Deal: Google's most expensive smart speaker, the Home Max is on sale for $145 off

Deal: Google's most expensive smart speaker, the Home Max is on sale for $145 off
The Home Max is not only the most expensive Google smart speaker but also the largest in its class, hence the name. Originally launched on the market for $400, Google Home Max can be often bought for $300, but we're not yet convinced that Google has decided to permanently drop the smart speaker's price to boost sales.

So, whenever the Google Home Max goes on sale for less than $300, you should definitely take it into consideration if you're in the market for a large smart speaker. As it happens, Rakuten offers a pretty good deal on the Google Home Max, as long as you hurry and place your order right now.

The smart speaker is listed on Rakuten for $300, but you can further slash the price to just $254 by applying the SAVE15 code at checkout. That's $145 off the original price, a great deal for such an expensive smart speaker.

You can buy the Google Home Max in either charcoal or chalk, but you can also add the Google Home Mini and pay an additional $50. However, we don't really recommend getting the Home Max + Home Mini bundle since Google's smallest smart speaker can be had for half price at many US retailers.
