When a person is not breathing, permanent brain damage begins after 4 minutes and death in 6 minutes after that. Can you count on help arriving before that time? Learning proper CPR techniques is easy and you can learn it in 30 minutes at CPR Test Center.

Buy a GH Mini @ WM for $24...Maybe???

"The Mini will reportedly ship around October 19th for $49, and you might not even have to pay that much. You see, Walmart has an tie-in with Google Express that cuts $25 off the price of orders until January 15th. That means you could be paying as little as $24"

ME!   
Bean bag!?
I thought it looked more like a French macaroon, especially the coral colored one.  Google it  :)
Definitely what it (may) lack in looks it makes up for in smarts  ;D

I just ordered my GH Mini.  Anyone else?  Mike? Got the black :( since it's replacing the Dot that sits on top of the Keurig in the kitchen...we don't drink much coffee around here.

I went to google express  website and found walmart, but it only shows the full size home, The mini is available on walmart.com but I don't want to preorder it from there if there's a way to get it cheaper. Unless this deal is over already? can someone post a direct link to it?

there are possibilities, 1. the price will not be available until it is actually released or  2. you might have to order it through your google home walmart voice shopping.  but then it could always be fake news  :-)

Oh ye of little faith.

Look for the Google Express logo on the left side of the page.
I canceled my order.  I'm going to wait it out so I can get it for about 1/2 price (sigh)
I called GE when I couldn't find the Mini on the GE/Walmart site.  I was told the problem
is "you won't see 'pre-order' items in the mall.  You'll find it when it becomes available".
Later tonight I'll try Chat to see if I get the same answer.

Patience, folks.  All the latest gizmos will be cheaper by Nov -- it's Xmas shopping season soon!!!  Google will have a big sale when Amazon does.

I chatted with Google Express.  Here is the reply I got when I told her/him that GHM shows up on Walmart.com  for pre-order but not on Google Express/Walmart.  So now I have two different answers.  Never fails! 
----------------------------------------------------
Unfortunately, there is a bug in the Google Express system right now that is preventing shoppers from pre-ordering the Home Mini through us. However, so long as your Home Mini is purchased from us Walmart or Walmart.com, is activated by January 15th , and you link your Google Express account to your Walmart.com account through the Google Home app, you will still receive the $25 coupon.

The $25 coupon is not for the purchase of the Google Home, but rather is for your next Google Express Walmart purchase.

...and then there's this from andriodpolice.com saying they were incorrect to say it was $25 off a GHM, rather $25 off your next purchase.  So it was a tiny bit "fake" news ;)

oh well, google and walmart will need to get their act together if they want to sell through express.

RENEGADE:  Watch the following Youtube video to the 17 second mark.  Of course you can watch the whole thing if want but it gets offensive.  Im not the only one that thinks GHM looks more like a delicate French macaroon than a bean bag  ;D
