Check your email if you sign up with BBB newsletter b4. Email title is "Drum roll please! Your New $20 off coupon is here!"
basically you enter the email address (the one you received above title) when you check out, the additional $20 off will show up.

Great price for this, picked one up. Note the new signup coupon is now 20% off one item, so came to $95.99 plus tax ($108.47 in ON).

I like it, but the light really is bright. 20w * 100 so you're looking at 2000w power's worth of LED light. If you live in an apartment it might be a deal breaker.

Completely agree. The AeroGarden concept is actually to offer people who may not have outdoor planting opportunity the experience of indoor growing, apartment occupants are good candidates from this perspective. However, the bright LED will kill your night in a smaller space. Period.

I know you can set a timer, but not really a solution to human circadian cycle.

I've had this one for over a year and it's very good. Light is indeed bright, but that's great for all the plants as everything grows. The controls are so simple. Maybe a little too simple because you can't set the on/off time in advance. So if you want this to turn lights on at 6am you have to wake up at 6am to do so and do this every time you unplug it in order to clean it after harvest is done.

I live in an apartment. I set it in the kitchen (against a nook wall), which is the usual open concept adjacent to the living room. Turns on very early in the morning and goes out in the evening before I sit down to watch movies. Zero problems because the light during day time does not bother me in the slightest. It's during the evenings where this creates glare issues. If it still bothers you, simply do a diy wrap around screen out of aluminum.

Aluminum doesn't reflect light very well, use something like blackout mylar, grow tent material, etc.

Also, Amazon had this for $79.99 on March 8 2019. Other than that, $129.99 is the lowest it drops to (happens often enough) so indeed this is a good deal but only if you've been wanting this.

I know you need air and some light but cant you just put a box of cardboard around it overnight.

Good deal especially with the 20% off. I just bought the Harvest Slim for $145 from The Bay last week.
I do like the form factor of it on my countertop, rectangle and slim.
I did not expect that brightness though. It’s blinding. Luckily I’ve set the timer to come on at around 11pm and off at 3pm. The only time we see the light is in the morning and weekend.

As per their website, https://www.aerogarden.com/harvest-base.html, this uses a 20W LED grow light. Not much different from any other 20-25W LED fixture, depending on the efficacy/quality of the LED's and drivers used.

They may claim that each LED on the board is rated up to 20W (a misleading and outlandish claim), and there are 100x of them, but in this case they are being driven at 0.2W each (100x0.2W=20W).

Still bright to look at with bare eyes though, about the same as a 100W incandescent lightbulb.

Yes all the diodes consume 20w, not each one as suggested earlier lol, so like a 150w incandescent bulb (15W led is equivalent to 100w inc.). A 2000w broad spectrum led grow light alone will run you almost $200 and up.

How do refills and stuff like that work? Do you have to keep buying new pods or can you use alot of the stuff?

10w single LED is like top of the line, 20w is crazy.

Interested in knowing that as well.
How long does a pod last?

I've been using the Harvest Slim Elite from Costco for over a year and bought a second one 6 months ago. One set of pods lasts about 4 months.

For refills I bought these products in the US back in the day when you could freely travel:

https://www.aerogarden.com/1-liter-liqu ... ients.html
https://www.aerogarden.com/garden-start ... -pack.html

Cost was about $40 CAD for both at the time and I fill with my own seeds. Should last me around 5 years.
