Who doesn’t like free tech?
That’s the question at the heart of Spotify’s new promotion: The music streaming company is offering free Google Home Mini smart speakers to anyone paying for a Spotify Family subscription ($15/month).
But the free offer is limited — you’ve gotta act fast! So, how do you get one? Follow these simple steps:
First things first, two limitations:
1. The free Google Home Mini offer applies to both new and existing Spotify Premium for Family customers in the United States.
2. The offer is only available for the month of November, so get in while you can.
Okay, let’s get to the directions!
2. Make sure your subscription is a Family Plan.
There are a few different types of Spotify paid accounts. To get the free Google Home Mini, you have to be a subscriber to the Spotify Premium for Family plan.
The Premium Family plan costs $14.99/month, but it allows up to five people to access Spotify Premium (no ads, offline listening, etc.) using individual accounts. That’s just $5 more than the usual price of a single Spotify Premium account — it’s a no-brainer if even just two people are using the service, let alone five.
5. Place your order!
The free Google Home Mini is ordered directly through Google’s online store. At checkout, Spotify automatically applies a code that renders the $50 asking price moot — the cost is covered.
There’s no shipping cost either — it’s just a matter of choosing your Google Home Mini in one of its three colors (white, gray, and coral), entering your shipping info, and checking out.
