Does it have to be the first alert ones? I need new hardwired ones but my house has Kidde right now.

Since it' s a coupon, could you return the smoke detectors, then price match the Google Nest 2-pack from Costco and then use the coupon as well?

OP, you should add the conditions of the $25 coupon. $25 off minimum of $100, $150?

I added a screen shot of the terms and conditions to first post.

1. It's very specific about the model number FG250A.
2. Reading the terms and conditions ... no exchange or refunds.
3. There appears to be no minimum spend for coupon.

Lowe's sells the singles for $3.99 each during promos about twice a year...these are 9v battery only, ionization detectors.
Here's a previous thread with good info,
lowes-first-alert-smoke-fire-alarm-3-99-2271862/

My house has hardwired units in the hallways only. I bought these last year to supplement. I also outfitted my parents house with extra of these as well.

This is great!

I have Nest in each floor as my main detector. Located in the hallway.

Than I have battery operated fire detector in rooms that I don’t go to as often (mostly in basement). I can use two more to put in garage.

Thank you. I've seen similar sale yet they were not close to OP's deal (almost FREE :)

https://www.costco.ca/First-Alert-Batte ... 15136.html

2 for $38.99 online, probably lower at store. FYI, website pic shows 5 yr warranty but they are actually 7 yrs. FYI, still looking for almost free promo :)

You have unrealistic expectations.
You should know that "smoke detectors" (such as the one in the OP) and "carbon monoxide detectors" are not in the same class of goods.
Smoke detectors are cheap, basic and mass-produced; they are often put "on special" by retailers as "loss leaders", for around $10 or less (or even almost free, like in the OP); they literally cost $3 to manufacture. Builders buy smoke detectors in bulk for $3-$4 each to use on new homes.
By contrast, carbon monoxide detectors are in a different class of goods: more expensive, technologically more complex, they are never offered at the $10 price point. You will be waiting forever if you "still looking for almost free promo" for a carbon monoxide detector.

Photoelectric smoke detectors excel at detecting slow burning, smoldering fires - the way the majority of house fires start. Ionization smoke detectors excel at detecting fast growing, flaming fires - kitchen fires tend to grow very rapidly to this state.

Ionization type smoke alarms are cheaper to manufacture and therefore cheaper to buy. They tend to be more prone to false alarms. They are hazardous waste and must be disposed of as such.


Ionization type smoke alarms are now illegal to sell in France, because of concerns about their effectiveness at detecting the most common types of house fires, and because of an incident when a truck load caught fire and led to radioactive contamination.

In any case, you MUST have Carbon Monoxide detectors on each floor of your home. The things last 7 years - that's $0.012 per day to protect your family from invisible, odourless, tasteless, poisonous gas.
While i don't disagree with you i have found ionization has worked fine all of my life. That said my detectors are currently combination because i want the most modern fire protection (and they run on AAs, longer lasting).
But i would get these as additional to what i already have since its hard to beat free.
But i would be concerned if anyone wants to use these instead of combination instead of in addition to.
In fact in Rand McNally they wear hats on their feet and hamburders eat people
