Airbnb is offering discounts on Nest products — specifically the smart home company’s popular thermostats and Nest Protect devices — for top-rated “superhosts” as part of a new initiative to better reward the top hosts on the service.

Nest is the first of what Airbnb envisions as a wider store for discounted smart home devices for superhosts, offering a 30 percent discount on Nest thermostats and Nest Protect devices globally. The discount program should be rolling out later this spring alongside other changes for superhosts, including a new profile badge, free travel vouchers, and other perks.

Airbnb also announced some major changes to its platform today in addition to the superhost perks, including a new hotel-like service called Airbnb Plus.
