Ok, let me know if I got this straight...

If I bought a super cheap “for parts only” GoPro off of eBay for like $40, or if I bought a super old Canon camera, for $5, as long as the MSRP was over $100, I could do the trade in thing?

That being said, if I take the (original) $350 deal with 1 year subscription for the HERO9, then after I buy the HERO9, and they have time to process my trade up, then I only would have to had paid $250 for a brand new HERO9, plus the subscription...?

It doesn't have to be a GoPro camera - it can be any camera, whether it is working or not.
From what I can see you do not get the $100 off of the Hero 9 with subscription deal, you get the $100 off of the full Hero 9 price. So the camera is $429 - you will get it for $329 by trading in a camera. If you want to add the subscription then that's separate at $50.
At least, when I just tried it on the EU site, they are the options I was given.

Overall, it still makes the camera + subscription deal at $349 better value.....

this is not that difficult to understand.

1. Clear as day Pick the camera you want (gopro Hero 9).
6595


Any broken camera 99.99 you must send in with the RMA label, within 45 days, once recieved, gopro them process the Order for the free 2-day delivery.

6596



tax may be added on final check out page. as it needs your zipcode for it and its not taken from $349.99.

So @Ifti you see its not going to combine promotions. its one or the other, the kicker is the sd card, is it Free, will the person get it. this is gopro's Marketing, you must really understand it, many do not read their Terms,

So you think that not trading in any camera, and just buying the $350 + subscription is the better way to go?

Ok, thanks. Sorry for the confusing thread, lol.

The HERO7 should come in on Wednesday. Assuming it’s not a scam, I can sell that and the HERO6, and make some serious profit.

Should I try to sell both on here? Or would I have better, faster luck on places like OfferUp, eBay, and Craigslist?

Yeh - thats what I did, even though I have an old Casio camera I could have traded in - I'll save that for another time! lol

Remember, with the subscription you also get 30% off of all GoPro accessories, and considering I'm looking to pick up the Max Lens Mod when its available, the discount could come in quite handy ;)

I generally wait for a cheap listing promotion on eBay ;)

YES. Very much so looking forward to that, along with the Media Mod and light. I have always wanted a light on my GoPro, and the silly flashlight and rubber and thing never worked, lol.

Ok, so I spoke to a GoPro live chat person yesterday and he helped me with all my questions.

So no, you can’t combine the Trade-Up with the discounted one.

So my plan is to sell my HERO6 (I already have it listed for $180) and sell the HERO7, when it comes in tomorrow. (If it isn’t a scam... :/)

I should be able to get around $250 for the HERO7, right?

Then with that money and some money I have saved up now, I’ll get the brand new HERO9 with the 1 year subscription. :)

Do not think you get top dollar on an out of warranty product, but good luck with that.

GoPro Marketing has been telling you about it. did I tell you about their royalty program that you don't need a trade-up or anything? you get the $100.00 with that. (wink)

Is there a link explaining their royalty program? Is that we’re they will give me $100 for any of my GoPro’s, but is not the Trade-Up?

I know I shouldn’t except top dollar, but I think $250 is far for a HERO7. I have nocked down the price of the HERO6 to $180, and it may go down hill from there...

I will still wait a few days.

I posted it twice, once on OfferUp and once on Craigslist. I’ll wait a few days, to see if someone offers more. He said $140 as his last offer so...
