How to Get a Google Home Mini for Free or an Amazon Echo Dot for Under $1
Do you want a brand new smart speaker for free or for cheap? You’re in luck because the Google Home Mini and Echo Dot are currently being offered for little to no cost. Here’s how you can get a Google Home Mini for free or an Echo Dot for less than $1.
How to Get the Google Home Mini for Free
Spotify is giving away a Google Home Mini speaker to any existing or new premium users. All you have to do is sign up for a Premium Individual or Premium Family Spotify plan, and you’ll get a Google Home Mini sent to your home for free. That’s it, simple and easy.
To see if you’re eligible, go to your Spotify account, browse to the premium page, and then proceed to the Google Home page. Alternatively, you can head directly to Spotify’s promo page. This offer will expire on November 15, or until supplies last. The code will no longer be usable by December 31 of this year. Apart from the promo period, there are also several other factors that will affect your chances of getting a Google Home Mini for free.
This promo is not available to those with student or trial plans. But if you forego your trial plan and head straight to Premium, you will be eligible. Moreover, you can’t get a Google Home Mini if you have already received one from a previous Spotify promo. You are eligible if you have a Google-approved form of payment, have a Google Assistant-linked Spotify, and if Google can ship the smart speaker to your area.
Google will ship the smart speaker to you for free using standard shipping. If you want the shipment expedited, you’ll need to pay extra.
If you’re not eligible for a free Google Home Mini, don’t fret. You can get the Amazon Echo Dot for extremely cheap instead.
How to Get the Amazon Echo Dot for $1
Right now, the 3rd Generation Echo Dot is being offered for only $.99, as long as you get a one-month subscription to Amazon Music Unlimited. This subscription will only cost you $7.99 a month, but you can cancel any time. In total, the smart speaker can be yours for only $8.98. That’s quite a deal considering that the 3rd Gen Echo Dot normally costs $50.
You can get the Echo Dot and one month of Amazon Music bundle by going to its Amazon page here (Amazon).
Just like the Google Home Mini offer, terms and conditions apply. You will only be eligible if you are an Amazon Prime member, and you have not signed up for Amazon Music Unlimited yet. Take note, however, that if you go for this offer, your Amazon Music subscription will be renewed automatically at the end of the month. If you don’t see yourself ever using the streaming service, be sure to cancel your subscription before it renews. Here’s how to do that:
How to Cancel Amazon Music Subscription
Go to Amazon.com and sign in.
Click on Accounts & Lists. You will see this under your name in the top-right corner of the window.
Then click on Music Subscriptions.
Finally, click Cancel Subscription under Subscription Renewal. You will still be able to use Amazon Music until the end of your one-month subscription plan even after you cancel.
