they also had the promo like last month so it could be leftover codes?
That UK listing was just created today and has only been updated since to increase quanity.
Also there seems to be no way to specifiy which country you want the code for, so seems these are all CA generated codes that ended up being usable for Google UK/FR stores.
There is no way these are legit codes, very less likely they cracked the generator, more likely hacked premium accounts or new accounts created with stolen credit cards.

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.
This isn't going to end well.
That guy had about 90 codes to sell.

Yup, seems more and more like that. They'd better not mess it up for people that got the offer legitimately.

It shouldn't be that hard to trace back the generated codes, now that you look at it, this might be the reason they have haulted/slowed down code generation.

UK listing... These are 100% stolen codes!

There are hundreds if not thousands of Spotify accounts being published daily in online forums, and all you have to do is take one over, claim the code, then sell it.

Problem is, once/if the true owner complains, they can always trace the code and it will go back to the person who did the purchase...

I would stay away from this, but that's just me.

So I signed up for the promo yesterday and am still waiting on a code. I just now went and ordered one of those eBay codes and placed the order. When I receive my own code does anyone know if changing the credit card attached to the order will let me order it or will I have to use a different google account?

You will need to use a different google account (and for safety change the CC).

Check the selling history of these guys, most were selling spotify accounts with lifetime primum subscription for just couple of dollars which are 100% phished/stolen accounts or accounts created with phished/stolen credit cards. No wonder they are now using the accounts they are already sitting on to generate the codes.

The best part of this is that so many free GHM's are going to be given away and flooded all over resale channels that it's going to bring the sell price of the product to obscenely low levels, making signing up for the $10 cost hardly worth the extra effort it will take to sell the thing. Those hoping to sign up to make a straight flip at a decent profit will be disappointed, the $80 list price of the product is no longer relevant.
