Hard to find this at a lower price. Good review on Amazon (selling for $249.99):

http://www.amazon.com/Nest-Learni...thermostat

If you haven't taken advantage of the 500 free Reward points with the $10 deal this would could also qualify I assume so in theory you could get 1,000 reward points plus the $25 GC for buying something you need.

Plus 5% cash back if you use your Discover Card.

Good luck.

Umm...$5 less even with tax plus potential 1,000 Rewardzone points which is another $20 so $25. For those where we are charged tax on Amazon it is potentially $45 in Best Buy GC.

Again, this is only for someone who is looking for a Nest 2.0 which I have been and haven't found it lower.

Yeah I think the simpler plan would be to use new Lowe's customer coupon and get $25 off. Thanks for posting though

I guess I just dont understand the need/use for a $200 thermostat.

I have my $14.99 Honeywell setback.
It turns the heat/air up/down when I'm at work, and when I'm asleep.

I looked on a review of the thing, and the only "benefit" I can actually see is that you can control it through a smartphone.

Maybe I'm missing something

It looks cool !!!

Not $200 cool....but cool !

I've been wanting to get this for awhile, I wonder if this is the time. With the "get an extra 500 rz points for spending $10 bucks" deal floating around, should see around $35.00 in gc/rewards. + the 2x rz pts for just purchasing the nest...which'll net an extra 400-500 rz (~$10), bringing it up to $45.00 in rewards/gc.

Can not decide whether or not this device is worth the $200+ asking price. Any one have this and can attest to it?

That's what I did and then my power company gave me another $100 back in a rebate. I also used a cash back site to get another 6% on top of all that.

My thoughts exactly. I've got a Honeywell 7-day programmable thermostat for both floors and they work great for a fraction of the cost.

Aside from aesthetics, I don't understand why this thing sells for $250 and the Honeywell and Filtrete wifi models sell for under a $150. I paid $100 for the Filtrete 3M-50 and it works great.

3m-50 for $64 at HD (if you're lucky, -$10, Lowes coupon). This is a Repub version, for ppl who love to burn money.

i've never owned but from what i understand the nest learns your habits and adjusts accordingly. it learns when you are home and when you are away.
i guess there are some mixed results with that technology but ultimately its about saving money. I suppose the thing could save you enough over three years or so to pay for itself.
