I'm just hoping that they sell the Google Home Hub in Canada before Christmas. They are currently only available in the US and will be on sale for $99 starting on the 22nd. Google and B&H won't ship these to Canada, so I'll have to find another way if I want one soon.

For people that don't want to wait, you can get the Google Mini now for $29.99 with a little catch.

Add this https://www.bestbuy.ca/en-ca/product/lu ... 92581.aspx? $5.29
Then pick your color of the Google Mini and add it to you cart and it will come to $29.99 + $5.29=$35.28
It's $0.28 more but you could get it now instead of waiting.

EDIT: forgot to mention, Free Shipping as well.

Any idea if Costco.ca will run the sale on Minis, too? I've a gift card lying around and I'd love to use it for this purchase.

Google rolls out everything to do with Google Home delayed in countries outside the U.S., even software features. For example the U.S. had Routines (multi-command sequences with one trigger word/phrase) months before other countries.

It can be an advantage to register with a U.S. Google account, but it's hard these days because Google monitors so much about you, including your physical location.

I bought 2 too many in previous sales...are many folks still wanting/needing these?
Price is more than fair but don't we all have as many as we need by this time??
You have no idea how many people are oblivious to technology advancement. Netflix is still signing up 7 million new users in the last quarter; where were these people hiding in the last 15 years?

To be honest sometimes it's nice to be slow with technology. Some frustrating bugs occur early on. I'm still pulling my hair out sometimes with home automation. Meanwhile, my gift to some family members this year will be some GH minis and some smart plugs and switches. Not enough to do any real automation, but to use their voice to control things that usually works flawlessly. Then, no headaches just some minor improvements to their daily lives lol.

There is also the fact that virtually anything sold in Canada has to have French as an option, so design, packaging and software all have to be available in French. I'm not saying this is the reason for this delay, but it does delay the release of other products in Canada.

There might be restrictions on the gift card as to when you can use it
