Chromecast Now Available From Amazon for $35 With Prime Shipping (Best Buy Too)


Chromecast, Google’s new HDMI TV dongle, may be sold out through Google Play already, but Amazon now has it up and live for the same $35 price, plus Prime shipping. If you were in need of an incredibly affordable accessory that allows you to stream content from your phone, tablet, or computer to a TV, this is probably your best choice.

Amazon Link

Update: ย If it’s sold out through Amazon (which it likely is), feel free to try Best Buy who is also offering free shipping. Some stores may have the Chromecast in stock as well. To find out, you can call your local stores and give them SKUย 9071056.

Update 2: ย Best Buy is showing as being sold out online. Again, check with your local stores.

Cheers Matt, Tristan, Daniel, and everyone else!

    Damn it, missed my opportunity. Was available for pickup at a local Best Buy. Had to kid the kids down for a nap and when I came back GONE. Crap I think these things are now officially sold out EVERYWHERE. And the resellers on Amazon are gouging the crap out of these things.

    I blew it. I had it in my cart on bestbuy.com and waited. I have windows 7 on my desktop at home, but wanted to make sure the OS on my MacBook Pro was compatible as well before I bought it, and now it’s sold out :/

  • Carlos_Danger

    Most Best Buy stores in Mass. have it in stock

  • BaltiCzar

    Anybody know if I can stream content (movies) from my PC with this like I do with my Logitech Revue (Google TV)?

    Just bought one anyway though. The price is a no-brainer. If it does the question above…I will be buying two more and then I’ll be needing to beef up my Fios wifi signal in the house with a range extender, bridge or some other method.

    Mine officially shipped from the Play Store. Should have it in a day or two.

  • ToddAwesome

    Officially shipped from Google today, estimated arrival 7/30. I can’t wait to ‘cast’ as much por…….Sesame Street videos to my tv as possible.

    Back in stock at Best buy, says delivering by the 1st of Aug. Also, i had $25 in rewards from them so i bought it for an awesome $10.75 after tax! with the 3 month from Netflix ๐Ÿ™‚

    • David Lutz

      ^This! I had $20 in reward zone credit collecting dust, so I figured what the hell.. ships 8/1 – 8/6. Total was $16.05 with tax. With the $24 saved on Netflix I’m in essence being paid to get the Chromecast. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Savan Ghetiya

    do you get the netflix 3 month ordeal if you buy from amazon or best buy? or is it only from google play?

    • socalrailroader

      No, I got the deal when I ordered it tonight from Best Buy. I believe Amazon has the deal as well.

      • Leo

        My order says the same exact things, does that mean the chromecast is definitely being shipped to your destination

        • socalrailroader

    • David Lutz

      Not yet, anyway. But who knows what some enterprising developer will come up with? ๐Ÿ™‚

  • BloodiedWraith

    A friend and I bought one from Best Buy earlier today. Figured even if I don’t ever use it and/or hate it – I get 3 months free of Netflix so that’s $24 I normally would’ve spent that’s saved so $11 out of pocket. Not bad.

    I am enjoying it at the moment though, and answered my own question from another post and it indeed does work through my receiver and now I get Google Play Music in 7.1 surround sound.

  • Humberto

    Scored 2 from BB… Locally ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • RampageDeluxe

    With 3 free months of Netflix, its like getting it for $11.

    I’m using my shiny new ChromeCast right now. Got it at Best Buy tonight. Very easy setup and works just as advertised.
    Amazon Instant Video works fine as does Hulu and just about every other site I’ve checked.

    • Steve Benson

      And by every other site you’ve checked, you mean the porn sites you frequent ๐Ÿ˜‰
