[Amazon.ca] Ecobee Smart Thermostat (Ecobee5?) $198.73

I am not even sure if this is the right EcoBee version, this looks like the ecobee5 because of the stand. Last known good price for this was $269-$75. I saw it on Amazon with the alexa in smart switch thing for $269 (https://www.amazon.ca/ecobee-SmartTherm ... B0864Z79ZF) But I feel costco (https://www.costco.ca/ecobee-smarttherm ... 67991.html) has a better deal?

Can someone more familiar with their naming, guide me?

Once the lightening deal is brought you can ideally return the switch. Costco is still selling it for $229, but is not ecobee5.

The Amazon link is the Ecobee 5. I ordered it, and it added 2 items to my deliveries:
https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B07NWM5571
https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B079K3PB16/

The first one, part number is EB-STATE5C-01. Thanks btw, the lightning deal actually saved me a lot more than even the Prime day sale of just buying it separately.

I think the Costco one isn't - it says ecobee3 lite Smart Thermostat in the description:
ecobee Smart Thermostat with Whole Home Sensors features the ecobee3 lite Smart Thermostat with enhanced RF performance so that the included SmartSensors work more reliably and over a longer range. Ultimately this allows your smart thermostat to have a better understanding of your whole home which helps it optimize for energy savings, comfort, and security

Can the light switch be returned separately? Is the 5 much better than the 3? Or it a case where the higher number is a down grade?

I doubt it can be returned separately, but I might try it and let you know.
Ecobee 5 supports Alexa calling, 5GHz wifi, and Bluetooth, which neither 3 nor 4 do.

I've seen this Ecobee kit in stores for this price; it is the Ecobee 5. Maybe the online description is wrong

You're right, I meant Alexa calling.

No, it isn't an Ecobee 5. I bought this in store at Costco thinking it was the newest Ecobee based on the description. Brought it home and opened the box to find an Ecobee 3 lite.
