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

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.

Just get the nest 1 with the lowes coupon and it's only $180. Nest 1 uses the same software and unless you have an expensive 2 stage cooling system (which break down much faster btw) it is the same unit as nest 2.

Also, the fact that you simply set it and forget it makes this thing worth it alone, plus it will pay itself off by sensing when you leave the house as well.

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.
I guess people by similar items for different reasons. I bought a Wi-fi thermostat so I could practically and easily monitor and control the temp. In our beach home which is 85 miles away. If it weren't for the ability to remotely adjust the temp. In advance of our arrival or adjust remotely if I forgot after we left, a $30-40 programmable one would easily cover all the bases for efficiency.

How can it sense when you're gone? My thermostats are in the hallway on both floors. If I'm in the kitchen or my bedroom or my study, how does it know if I've left the house or just gone in another room (which still needs climate control since I'm home)?

Exactly.
I'm still trying to figure out how it saves any money over a regular setback thermostat.

It has a microphone and listens...
