With Father's Day just a few weeks away, retailers are starting their Father's Day Sales, and Google is one of those retailers. Starting today, you can get discounts on a variety of products from the Google Store. Google Cardboard is getting a $5 discount for Father's Day. Which brings the price down to $10. Not a bad price for a piece of cardboard that is also used as a virtual reality viewer. Chromecast and Chromecast Audio are also getting $5 knocked off of their prices, which drops them to $30 each. At their normal price of $35, they were definitely worth picking up. Now at a discount, they are almost an impulse buy.
The Nexus 6P is also getting a discount of about $50. That brings the 32GB model to $449, the 64GB to $499 and the 128GB to $599. Definitely a great price for a smartphone that is still one of the best out there. Not to mention it is the only currently available smartphone that will support Google's new VR platform, Daydream. The Nexus 6P was made by Huawei last year and launched on Android 6.0 Marshmallow. It is already running the Android N preview, and will definitely be one of the first to get the update later this summer.
Google has also knocked $30 off of the Acer Chromebook R11, and $20 off of their OnHub Router. Not huge discounts, but both will make great gifts for Dad this Father's Day. The OnHub Router is Google's own router made by either ASUS or TP-Link (there are two models). This router may be one of the easiest routers to use, which makes it a great gift for Dad. It can also be controlled from the app on your smartphone. Making it easy to allow guests access to the network and so much more.
Google hasn't said how long these discounts will be available for, but they'll likely be going on until Father's Day happens which is June 19th. Now if the OnHub, Acer Chromebook R11, Google Cardboard, Chromecast, Chromecast Audio or Nexus 6P aren't your cup of tea, Google does also have a slew of other gift ideas available. All of which are also great gifts for Father's Day.
