I think a few of us may have noticed the significant price drop from £1249 to £999 for the DJI FPV Drone bundle from the likes of Jessops, Curry’s, Argos, etc.
Yesterday the price at Argos was £999
This price drop peaked my interest, especially as my wife works for Argos and receives a 10% staff discount. Then she informs me that the discount will be increased to 15% for this coming Saturday and Sunday, making a further saving of £150 or £849 for the bundle.
However earlier today I was about to make the order and the Argos price is back up at £1249.
This isn’t the first time we’ve experienced this. A few months back my wife and I were thinking of upgrading our antiquated TV for a new LG Smart thingy. Argos had the TV at a discounted price so we decided to wait until the next staff discount weekend. However come the weekend the TV was up at full RRP. After the weekend when the staff discount offer had expired the TV was back at the discounted price. It transpires Argos do this on purpose where they will increase the price of desirable, usually electronic, items during periods of where extra staff discount is being offered and then reduce the prices once the discount period has expired in the hope that staff will spend.
I’m not particularly upset, it would have been a nice addition to my fleet for the money, but I won’t be losing sleep for not having it in my fleet.
So for anyone thinking of buying the DJI FPV Drone from Argos, wait until next week as it will be back down to £999 on Monday morning.
