The Ring Video Doorbell essentially redefined home security. The Ring brand, acquired by Amazon in 2018,1 is largely responsible for making doorbell cameras a household name, and today offers eight doorbell models as well as a full suite of indoor and outdoor cameras and alarm systems.
With the Prime Big Deal Days 2023 finally here – it runs from October 10 to 11– we’re already seeing lots of great deals and special offers on Ring’s uber-popular doorbells. Should you take the bait and take advantage of these deals? Are they worth it? Let’s find out.
Ring Prime Day October Discounts: What’s Out There?
Amazon’s big October sale is here, and deals on Ring doorbells abound. What’s more, they certainly rival this year’s July Prime Day, considered Amazon’s biggest sale event of the year. We’ll give you details on deals from that sale for context, but for now, let’s focus on the present.
Here are Ring’s current Prime Big Deal Days discounts, both for individual doorbells and video doorbell bundles.
|Ring doorbells and bundles||Discount||Discounted price|
|Ring Video Doorbell Wired||46% off||$34.99|
|Ring Video Doorbell Wired + Chime||38% off||$49.99|
|Ring Video Doorbell||45% off||$54.99|
|Ring Battery Doorbell Plus||28% off||$129.99|
|Ring Video Doorbell Pro||41% off||$99.99|
|Ring Video Doorbell Pro 2||40% off||$149.99|
|Ring Video Doorbell Pro 2 with Chime Pro||$100 off||$209.98|
If you’re looking for a budget option, we recommend the Ring Video Doorbell as it supports both wireless and wired setup and it comes with a 45-percent discount right now, reducing the price to $54.99.
If you’re looking for something a little more advanced, however, go with the Pro 2. It’s one of Ring’s most advanced doorbells ever, and with the 40-percent discount, you’ll instantly save $100 compared to its regular retail price.
Now, as we alluded to earlier, this year’s October Prime sale offers similar deals to the July Prime Day sale we just had a few months prior – at least when it comes to individual doorbell prices. Take a look:
Ring’s Past Prime Day Discounts
|Ring doorbell model||Prime Day 2023 price|
|Video Doorbell Wired||$34.99 (46% off)|
|Video Doorbell (latest release)||$54.99 (45% off)|
|Battery Doorbell Plus (new)||$129.99 (28% off)|
|Video Doorbell Pro 2||$149.99 (40% off)|
|Peephole Cam||$99.99 (23% off)|
What might be a little different is that we’re not seeing a lot of bundles right now like we did during the July sale. There are a few bundles available, like the Ring Pro 2 with Chime Pro, but the discount comes from the Ring Pro 2 deal ($100 off). Ring doesn’t offer special discounts for bundling – at least for now – but if they decide to do so, they might look like something like these bundle deals from the July Prime Day sale:
|Ring doorbell||Bundled item||Bundle price||Discount|
|Ring Video Doorbell||Echo Show 5||$64.99||66%|
|Ring Video Doorbell Wired||Echo Pop||$39.99||62%|
|Ring Video Doorbell Wired||Ring Chime||$49.99||38%|
|Ring Video Doorbell||Ring Stick Up Cam Battery||$99.99||50%|
|Ring Video Doorbell||Ring Indoor Cam||$79.99||50%|
|Ring Video Doorbell 3||Ring Alarm Pro 8-piece and Echo Show 8||$419.97||33%|
|Ring Battery Doorbell Plus||Ring Floodlight Cam Wired Pro and Ring Indoor Cam||$409.97||16%|
|Ring Battery Doorbell Plus||Ring Spotlight Cam Plus||$219.99||37%|
|Ring Video Doorbell Pro 2||Ring Alarm 14-piece and Floodlight Cam Wired||$439.99||44%|
|Ring Video Doorbell Wired||Ring Alarm 5-piece||$154.98||39%|
The deals ebbed and flowed throughout the two-day sale in July. That’s not unusual at these Amazon sales, so pay close attention and keep checking the Prime Big Deal Days page on Amazon’s website for the latest offers. Watch out specifically for bundled deals. There might not be any right now, but who knows?
Despite the current lack of bundled deals, though, we still think this year’s October Prime Day offers better discounts than last year. Here are the deals we saw last year:
- Ring Video Doorbell (2020 release) was $69.99, 30 percent off its regular price.
- Ring’s most affordable video doorbell, the Ring Video Doorbell Wired, was $39.99, 38% off its regular price.
- Pair a Ring Video Doorbell Wired with an Echo Show 5 ($150 total value) for as low as $59.99.
- Pair a Ring Video Doorbell (2020 release) with an Echo Show 5 ($185 total value) for only $79.99.
- Ring Video Doorbell Wired and a Ring Chime for $69.99.
- Ring Alarm 8-piece security system with a Ring Video Doorbell Wired for $244.98.
- Ring Alarm 8-piece security system with a Ring Video Doorbell Wired and Echo Show 5 for $244.98.
