Monday , October 22 2018 Ausdroid » Hardware » JB Hifi is offering great pricing on Google products at the moment

Fancy a hot price on some Google gear? JB Hi-Fi have you covered with some great prices on Google’s connected home gear.

The Home Mini, a perfect way to get into the connected world without breaking the bank is down to $49, from $79 RRP.

The regular Google Home will set you back $129 (down from $198) and the Chromecast devices are currently $49 for the standard Chromecast (down from $55), $59 for the Chromecast Audio (not redeuced recently; this appears to be the ‘new’ price) and $84 for the Chromecast Ultra (down from $99).

With savings of up to $70 off retail (depending on where you compare), JB has some great deals; it’s worth noting, though, that many other retailers are also selling Google connected home gear for less than RRP, so JB isn’t the only place you can get this stuff with a discount.

Of course if you’re not ready to jump in right now, being the start of the new financial year there’s going to be plenty of specials coming soon so keep your eyes out for that.

What are you waiting for to jump into a connected home setup?

Jb isnt the only one to have this deal. Leading Edge Electronics stores also have this same deal for the most part.

Ausdroid has been reporting whatever bargain deals (irrespective of the store) they come across for a long time. Keep it up Ausdroid, I find these very helpful!

And I’m pretty sure Ausdroid reported on it when JB dropped the Pixel prices some ~$500 in a sale not long ago; same reporting as when there are big many-hundred-dollar savings on Samsung phones etc.

At this point I feel like the writer needs to declare what profits he gets off this post.

A quite poor article, Phil, since it fails to say what the regular prices are at JB HiFi for the products.
The worst offender is this sentence:
“The Home Mini, a perfect way to get into the connected world without breaking the bank is down to $49.”
Down to $49 from what?

Well retail is $79 so it’s a $20-$30 saving on the Google home mini.

Bigger Google home is normally between $170 & $199 so there is a saving there also.

Chromecast (normal) is $79-$99
Chromecast 4k – $99 – $120 from memory
Chromecast audio – $59 RRP normally

Thanks Alex. That info really should have been in the article, so readers could actually see what the savings are.

These prices are nothing special.

Google Home is usually $199. Now it’s $129. That’s a pretty good special. And it’s Australian stock.

You may see it around $129-139 at some other places, but that’s US stock that doesn’t have Australian localisations (eg the Australian radio stations don’t work on the US grey imports.)

Officeworks has these as standard prices

not sure what special Officeworks you’re looking at… Google Home is literally $198. https://goo.gl/Ms7Azj

Chromecast has been 49 at Officeworks for as long as I can remember.
