Those in Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Upstate New York, Long Island, and New York City (Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island) with utility National Grid can visit the following site to apply for a $50 rebate with the purchase of this thermostat.
Be sure to check off your state in the menu on the left side of the page to get the correct form.
CA users can get $125 back from SCE and Socal Gas if you are in an area served by both. $75 if only a SCE customer. This technically allows SCE to adjust your thermostat as part of save power days, but by the time those days come around next summer you can just cancel.
phisher4 said: Better or worse than Nest? Subjective. Lower price, but beyond that this is a great thermostat. It can hold 1 degree +/- of your programmed temp (Nest is +/- 2-3). Has auto filter change reminder based on usage. Wifi, and remote control via phone or PC is nice. Password mode is nice for when babysitter wants the AC at 68 while you're gone. Scheduling is SUPER easy on this; and is the feature I like the best. The wifi and remote control is nice but in some areas like Southern CA it is nearly useless since 10 months out of the year we don't use heat or AC.
About the only thing nest has on this is that it is circular and more modern looking, IMHO.
