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.

Math checks out. Cheers

But you're right, I completely forgot that all my chargers for the H4 will not work. I think I'll be pretty set with 2 batteries and a charger for $385 for the time being, and *hopefully* the aftermarket/third party is able to crack it and make decent batteries for the H9. I doubt it, but one can hope.
At $20 each for the batteries ($14 with this discount), I'm ok with buying OEM rather than risking it on cheaper alternatives.

That is, if you are spending $50 and getting free shipping. Otherwise $10 shipping kills the deal.

Oh, here's details on accessory discounts:

This says
  • 30% off batteries + chargers (though it doesn't list the HERO9 variants)
  • 50% off mounts including The Handler, Magnetic Swivel Clip, etc.
  • 30% off some other mounts
  • 30% off mods
  • 30% or 50% off bags and cases
  • 30% or 50% off other accessories

"Limited to a maximum of 10 items per subscription anniversary year."

If the The Handler and Magnetic Swivel Clip are 50% off, then it definitely doesn't make sense to buy the bundle.

Do NOT make the mistake of getting the bundle like I did. If you get the camera + subcription it will come out about $10 cheaper if you order the bundle items separate (assuming you want all bundle items).

Tried calling to change my order but it had shipped and turned into a hassle.

A bit dishonest offer/bundle if you ask me.

When I'm browsing the accessories, most of the GoPro-branded ones say
but the "Casey" cases do not.

Ooh, The Handler [] grip does not say that. It says BEST SELLER instead. The Suction Cup [] and Magnetic Swivel Clip []
don't say it either. Hmm.. we'll need a subscriber to confirm what items are discounted.

Everything is discounted, at least it was/is for Hero8. Theres a FAQ section with the list, look it up. Media mod and such are only 30% off IIRC. Battery for instance came down to 13$ a pop, IIRC. Dunno if the discounts changed for Hero9.
