If you've ever listened to the iMore Show, you know how much we rave about Thrifter. We hate them because we love them. The deals they find are incredible and we burn holes in our pockets every time we visit. As an early Black Friday deal, Thrifter has an exclusive offer that you won't be able to find anywhere else. U.S. residents can enter for the chance to buy the Ring Doorbell Pro for just $100. No, that's not a mistype. It really is just $100, well, $99.95 to be precise.
The Ring Video Doorbell Pro retails for $240 and has never dropped below $180 at its lowest sale price. So, we're talking about a crazy good deal, here. The standard Ring Video Doorbell version 1 retails on Amazon for about $150, so you can get the upgraded Pro model for less than the first-generation standard model.
If you're thinking you can get the Ring Video Doorbell Pro somewhere else this Black Friday for $100, think again. Thrifter's impeccable research confirms that it won't drop below about $200 this year.
Who loves the Ring Video Doorbell? Everybody!
The Ring Video Doorbell Pro is the #1 best-selling doorbell kit on Amazon and 71% of customers gave it a 5 star rating based on more than 9,000 reviews.
Last holiday season, MobileNations' resident ol' man, Modern Dad (Phil Nickinson) reviewed the Ring Video Doorbell Pro and called it the best $200 you'll spend on home tech. If you browse through Modern Dad's YouTube channel, you'll see that he recommends the Ring Doorbell a lot.
Mr. Mobile (Michael Fisher) also featured the Rind Video Doorbell Pro in his 2017 roundup of home tech (with some help from Modern Dad).
Windows Central's Dan Rubino was impressed with how the Ring Video Doorbell Pro works with Windows (Rubino is not easily impressed).
O.K., you've got me, How do I sign up?
Thrifter had to do a lot of work to get a deal like this together. Thusly, there aren't a lot of units to sell at this price. So, in an effort to make sure no one is trying to cheat the system, they've come up with a process for which they'll randomly pick winners who will receive a discount code to be used at B&H Photo (if you're wondering whether B&H is legit, ask any professional photographer, they're one of the biggest photography retailers around). You have to sign up by Nov. 17 in order to qualify for the drawing.
- Enter the drawing using the widget above (or click on the Ring Video Doorbell Pro Exclusive Doorbuster link if you're on mobile) by the end of the day on Nov. 16.
- Check your email the morning of Nov. 17 to see if you've won.
- Enter the discount code you receive in your email at B&H Photo no later than the end of the day Nov. 17 (if you don't use your code by the end of the day on Nov. 17, your code will be voided and a new winner will be drawn).
Why so complicated?
As noted above, Thrifter had to do a lot of work to get a deal like this. There aren't that many to sell at such a low price. Sure, they could have simply thrown out a first-come-first-buy kind of offer, but then a bunch of product flippers and bots would buy up all of them, leaving you, the reader, without a snowball's chance in hell to actually buy one at such a low price. Is that fair?
Instead, Thrifter wants to make sure its readers are the ones getting the discount. So, they set up this process to ensure that entries are real people, not just bots trying to gobble up all the goodies for one or two greedy people. Fair, right?
All you have to do is use a legit email. It doesn't have to be your main email address (but it does have to be one you can get into so you can get the code if you win).
It's easy to sign up for Thrifter's doorbuster deal. It'll only take you a few minutes. If you're still confused about the process, give us a shout-out in the comments and we'll help make sense of it all.
