Amazon Prime Day 2018 will be the best time to buy a new drone from DJI, as the company will participate in the 36-hour marathon sale for the first time.
The foldable DJI Mavic Pro and smaller DJI Spark will see significant price drops next week as part of Prime Day 2018, going as low as $259 and $300 off.
Today, a new DJI Spark currently costs a reasonable $284 when the list price (and the price at launch) was $400. The drone itself will be on sale pre-owned for $259 for Prime Day and the refurbished ‘Fly More’ bundle will be $379 (down from $439). The Spark with the Fly More Combo (new) is still $529 on Amazon, and DJI says this version will be $50 cheaper. So it’ll cost $450 in the end.
DJI Mavic Pro is $799 on Amazon today, which had an MSRP of $999 when it first launched. That’s a savings of $200. It’ll get even better soon. DJI says it’s knocking $200 off the price of the $799 Mavic Pro, and $300 off the $999 Fly More Bundle. We’ve contacted DJI to make sure these are deals on the already discounted price of this foldable drone, not the original list price.
