I know GoPro is always offering trade in deals, but I could not find a post on here about their current "$100 off a Hero 8 Black with the trade in of any old GoPro", or any digital camera period (so long as was originally worth over $100). This puts the price at $299 before tax, with free 2 day shipping. Says they will ship prior to the October 15th release.

For questions about what you can trade in:
https://gopro.com/help/articles/B...-Questions

This can be combined with the current Amex offer to get 6000 points or $60 back for spending $300, which effectively gets the price down to around $240 before tax, ymmv. Shipping is free. Do note that if you're not paying tax, you will need to add a filler item to hit the $300 mark, such as a filter for diving or a lanyard, etc.

They are also offering $50 off the Hero 7 Silver or Hero 7 Black, but keep in mind the Silver does not have a replaceable battery and the underwater case only goes to 40M (recreational diving limit).

I'm not recommending you upgrade or whether it is worth it; I wanted to upgrade an old Hero 4 Silver so I could use my Hero 7 Black batteries. The Hero 8 Black batteries are backwards compatible with the Hero 7 Black batteries, although they claim if you use the 7 Black batteries in the 8, you will be locked out of the highest bit rate options.

Get $100 off a GoPro Max

While this thread is about getting $100 off the GoPro8 with the trade-in offer or 25% coupon, the offer is only good for a GoPro8.

However if you want $100 off a GoPro Max, and you have access to a .edu email, you can get a 20% off coupon from UniDays. Multiple unique codes can be generated with UniDays.

GoPro Max $499 - $100 (20% coupon) = $399 - $60 (Amex Offer) = $339 +tax.

Don't forget to use your favorite CB site for another 5-7% off.

The 7 has a disastrous quality legacy. Read their forums on over heating and ruined vacations due to freezing. I wouldn't expect 8 to be better.
yeah, this sounds like my Sony RX100 V. Same issue only A LOT more money. I spent about 40 minutes diving and taking photos and videos thinking that it was working - light was blinking and yet no footage. Sure, could have somehow been "user" error, but outside of that it overheated constantly after 5 minutes of use. Then 10 minutes of idle time. Both underwater and above and in a 70degree house.

Not sure how long the GP7/GP8 takes to cool down, but it's sucks when that happens. I also saw that the GP8 uses the same processor as the GP7, so I guess we shouldn't expect any real refinements...

My 7 black did run surprisingly hot for short usage.. wasn't sure if it was just due to the hot summer this year and filming in a car.. but maybe not...

AFAIK, the Hero7 Black never dropped below $300.

So $300 for a Hero8 Black is going to be as good as it gets. The only difference is avoiding the hassle of a trade in.
Was it possible to combine the trade-up with sales on the gopro 7? It was discounted to $350 when DJI osmo action cam was released, but wasn't sure if it was stackable with the trade-up

Can it be an old smartphone with a shattered screen that has a camera on it? or am I better off getting an old camera off ebay? are there any conditions or restrictions about what the submitted old digital camera needs to be like?

I did this last year for the hero7, you trade in (shipping paid by gopro) any camera (working or not with an original msrp >$100) to receieve $100 off a new gopro.
This is now working on the hero 8 black (preorder).
Your new gopro wont ship until they receive your trade. Sweet deal for a camera that isnt even released yet.

https://gopro.com/en/us/shop/tradeup

The fine print:
1Any GoPro or digital camera with an original retail value of at least $99.99 USD (or equivalent value in local currency) is eligible for trade-in.




2Trade-in transactions are final; after you trade in your Eligible Used Device, you cannot get it back.


Terms + Conditions
Applies only to purchases of HERO8 Black or HERO7 Black cameras made on gopro.com and delivered in the United States. Cannot be combined with any other offers, discounts or promo codes, or applied to previous purchases.

Crap... it didnt show in the search or come to my hero8 notifications.. probably because the hero8 is mispelled in that one as hero*space*8.

Hero8 is mispelled in the title.. didnt hit my deal alerts. There is no space in hero8

*my post was merged with this one*

Betting this is as good as it gets just like the hero7 never dropped below 300.

Not sure if it's worth the upgrade from the 7. But I do have the AMEX offer...
From what I've read, no, not worth upgrading from a 7 black. 6 or older, yes worth the upgrade.

The batteries from the Hero 7 Black do fit and work in the Hero 8 Black.

However, you will not be able to do Hypersmooth 2.0 in 4K60p. They limit the most power hungry video options with the older batteries. But they still work fine for everything else; it's a total scam. They have the same mwh.
Wow how does the 8 know that you're using an older battery? Crazy that they can limit functionality based on how much draw a battery has.

I think someone mentioned it's probably a voltage / amp thing like flashlights. Some modern electronics can detect this, but I agree it's pretty cool. But, it does make you question if the GP8 runs even hotter.

Question.

I ordered but I did not received any email from Gopro to confirm my order. How long does it take?
Same here, but I did receive the trade up shipping label email.
