    Does anyone have a good experience from a certain dealer when purchasing through Amazon? I'd really like to get the same buddle offered on DJI's site for the P3, extra battery, and case for $1249. Can't seem to find anything. Right now my discover card is offering 5% cash back when buying through amazon (or even a third party through amazon) which is why I want to use them. I was looking at the built drones (UAV outlet) store on amazon since I had seen some good reviews on here for them, but they do not appear to have the P3 advanced in stock.

    Thanks!

    Most, if not all of the "extra battery bundles" and the like have been sold out for a while, at least from US dealers.

    I bought mine from seller "Expert Drones" on Amazon since I had several saved up gift cards and redeemed CoinStar vouchers. I didn't see any bundles either but I was happy i basically got my P3A for "free" and at retail pricing. I believe they are an authorized retailer as well.

    I picked up a bundle about a month ago from DroneSource on Amazon, got here in 3 days and everything's been great.

    I bought from Amazon and also had to basically put my own bundle together. I was careful to make sure the main P3A and batteries were purchased somewhere in the US but didn't pay attn and got a bad, extra props & guards from a place in China. Those took FOREVER to arrive. Validate the expected arrival date if you're hoping to get it sooner than later.

    dporter177, there are other sellers on Amazon, but I don't recommend you buy from them since they are not authorized DJI dealers.

    B&H would have been my first choice if I wasn't getting a 5% discount through Amazon on my discover card. I ended up purchasing on Amazon through Camera Spot. They are based in Philly about a 20 min drive from my house, and are an authorized dealer. $999 no tax and free shipping. Thought it was my safest bet. Thanks all for the input.
