Amazon is offering the 8-Zone Rachio Smart Sprinkler Controller (2nd Gen) plus a $50 Amazon Gift Card for $199 shipped. With the added value of the GC, that’s about $100 under the regular price, $5 under our previous mention and the best we can find. The 16-Zone model is currently available for $245.91 with the $50 gift card attached. That’s also the best we can find. Best Buy is currently running the exact same offer, but you’ll pay slightly more for the 16-Zone model.

The system carries a 4+ star rating from over 1,350 customers and is the best selling irrigation controller on Amazon.
