it was just the GH

      I have a few echo dots and the home. I prefer the echo dots. Software on the home is way too glitchy. Just today it dropped its wifi connection. I had to power cycle it to get it to work again. And multiple times it's returned an error when i ask questions/to turn on and off my lights. Echo dots, spot on perfect ever since I got them.
