I was able to reserve and then got a notice that the mini was available, I was taken to a purchase page where I was able to order the product and got a confirmation my order had been placed and was in stock.
I received the email saying my Mini is reserved and a link to order it But when I click the link it takes me to Spotify and then it takes me to the Google store, but I cannot purchase the Mini. I live in the US but India is the country that it defaults to in the Google store. Makes no sense. If I change the country to the US, and I put a Mini in the cart, it's full price.
My issue is that I have received an email saying my Google Home Mini awaits, and click "Get it now". However the link brings me to Google store, but there is no discount, no code, no special link for Spotify, etc. How do I get my "free" Mini??? What's the catch?
For those currently out of the US that don't see the discount applied at checkout because Google defaults to the local country where you currently are, I ended up using a VPN to "appear" in the US and then clicked on the "Get it Now" in the email from Spotify. Then everything worked like a charm.
I'm a current family plan. However I redeem the offer for the free google home mini and it said it was shipping out next week, but I never got an email. Now when I try to redo it it says it will cost me $53.04. Is there a special way for already existing owners to redeem their mini?
