Walmart is offering Google Home starter kits for under $50

With so many different smart home sales going on this holiday season, it can be easy to go overboard with your purchases. Amazon has led the pack with smart security systems, video doorbells, and Amazon Echo devices — offering great prices for anyone wanting to go all out. Though these large smart home bundles are quite impressive, they aren’t that helpful for shoppers only looking for the essentials. Which is why Walmart is offering steep discounts on the only Google Home products you really need.

If you’re hoping to save big on Google Home devices before the holiday deals come to an end, there’s no better time than right now. These starter bundles work great as Christmas gifts for parents, or pretty much anyone looking to get their smart home started — with the added benefit of being gentle on your wallet.

Google Smart TV Kit — $49

Smart home integration only works well if you have a smart speaker within earshot at any given time. If you only have a Google Home device in your living room, you’re going to have a hard time interacting with it from a different room. Which is why you need more than one Google Home Mini if you’re house or apartment is larger than just a single living space.

Normally priced at $78, this 2-pack of Google Home devices is available for only $50 at Walmart.
