There is a fantastic deal on the entire Facebook Portal range this week, just in time for the Labor Day sales. The offer is that you get $50 off if you buy two Portal screens at the same time – which makes a great idea if you want to stay better connected to family and friends with this easy to use video call device. You can keep one for yourself - or give away two to relatives that you wish you saw and talked to more regularly.
The good part is that you don't need to have the same Portal model. Pick from the $129 8-inch Portal Mini, or go large with the 15-inch Portal+. Or pick the 10-inch standard issue Portal - or go for the device that turns your TV into your Portal portal. The choice is yours, as is the color – and the two devices can even be sent to separate addresses without any additional cost
The Facebook Portal is best known as an easy way to enjoy video calls with friends and family. The service is set up to use the Facebook Messenger service, allowing to make video calls to your contacts - through a large LCD screen that can sit on your kitchen or desk – or get carried from room to room. The big screen is an appeal for group chats – but it is also really popular with people who don't have a smartphone or a laptop. So if you have an elderly relative, say, who misses out on family video chats – this is the perfect device for getting them included in the conversation.

But what people don't realize, is that the Facebook Portal is a great digital photo frame – giving you a screen that can display your favorite photographs when you are not using the device for video calls.
It will allow you to make calls via Messenger or WhatsApp, but also works as an Alexa device. That means you can use this Portal to check on home security cameras, to play music, listen to the radio - and a whole lot more
Start the conversation - by buying a pair of Portal screens. Use this for facetiming friends and family. Turn it into a portable gallery to display your favorite family snaps, or your best photos. And use Alexa to keep you entertained and informed. You get to choose two different devices to suit each person's needs - and they can be sent to different addresses at no additional charge. Discount automatically applied on checkout.
