    Free swithwicks sample. See link

    You will need to install send me a sample as a skill on your alexa/google assistant so that you can setup a sendmeasample account so that they know where to deliver to and once that is done simply say

    Alexa/Google "Send me a sample for a midweek Smithweeks"

    Only available to Republic of Ireland. You should receive a confirmation email to say its on its way

    My google assistant is sending me free beer. What a time to be alive!


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,540 ✭✭✭JTMan


    After I registered I had to say the following line to Google Home "Hey Google, Ask Send Me a Sample for a midweek Smithweeks" to get it to work.

    Thanks OP.

    Your Google Assistant is probably set up to be in the UK

    Or else it somehow know's what Smithwicks taste's like.

    Same. I'm in Ireland, account in Ireland, card's in Ireland. I changed my language to English (UK) in the home app and it worked once I'd registered.

    Felt like an eejit talking to my Fitbit :pac:

    Thanks OP.

    Done, looking forward to the postman delivering me one solitary can of Smithwicks, we've reached peak lockdown antics.

    Got it to work. Thanks OP.

    As pointed out by someone else, make sure to say "Hey Google, Ask Send Me a Sample for a midweek Smithweeks"


  • Registered Users Posts: 849 ✭✭✭Blanchy90


    Thanks OP I've been meaning to pick up some smithwicks since spotify keeps telling me to drink it haha


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,116 ✭✭✭BigAl81


    I got "Sorry Not available for devices language or country" when I asked my Google Home speaker. My language and country were both set to Ireland!

    To get it to work I did the following (after first creating an account on the Send Me a Sample website)...

    1) I opened the Google Home app on my phone
    2) I changed my language to "English (UK)" (Click on circle on top right, then "Assistant Settings" the "Languages")
    3) Said "Hey Google, Ask Send Me a Sample for a midweek Smithweeks"
    4) Got a message that I need to link my accounts.
    5) Went back to the Send me a Sample website and clicked on the Google Assistant button / logo. This then linked the accounts.
    6) Said "Hey Google, Ask Send Me a Sample for a midweek Smithweeks" and after being asked a few question about my age, it worked!

    Enjoy the free beer! Thanks OP!!

    Nice one OP

  • Registered Users Posts: 4,027 ✭✭✭Roberto_gas

    Did a crawl of their site... either out of stock or 404's.

    You can ask it what samples it currently has, and it just indicates Smithwicks.

    So that's it I reckon.

    Plenty of stock of Smithwicks, 4 of us sharing a house ordered one each, heard they will offer a different brand next month.

    I assume it's just one can and not a crate? :D

    Finally got this working.
    Has anybody ordered anything else?


  • Registered Users Posts: 88 ✭✭seanvox


    Can't seem to get this going on Google Home. I have the language set to UK, but it keeps referring me to the Google Assistant app to complete registration which doesn't seem to be available in Ireland. I have the Home and Google apps but not seeing anything popping up there.

    Any ideas?

    Cheers!


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,749 ✭✭✭Doodah7


    Got this to work straightaway using the Alexa app on my phone.


  • Registered Users Posts: 230 ✭✭robz150


    Worked! Thanks OP

    Same issue. I just switched to Alexa instead. Worked fine.

    It's fiddly and I couldn't really find any instruction anywhere. Here's what I did:

    Open Google Home app.
    Tap my user icon in the top right.
    Open Assistant Settings
    Scroll down and open "Explore"
    Search for "Sample"
    Open "Send me a Sample"
    Set up an account and link it to your Google Home device.
    Ask the feckin thing to send you a sample.

    I feel like an eegit for spending so much time trying to figure it out for a single can of Smithwicks, but if I can help out another eegit it seems a little more worth it at least.

    Thanks for that. Even though I've created an account and linked it in the Google Home app, when I send it to my smart speaker it tells me to create and link an account and come back when I've done that!

    As I said, I got it working fine with Alexa anyway but nonetheless am very irritated I can't get it working with Google!

    I'm all for a free can of Smitwicks, but what data are they taking from your google account? I can't see any reference to it on their website.
    One can of Smithwicks isn't worth a bunch of targeted crap to the door for me.
