I've been keeping an eye out on deals for new (not open box, or "like new") Mavic 2 Pros and Zooms. Do any approved vendors here have any deals going on?

Yep. Im getting old enough to know that if a deal sounds too good to be true, it usually is.

The good thing here is that I know and trust many Approved Vendors here and have done business with many of them, some of them numerous times. They have all been honorable.

I've been looking for the deal from DJI that offers the smart controller at $249 off when purchasing the M2P.

Has anyone seen that offer?

I've been to the DJI site, but don't see a promotion for it.

If you're on the DJI site, they show 4 versions of the M2 to select from.
Pro
Zoom
Pro (DJI smart controller)
Zoom (DJI smart controller)

If you look at the price of the last 2, they are cheaper than the M2 and SC alone.
The zoom + SC is $1,649 whereas the zoom alone is $1,249.
The combo kits are out of stock.

What's not clear if you still get the regular controller.

That deal is available on this page in the DJI Store. Depending on where you live, the Smart Controller might not be in stock yet.

What do you see under "version" section? You should see 4 versions.
If you select Zoom or Pro and not the 'versions' containing the SR, then you see the goggles under "combo"

I guess DJI is selling the M2 with SR as a kit rather than as a combo, just as they did with Fly More on earlier Mavic models.
That would make sense if the SR is included in place of the regular remote rather than along with the regular remote. DJI should be more clear about that.

i noticed it today - talking of the 'deals' it may look like one, as it goes for a -$100. but, all in all, quite a questionable value.

i ordered a different bundle, should be here day after tomorrow now -

there are more, but, all are mostly same. for me a backpack is preferable, with landing gear and range extender, but, that latter extender looks more like a snake oil. :) but, who knows.

and one more bundle - this one got aluminum pits joysticks, a different backpack and some set of cheap filters. as i got myself a tiffen set already - did not care, but, it exists. i think it is all from the $1499 bundles.

Just curious.... how DID the gearbest new year sale coupon work out?
i whined about it here several posts up. :) worked out with them keeping my order on hold in "non-shipped paid" status and responding that item is out of stock. shoulod have been re-stocked and shipped on 18th, it did not happen, in next chat they said it may be restocked at 25th-28th, so i cancelled and just got a refund on the paypal after initiating an escalation. may be if i waited for couple more months i would eventually get it, but, it is not what i want.

@Drone on, the Mavic 2 with Smart Controller is now available for purchase here. The DJI Store currently shows they are shipping 1 business day after payment confirmation.
