OhmConnect has $150 off coupon for Ecobee3 smart thermostat (i believe for California residents only).

The final price comes down to $119 no tax, free shipping

From OhmConnect website,
If you live in California, you are entitled to receive up to $300 per year for saving energy.

So, here's the deal:
As an OhmConnect member, you are getting access to up to 4 brand new, smart, energy-saving devices for up to $150 below retail price.

You can think of this promotion like a loan that you will automatically pay back using the points you earn as an OhmConnect member. To be clear, you won't owe anything out of pocket for your "loan" payments as long as you stay with OhmConnect and keep saving energy.

At OhmConnect, we take the energy you save, sell it on the energy market, and pay you in points based on how much you saved ($150 = 15,000 points). When you buy a device from our store using a promotion, you pay back the amount of the promotion over time with your OhmConnect points. First, we apply any available points in your account toward your purchase, then we apply 80% of your future points until your promotion is paid off. After that, you own your device free and clear!

Want to pay off your promotion really fast? Refer your friends and family to join, post on social media, automate more devices and participate in as many #OhmHours as you can. To give you an idea of what's possible, we've had some members earn more than 15,000 points in as little as a week!

This agreement does mean that we need you to stay with us for a while. Hopefully you love what we do and enjoy making great energy decisions for the good of the electricity grid, so you'll want to stay with us, too.

If you decide to leave our service prior to two years from your purchase date (let's say you move across the country and use a new utility that doesn't support OhmConnect), we ask that you pay off any remaining balance you owe for the device before you leave our service. The balance will be the difference between the promotion given to you at time of purchase and the total points you've paid back to us since then. You can check your outstanding balance from your OhmConnect dashboard at any time.

Two years with OhmConnect is plenty of time to earn 15,000 points. If you've been with us for two years and still haven't fully paid off your promotion, we'll let you off the hook for whatever's left.
If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.

Good on you for adding more details OP. Was going to respond back that you have to enroll and pay back overtime by letting them control the thermostat. Not a big deal to some but a deal breaker to others such as those with infants.

This is one of the shadiest deals I've ever seen. Set up as a normal "sign up for our site and we'll give you a discount" when in reality they force you via a hidden agreement to "stay with them for a while" and use their service. Completely unspoken of in checkout.
