First time I've ever posted a deal. Hope it is worth it to some.

Amazon has a deal right now where you can order this thermostat and get a "Free" Echo Dot. I have no use for it but I thought "why not" when I checked the order details I saw it broke it out into $30.76 for the Echo Dot and $49.23 for the thermostat. Went through return process and it let me initiate the return and confirm it is refunding me $30.76 + tax.

Normal retail is $79.99

I think their price matching Best buy who's also giving a free. So to those interested I might be easier to return the echo dot in store at Best buy if they price separately I've been very leery of any Wi-Fi thermostats check negative reviews than all they all seem to malfunction or cause someone's heat or AC to come on or not come on the Honeywell seem a little bit worse than the others

AFAIK- all WiFi thermostats have local processing. Meaning if they malfunction, it's just the WiFi can't control it. The system still turns on/off according to the settings before the WiFi stopped

I have a different WiFi Honeywell. Love it. Occasionally the WiFi stops working (usually it stays connected, but something on the Honeywell side). Ac/heat doesn't randomly change. Stays the same settings before the outtage. And I can still change the temp, etc from the panel itself.

Correct. It saves all schedules locally. If it can't communicate back to WiFi it doesn't stop working you can still adjust locally.

Also, today for example, https://www.mytotalconnectcomfort.com/ is down. Only affects using the WiFi functionality but it's usually resolved within a few hours. Much cheaper than something comparable though, IMO.
