    I was all over this deal last week. I went to Walmart.com and ordered two Minis with in store pickup through topcashback.com (which gave me 3% in cashback). I then linked my accounts on the Google Home app on my smartphone and went through the set up process and at the end of the set up process you can click to activate the coupon. Important note that there is a limit of 2 $25 Walmart credits per household. I figured picking up a smart personal assistant like this for under $5 each is a no brainer. If you like to have a better speaker on your Google Home product than you could get the full size Google Home instead. It is currently on sale for $79 and with the $25 Walmart Google Express credit factored in it would only cost you $54.

    I have an Amazon Echo also. i love both devices, but I must say I am very happy with the Google Home Mini. It is all I could ask for and will work well together with my Amazon Echo. They complement each other. What I like about the Mini is it can translate in a host of different languages, it has great speakers for being such a little guy, it gives great, in-depth answers to your questions (What else would you expect from the Goggle search engine?), and if you have a Chromecast hooked up to your smart TV (I have a Samsung smart TV) it can turn on the TV and play You Tube videos just by you asking. It can also turn off the TV afterwards by voice command. Just like the Echo, you an listen to free music on it too if you set up a free Pandora account.

    One thing though I like about my Amazon Echo that the Google Home can’t do is act as an intercom in your home when you own more than one in the same house. The Echo also allows you to call other people (in other locations) over their Echo. Both of them (Amazon and Google) let you make free calls to landlines or cell phones in the United States, Mexico, and Canada, but it is only the Echo that allows you to call other similar devices at home or not. So now I can call my sister on her Echo for free over her Echo and we live miles apart. The Google Mini can recognize your voice so you can personalize calling.

    Another thing to note about the Walmart offer is that on Google Express the prices at Walmart are higher than you would find from in store shopping at Walmart and the credits expire on January 31, 2018, but your Google Home Mini needs to be bought and activated by January 15, 2018 to qualify for the deal.

    My brother was a little quicker to the deal than I was and he got extra savings. He ordered his at the Google Express store and he had a 20% off total purchase coupon, so after the coupon he paid just cents (just tax) for each of his 2 Minis. I wanted to replicate what he did but the Google Express store sold out of them just before Christmas. For this offer there are only 3 places you can buy the Google Home product: Walmart in store, Walmart.com, and Google Express.

    The Google Home Mini just came out about two-and-a-half months ago, while its big brother the Google Home came out about 13 months ago (November 2016).

    Here are some reviews of the Google Home Mini (for the first review just click on the first picture):

    The title is a bit misleading, it’s not a $25 Walmart GC, just a $25 credit to Google Express. How does the credit work, are there any delivery fees, etc?

    A Walmart GC I would normally use at Sam’s Club.

    There is free Walmart shipping at the Google Express store if your order totals $35 or more, so that means you must spend additional OOP money to get to the free shipping threshold. During the holidays they lowered the free shipping amount to just a $15 total spend, but now it is back up to $35. Besides the possible shipping charge if your order does not reach $35 I do not believe there are any other fees involved.

    Yes, the deal would be better for us if they just gave us a $25 Walmart gift card, but that wouldn’t allow Google to get their cut. I agree the title to the post needs to be edited to say a “$25 Walmart credit to the Google Express store” rather than saying a “$25 Walmart GC” because that is not what you actually get.

    I notice that many of the Walmart products sold on Google Express are priced considerably higher than the Walmart in-store price. Does anyone have any suggestions of useful things to get at Walmart where there isn’t too large of a mark up between the Google Express and the Walmart in-store or Walmart online price?



  • In 2018 My resolution is to continue to never give google a cent for anything.

    How are people using their $25 credit(s) coupon?
    I think the $25 coupon expires at the end of this month.



  • Limited choice at Walmart on Google express. Many grocery items are priced higher than local super market. $35 minimum order for free shipping. I placed one order yesterday using $25 promo code from one of them. Will do another soon.

    I tried using it last night but it doesn’t combine with $25 Walmart credit which is a coupon.
    This was my worst deal in recent times since first they price adjusted to bring the total down below $50 and I didn’t get the $20 Amex offer credit either and now having to buy overpriced items,
    Never going to use Google Express again.



  • Did not try it yet, but I think this just changed my opinion on Google Express. Thank you!

    I still want to try the device though. Haha. The review up top kind of sold me.
