[Deal Alert] Get a free Home Mini with purchase of any Nest product priced over $99 from the Google Store and Nest

We’ve been seeing a ton of deals on the Home Mini lately, namely with the $ 29 price drop ’til the end of 2017, the $ 4 deal through Walmart and Google Express, and more. Google even offered them for free with Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL purchases again. Now Nest and Google are handing free Home Minis out to those who purchase a Nest product for over $ 99.

This isn’t as great of a deal for older Nest products that were discounted during Black Friday, but for newer ones like Nest Protect, Thermostat E, or the new Outdoor IQ (when it comes out), this is a nice little incentive.

This man wading into a huge wasps’ nest captures the spirit of Black Friday

Thanks to online shopping, Black Friday has become a much more peaceful time of year, as people no longer need to physically go to a store and charge into a swarm of angry shoppers who are ready to attack at the slightest provocation. But for anyone who misses that anxiety post-Thanksgiving, this video of a man wading into a massive wasps’ nest in Patterson, Louisiana should bring those feelings of panic right back to the front of your mind.

The video was shot by Louisiana beekeeper and professional exterminator Jude Verret, who used a GoPro to film his removal of the truly gigantic nest. Filled with seemingly thousands of yellow jackets, the nest takes up about half of an outdoor shed. Verret wades inside while wearing a full-body…
