Giveaway: Win a Google Home or $10 Google Play Gift Card

Orders of the Google Home are expected to ship out in early November, and if you didn’t order one from the Google Store, we here at DL would like to get one into your home once they are available. That’s right, we’re giving away a Google Home, only because we love you.

With Google Home, Assistant is just a brief “Ok, Google” away, capable of sharing the weather, sports scores, booking a movie date, or any number of different things.

We are giving away a single Google Home unit, but for five other people, you will win a $10 Google Play gift card. Sure, it’s not Home, but it’s a few new apps and games from Google Play that you might want. Having made the entry process very simple using Rafflecopter, go ahead and enter, then cross those fingers. Winners will be selected this Friday at 12PM Pacific.

Enough talk, let’s do this. 



Grand Prize: 1 (one) Google Home. Secondary Prizes: 5 (five) $10 Google Play gift cards.

How to Enter

a Rafflecopter giveaway


Our winners will be selected on Friday, October 28 at 12PM Pacific.

  • dragon19104

    Maybe Home will help me get my kids out of bed for school in the mornings.

  • Jacob Hanson

    I have been actively trying to convince my wife that her iPhone sucks compared to the latest android keynote stuff announced and she finally is interested in switching. I am very frugal so this would be very helpful to try and get our little family to be a Google/Android family instead of being a house divided.

  • Craig Lambert

    I suck at being random. Even if I don’t win one, I’ll be buying one.

  • RDHose

    Curious how it will sound to actually play music.

  • Logan Jinks

    Owning a Google Home hub would be awesome. Just more proof that we’re finally living in the future.

    Now hurry Flying Cars!

    It will help me play soothings sounds while I meditate and replace my radio player

  • Parbati Baral

    It would replace my old Radio Player in my kitchen. And will help me to cook new dishes for my family by watching youtube cooking videos

  • Jason Smith

    Having Google Home in my house would help me and my family better manage our lives and our home.

  • ramifications

    Having a google home would allow me to finally add some home automation to my house. It would be the first piece to the puzzle so that I can get some smart lights and a Nest to go with it!

  • I’m getting ready to move into a new house in three weeks, and a Google Home would be an excellent housewarming gift.

  • GuidZilla

    Quick weather checks and lighting controls are what interests me.

  • Adam Intinarelli

    Honestly the best use for a Google Home for me would be as a speaker for when I’m in the shower listening to music, because then I can answer an important text since they always seem to come when I cannot answer them quickly.

  • Nathaniel Mosher

    I hope I win?

  • SotoSano

    I could really use this to help the whole family keep track of our busy schedules.

    Next gen home tech needs to come my way …

    Is this the time I win, let’s see….

  • smisa27

    If I were to win….the one and only…Google Home……….I would be able to conquer…….THE WORLD!!!! *BUM BUM BUMMMMM*


    First – I will place my Google Home in my bedroom. Set it up, and ask it to wake me up every morning. Then I would secretly tell Google to remind me of all my genius ideas. Then I would tell Google to cast YouTube tutorials to my TV so that I may learn all that is necessary to accomplish my goals, and life dreams.

    Once I have completed conquering the bedroom…I will obtain another Google Home for my kitchen!!! That way, once hunger has stricken me, I may tell Google to cast me some delicious food ideas to my TV and I may learn how to make the most delectable meals ever known to man-kind.

    Next, I will then either obtain or move my Google Home to the living room and bathrooms so that I may inquire any knowledge needed to complete any tasks that may come about with my problematic home. The evil pipes being clogged by hair! The treacherous washer and dryer and learning how to get my clothes clean without them shrinking for my action figures. (They’re ACTION FIGURES!! Not dolls!!!!)

    Fourth – Once I have completely conquered my home and the many tasks that hinder me from moving forward…I will then move ever so slowly to conquer the world!!! One small step for Google Home…one giant leap for automatic life!!!!

  • Lain Macauley

    I actually don’t know if it would benefit my family and I, but I know it would be damn kool to win it!

    the ultimate argument settler

  • Drew Landgrave

    Having a baby soon and it would be awesome for them when growing up to be able to talk to google and get answers like that kid in the google home video… Also would be awesome for me to be changing the baby and be all, “Okay Google, Put more diapers on my shopping list”

  • foamman

    Another way for me to annoy my wife!

    It would be a really cool party trick

    I just want to be able to use the new home app with the fancy new icon.

  • Larry Franks

    Actually getting answers to all the questions I ramble on about all day

  • To be able to play music and videos on my TV without poking at my phone.

  • Nate

    My kids can ask their repetitive questions to someone other than me.

  • hd fegely

    I can cuddle with it on the cold winter nights ahead

  • MichaelFranz

    I’d be able to annoy my wife more with my rambling and she would have to face the fact that our hone will be a smart one

  • Joshua Rewerts

    Mostly to resolve random debates where my wife and I are too lazy to grab our phones and look up answers.

  • Snowbo13

    Yes please I ordered one but multi speaker/ homes around the house would be very nice!

  • Nick M

    So I can tell Google to cast pornhub to all my TVs

  • strikeir13

    I would be able to improve the wifi coverage while also increasing functionality for voice commands throughout the house

  • TimTheK

    A free Google home would be sweet. My kids could stop asking me to search things on Google for them or play music on my phone. They could make Google do it. That would be nice

  • Jay

    Be able to voice stream my google music library

  • wreidallen

    It would help by freeing up my hands to handle our 3 year old and new baby that is due on Sunday!

  • f0r71fy

    My house already has several Google products so this would fit right in.

  • Ryan

    For starters I would use it for playing music. It would integrate with my Nest but that is already pretty well auto-scheduling. Long-term I am hoping I can get some lamps and light switches working. Then I could program scenes and have it go to them. Like a “playing music with dinner” scene where it turns off the non-dining room lights, lowers the volume and plays background music. Then a movie scene, where it dims the lights in my living room and switches the TV to chromecast. That would be ideal.

  • Rodin

    Would make the life easier, because i could ask for things that now i have to make them manually.

    Another contest that I will sadly not win.

  • Just Win Babies

    My wife would stop getting mad at me for constantly yelling out Alexa while we sleep.

  • podwats

    my kids can ask something else for money and not get it

  • Mike White

    Help me prepare for the Singularity

  • franek1983

    My wife and I could get traffic news and calendar events notifications while getting ready for work in the morning

  • ki11ak3nn

    My family loves to listen to music and right now I’m using Spotify via Chromecast on my TV. My TV’s speakers aren’t really the best. I don’t know how the audio quality is going to be, but having Google Home right on my kitchen island vs music on my TV far away in the living room seems like a huge plus in my book.

  • Adam Eslinger

    It would help me make a smoother transition into the robot takeover.

  • Andrew

    it would help by organizing our busy schedules with reminders and calenders, to weather and traffic.

  • Alan Hoang

    Google Home would let me set my alarms while in bed so I’m never late to work

  • If I have Google Home, I would finally be using Google Now / Assistant. I have disabled the “Ok Google from everywhere” (i.e. always listening) on my phone because it eats my battery. If I have a dedicated hardware made for “always listening” part, I’ll finally use it all the time.

    Jacked for google music and voice casting!

    Being able to access the traffic and weather before leaving for work while getting dressed would be amazing!

    It would be so much easier to use my Hue lights. My wife would really appreciate that!!

  • JiGSaW525

    I would be able to talk to my lightbulbs instead of my wife.

            Who’s god?

          • Your best friend who loves you very much but will send you to hell if you know about him and don’t follow his very arbitrary and outdated rules.

          • chrismulliner

            That’s ridiculous. Sounds like a made up story used to start wars, get out of taxes and segregate the human race.
