Not the slickest of deals, but the best one I could get today.
Target has a promotion where if you spend more than $79 on a Google / Nest device, they give a Nest mini for free.
They currently have the Nest hub max for $229, but will price match Home Depot which is selling it for $199. Even after the price match, they will honor the promotion. I paid using my red card, so got 5% off (basically saving me tax).
