Got mine on Tuesday (around 10 days from when I signed up- had my shipping date updated twice during that time). Thanks again to the "op" on this promotion. Cancelled Spotify the day it arrived.

Their plan worked. I want a couple more of these for the house now. I figured it would be trash like Siri, but it answers pretty much any question instantly among other things I find useful. I asked seemingly hard questions too like why the infinity blade was removed from Fortnite and it told me instantly.

I’ve had one since last November, and it was fine to control things like my thermostats and some of the lights I have around the house. I also took advantage of a few other deals and ended up with a few more over the the last few weeks and honestly, I enjoy having more of them.

I like being able to play my Spotify playlist on all of them simultaneously, great for when you’re cleaning around the house. It’s awesome for reminders or broadcasting notes around the house too. I also discovered that it works with TVs that feature HDMI CEC in conjunction with Chromecast, so I can have it flip on YouTube, Netflix, etc. as well as turn my TVs off and on. Not to mention having the ability for it to turn on a Bluetooth it’s synced to at your request is pretty handy.

I’m really enjoying the network of them. If google wants to listen to my pedantic life of bitching at video games, accidentally burning myself while cooking or grunting while I dump out on the can, more power to them.

I'm giving my Mini as a gift, but I had also gotten in on the free Alexa from Amazon as well last month and I'm quite enjoying it as well. I mostly just use it as a bluetooth speaker/to play Spotify in my room when I'm working which is quite nice.

I got my aqua green one yesterday and I added my main spotfiy account to my trial account so now I have the premium service.

What are my chances Spotify will cancel my service due to having both accounts using my name yet different email?

I've got mine set up just to use a Blutooth speaker basically. It's great for that at $1. Not ideal since it doesn't have any kind of battery, but if you put it's loud enough for a room or two if you aren't moving it around constantly.
