Amazon Prime Day officially kicks off tomorrow. But if it’s Autel drones you’re seeking, here’s the deal you want to get in on: the summer 2023 Autel sale.

Between now and Wednesday, July 12 (which perhaps is not coincidentally the second and final day of Amazon Prime Day 2023), you can get an extra 10% off purchases made directly from Autel’s website when you input the coupon code “INSALE10” at checkout.

All models on the Autel online store are eligible for the 2023 Autel sale using that “INSALE10” promo code.

Yes, that means 10% off everything from the consumer oriented EVO Lite Series and EVO Nano Series, to the industrial grade EVO II Dual and Pro drones, as well as all the Autel accessories available on the site.

What to know about Amazon Prime Day (and the great deals already available)

Sure, Amazon Prime Day 2023 doesn’t officially start until tomorrow (that’s Tuesday, July 11). But deals surrounding the two-day sale are already happening — and not just on Autel’s website.

There are plenty of early Amazon Prime Day 2023 deals already accessible. Here are the best of them:

Receive a $200 gift card upon approval for Amazon’s Prime Visa Card

Between now and July 26, 2023, Amazon Prime members will receive a $200 Amazon Gift Card instantly upon approval for Prime Visa — no other spending requirement needed.

The Amazon Prime Rewards Visa Card has a $0 annual fee, and it is one of the easiest, most straightforward ways to save on Amazon purchases (it offers 5% back year-round at Amazon.com, Amazon Fresh, and Whole Foods Market with an eligible Prime membership). In context, that’s $50 back on a $1,000 drone purchased off Amazon. Plus, that 5% you get back for using the credit card can be combined with other deals.

Receive $5 with Amazon gift card purchases

This is among the easiest ways to score $5. Simply purchase an Amazon gift card of $50 or more anytime between July 3 and 10, and you’ll receive a bonus $5 credit.

Keep in mind that you do need to be an Amazon Prime member to be eligible for the credit card and gift card offers listed above. But here’s an easy hack to get them without actually being a Prime member: simply sign up for a free, 30-day trial of Amazon Prime here.

Other awesome deals for drone pilots right now

The great thing about deals is when one store has a sale, many competing stores also dive in with deals. Thank you Amazon Prime Day, and thank you 2023 Autel sale. But here are some other great deals that drone pilots will surely love:

Resale Sony cameras from B&H Photo

Drone pilots have been embracing the Sony Alpha series of cameras, which are designed to integrate with Sony’s own Airpeak drone, as well as other drones such as those from Skyfish. There are a bunch of great deals on like new cameras from B&H. They include:

Spring cleaning trade-in deals from B&H Photo

Got old gear you rarely use — that you’d rather just get money for rather than let it collect dust?

B&H is also running a Sony camera trade-in event this summer where, for a limited time, Sony will give you your gear’s trade-in value PLUS up to a $300 bonus when you trade in and trade up new gear.

That’s not the only trade in deal available. Panasonic Lumix camera owners can get a $300 bonus toward a new camera when they trade-in their old gear anytime between now and July 29.

$13 Baby Yoda drone deal

This is more of a fun party trick rather than a drone, but I can’t resist sharing this deal. A Baby Yoda (okay, officially Grogu) toy drone based on the character from the Star Wars franchise “The Mandalorian.” It’s just $13 (normally $20) and a hilarious item not to pass up.

A $5.15 Buzz Lightyear drone deal

This Disney space star drone is even cheaper. This toy drone is made by Hot Wheels and features Buzz Lightyear. It’s now at its lowest price ever — just $5.15, so it’s tough to go wrong with this. Don’t expect much given how cheap it is, but it sure is cute and funny.
