New GoPro 9 just came out.

Deal only for this week is $50 off the retail price. Includes 1 year of their subscription unlimited cloud storage, free camera replacement, and 50% off accessories. Also includes a 32gb sd card. This is actually a really good deal considering the camera replacement insurance alone is another $50.

For $50 more they also have a bundle that includes several accessories.

The major changes from the Hero 8 are a front-facing screen (like the DJI), image stabilization now includes horizon stabilization, and it can record up to 5k video (vs. 4k)

I just ordered one and will report back on the real differences.

I had two hero 7 blacks go "bad" on me and was engaged in a 1.5 year fight with them over replacements on and off, only to find out that two out of three Samsung memory cards I bought off of Amazon as FP slick deals were fakes, and actually what caused my cameras to freeze, crash, fail to give me clear files at random. I felt like an idiot. I was so sure it was GoPro's fault.

Amazon gave me refunds for the cards even tho one was over a year old and I threw them in the trash.

Next memory cards I buy will be directly from Best Buy via price matching to Amazon.

That seems to be the best/safest solution.
Just adding two comments.

First, if you are already a gopro subscriber, they give you an additional discount on the camera. I am not, so I couldn't see what the discount actually was.

When you check out, they break out the subscription cost (49.99) separately from the bundle cost and ask you to acknowledge it. At first, I was confused and thought they were adding this to the total cost, but when I checked out, it wasn't added. I did have to pay tax, and 2-day shipping was free.
Glad they brought back the replaceable lens cover. That's the only thing i don't like about the Hero 8.

Now that I've purchased the camera, and have the "subscription" it looks like all of the accessories are at least 30% off, and two of them are 50% off.

They've changed the battery again. It is not compatible with the 8. Looking at the specs, the 8 battery is 1220mah, and the 9 battery is 1750mah, significantly larger. They are claiming at least 30% more runtime. bummed my old accessories won't work but happy that it is at least for a good reason.
Hi, could you tell us what discount the new Hero 9 battery qualifies for?

Thinking of upgrading from my H4 Black/Silver and I read that you pretty much have to use OEM batteries (unlike previous generations).

Given that I do not need the hand grip or magnetic mount, I would much rather get as many additional batteries to get to the same $399 bundle price (which includes one battery), i.e Would rather have x4 batteries (1 with camera + 3 additional) for $391 assuming 30% discount on batteries than x2 batteries + accessories for $399 with the bundle.
