Spotted by Android Authority, Google's Home line of smart speakers and Home Hub smart display are all currently on sale at Best Buy. For example, the Google Home Hub smart display is priced at $99 for a $50 (or 34%) discount.

The original Google Home smart speaker is on sale for $89. That is a $40 or 31% discount off the regular price of $129. And the Google Home Mini, normally $49, is $20 off at $29. That works out to a 41% discount. Or you can pick up two Home Minis for $50, which saves you $48 or 49%. The same deals for the Google Home Hub, Google Home and Google Home Mini are also offered at Walmart, Target and the Google Store

Both smart speakers come with the top rated virtual personal helper, Google Assistant. Besides all of the things that we mentioned in the first paragraph, Assistant can ring your phone in case it is lost, tell stories to your kids, convert units of measurements and translate foreign languages.
