at the top it says "it looks like you're not eligible for that offer" about the mini. It's because I'm on the trial still for another day right? Does that mean i have to wait to April 12 to reserve the mini?
Yes and Yes.
If you are an existing subscriber to a free or discounted trial for any Paid Subscription, you are not eligible for this Supplement Offer. You may register your interest in receiving a Promotional Code (subject to availability) at the end of your trial period if you become a paying subscriber to Spotify Premium.

I always see this type of post... man, do you own a smartphone? Because that is also a device that always listens to you. Also unlike the Google Home Mini it's not plugged into a wall but taken everywhere with you. Also has other sensors that can abuse your privacy like cameras and a GPS. And now that there's a speaker put in your home that's when you draw the line?

Also getting a free Home Mini which is usually $80 is not downvote worthy because of privacy concerns. If you're not going to use it you have a free gift valued at $80 to give away... no downsides.
You have a good point about the smartphones, but it is still very suspicious that Google has been selling this product for absurdly low prices for a while now (they go for amazing discounts every now and then), and now they are damn near free with this offer. Over 110,000 people viewed this thread alone so I can imagine how much people got this just from RFD alone... I HIGHLY doubt Google is benefitting from this purely from only spending $10 on Spotify. With the features and technology used to create this you're looking at around $10-15 to make this product. Google Mini technically could have more privacy concerns than smartphones too depending on how you set it up (if you set it up to control all your smart-devices, house appliances etc....)

No GHM in charcoal. Is it worth to wait or just order in chalk?
I said just order it ....I think the chance charcoal being restocked is low

Might be a stupid question, but Spotify has a 14 day refund policy, so would there be an issue if you ordered your google home mini, received it in 5-6 days, and then refunded your premium membership?

If you sign up now and try to go premium, it will try to give you a 1 month trial. But if you're on the trial you won't be able to get the mini (at least not until a month later)..

So instead, go thru the link in the very first post, and it will let you pay for the first month immediately (no trial) and you can get your mini.

First time i had to actively reject a free trial.

Hmm this is super tempting but I already have a GHM and in an average 1 BR unit, 1 GHM is already one too many

If they had the GHM in Aqua color though, I would buy this blindly

Great deal! Just got a code.

I actually like chalk but I already got one. So I think I'll wait a bit to see if charcoal become available.
