Google has unveiled its Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals, focusing mostly on products for the home. That's quite unfortunate for users hoping to see discounts for either the Pixel 2 or Pixel 2 XL.
Even still, expect to find price cuts for the Google Home lineup, in addition to the Chromecast. Check out the best deals below:
Google Home Black Friday Deals
Google is discounting its smart speakers for Black Friday, and both are perfect gifts for smart home-savvy relatives. Smart speakers are increasingly becoming a household staple, so this is perhaps the best time to get into that trend.
• Google Home Mini: Typically $49, the Home Mini is dropping down to $29 on top of a $10 store credit. That essentially makes it as low as $19. But for those who can't be bothered with a $10 Google Store credit, other retailers are also offering their freebies for every Home Mini purchase.
For starters, eBay's price-matching offer comes with a $10 gift card, while Best Buy and Target are also offering $10 gift cards toward future purchases. Walmart, meanwhile, is offering $25 off toward a future purchase for orders made via Google Express.
• Google Home: The standard Google Home will see its price go down from $129 to $79 via Google Store, Best Buy, Target, and Walmart, which is again offering the same $25 store credit toward future purchases.
Unfortunately, there are no discounts for the higher-end Google Home Max.
Google Chromecast Black Friday Deals
• Chromecast and Chromecast Audio: Both of Google's streaming sticks are being offered for just $25 via Google Store, but Walmart and Best Buy are offering for much less at $20 for the regular Chromecast. The 4K-capable Chromecast Ultra, meanwhile, will drop from $69 to $54.
The deals for Home Mini in particular are excellent because users can buy multiple sets without breaking the bank, especially considering that Home Minis are meant to be spread around the house, anyway.
Again, a Google Home or a Home Mini might just be the perfect gift this holiday season as smart home speakers increasingly become more popular and capable. Also, it's likely Google won't announce successors until October, so the current ones still have enormous value.
Thoughts about Google's Black Friday deals? Do you think it's likely for it to announce price cuts for the Pixel 2 or Pixel 2 XL? Or perhaps even the older Pixel and Pixel XL phones? As always, feel free to sound off in the comments section below!
