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.

Why, do you know for a fact that tax does not count? I would think all Amex would care about is that they see a $300 or greater charge. I wouldn't think they'd even know how the amount was calculated.

Basically the same deal as when Hero7 released. If continuing with the same pattern, some sweeter ones will come. HODL!

quick question on the trade-in pos camera, do they really enforce the $100 msrp rule?

Check out price is only $299. How does it qualify for the $60 off $300 Amex offer? (Does tax count?)

I take it that you need to add a cheap filler item worth 1 cent or more to qualify for the AMEX offer?

So, I have a few 10 year old sony and canon pocket cams that were way over $100. I don't have batteries any longer though.

Did anyone take advantage of the old H7 deal with potentially non-functional devices? I say potentially since I can't prove it works as it would cost me $10-20 for a battery.

What are you doing that a replacement is needed? Adding a wider lens as part of some of those mods?

I have a H3, H4, and H5 that have been pretty heavily abused (dropped, hit into rocks under water, etc) and while some of them have minor scratches they are not visible in the videos.

Sorry, I forgot to include that you will need to add a filler item like an extra battery, filter, lanyard, or something else!

I will edit the post.

You can buy replacement lenses pretty cheaply so if they get damaged, it's not really a big deal. Having it integrated means sending it in, GoPro is definitely trying to get you to sign up for their subscription care.
