BOGO deal available at Best Buy for the Google Home smart speaker

Smart speakers will probably be one of the most popular gifts given this holiday season. With the combination of a speaker and a virtual personal assistant, users can control smart appliances in their home. They can also stream music, announce sports scores, stock prices, the news and the weather. And with these devices you can set an alarm or a countdown timer, order a pizza and even arrange for a Lyft.

Smart speakers are priced reasonably, which make them a great gift for the holidays. And Best Buy has the perfect sale on the Google Home. With a BOGO promotion on the full-sized model, you can pick up two smart speakers for $129.98. That's one for you, and another for a friend or family member. Or, if you already own one, you can take care of two names on your holiday shopping list for the price of buying one unit. And the Google Home Mini can be purchased for $29.99 at Best Buy. For the same $129.98 that buys you a pair of Google Home smart speakers, you can purchase four Google Home Mini units, and still have enough change for McDonald's.

Apple was supposed to take over the high end of the smart speaker business this month with its $349 Apple HomePod that features a premium speaker, and Siri. But Apple recently pushed back the launch until early next year, stating that the product is not yet ready for the public to use. That leaves the field open for Amazon's wide range of Echo products (Amazon created the category with the original Echo in 2015), the Microsoft Invoke powered by Cortana, and upcoming models expected from Sony and Samsung. The latter two will feature Google Assistant and Bixby, respectively. And of course, there is the Google Home line.

This deal could end at any time, so if you're interested, click on the sourcelink to take advantage of the BOGO offer.

HomePod will come and sweep away all the market share from Amazon and Google for assistant speakers.

You are wrong and you can't afford it anyway. Amazon and Google are already wiping the floor with Apple's vaporware.

"Apple was supposed to take over the high end of the smart speaker business this month with its $349 Apple HomePod that features a premium speaker, and Siri"... lmfao. They were supposed to, huh? I made an exception and gave alan f. the click simply because i didnt know there was a deal on the google homes, but of course i completely expected classic alan f. Apple plugging/loving garbage in a google home post, and of course alan f. delivered. Never doubted you, kiddo. Unfortunately for you, and your beloved apple, Sonos is now in the high end smartspeaker market. And their speakers come with GA and alexa, aka fuller, much better assistants than siri.
