If your current T-stat isn't actively using a C wire, all is not lost for a straightforward proper install of these things.
I've seen several times where there are unused wires in the bundle going to the T-stat...like a 5 wire run even though only 4 of the 5 are used for example. If that's the case for you, your probably in luck! If your really lucky, it'll be 24v thus a C wire ready to go. Every time I've seen this, the unused wires are dead though. If it is, don't fret! If you aren't afraid of taking the service panel off the air handler, do that, find the main board which should be obvious and right there in front of you. You'll see the row of screws the T-stat wires are attached to, and those extra dead wires at the t-stat are probably just hanging out there unconnected. Simply connect which one you want to use (usually the blue wire) to the screw labeled C (common), now you have an active C wire!
If you have a really old or non standard system with no common terminal to attach a c wire, there are other ways like right off the 24v transformer, but that takes a bit of research on your actual unit as to where to tap into. I
If you have the terminals, but not enough wires in the cable, you can always run a new cable between the air handler and T stat, or even just the single additional wire if desired.

I had been waiting on a sale for this for a while, but I bit on the nest e deal for $119 at Lowe's a couple days ago. Is this a better deal? All I want is to be able to tell Alexa to set the temp to xx degrees. Reliability would be a plus as well. Should I return the nest and get this?

This may be a weird question. But do thermostats all have the same connectors? For example, if I buy this will it be hard to install or will my old one just pop off and this will fit right in in its place?

Not all are the same. Pop off your current one to see what wires you have. Even tho this is honey well, go to Google nest thermostat compatibility checker and it'll help you identify if you have the needed C wire. Most cases you will, depending on the builder and age.
But the checker will def help you

They won't fit right in since they are all different shapes. It helps if you know if you have a c-wire. If you do, this would make most thermostats compatible with your home. If you don't you can buy an adapter. The fitting is just a matter of drilling a new mount.

Anyone in the Chicago area with Comed as their electric provider can get these for $85 at Home Depot. The Comed instant rebate knocks $75 off of the price. I just picked up three last weekend for my home

also recent, my system is 2012, carrier use a 2 wire proprietary communication protocol , which makes for easy installations, but totally incompatible with multi wire thermostats.

I had the same 2 wire carrier at my business with three rooftop units. I ended up just having a HVAC guy come out and rewiring the units so I could install these. The units can take traditional thermostats, it's just they come with the Carrier proprietary thermostats so most installers put them in
