Save $70: Shopping refurbished is better for the Earth and your wallet. As of Aug. 29, you can get a Geek Squad-certified refurbished Google Nest(opens in a new tab) for just $59.99 at Best Buy. That’s $70 off its regular MSRP.
Whether it’s unforgivably hot (looking at you, summer 2022) or blisteringly cold, you want to know that you can rely on your thermostat. And you want a thermostat that can help keep your electric bill from getting too high.
As of Aug. 29, you can grab a refurbished Google Nest from Best Buy(opens in a new tab) for just $60. That $70 savings has been popular — at the time of writing, one color of the Nest(opens in a new tab) had sold out, but you could still grab it in the charcoal(opens in a new tab) and snow(opens in a new tab) shades.
While it may not look like much more than an aesthetically pleasing thermostat at first glance, the Nest has some serious perks. Left the AC on when you went to go run a few errands? No problem, just jump on to your Google Home app to adjust it. Coming home after a long day and would rather not step into a house that’s been baking in the sun all day? Set the temp to a nice 75 before you even step through the door.
You can also set a personalized schedule on your Nest or connect it with your phone’s location, so it automatically goes into Eco mode when you leave the house. And again, this thermostat is smart, so it’ll suggest changes to your schedule to maximize your energy savings.
Buying refurbished can be a little nerve-wracking, but the Geek Squad certification means you’re getting a product that’s been thoroughly tested by Best Buy’s team. Plus, you’ll get 15 days to return it, and it can be covered by a one-year limited warranty through Google.
