Free Smitwicks Red Ale sample with Sendmeasample (Google Assistant or Alexa required)

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

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.

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.

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

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!!
