‘Tis the time of year when thieves are stealing packages from door steps. Since I send and receive a lot of packages all year round, I decided to invest in a Ring doorbell after I saw local packages are even being stolen in my so-called-safe rural community.

I did a lot of research on both the Ring and Nest doorbells plus quizzed my colleagues on which they prefer, then I watched sales. Ring won as being the most affordable. And Amazon recently acquired Ring so their technology is bound to get even better.
I now get an alert on my phone everytime there is motion at my front door. I can open up the app and see who's there, no matter where I am in the world. There is a slight delay in my two-way-communication which I've attributed to my internet download/upload speed (rural community, remember?).
I opted in to pay for the Protect Basic Plan, which is $3 per month or $30 annually, so I have access to the recorded videos where I can review, share and save Ring videos. But there is a free Ring Protect Plan included with all Ring devices at no additional cost.
When I saw posts on social media start promising a FREE Ring doorbell, I had to investigate if the offer was legit. And it is!
The offer is simply the Ring Referral Program.
Ring is creating social media buzz to get more people to sign up for their Free Neighbor's App. This app lets people share photos and videos and suspicious activity in their neighborhood.
You do NOT have to have a Ring doorbell to sign up for the app. That's the best part as then when friends and family use your referral link to sign up, you'll both get $10 credit to use on Ring products. Refer enough people and you'll have enough credit to get your own FREE Ring doorbell!
- Click to here to install the Free Neighbor's App (available for iOS and Android).
- Once downloaded, refer your friends and family to do the same (you'll receive a link to refer people in the app)! Your friends and family do not need to live in your neighborhood to participate.
- You do need to turn on 2 factor authorization and enable locations to get your credit, and tell your friends and family to do the same for the credit to count.
- That's it! Easy peasie, mac ‘n cheesie.
Since I already have the doorbell, I'm saving up my credits for a security camera.
