OP thank you for the explicit instructions. Hope it works. It seems like Spotify and Google would see that people are doing this. Don’t look a gift horse in the mouth.

This just worked for me as well. The directions were excellent. I grabbed the charcoal one.

Just followed all directions and worked like a charm. I canceled premium straight up which I do believe also cancels family as well so that should help me.

I cancelled the Premium membership... Does that by implication cancel the family membership? I don't see it


I believe so cause for me it said premium will end on 2/1. Family will also lose premium so I think it should be ok cause to have family you need premium.

Thanks OP!  Almost painless for me, everything was cool until trying to order the actual mini.  The Google store wouldn't accept my PO Box for a shipping address(I hate it when that happens) and it also wouldn't take a pre-generated cc number so I had to use my actual one.  Other than it won't ship til 21st no problems.  For only a $1 definitely worth the minor inconvenience.  Thanks again.

I wouldn't put a Google Mini/Amazon Alexa in my house. We say we hate advertising and then bring two of the biggest players in the space into our homes. To each their own. 

 

And yes, Amazon has an ad biz that it's scaling significantly; many believe it will take market share from duopoly of Google/FB.

You can always use it as a hockey puck.  If I'm honest that's probably I'll probably end up doing with mine.

I use my Insignia speaker in my living room to play music, and the hub in the kitchen mainly for cooking help, etc. and soon for my thermostat. I don't know where I'll put this one, but the others act as clocks more often than not. I've never gotten any ads, and Google isn't collecting anymore data from me than they already are with my Pixel, since they all connect back to your phone anyway.

Did you ever get the email?

I tried an account I already had, but never had premium on it. It allowed me to do the trial and I signed up for the family plan. But I didn't get the email about the Google Home. Unless its really delayed. Or the account I used isn't eligible?

If you don't get the email, you can visit this link and it should redirect you to the Google store. Add it to cart and in the checkout page, it should be free.

Mine said it wouldn't get to me till after Christmas (12/27 - 12/31/2018).  So don't think they are shipping these out super fast.  Iam also on the East coast so maybe that adds 5 days or so.  I am off that week so it works out fine for me.

Google states that discount will be applied at checkout, but no such discount is loading for me at all. Everything else worked fine up until this point, now Google wants $50. Anyone have this?

 

EDIT: Apparently you have to also never have purchased one of these, at least according to what I'm seeing. My "trash" gmail didn't work, proper one did. Purchased Google devices through that other email.

Did you have to use to separate Gmail accounts for both the Spotify account and the Google Home Mini order?
