Its sad that they used Canada Post to deliver! I checked Google Maps and it was a 19 minute WALK from their place. They could've just got Uber Eats instead of CP to deliver it lol
you can also walk 19 mins there and pick it up yourself!

They must be really back logged. Ordered mine 2-3 days ago and it still hasn't shipped.

You must think so highly of yourself that you care so much that google selling your question to some company when you said “hey google what’s the weather like today?”...
You are absolutely incorrect. Maybe for the weather it's a bit more complex to explain, but for example using routines like "OK Google Turn off all the lights" every night at a specific time or "OK Google good night" for a night time routine, you are giving them data of when you sleep. And while YOU are insignificant, having 1,000 Google homes within a same city and 70% of them tend to sleep from the hours of 9-10:30 for example, that is very significant and valuable information for advertisers. Data mining is very real. Big Data and analytics play a big part of advertising and big business.

You sure about that ?

I signed up on 10th April for premium account, then used the link to the offer. When I login it says "Thank you so much! You've already successfully registered your interest in this offer.", but no email confirmation with code. When clicked on Check Availability it says "We're sorry but you're not able to redeem at this moment."

Is anyone else facing this long delay in getting email confirmation with code?

Just wait for the "we're sorry but we ran out of stock" email in 3 days from now

You're pretty clueless if you think they're not doing this. They listen to everything and display ads based on your conversations and sell your data to others.

And they can't deduce the same information by mining smartphone activity records?

And they aren't doing that on your phone? tablet or PC or whatever other connected device you ever used (including the device you just used to make the post above)?
