For today only, customers at the UK Google Store can score a sitewide 20% discount by using the code GOOGLEBDAY at checkout.

Yes, it's Google's birthday, and to celebrate it's offering some rather nice (and fairly rare) price cuts on products such as the Google Pixel 5 smartphone, Chromecast dongles, and a whole range of Nest smart home gadgets. We've included a quick list of the eligible products we've found, as well as the savings amounts, just down below.

Safe to say this is a very good chance to pick up some of the best smart home hubs in the business and more than a small discount on an Android flagship. Google rarely discounts its products via its official store page so this is definitely one to jump on before it's too late.

The Google Store is also offering 'additional' savings on select products - namely the Google Pixel 4a, Nest Audio, and Chromecast (among others) via some 'hidden presents' on the site. Needless to say, we haven't been able to find them... yet. Currently, the clue is 'check the presents', which suggests it's something to do with the presents image on the main offer page - although clicking it takes you back to the main Google Store page. Any ideas? Let us know!
