SAVE $20: As of Nov. 11, you’ll get $20 off when you buy two Google Nest Audio smart speakers at Best Buy.
There have been Alexa deals aplenty so far in this weird, month-and-a-half-long limbo period between Prime Day and Black Friday, so it’s about time we got something good on Google’s latest smart speaker.
Released in early October at a list price of $99.99, the all-new Google Home Audio is now on sale at Best Buy: If you buy two of them in any colors (matching or not), you’ll save a solid $20, or 10% — no coupon or promo code required.
Granted, this deal is far less impressive than the sky-high discounts Amazon’s Echo devices have been enjoying lately — but considering it’s the first time the Nest Audio’s ever been on sale, we’re not about to complain. Baby steps!
Besides, the device actually looks and works better in pairs: While overall “beautiful” in its design, “The Nest Audio looks incomplete on its own,” Mashable tech guru Brenda Stolyar wrote in her review (which you can read here), adding that “its compact size and small footprint almost begs for another one to be placed alongside it.”
Even more convincingly, Google’s equipped it with a pairing feature that lets you connect two Nest Audios for stereo sound. That’s on top of a speaker-to-speaker stream transfer setting, a speaker grouping tool, and multi-room audio control, all of which is managed through the Google Home app.
It should be noted that the Nest Audio is definitely more “Nest” than “Audio”: Its sound quality isn’t anything super special, making it better suited for people who need a smart speaker hub than audiophiles. But with 75 percent louder sound and 50 percent stronger bass than the original Google Home, it’s definitely worth upgrading if you’re already plugged into the Google Home ecosystem.
Best Buy’s website doesn’t mention an end date to its “$20 off 2” deal, but we doubt it’ll last long — hit the blue button below to snag a pair on sale for $179.98 while you still can.
