Amex Offers: GoPro
Last year, I launched a weekly YouTube channel highlighting my travels as well as doing office style tutorials. Most of the video I shot over the last few years was on a GoPro. In fact, while my main style of shooting is evolving as I go forward, I still plan on incorporating a GoPro as I find it’s super easy to mount, takes up little space, and has the ability to shoot pretty great footage. I think a lot of people think of GoPro being associated with extreme sports, but for me, it’s proven to be integral in capturing flying in a far more discreet manner than other cameras I’ve started to use.
I took advantage of this offer in 2019 and traded in my 6, but only got $50 for my trade in. One thing to note is that once you decide to trade in GoPro will send you a mailing label and you’ll need to send in your old camera. It took roughly 6 weeks for them to process my trade-in. The problem? My 8 wasn’t processed until after the trade in was received and processed, meaning it processed after the Amex Offer ended. Major bummer. I kept the Hero 8, and got a good deal, but ultimately missed out on the Amex Offer.
I still have my Hero 7 Black, but once we’re up in the air, I’m looking forward to incorporating the new Hero 8 . It’s a definite step up and the hypersmooth function is next level. That has been my biggest complaint with the 7 is the shaky results when walking, etc. From my initial shoots with the 8, it’s far smoother and 4k shoots in linear mode (the 7 was only fisheye), and the 8’s mount is far more integrated. You can use old batteries on the Hero 8, but it warns that some functions won’t work without the new Hero 8 batteries. Primarily this is because the 8’s battery facilitates a higher data transfer than the 7.
The Hero 8 package is $449 meaning you’d trigger the Amex Offer simply by purchasing the Hero 8 package. However, if you’re trading in, not only will the process be slowed, but the $100 is deducted from your purchase. Meaning your card will only be hit with $349 and below the $449 threshold to get the $90/9k points back. It may be worth throwing a couple new batteries on your order to optimize data , or even a dual battery charger on your package to eclipse the $449. I get a ton of use out of my dual charger.
Here’s a look at the Amex Offer:
This offer is also floating around with a 9k Membership Rewards bonus as well.
- Spend $449 get $90 back
- Must be purchased via GoPro.com or mobile app
