Amazon’s Prime Day, which for 2020 is October 13-14, has emerged as one of the best times of the year to score great deals on almost everything: including drones. Check out just a few of the great Prime Day drone deals we’ve found from new sources around the web.
The DJI Mavic Mini Fly More Combo
CNET says that this is one of the best Prime Day drone deals: $100 off the DJI Mavic Mini Fly More Combo. The Mavic Mini is truly mini – a palm-sized folding drone. Here’s the deal: Mavic Mini usually sells for $399 by itself: but the Prime Day deal is $399 for the combo. “That’s $100 off the normal $499 price for the bundle, which includes the drone, its compact controller, a two-way charging hub, three batteries, protective propeller cages, three sets of extra propellers and a carrying case.” A great way to get somebody else started with drones or to add to your fleet!
For the Professional: the Mavic 2 Pro
The Mavic 2 Pro is equipped with a Hasselblad Camera: and it’s a light-weight, foldable, reliable and accurate professional drone solution. Save Bubble reports that the Prime Day drone deal is $130 off: an 8% savings. Buy the Mavic 2 Pro for $1,599 on Amazon and save from the usual price of $1,729. According to Amazon, the deal includes: DJI Mavic 2 Pro, Intelligent Flight Battery, Gimbal Protector, Remote Controller, 3x Propellers (Pair), Battery Charger, Power Cable, Communication Cable (USB3. 0 Type-C), USB adapter, Spare Control Sticks (Pair), RC Cable (Lightning Connector), RC Cable (Standard Micro USB Connector), RC Cable (USB Type-C Connector).
Don’t Mind an Older Model? Save a Ton on the Mavic Air
Released in 2018, the Mavic Air is one model behind the Mavic Air 2 released this spring- but it’s still a great drone. Digital Trends lists this as one of the best Prime Day drone deals out there: save 24% and get a Mavic Air for $699.
Should you invest during Prime Day, or wait until Black Friday or Cyber Monday? Digital Trends points out that Black Friday isn’t that far away – so if you want to be sure of avoiding re-stocking or shipping delays due to a combination of COVID and the holiday rush, now is a great time to invest.
