Lowest price ever seen! Even lower than the front page last year! Link

Exergen Comfort Scanner Temporal Thermometer is on sale for only $30.34 at Walgreens.com (Don't forget to use your FSA money for this purchase!)

Link [walgreens.com]

You can also purchase the item from Amazon [amazon.com] for $30.90

Then there's $20 rebate from exergen.com website. There's 2 separate rebate for $10 each, which I believe can be done concurrently because the requirement doesn't overlap.
$10 for Mom (need form + barcode): Link [exergen.com]
$10 for Friends & Family (need form + original receipt): Link [exergen.com]

Rebates end December 31, 2013

There's no problems with accuracy. The problem is user related and not a defect of the thermometer. Once you know how to do it right, You won't have any issues at all. I'm a father of 3 that has used this countless times

As a pharmacist, I can attest these are not accurate. Skin temperature can vary drastically from core temps. The rectum and armpit are usually the best places to go. Oral is good too and easily accessible. And even if you do manage to figure out the exact way to accurate readings with this skin thermometer, the vast majority of people will not. I'd rather not take the risk to misdiagnose a fever. People come to the pharmacy and ask me all the time about thermometers and other OTC products.

A necessary invention with those lawsuits: Baby chomping on those things and rear end intrusions.

As a pharmacist do you diagnose and treat patients? Are you a liscenced clinician?
I know you are an expert in your field, but are you qualified to be commenting on something that is used clinically?

Many clinicians do use these (Peds departments) and they can be very accurate if used correctly. The speed is unmatched and can be useful especially if you just want to know fever vs no fever. Is the exact temperature to the .01 really going to help you make a different diagnosis as a parent? Is it easy to keep an oral thermometer in a sick childs mouth/axilla/rectum long enough to get a reading?

Sorry about the rant.
All things to consider...This could be useful for many people.

I have this and used it for about a year. The problem with this particular (temporal) method is that the technique will vary and some people will do it incorrectly or inconsistently. However, when done right, it is fairly accurate.

This one is a piece of crap, specially for little ones. Every time it gave different temperature. Had to return it.
Even though I hate to use the rectal thermometer with my baby, it gives correct temperature.

We got one of these for use with our two young kids and now that we know how to use it correctly its very accurate and way quicker/easier to use than oral/armpit thermometers. We had an issue a few months ago with our youngest running a very high fever of 105F and when the pediatrician and paramedics checked our readings they were right on the money. The best technique we've found is to start in the center of the forehead, push the button so it starts measuring and hold it down (it beeps while its reading temps), run the tip around to the side of the forehead all the way to the top of the ear (either side works), around the back of the ear to the bottom of the ear next to the jaw bone, release the button and then pull the tip away and check the reading. Try and keep the tip flat on the skin while you're measuring, we usually do it once on each side and if the number comes out roughly the same (like 101.3 and 101.5) its a good reading. Once you've got the motion down it takes about 3 seconds to get a reading.

This is a great deal for an accurate thermometer, you just have to know how to use it.
