These are in-store only (if it's the same email I just got) and for tomorrow (Saturday the 6th) only.

Oh bugger. Thanks for noticing. I should obviously read the (not so) small print.

 

Still, if anyone happens to be closer to a store than we are (only 100km away), might be useful.

Generally (actually every time I can remember) they run the sale "In Store Only" and then a couple of days later release it all online. Patience is a virtue.... ;-)





My views (except when I am looking out their windows) are not those of my employer.

Sure enough, online sale this monday from 6pm to midnight.
LG 60" 4K smart tv for $1400 seems like a good deal.

Can anyone tell me the difference between these 2 Google home minis,

the $59 looks like a good price but what's the catch?

1. No difference.

 

2. Kogan in Australia has them even cheaper than $59. Or at least they did when I got mine. From memory it was $NZ 149 NZ for a three pack, incl shipping.

The pricier one looks like it was imported from the US and therefore thinks it's there? does that even matter with google kit now, wouldnt it localise to NZ regardless?

My imported google stuff has a warning on setup that it may not work on my wifi. Seems fine but it might be unable to see channels 12/13/14 on the 2.4Ghz band and be a bit funky with the DFS channels. I have too much stuff that cant see DFS to bother using them so its not affecting me.
