Nest Thermostat for only $169!

A few years back we covered how the fancy Nest Thermostat is a Thrifty Traveler’s best friend. Besides saving money, the real value is the peace of mind I get from being able to check on the house when I travel, knowing that everything is running as it should. Amazon is running a Cyber Monday special of only $169 for the newest 3rd generation of the Nest. The normal retail price is $249, so this is solid savings, and the lowest I’ve ever seen them sell for. You can even snag the sexy new copper nest for only $20 more.


What I love about the nest:
  • Monitor and control the temperature from anywhere in the world directly from my phone or laptop.
  • Turn the A/C up as I’m on my way home from work or turn it off, if I’m working late.
  • Setup a schedule that fits my unpredictable schedule, helping save costs by minimizing energy usage.
  • Check the app to make sure the A/C and heat are running,  depending on the season.
  • Don’t have to worry about frozen pipes in the winter if the heat fails while I’m enjoying the beach in Mexico.
  • App/online tracking of power usage, including comparisons to prior years, and also local averages.
  • If I’m feeling lazy I can adjust the temperature from bed or on the couch. Don’t judge me.
