In the world of smart speakers and smart displays, it often seems like a two-horse race between Google and Amazon. But that's only sort of true. You can get Google Assistant and Alexa built into devices from brands like Bose, Sonos and JBL. Why would you leave the Google reservation and try one of those others? Well, JBL's Link View smart speaker is similar to the Google Nest Hub, but has a slightly larger screen (8 inches rather than 7) and premium, JBL-engineered speakers. It's regularly priced at $299, but right now you can nab the JBL Link View for just $99 when you add it to your cart at Verizon. 

You don't need to be a Verizon subscriber; just add it to your cart and complete the purchase. You should see the price drop from $299 to $99 when you get to the checkout page (if the deal is still running).

The JBL Link View can do anything that an ordinary  Google Home device can do, such as controlling smart home devices and responding to commands. But the Link View is really all about its sound system. In his JBL Link View review, CNET's Andrew Gebhart said that "the JBL Link View sounds great playing music, particularly with bass-heavy tracks," and that it has "the best sound quality of all current smart displays equipped with Google Assistant." 

In the past we've seen these Verizon promotions expire without warning, so be sure to check the final, in-cart price before you complete the transaction.
