The best part of a new drone launch is almost always the new drone. But the second best part? All the old models going on sale. And in the wake of the DJI Mavic 3 Pro drone launch comes a pretty sweet May 2022 drone sale.
With this May 2022 drone sale comes a discount on the DJI Mavic 3, which is a welcome discount on an otherwise very pricey drone. There’s also a 14% discount on the DJI Air 2S Fly More Combo, which makes the debate between the DJI Mavic 3 Pro vs. Mavic Air 2 even spicier.
With most of these deals, retailers will honor them through May 31, 2022. Though, act fast as supply chain issues are still ongoing, and you want to make sure your dream drone actually ships to you.
So with that, here are the best deals you’ll find on drones this month:
DJI Mavic 3: 7% off (save $150)
It seems as though the DJI Mavic 3 price reduction offered in April is back again this month. Once again, you’ll get instant savings of $150 off the DJI Mavic 3. That brings the usual $2,199 price tag to $2,049 for a 7% discount.
- Amazon: 7% off thanks to instant savings of $150, bringing the $2,199 price down to $2,049. Plus, if you pay with the Amazon Prime Rewards Visa Signature Card, you can earn an additional 5% back (that’s more than $100 back on top of all the other savings!).
- Adorama: 7% off thanks to instant savings of $150, bringing the $2,199 price down to $2,049. Plus, right now sign up for the Adorama Rewards program to receive 4,098 back as rewards points, which is double the usual amount you’d earn from such a purchase. Those points are worth about $40 and can be redeemed for future Adorama purchases.
- B&H Photo: 7% off thanks to instant savings of $150, bringing the $2,199 price down to $2,049.
DJI Mavic Air 2 Fly More Combo: 20% off
This drone is probably the closest competitor to the new DJI Mini 3 Pro.
While not quite as small as the Mini 3 Pro, it’s still ultra-portable and compact. I still maintain that the Air 2S is best for someone who wants the highest quality camera including professional photographers like wedding photographers, but who doesn’t have the budget for the DJI Mavic 3. The camera specs include a1/2″ CMOS Quad Bayer sensor mounted on a 3-axis stabilized gimbal that can capture up to 48 MP resolution.
- B&H Photo: 20% off thanks to instant savings of $199, bringing the $988 price down to $789.
- Amazon: 20% off thanks to instant savings of $199, bringing the $988 price down to $789.
DJI Action 2: up to 15% off
Maybe you already have a drone and want something new from DJI. Maybe flying drones doesn’t fit with your lifestyle at all, but you love the aesthetic of drones. Check out the DJI Action 2, which is DJI’s second action camera and a compact camera for on-the-go video recording. Thanks to smart video stabilization software, this little square, palm-sized camera still manages to produce silky smooth video even without a gimbal.
The DJI Action 2 Dual-Screen Combo is normally $519, but it’s on sale for 15% off at many major retailers, thus down to $439.
- Amazon: 15% off all versions of the DJI Action 2 kit. You can an additional 5% back by paying with the Amazon Prime Rewards Visa Signature Card.
- B&H: 15% off all versions of the kit. That’s instant savings of at least $60 (or more, depending on the combo you opt for).
- Adorama: 15% off all versions of the kit. That’s instant savings of at least $60 (or more, depending on the combo you opt for).
