(Adam) #1

I haven’t seen this posted yet but my local Costco has the ring Doorbell with chime for $179.99. I’m planning on picking one up the next time I’m there.

ring vs ring pro
this was great that it included at chime (msrp ring alone was 199). good deal. keep an eye out at Home depot; some were clearance the ring (50to100) to make room for ring pro.

If you have Verizon Wireless, they have their BS smart rewards system. It’s mostly you get to use a specific amount of points on a product to buy things at their normal sale prices.

BUT you can use 4100 points to pay $158+tax for the Ring Doorbell. It’s no home depot clearance, but it’s something.

Thanks for posting the deal! For future reference, please post deals you find in the deals thread :slight_smile:

They created a deals category for us so that each deal can be it’s own thread under the category … =)

@Takeagabu
Regarding Verizon, what does this part mean?..

I just went there and checked on my status, and signed up for their rewards program, but not sure what the ‘BS’ part means. Is that just the normal meaning (male-cow-dung) in the context of kooky ‘discount programs’, etc (totally understood)? If so, makes sense…I just wanted to make sure I’m not missing anything :slight_smile:

The reason I said BS is because you can only redeem a fixed amount of points for each item, and then you have to redeem that exact amount of points and the remaining amount of money. The first time I checked it out, it seemed like the remaining amount of money was generally a normal sale price. Although maybe the deals did get better.

For the Ring Doorbell, It is $199 - 4100 point = $158

Yea @benji , get with the times :heart: (miss ya btw!)

The demand was too high. More importantly, I keep missing deals the community finds… so it’s ultimately easier for me. HAHAHA! :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

I bought the Ring doorbell with Chime at Costco 2 weeks ago - and I returned it yesterday. I’m really glad I bought it at Costco, because they have an amazing return policy.

For me, the Ring was too slow - the motion detector either went off all the time or only went off after the person had left the porch. The camera was really low quality - I have a porch and anything outside the shade of the porch was a white blur and you couldn’t see anything beyond a few feet.

Once you add in the fact that you can’t do any “live view” - yet - it’s just pretty much useless for me - except as an actual doorbell. So I bought a new outdoor camera and an actual doorbell and I’ll set that up this week.

have you tried the kuna? I like it :X

I was seriously considering it. But I have 2 porch lights, so I’d have to spend $330-ish to buy the camera one and the dummy one from their site.

I ended up buying the Outdoor Samsung Smartcam HD - mainly because I’m used to the SmartCam app and the onboard storage is solid.

You got your fancy schmancy new job and now you don’t write, you don’t call… :stuck_out_tongue:

Hahahah. I don’t even have time to write to anyone in my life… More than half my life is now up in the air. I probably have more miles than a pilot.

Any discounts on the Pro currently? Thanks
