Use promo code EARTHDAY19 to save $30 at checkout through April 22. Free shipping.

Be sure to check your local water agency for add'l rebates. For example, $200 rebate through LADWP for each controller. Last year, I got the Gen 2 for $50 ($130-80 rebate).
Check Rachio website to locate rebates -- https://rachio.com/rebates/

Some options (prices after EARTHDAY19 code):

Rachio just started their annual earth day discount, $30 off using the code EARTHDAY19

Shipping is free, no tax in most states.

Prices are as follows:
Rachio 8-Zone (Gen 2) [rachio.com] - $119
Rachio 8-Zone (Gen 3) [rachio.com] - $199
Rachio 8 Zone w/ Wireless Flow Meter [rachio.com] - $299

16 zone models are also work with the coupon code.

Comparison between Gen 2 and Gen 3 is located here [rachio.com]

Primary difference is dual band wifi, HomeKit and on-unit run/pause/skip buttons.

I just bought for the Gen 3 just for future proofing a bit, but I've read that both are excellent.

Not a great deal (Gen3 at one point was sold at $189 and Gen2 over last Thanksgiving with MIR and Lowe's coupon came to $108 with tax). This is a discount just better than nothing.
Unfortunately no love from our city so not worth the spend.

@graffixx when you say local water agency....do you mean your city water? They gave you a rebate? Did you just call them or were they advertising this?

Correct. I updated the post to include a link to Rachio rebate locator.

For me, I went through -- http://socalwatersmart.com/en/residential/

My only 2 cents is this: Was tax added? I always look at the final cost that I pay. In this case for myself, this is $2 more ($199) than I would have paid on the last Woot! deal ($197.94).

I do want to add that last year's deal was $50 off. I think.

For me, the Gen 2 was more last year, and with the $50 off:

$180-$50=$130 - $80 rebate = $50

If I had purchased the same model this year, it would have been $10 cheaper.

$150-$30=$120 - $80 rebate (still avail for me) = $40.

Actually I gave the invoice amount including tax. I have ordered Gen 3 from Rachio - cancelled it. Later ordered Gen 2 last thx giving, went on travel and could not pickup it in store on time. City not giving any benefits and these units getting better and lower on price did not think further.

Not a very good deal. Costco has sold the 2nd gen for $120 and it came with a free Google mini. Amazon has had the 3rd gen for $190 before. Also you can get the 3rd gen on Google Express for $210 just about any day of the week. This deal saves you a whopping 5% off normal price.

None of these prices are special. I guess it is better than nothing if you absoultly need a sprinkler system today, but far better deals can be found if you wait.

Got the 12 zone for $220 very recently at Costco only 8 zone debating if it's worth the hassle to return it to save $20.

I am curious. I guess I have a small lot because I only have 3 zones. But do most people here buy the 12 zone one?
