I've been looking for a deal on these particular cams for a while since deciding that the convenience factor of a wifi cam (in this case with free 7-day cloud storage) beats the better picture quality of the wired options, at least for my use case.

Best deal I found, which is good through 7/23 (when Staples Rewards 25% promo ends) was to PM BestBuy price of $199.99 [bestbuy.com] at Staples B&M [staples.com] with the in-store promo of 25% rewards (available through the weekly ad on their homepage), resulting in a final cost of $150ish + tax.

The 25% rewards is for in-store purchases only, so I also picked up some of the discounted bulbs posted in another thread, and also had them order two more of the cams for me, since they only had one in stock. Since I purchased three cams at $199.99, the 25% should be good for around $150 credit, which will largely offset the price of a fourth cam.

Aside from the free 7 day cloud, how does the Arlo Q compare to the Nest Cam?

From what I could tell, they're pretty similar feature-wise so the biggest factor for me was the cost of monitoring since I plan to have 3-4 cameras. The Nest requires $10/mo for the first and $5/mo each additional, so that's $20-25/mo while these are free for 7-day retention for up to 5 cameras, with the ability to pay for longer retention or more cameras.

Also, setup was an absolute breeze. It probably took me longer to open the box than it did to get the first cam up and running. The app took a little while to set up, but it's pretty feature-rich with a decent UI.

My 25% rewards didn't work on this item. I didn't get bonus rewards, I bought some other small school items, wandering why. Did 110% price match.

I'm having the same problem. They didn't credit me the 25% and when I chatted with a CSR, she claimed that it was excluded under "home automation." Since I had not way to know in-store that it was under that exclusion, and the manager also indicated that it would qualify, I'm going to dispute it, but so far customer support has been useless, basically suggesting that I go back to the store and take it up with the manager.

I wasn't aware their PM was 110%. All they did for me was PM Best Buy's price.

Manager initially didn't offer 110% for me neither and said it's only to Match staples brand products, I said what ? How! And I guess he finally offered to me but only like $2 off. Anyway, I guess I just have to take the loss. Frown
