Adorama now has the DJI Spark for pre-order.

The basic $499 "standalone" option and the $699.00 "complete bundle" are available. The complete bundle includes a extra carrying bag, prop guards, battery, 1.2 mile transmitter, charging bank, extra props. The extra battery and transmitter cost a combined $200 if purchased separately.

American Express is offering two offers -per card - for spending $250 or more at Adorama.
A. $25 cash back
B. 2,500 Membership Rewards points


I was able to secure the 2,500 MR point offer on two of my cards. I called and had them split the charge between the two cards. Since I needed to exceed $249.99 per card, I opted for 3-5 day shipping for $8 more. I earned 5,000 MR points, if you have two cash-back offers from Amex, your true cost shipped would be as low as $457 with 3-5 shipping.

I've already received the two emails from Amex that I've "used the offer", so the charges have already hit and are registering even with a phone pre-order. Expected ship date was late June according to the Adorama agent.


Side note:
You can currently transfer from Amex MR points to JetBlue at a 1:1 ratio during the offer period. The 5,000 points I earned can be transferred to JetBlue and be used for a flight around $87.

I get the portability aspect of this drone. But at that price, imo, I would rather get a refurb Phantom 4.

I got the $250 offer. Is the 2,500 points a separate offer?

when you spend $250, amex will give you either $25 as cashback or 2,500 membership rewards points. check the offer details to see your bonus once you spend $250+ on adorama.

I have the P4. The benefit for me is using the drone with no phone or remote. Something about one device and one battery to worry about is a huge draw for me.

Maybe just wait for refurbished units for around $250 or so?

1080/30 FPS. Watch YouTube video footage clips, very good color and with a 25mm camera (larger than mavic) it takes great stills.

Definitely interested in this for travel video. But at $700 for the combo I'm wondering if it's better to just get the mavic for a few hundred more.

But if it really is a 25mm cam vs the mavic, that might be worth it.

This might be helpful. Casey Neistat did a comparison today with the Spark and the Mavic. The Spark footage actually looked surprisingly good for the size of the device.

Enjoy!
