The Chromecast is a great little device, it gives a lot of functionality for a mere $49, but who wants to pay full retail? Well, don’t, here’s a couple of ways to get a Chromecast for a discount.
We’ve seen quite a few deals from Dick Smith of late, but it seems you can also get a good deal from JB Hifi at the moment. Over on OzBargain , user Chthonic describes a deal that will get you a Chromecast in-store for $39.20. Apparently JB are running a promotion on their gift cards: Buy a $50 Gift Card and get 20% off your next purchase (up to a maximum of $20 off a $100 purchase). This of course sees you laying out $50, but you’ll still have $10.80 to spend.
Note: We’re not sure if you can use this deal on Gift Cards, but you could in theory actually purchase a $50 Google Play Gift Card to get 20% off. Might be best asking staff in-store.
If you’re nowhere near a JB HiFi store, or can’t be bothered heading in, you can always try out eBay. Melbourne based seller heloMolto is selling Australian stock Chromecast for $39, including delivery on their eBay site.
There’s many uses for Chromecast, streaming video/music, surfing the web or mirroring your screen to it. There’s also exclusive deals like a months worth of Foxtel Presto or three months of Google Play Music All Access.
We love Chromecast here at Ausdroid and think you should try it out.
