We don’t typically showcase items that aren’t directly Android related, but the following deal is just too cool not to share and it is technically related to Android in a roundabout way. Listed as a Best Buy doorbuster deal, anyone who purchases a 14-cup Bella Pro coffeemaker for $30, down from its usual price of $60, will receive a free Insignia Voice Smart Bluetooth speaker with Google Assistant built-in.
What makes this is a super bonus deal is the fact that this Insignia speaker is typically $99 (rated quite well, too!), currently on sale for $50, but comes free with the purchase of the Bella coffeemaker. It’s one of the oddest, but intriguing deals I think we’ve ever come across.
Do note, though, that while this Insignia speaker acts the same way as a Google Home, like answer to “Ok Google” and control your other smart home products, it does not support voice calls. That could be a deal breaker for some. On the bright side, it does have a digital clock, so if having Google Assistant next to your bed to act as an alarm clock and on-demand weatherman sounds cool, then there you go.
As for the coffeemaker, according to Best Buy’s listing, “It lets you schedule brewing up to 24 hours in advance, and its strength selector has regular, gourmet and bold options to suit your taste.” To sum it up, it makes coffee, but doesn’t have any real smarts that makes it a better pairing with the Insignia speaker.
If getting this Insignia speaker for just $30 intrigues you, plus the free coffeemaker, check it out by following the link below.
Update: It appears Best Buy has pulled the free Insignia speaker with the coffeemaker purchase at this time, but you can keep checking the page periodically to see if they add it back. Sorry for any inconvenience.
