Spotify Premium Customers Left Without Free Google Minis After Giveaway
| Last updated
Hundreds of Spotify customers have expressed their disappointment on social media after being left without a free Google Nest.
Earlier this month, the music streaming service launched a huge campaign which really got people talking - it was giving away the free Bluetooth speakers to Premium customers.
The offer meant that customers were offered a free Google Nest Mini, which is worth £49, if they had the right subscription to Spotify.
Both new and existing customers were eligible, but the offer was withdrawn after just 36 hours thanks to huge demand.
But nearly a month later, some still haven't received them and they've taken to Twitter to complain.
One unsatisfied customer wrote: "Anyone actually get their 'free' Spotify speaker then? Mine seems to have been lost in the post."
Another tweeted: "Did my Spotify speaker get lost in the post or something?"
The offer was also available in Canada, with someone else explaining their experience so far: "So a couple weeks ago Spotify said they were sending me some google nest speaker, like cool story guys let me hold my breath.
"I just found the tracking details in my Gmail and according to Canada Post it's being delivered today. Do we believe this and why is the answer no?"
Someone else commented a message of positivity, saying: "Anyone else who got the Google speaker from Spotify, mine's came yesterday! Think there has been a delay but they are being delivered."
One guy thought he'd been tricked, writing: "Did anyone actually receive that free speaker Spotify were offering? Or have I been had again?"
People even asked Spotify what the craic is with the speakers:
@Spotify what happened to the free speakers, I registered for one but never got one?

The offer was on at the start of the month, with the website saying that 'all eligible new and existing Spotify Premium individual, Family, Duo and Student master account holders in the UK' can get the deal.
There was a choice of four colours - chalk, charcoal, coral or sky, after entering a delivery address, it zeroed down from £49.99 ($66.90) in the basket and that was that.
At the time of writing, Spotify don't seem to have addressed the claims on any of its social media channels. LADbible has contacted the streaming service for comment.
