This offer applies to the purchase of a GoPro Hero 5 Black as well as the more compact Hero 5 Session. In exchange for returning your older model, owners will be given a $100 credit toward the purchase of a Hero 5 Black or $50 toward buying a Hero 5 Session.
How the GoPro Trade-Up Program works
GoPro has set up a dedicated trade-up website. Buyers can select which model they want, place their order and receive a shipping label for their old camera. GoPro will ship the new model at the discounted price once it has received the old camera.
Don’t worry about what condition your late-model GoPro is in. “Cameras can be in any condition – working or not – to be eligible for the Trade-Up Program,” the site reads. “Cameras can be dead, missing components or even melted in a fire, and we will take them!”
Do be sure to remove the memory card before shipping your old GoPro off to be recycled.
According to GoPro, this is a limited time offer, however no exact expiration date has been set at this time.
