Best Prime Day Nest Thermostat deals 2021: What to expect

One thing spending most of the pandemic year in our homes has taught us: It pays to be comfortable, and no one wants to pay more for energy than they absolutely have to — you can save even more with these Prime Day deals. One of the best ways to keep costs low and keep you comfy is a Nest thermostat, one of the niftiest smart home gadgets Google has come up with. The Nest Thermostat allows you to control your home’s temperature from anywhere. You can install it easily, and it can save you tons of money. Read on if you want to know what you can look forward to if you’re considering buying a Nest Thermostat this Prime Day.

What Prime Day Nest Thermostat deals to expect

Google has a wide range of Nest Thermostat devices, and we expect to see a great number of them discounted in these Prime Day Nest Thermostat sales. There’s a Nest Thermostat for every budget, starting with the basic Google Nest Thermostat, which is in the $130 range. This thermostat monitors your home’s temperature to save energy and money and allows you to change the temperature with Google Home and Alexa devices. You might find these bundled with a wall mount and Nest Temperature Sensor for slightly more. From here, we climb into the “learning” zone, beginning in the $250 range, where you’ll find the Nest Learning Programmable Thermostat and the Nest Smart Learning Programmable Thermostat, also bundled with several Nest Temperature Sensors for the ultimate home temperature control experience.

We expect most, if not all, of these smart thermostats to be discounted in the Prime Day Nest Thermostat sales.

What Prime Day Nest Thermostat deals we saw last year

Last year, when it came to Prime Day Nest Thermostat deals, the biggest discounts were not with the most basic Nest products, where we saw discounts of only a few dollars (less than 5% off). Where things started to pick up was one we got to the more premium Nest Learning Thermostats. There we saw discounts of 20% off or more.

This isn’t to say it will be the exact same in 2021. But it gives you a good benchmark from which to work, whether you’re browsing or budgeting. If you see a more budget Nest Thermostat discounted by 20% or more, then you might want to grab it. And if the more premium models are only discounted by 5% or 10%, then you can look at them with a little more suspicion.

Should you buy a new Nest Thermostat on Prime Day?

Probably. You certainly should if a Nest Thermostat is already on your shopping list or in your cart and you’ve been waiting for an excuse to pull the trigger. Nest Thermostat products are going to be as cheap as they get in these Prime Day deals, and you should definitely be ready to take advantage.

On the other hand, if a Nest Thermostat sale is something that just intrigues you, and you weren’t already looking for one, take a beat. Examine your budget and decide exactly how much you can afford to spend on a Nest Thermostat — then if you see one within that price range, especially if it’s discounted more than the rates we’ve seen in the past, you can pounce on it. What we don’t want is for you to overspend, especially if the deal is not a significant one.
