There’s no question whatsoever that the 3rd-Generation Nest Learning Thermostat is the hottest new smart thermostat on the market. It’s insanely sleek, the software is as simple and smart as ever, and it even includes great added features like Amazon Alexa integration. The only downside is that it’s a bit pricey at $249, though that’s not really such a bad deal if you consider how much money it’ll save you on your energy bills each month. Still, we always jump at the opportunity to save some cash, and a limited-time Amazon sale has slashed the cost of Nest’s latest-gen smart thermostat. Seriously, do yourself a favor and jump on this hot deal.

Here are some highlights from the product page:

  • Works with Amazon Alexa for voice control (Alexa device sold separately)
  • Auto-Schedule: Nest learns the temperatures you like and programs itself in about a week.
  • Home/Away Assist: Nest automatically turns itself down when nobody’s home to help you save energy.
  • Remote Control: Connect your thermostat to Wi-Fi to control the temperature from your phone, tablet or laptop.
  • Farsight: When the Nest Thermostat spots you across the room, it lights up beautifully to show you the time, temperature or weather.
  • Energy Star: First thermostat to earn Energy Star. Your thermostat controls half your energy bill – more than appliances, more than electronics. Saving energy starts with your Thermostat.
  • Energy History: Check your Energy History in the Nest app to see how much energy you use and why.
  • Nest Leaf: You’ll see the Leaf when you choose a temperature that saves energy. It guides you in the right direction.

UPDATE: Holy moly, you guys were all over that one. The bad news is the sub-$200 inventory is all sold out. The good news is there are still other sellers offering the 3rd-gen Nest below MSRP.
