Google Home Mini

Google US Store is making life difficult for many people outside of the US that are trying to get the Google Home Mini for US$29 (S$40).

As the original retail price was US$49 (S$66), the 40% discount makes it hard not to buy it for fun.

Four and a half years after the introduction of FREE AmazonGlobal Saver Shipping, it seems this program is coming to an end.
