I think the benefit of a smart thermostat vs a regular programmable thermostat becomes more apparent if you get some additional sensors to go with it. I have an Ecobee with a few extra sensors which check the temperature in different parts of the house (not just where the thermostat is) and also sense motion to determine if there is someone home. I probably don't end up saving money vs a programmable thermostat, particularly when you factor in upfront costs for the sensors, but from a comfort/convenience perspective it is nice to have the automatic adjustment to the program when you are home or in a particular part of the house.
