As clocks start to roll over to July 11th around the globe and Amazon’s Prime Day sales event gets underway, competitors are gearing up their own special deals. One of them is Google which has launched some special deals on Google Home and Chromecast devices in an effort to lure buyers over to their ecosystem for connected home and personal assistant hardware and services. Although not quite as cheap or discounted as heavily as an Amazon Echo, the Google Home can be grabbed for only $99.
Normally priced at $129, the $30 discount from Google could be just enough to keep some consumers from jumping on the Amazon Echo bandwagon. Amazon is offering their class-leading device for 50% off the normal price making it available for only $89 on Prime Day. That is not much difference in price between the two devices, although you do have to be an Amazon Prime member to get that deal on the Echo.
Google has also put in place some deals on the the 2nd generation Chromecast and Chromecast Audio. Normally priced at $35, either one can be purchased for only $25 right now. That is a sale price we have seen before for the Chromecast devices, but it may be a while before it crops up again.
If you are interested in any of these devices and want to take advantage of Google’s riding the Prime Day coattails, you can head over to the Google Store using the links below or check your favorite retailer like Best Buy to see if they are offering the same deal, which is very likely.
