Google is hosting a sale at the moment on most of the products it sells (like Google Home Max), so its retail partners are doing the same. However, some of those partners are sweetening the pot by tossing in additional freebies. Best Buy, for example, has matched the Google Home Mini at $39 ($10 off), but is including a free Wemo Mini smart plug too ($29.99 value).
So not only do you get the Google Assistant in a room of choice at a discount, you’ll get to turn one of the outlets in your house into a smart outlet. The Wemo Mini smart plug will let you hookup an appliance and then have it turn off or on via app or by voice. I use these types of smart plugs for corner lamps in my living room, so that they can be on a timer and my lazy ass doesn’t have to get up to turn them on or off. I also use them for Christmas tree lights each year. They are super handy to have.
The deal is likely for this weekend only as a part of Best Buy’s 3-day sale. To get the free Wemo plug, all you have to do is add a Google Home Mini to cart.
