Best Buy is hosting a new promotion that will give you a free Google Nest Hub if you purchase a Nest Hello video doorbell, or a free Amazon Echo Show 5 when you buy a Ring Video Doorbell 2.

Neither video doorbell is discounted, so the Nest Hello costs $229.99 while the Ring Video Doorbell costs $199.99. But smart displays are great as far as freebies go, especially since they serve as good companions to smart doorbells. Whether you buy the Google product or the one from Amazon, you’ll be able to use the smart display to see who’s ringing the doorbell, and talk with visitors via two-way audio. The displays also make for good digital photo frames and smart alarm clocks.

To get a free Echo Show 5, add the Ring Video Doorbell 2 (or the more expensive Ring Video Doorbell Pro) to your cart from this page. The smart display comes only in the charcoal color.

For the Nest Hello doorbell, add it to your cart and you’ll see a note in your cart above the total that says you get a free Google Nest Hub. It only comes in the chalk color; as with the Echo Show 5, you can’t change the color.
