So iphones in China should be 5x cheaper than the US? but they're not.
You're taking what I wrote out of context and I'm not one to discuss back and forth.

China isn't US or Canada and there's obviously far more factors at play.

I did notice there's weirdly many sellers now on ebay selling these codes. A lot of them claim to have 10+ codes in stock. How do they have so many codes anyway? Most of us who ordered through Spotify are freakin' backordered and some of these guys have 20+ codes?
It's more suspicious than it is weird, clearly, these codes were harvested earlier in the promo.

I didn't think of that either. I really hope it's not that.

Don’t sweat it. If google cancels your order just open a dispute/chargeback.

That's what I mean, it's super suspicious. But it's too late now since I already ordered. Either my google order goes through or it doesn't.
If they do cancel your order, does anyone know when they do it? It shows estimated delivery is may 17-18!! Over a month.

I noticed some a seller or two on ebay that have these 100% off codes also list CA/FR/UK in the title. Are these codes really interchangeable with France and the UK?
Trying to figure out how someone can have so many codes. If they are interchangeable, maybe they got them from Spotify UK or France.

I was ignoring this post thinking it must be only for new subscribers. I already have a Google home mini and I was automatically subscribed to Spotify when the trial expired. Now, I am reserved for Goole Home Mini. Sweet!

Thanks a lot OP.

Or maybe they've figured out a code generator of some sort. Maybe unlikely, but I also find it strange that people would create dozens of Spotify accounts just for a small profit.

People were not able to sign up for the offer when their spotify region was set to the US (vs. Canada), so unless FR/UK are running a similar promo there is no way to get codes in these regions, but there is also a chance that the Canada generated codes turned out to be redeemable in Google FR/UK as well.
With that said, no matter how you flip it, these codes are generated once per account, someone offering 20 codes have 20 different Spotify premium accounts, seller already owning so many accounts doesn't make sense, seller creating so many accounts just to get the code and sell it below cost making even less sense.

There's definitely something strange about it.

Look at this UK seller.
https://www.ebay.ca/itm/Google-Home-Min ... SwcOtcrveM

Sold over 50 in the last 24 hours alone and still more than 10+ available.
Even says in the description "This will work only in Canada, France and the UK.

they also had the promo like last month so it could be leftover codes?

Could it be Google dumping this thing. No way I would pay $80. I got a pair from Best Buy for $40 and gave to my children as Christmas gift.

People are selling on eBay for $10! Might get it there so I don't need to deal with Spotify?
