When it comes to smart thermostats, Google offers two Nest options that are definitely worth checking out. The Nest Learning Thermostat is still the staple for the brand over the regular Nest Thermostat. It's the company's premium smart thermostat featuring a metal ring and a high-resolution display.

This thermostat is typically $249, but you can get it for just $179 across several different retailers right now during early Black Friday deals.

Right now at Google, you can grab two Nest Learning Thermostats and save $150. If you buy just one, you'll have $70. That means you can grab it for $179 instead of $249. All seven of the Nest Learning Thermostat colors are available during this sale. If you want it professionally installed, you can have that for just $49 (and save $50).


With free Prime One-Day shipping, you can get the Nest Learning Thermostat for just $179 and receive it by tomorrow. Only the mirror black, polished steel, stainless steel and white thermostats are available at the discounted price. Expert installation will set you back $130 per unit if you choose to get it through Amazon.

At Best Buy, you can grab the thermostat for $180. There are five different colors available at that price. You can opt for four years of Geek Squad product replacement for just $35, and if you have Best Buy Total Tech (which is billed $200 per year) you'll get free standard installation, setup and smart home customization. 


You can also grab this deal at Dell, Kohl's, Belk, Lowes and Target.

It comes in seven different color finishes including stainless steel, mirror black, brass, polished steel, white, black and copper. All of the colors are on sale at Google and Lowe's. But Amazon, Target, Best Buy, Belk, Kohl's and Dell are only offering one or two on sale. 

Not all of the retailers have said when or how long these deals will last. Only Lowe's has said that its deal will end on Nov. 30, well past Black Friday. These deals may last until then, but it's always a good idea to hop on the savings while supplies last. Supplies may go very quickly.

The Learning Thermostat has a classic turn dial that lets you navigate settings and you can simply press it to make a selection. You can use the Nest app and control this thermostat in the Google Home app. A feature called Farsight displays the weather, time and temperature when it senses your presence.

A learning algorithm is designed to adapt to your schedule over time and will automatically make adjustments on your behalf. You can view your energy history to see what affects your energy use and receive alerts if the temperature in your home is dangerously high or low.
