If you car is listed here [idatalink.com] this unit includes most of the parts and labor that would be required for install.

If you call a store for a quote, make sure you point them to the webpage where the Daily Deal is and make sure they know that it already comes with basic labor, a bypass module, and labor to wire that module. This is an uncommon promotion, so no installers will immediately know what unit you are talking about or what is/isn't included.

The most you should be looking at for any vehicle listed on that website for install is an extra $10 for a ball-bearing switch and sometimes an extra $30-40 for the trunk release (Assuming the vehicle has power locks and a power trunk release already). All cars will be assessed a $5 shop fee that covers misc connectors, tape, and disposal.

Free Geek Squad installation, a $159.98 value, when you buy this discounted package. Package includes remote start system, universal immobilizer bypass module and Geek Squad installation. Total package savings of $259.99.

Additional charges
A materials charge of $5 per vehicle will be assessed at time of installation. Standard installation does not include any vehicle-specific parts or accessories (for example, relays, etc.). For a remote start and keyless entry installation, these parts typically cost $10–$300 but will vary based upon your specific vehicle and the remote start and keyless entry system you are having installed. Additional charges for vehicle-specific parts and any non-standard installation will be assessed upon completion of the installation. If you'd like more detailed information regarding installation on your specific vehicle, find a store with an installation center and speak directly with a Geek Squad Autotech. Your Geek Squad Autotech will provide an estimate to you prior to performing work that requires an additional charge and any additional parts. See terms and conditions for further details.

Typical bestbuy. Mark something down $200 but hide it in the details so when you show up you pay full retail. Bankrupcy will be a blessing for this company.
