Spotify Offers Free Smart Speaker

Ever wanted a smart home device? Well now’s your chance.

Spotify has announced that from now until the end of the year, any user that upgrades or continues their family plan will get a coupon for a free Google Home Mini.  A Spotify Premium Family Account will run you $14.99 USD and can support up to 6 separate users as long as they have the same home address.

The Google Home Mini has a retail price of $49.99 USD.  It has mostly positive reviews and incorporates well with the Google products you may use, such as YouTube and Chromecast. It can also interact with some smart appliances as well such as lights and TV’s.

Overall, if you like listening to Spotify or need a platform for offline music during road trips, you should probably take up this offer.  Even if you want to cancel the subscription after one month, you still save $35 on the Google Home Mini.

Deal of the Day: Taco Bell

During the World Series for baseball, Taco Bell ran a promotion that if a base was stolen, everybody would get 1 free Doritos® Locos Tacos. Red Sox’s outfielder, Mookie Betts, did just that during Game 1 of the series.

Taco Bell announced that Nov. 1st would be the free taco give out.  In order to claim your free taco, you have to visit the restaurant from the hours of 2-6 PM. Alternatively, you can download their app on your phone and use the deal through there as well, which lasts all day long.

There are different levels of hotness for the locos taco, so don’t be afraid to skip out because you think it’ll be too hot to handle. Go see your local Taco Bell before the clock runs out.

Free Xbox/PlayStation Games In October

With the monthly competition between Sony and Microsoft for subscriptions, both companies try to give gamers what they want.  For Microsoft, the release of Battlefield V comes out in November, so having Battlefield 1 as a free game will no doubt bring more gamers to Xbox this month.

Sony’s marketing for this month is a little out of place time-wise.  Friday the 13th is a horror game associated with the October month, so technically they’re only a few days late. Laser League is a smaller game, but so simplistic that it is hard to put down.

Check out the list below:

Xbox One:

  • Battlefield 1
  • Race the Sun

Xbox 360:

  • Assassin’s Creed
  • Dante’s Inferno

PS4

  • Friday the 13th: The Game
  • Laser League

PS3

  • Master Reboot
  • The Bridge

PS Vita

  • Rocketbirds 2: Evolution
  • 2064 Read Only Memories

Offer: Google Movie Quality Update For Free

Google announced this week that movies that were purchased in the Google Play Store will be automatically upgraded to 4k when it is available for that movie.  It does not matter if it was purchased in SD or HD. 

Originally the price for a 4K movie would cost in the $25-35 range, while HD and SD would be much cheaper.  As per all new technologies, it was expected to have a higher price point for 4K movies when most people don’t have a 4K TV to support it.  Now that the market has adjusted a little, Google announced they will be lowering the price for new 4K movies as well.  They anticipate the costs to be between $12 and $20.

Because most people don’t own 4K Screens, it will look better than SD, but roughly the same quality as HD. Either way, Google is looking out for the future and allowing people to access content they already paid for.  Thanks Google!
