If you're a regular reader, you'll be familiar with our US Deal Alert posts. The occasional European deal alerts also pop up as well, but as of yet we've had no UK-specific deal alert (or none that I can find, anyway). That changes now, with the Chromecast Audio going down to £15 at Currys.

The Chromecast is normally £30 in the UK, so £15 is a considerable saving. I'm debating buying one despite not having any speakers to use it with (yet). The deal is only for delivery or click and collect - it's not available off the shelf in a Currys brick-and-mortar store.

If you're not from the UK and are thinking 'what the heck is Currys?', I'll tell you: it's the closest thing the UK has to Best Buy. In fact, Best Buy tried to expand to the UK a few years ago, but pulled out because they couldn't get enough market presence.

So if you're in the UK and want a Chromecast Audio, now's your chance. Delivery is free if you want it within 5 days, but costs variable amounts for next day delivery.
