Bose Soundlink Mini II Special Edition (Luxe Silver) $101.97 Delivered @ Bose Australia (Hack Required)

6101
HOLIDAY15SPEAKER20

Black out of stock

I know this post has been flying around last 2 days.

Some of you have issue with over-charged $157 instead of $143. I'm struggling with it either. I bought one and they charged me $157 (but I already make a claim through Paypal)

Today I try again with Code SPEAKER20, but i don't know what it does. Price now even goes down to $101.97.

Please note: voucher codes are case sensitive.

Method 1

What I did. I install Honey add-on into Chrome, when adding speaker to cart and use Honey, It drops down to $101.97 by itself. Wondering if this is price error. Pay with PayPal.

Here is my proof

https://ibb.co/hdqnP7f

Method 2

Open two tabs to the deal. In tab 1, click Buy Now to add product and go to cart. Switch to tab 2 and go to cart. Enter coupon code HOLIDAY15 and apply. Switch back to tab 1, enter coupon code SPEAKER20 and apply. Proceed to checkout and pay with PayPal. (Thanks to OO.)

Happy Hunting everyone

  •

    Hi all, does anyone have a trick to getting the live chat widget visible on the site? Thanks for your help.

    • +1 vote

      I'm on chat right now and there wasn't any wait at all. I just refreshed the contact us page again and the button is gone. All I can say is persistence is key.

      I spoke to Charm too who was lovely.

    My case (similar to many others) - Original paypal order issue. Then called on Friday and placed manual order with same price. Credit card showed pending and after waiting till today with no email confirmation etc called them only to find out that phone order also ran into issues. So did it all over again - provided payment details and got an order reference number (I now see that its the same order # which was in the "issue email"). Checked my Credit card online and did not see any transaction from Bose for last week but today's one is showing as Pending. Now will check daily to make sure it's posted and does not drop off. This was for Bose 300 speaker.
    Big thing is that I was connected with associate as soon as I called - no wait time today for me.

    EDIT - Want to ask this question to anyone who has both Soundlink Mini II special edition and 300 - which one is better?

    •  

      The same happening here, I have to create order again and again. I can see the credit card payment showing pending and they are saying order is not moving for some reason. Oh man, with all this stress, is this worth it?

  •  

    got mine today, sounds much better than my JBL charge 3!

    •  

      I also have a JBL Charge 3.To be honest, I actually prefer my charge 3 as the the bass from the bose gets too heavy and muddy for certain songs where else my charge 3 sounds more controlled..maybe there's something wrong with my Bose speaker? I spent like an hour comparing the two side by side.

      Having said that the bose vocal sound better and clearer when there's no bass around. But overall prefer my charge 3. Maybe I need to get use listening to the bose more.

      •  

        Bose definitely goes muddy when there's too much bass but it's good on songs with not a lot going on.

        •  

          Yeah damm,thought there was something wrong with my Bose unit considering all the good online reviews. I've already update the firmware and bass is still muddy. To make things worse , Im not usually a bass person, usually prefer the vocals and mids/high in music. If only there's a bose app to ease the bass level…

          •  

            @username999: Can you not just get a music app and mess around with the equaliser?

            •  

              @montorola: I stream with spotify app these days since its so covienient to listen to a variety of songs so never play around with any equalisers. I do however have my own collections of offline songs which I can play using Poweramp pro. Might give it a try and tweak when I can be bothered.

          •  

            @username999: I know when I tell people this they think I'm crazy, but when I bought my Bose headphones, I was super disappointed because it was just such bad quality when I turned up the volume. But literally, over time…they just got better and now they're the best headphones. I listen to all sorts of music and the headphones awesome.

            •  

              @Cloudie: I own a pair of QC35 (1st Gen) and love the quality which totally convinced me to get this. I actually use the QC35 more than my desktop senn HD650 since its so light, portable and comfy. Also love the sound signiture of it. Wish I can say the same about their speaker counterpart. Will give it more time to adjust to my ears lol.

              •  

                @username999: Hi, how do you think is the sound quality of the Bose SoundLink Mini II compared to Logitech Z623 speakers?

      •  

        I'm definitely more of a fan of the JBL cylinder shape/design, which provides more of a "360"sound.

        This is my first non-JBL product, and I have to remember to elevate its position rather than keep it on a low bench (tall bloke here).

  •  

    Mine got delivered today. White version. I didn’t have to call. $101 deal. Ordered 10 Dec 19 at 2:20pm.

    Not sure how, mine arrived today, paid for one but there were two in box!!! Nice deal!

    • +1 vote

      Aahhh…that's where mine ended up…I've paid twice but still nuttin'!

  •  

    Mine got delivered today also.

    I just ordered and didn't do anything. Didn't get an email etc. Just chilled and it got delivered.

  •  

    Yep same, ordered a few, didn't bother hitting up chat/support with more load, all of them came today. Pretty happy since it's 50% off and Bose products are always a joy to use.

  •  

    For those who tracked via Aus Post app, what does the "sent by" say? An unknown tracking popped up today evening but it doesn't say Bose.

    •  

      Sent by Bose

    • +2 votes

      mine was "Sent By DISTRIBUTION SERVICES"

      •  

        Same here.

      •  

        Thanks. Yes mine said the same. Now it's with StarTrak which means I am getting later tonight @ Brisbane (reordering was done yesterday morning).

    •  

      My first one was distribution services with starTrack, second one from Bose with Australia Post on parcel post

  •  

    My Friday re-ordered Home 300 got delivered yesterday. Nice and smart speaker, sounds bigger than it looks.
    Thanks to OP for sharing the deal and thanks to Bose for honoring the price.

  •  

    Just called now, paid off to wait a few days, got through instantly. All sorted and got 2 on the way before Christmas.

    •  

      Good On you. I called 5th time today to find out they mess up with my shipping address with the Billing address (Putting Billing address suburb in shipping address). I have to wait again and monitoring it. I don't think I will have mine before Christmas. :(

  •  

    Unsure how anyone got their without chasing it up

    Has to chase it up like 4 times. 3 times was all BS excuse until the fourth when I said I'll stay on the phone till the payment is processed and surprisingly.. they were suddenly able to do it right away.

    But have missed the boat for Christmas thought so.. oh well.

    Read that the bass isn't the best for it so let's see if I shouldn't have bothered.

    •  

      Yeah. I am surprised at that too. They screwed up my original order. Then they screwed up the cc payment. It worked on the third go.

      Haven't got mine yet… Expected delivery on 23rd or 24th.

      •  

        It came today. Australia Post is working hard

  •  

    This speaker (Mini II) is brilliant. I can't believe they honoured the deal (I have the Honey app installed). Surprised that this speaker has been updated as I thought it was the unchanged model from years back. Thumbs up to Bose!!

    •  

      What kind of music are you playing on yours

  • +4 votes

    Yup, like others. Ordered 1 without thinking. Sat back, feet up. No calls, no panicking, no online chat.
    Arrived today.
    Thanks OP

      Haha +1. Good things come to those who wait.

  •  

    Ordered yesterday as they sent email for alternate payment method…got delivered today!! amazing!!

  •  

    these sound incredible for the small unit it is

  •  

    Mine arrived today. Thanks OP. An amazing unit.

    •  

      Today? On sunday? Where are u?

      •  

        Yeah. I’m in Merewether. Btw thumbs up to whoever downvoted me 👍

  •  

    Was there any firmware upgrade for the Soundlink Mini II SE? If so has anyone updated and see any improvements to stock fw? might stick with the initial fw if there's no issues

    •  

      Update 1.0.8 fixes an issue with the speakerphone functionality when declining an incoming call from the speaker that would result in a loud noise.

  •  

    I just got off the phone and they confirmed my speaker is on its way. I haven't received the Tracking email yet but the customer service officer assured me it is dispatched from their warehouse and expected delivery date is 27 Dec. Merry Christmas to you all~

  •  

    Had to call up again today as original rep didn't reprocess as they mentioned they were going to do.

    Got through immediately today and new rep managed to reprocess as should have been done previously.

  •  

    Got the delivery today and the charge has disappeared. What are the chances they will charge me again?

  •  

    Anyone in Perth thinking of returning theirs, please PM me before you do.

  •  

    Anyone having problems connecting the home 300 to google assistance? It wont connect here

    •  

      Bose is known for its buggy software - my bose soundbar also had issues - updating the firmware made it less buggy but sometimes wifi connection is dropping.

  • +1 vote

    In case some reads this in the future. This model doesn't come with a wall plug or a charging base. Only a USB c cable.

    I am not sure why they go rid of this as there are the pins for charging pins..

    •  

      Yeah, Special and Limited editions, two different contents. Lack of charge dock is slight annoyance but not deal breaker for me.

      I'm more surprised at the lack of after market purchase abilities for it. :( Plenty for the round revolve speaker :(

  •  

    A bit disappointed with the 300. The google integration is poor (probably my fault, should have researched more). Google doesn’t see it as a speaker.

    Only work as assistant (asking questions)

    •  

      It doesn’t work with google music not with amazon music

      •  

        Same here. Now I connect it to a google home mini which I hoped to replace as an external bluetooth speaker. How ironic. Getting it for $130 is probably the only reason for me not to return it.

    •  

      Just curious as to what we are missing on the Bose 300? I can ask google assistant to play spotify to the 300 speaker, via the 300 or my phone. The speaker also shows up on my Home app. What other integration is missing?

      •  

        The speaker also shows up on my Home app

        As a speaker, or just an icon? Can you add it a speaker group?

        Asking to play from google music or amazon music won’t work.

        •  

          Haven't tried to play from either as have no subscription, will try once home. Not entirely sure what you meant by the difference between "a speaker or just an icon?" :)

          It's listed as a device in a room, and when selected it goes into device settings. In settings, under the General heading, it has Name, Home and Room. There's also an option to unlink Bose Music (app that comes with the Bose Speaker). It also states that it is connected through Bose Music, Manufacturer, and Device type: speaker. So is this an icon or a speaker?

          •  

            @assailantsky: I meant icon to explain that it is not a speaker as such. You cannot up/down the volume or add it to a speaker group. You cannot turn it off neither.

            Using assistant you can say “turn off bose”, tho

            •  

              @snvl: Thanks for pointing out the above. Now I know the limitations of this speaker. It is fine for my usage so far and the sound is nice and clear, and loud enough, so can't complain for the price we paid! IMO it is worth the premium paid over the Soundlink.

    •  

      Another one: can’t broadcast from it. It says “there are no more speakers.

      But, if I broadcast from google mini then The bose plays the broadcast message.

  •  

    A stack of these on Gumtree "New in Box", I'm guessing that they're all OzBargain Specials.

    Anyone sold theirs?

    •  

      FB is getting flooded with them as well.

    •  

      Sold mine after listening a few times - honestly just prefer the sound from my JBL Flip 3, Bose bass sounded too forced for my taste

  •  

    Long story short, Bose let me take the products as per the pricing errored price.

    Called them on the 6th and 7th of Dec to do this and could not get through after 1 hour of waiting time..lol

    Called them again today - Got my mini @ 101.97 and 300 @ 159.97.

    Disappointed to hear that i cant really use the 300 as google speaker?… but its ok a bargain deal anyway.

    Equipped with more than enough speaker for my life.. thanks OP and BOSE.

  •  

    Mine Finally delivered today and now it is charging. It's heavier than it looks. Bose is all about Bass~~~.

    Thanks Op.

    •  

      The bass on this are non existence.

      Mid Range and all are clear and very crisp but very disappointed in the bass section.

      Won't have paid for full price, that's for sure.

  •  

    anyone got their refund yet?

    •  

      I think many are in the situation they are still waiting to be charged for the order they received

      •  

        Yeah. They did not charge me for 2 of my Soundlink Mini II

  •  

    if anyone in syd has one they don’t like pm me thanks :)

  •  

    Uh oh boys we made them close all their physical stores :p
