    I was asked by @berkeley_ecar if I would consider organizing a third group buy for the Blackvue 650 2 channel dashcam. It has been some time since the second group buy, so I thought, "why not?"

    I contacted the company, Rear View Safety, and they were willing to once again provide the dashcams for $310, plus shipping, as before.

    Here are links to the original thread and to the thread for the second round:
    Blackvue 650 (Dashcam) Group Buy for $310, including 32 Gig card and Power Magic Pro

    Blackvue 650 (Dashcam) Group Buy, Round 2 - $310, including 32 Gig Card



    Here is the relevant information:

    The current price on Rear View Safety's website for the Blackvue 650, with a 32 gig card is $379.99:
    DR650S-2CH | Blackvue 2 Channel 32GB Dash Camera | Rear View Safety

    The price they will offer for the group buy is again $310!

    (Note that this time, like last time, the Powermagic Pro, which we don't really need with our cars anyway, is not included. It actually wasn't supposed to be included the first time either, but they did include it, due to some miscommunication.

    You may order by phone, or via their website. If ordering by phone, please call James at (800) 764-1028, ext 725, and reference discount code TESLALOVESRVS. If you order via their website, just make sure to use the discount code.

    Rear View Safety will honor this price through the end of February, 2017.

    (I just want to say, for the record, that I'm not receiving anything for arranging this again.)

    Order away!

    In!!

    Thanks.

    edit: I'm actually likely in for three. One for my ICE (that dashcam died), one for my wife's ICE (she always wanted a dashcam), and one possibly for another Model S I'm looking at trading up into.

    Massdrop: Bringing Enthusiasts Together

    This one is $259.99

    It's only 16 GB of memory instead of 32 GB though.

    Shipping was also about $10 cheaper through Massdrop over that site you linked.

    That looks interesting, though there is a slight difference in the specs. (The Massdrop camera includes the 16 gig card and the one from Rear View Safety includes a 32 gig card.)

    I don't know much about Massdrop, and whether or not those cameras would be considered sold by an authorized Blackvue dealer or not. But if you don't mind waiting, that may be a better deal.

    That looks like a great deal, and it even includes the Power Magic Pro. And it appears to be coming directly from Blackvue, so there should be no issues with warranty. ('m not certain about that, so don't act based on my thoughts, please.)

    The one issue I see is that the above seems to be some limited offer that says it is 100% claimed. There is an option to join a waiting list. I'm not familiar with how that works on Amazon.

    In general, though, that looks really good.

    Well, I'm baffled. When I pull up this Amazon document, I see a price of $399, not $271. I'm not a Prime member, perhaps that
    explains it? Or perhaps it has something to do with the "limited offer" issue raised by Andyw2100?

    That's what I see now too, along with a small note in the upper right section of the screen that says, "Lightning Deal has sold out."

    It was a lightning deal, which are time limited and a fixed number of stock available. It would have expired 1/24 at 11:45 pm PST if it had not sold out... i think.

    i was able to get it with the 64gb card for $290

    Since the deals get a lot better, I'll wait for one before I buy.

    Massdrop 1-Year Limited Warranty

    Directly from the description. Massdrop is working directly with Blackvue.

    Well, then that seems like a good deal, as long as people are willing to wait for it.
