DJI Valentine’s 2020 sale includes Tello, Osmo camera lineup

If your loved one hasn’t quite fallen in love with drones yet, here’s your hook. DJI Valentine’s 2020 sale is made up primarily of its Osmo products, leaving an opportunity for you to grab a gift for your loved one who might not yet have been bitten by the drone bug. The Osmo takes that silky, smooth drone look from the air to the ground. And once your Valentine falls in love with the impressive Osmo cinematography, they might just want a drone too. DJI’s Valentine’s 2020 sale offers gear up to 26% off, and runs between now and Feb. 14 at 11:59 p.m. ET in its U.S. store. Here’s what you’ll find in the DJI Valentine’s Day 2020 sale: Usual Price Sale Price Dollars saved Osmo Pocket $399 $309 $90 Osmo Action $379 $279 $100 Osmo Mobile 3 $119 $109 $20 Tello Boost Combo $168 $135 $33 The best two deals are the Osmo Pocket and Osmo Action, both two deals that were being offered during the 2019 DJI Black Friday sale. And good news if you regretted missing last month’s sale: as far as Osmo products go, the February sale is far better (though last month’s sale offered discounts on the Mavic 2, which you won’t find on sale this month). Plus, DJI now offers a program called DJI Credit where you can create an account for free. Once you do, you’ll earn 1% on every purchase made with DJI which you can apply toward a future purchase.
