Two-for-one Google Nest Mini special makes for perfect stocking stuffer

Two-for-one Google Nest Mini special makes for perfect stocking stuffer
If you're not a Google Fi or Spotify subscriber eligible for a free smart speaker with Google Assistant integration this holiday season, you may want to consider one of Best Buy's excellent stocking stuffers available for 24 hours only at an unbeatable price as part of the retailer's "12 Days of Deals" promotion.

You'll have to purchase two Nest Mini units to maximize your savings, and yes, you can mix and match the snazzy colors of Google's newest diminutive smart speaker however you want. By simply adding your two favorite hues from a palette that includes Chalk, Charcoal, Coral, and Sky flavors to your Best Buy cart, you can bring down the total regular price of $100 to a measly 50 bucks.

That essentially means you're looking at a buy-one-get-one-free type of deal here, although you can also save a decent $15 and pay a reasonable $35 for a single unit in your choice of the aforementioned colors. The same $35 offer is currently available at Google as well, but the search giant has no special deal in place for buyers of two Nest Mini units.

Formally unveiled just a little over two months ago, this looks extremely similar to the first-gen Google Home Mini on the outside, but on the inside, it comes with a major improvement in audio performance. Namely, the second-gen Nest Mini touts a 100 percent upgrade in bass compared to its forerunner, while also offering vastly enhanced voice recognition technology.

If you're wondering why you'd need more than one of these donut-sized gadgets, the answer is pretty simple: creating a multi-room setup allowing you to stream the same music throughout your home without spending a small fortune. Even better, Best Buy's Nest Mini 2-pack deal also includes free 90-day SiriusXM Premier Streaming and Pandora Premium subscriptions, as well as the chance to get a Google Chromecast bundled in for only $16 more.
